Dissipate

Instant

Counter target spell. If that spell is countered this way, remove it from the game instead of putting it into its owner's graveyard.

HunterClaise-Counterspell is not modern legal but it would be better. Dissipate is too high costing in modern for a counterspell. manaleak is cheap and allows me to use more mana on my turn and still gets the job done most of the time.

Why not use Counterspell or Dissipate instead of Mana Leak? That way if an opponent does have it'll still be countered. I do enjoy the deck though. Always have to love infinite mana and mana dorks!

Izu_Korasu on Edh good copy deck

Spitting Image has a blue/green color identity so it isnt legal in a mono-blue edh/commander deck.

Stunt Double, Fated Infatuation, Mirror Match, Gigantoplasm, Sakashima's Student and Tempt with Reflections may be useful additions to the deck.

Ghostly Flicker type effects also seem useful.

also Void Shatter/Dissipate/Faerie Trickery/Counterspell/Arcane Denial are all upgrades to Cancel

I wouldn't suggest her anyway, she's horrible with countermagic :P

4 Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver is surely too much. Drawing too many is bad; the card does nothing against a lot of decks such as Affinity/Infect/Burn. Why not play something like a Jace, Architect of Thought, Ob Nixilis Reignited, or Tamiyo, the Moon Sage to have win conditions that you can play in addition to Ashiok, but still get value/CA/more removal?

If we're doing Dragonlord Silumgar, you've got to do Crux of Fate. Flavour win + doesn't kill your own guy + cheaper than Finale. 4 mana is ideal for a sweeper, of course, but barring that owing to budget - though MM17 reprints should help with Damnation - Crux is the closest we can go.

Consider Fatal Push, Far / Away, and Geth's Verdict as replacements for the removal you have now; particularly Curse of Chains and Last Gasp. Instant speed edicts are very powerful, and Push is an obvious not-too-expensive upgrade over the Gasp. Murderous Cut, Hero's Downfall and Dismember are also not particularly expensive, and are all better than Doom Blade.

Consider Deprive for countermagic. It's a tempo loss, I'll grant you, but it's unconditional. Alternatively, just play Countersquall or Negate. I'm just not sold on Rune Snag, is all, but I could be very wrong, and perhaps the card has performed really well for you? Some small number of 3 mana countermagic like Disallow and Dissipate might not be the worst either. Yes, I like Dissolve, but scry 1 is not as important as exile or Stifle against Eldrazi, planeswalkers, etc.

Think Twice over some number of Telling Time and Divination. Instant speed, allowing you to hold up countermagic; 2 for 1, resilient to countermagic - def. seems like an upgrade over your current card draw spells. Also with regard to card draw, Jace's Ingenuity is a better restock spell than Divination. Instant speed draw 3 is quite good, and it is also sadly the best non Ancestral Vision option in the format. Further consider Shadow of Doubt. The card is backbreaking if you time it right, and worst case scenario, it replaces itself.

You don't want to scoop to resolved walkers, nor do you want to scoop to artifacts/enchantments; Hero's Downfall can take care of the former, while Engineered Explosives with a manabase of fetches and shocks is the best Dimir can do for the latter in Modern. That said, Ratchet Bomb can do a reasonable Explosives imitation a good deal of the time. Also definitely consider Extirpate in the board. It's not as expensive as Surgical Extraction but in a draw-go shell is arguably more powerful. It is also one of your only few ways to interact with graveyard based strategies since you don't have much direct exile or Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet. While the traitor I would recommend absolutely, I understand he is perhaps too expensive for what you have in mind.

Last, but not least, AEtherling. A lot of Modern decks concede to a resolved Aetherling.

With regard to the manabase, consider Sunken Hollow, Creeping Tar Pit, Temple of Deceit and Darkslick Shores as potential replacements for Evolving Wilds. Tar Pit is the only non-budget suggestion in that list, with the other lands being fairly cheap, and powerful in their effects. You should also be able to accommodate no small number of Ghost Quarter, which may shore up the Eldra/Tron matchup and give you better play against manlands from Raging Ravine to Celestial Colonnade to Inkmoth Nexus, and utility lands in the form of Gavony Township, Academy Ruins, etc.

I've been tinkering with Dimir in Modern for over a year now, and have perhaps spent a touch more time on the archetype than perhaps is healthy. :D I'm sorry about how long that was, but hopefully this is helpful!

try Dromoka's Command, its a nice way to have creatures fight, (choose the +1/+1 and the fighting ability).

also, Dissipate is a tough, slow counterspell, so since you just want it to be more costly for people to try to save their creatures, try Spell Pierce, Spell Snare, Mana Leak, etc. or just Dispel since thats a nice way to stop ppl from countering your pump and fight spells, you don't need to dissipate those. Nice deck! why not try a Foe-Razer Regent?

Hipparion on Crux of Fate except they didn't fight.

I use Dissipate instead of Disallow because Dissipate exiles the countered spell and isn't colorless like Void Shatter so it can't be countered by Ceremonious Rejection.

Disallow as flexible as it is usually just ends up being an 8$ version of Cancel but would definitely put it in the sideboard against other blue/Green ETB decks. Xd
