Summary Dismissal Discussion

Entrei on Esper Alignment control

1 hour ago

Pretty nice! +1 for doing the same general thing I am. One thing though: given how abundant turn 3/4 kills are in standard at the moment, may I suggest Disallow, Summary Dismissal or Ceremonious Rejection?

Here is my version of it if you would like to check it out Esper Hedron Alignment

Void Shatter or Summary Dismissal over Spell Shrivel, surely?

The Yahenni's Expertise seems to go poorly with the Spell Quellers. Perhaps a bit more spot removal or board sweeping effects instead of the more vulnerable Quellers?

Maybe it is even worth maindecking a hard wrath, like Crux of Fate or Fumigate or End Hostilities. Larger creatures are more likely to bother you than smaller ones, after all, given Fatal Push and Grasp of Darkness.

Also, Glimmer of Genius with Torrential Gearhulk is absolutely delightful.

Have you had any consistency issues with the dragon clause of Silumgar's Scorn?

@slaftergames: Thanks for the +1 and the suggestion! Initially I wasn't a huge fan, but after thinking about it Guile and Arcanis the Omnipotent are two of the more effective ways to get to victory (stealing other people's spells and massive card draw). Swapped out Summary Dismissal for it. Thanks!

3 Void Shatter--Out with Spell Shrivel against Delirium.

2 Sphinx of the Final Word--Swap with Linvala, the Preserver in control mirror.

2 Insidious Will--Bring in against burn, Electrostatic Pummeler builds, and similar aggro builds. Might also be useful against certain control match ups with a lot of removal.

2 Summary Dismissal--Auto include against control and Aetherworks Marvel.

1 Stasis Snare--Against WU Flash, creature heavy, ramp, and vehicles.

3 Dispel--Against any kind of removal or control. If against control, go -1 Fumigate and -2 Stasis Snare.

2 Quarantine Field--Your only way to deal with planeswalkers. You may find yourself taking out Dynavolt Towers for these quite often.

All-in-all I think we've made something solid. Keep me posted! :-)

First of all, this needs two more lands. Most control decks cannot afford to miss land drops, and yours in no exception. 25 lands at least, in standard control.

Perpetual Timepiece does nothing for you, and makes room for your extra lands.

Fatal Push should be a 4-of, as it's your only early game interaction.

Glimmer of Genius should be 4-of, as it's your best form of draw.

Insidious Will isn't good - replace with Summary Dismissal to have some utility against a planeswalker's abilities. Replace Disappearing Act with the strictly-better Disallow.

Delirium is still a thing in standard - Startled Awake  Flip is very dangerous for you to play. I'd cut it.

Fumigate is a must have. Probably as a 2-of. You have very little creature removal in the deck, you need a panic button. Demon of Dark Schemes is good, but not if you don't have ways to kill creatures.

Cut Renegade's Getaway, cut Leave in the Dust, cut Pressure Point. They don't do enough. That leaves you with one more slot- I'd say maybe one more Torrential Gearhulk?

You make an excellent argument for dropping Red from the board and making this more consistent with two colors. However, in a bid not to be like every other control style deck that will be out there, I opted for Grixis, in part because I feel like this gives me enough diversity to kill multiple types of decks.

To be fair, Yahenni's Expertise is a great card, and would allow me to cut Radiant Flames.

I could cut Harnessed Lightning for a mix of Grasp of Darkness and Fatal Push.

You are right, Unlicensed Disintegration could become Murder or Ruinous Path depending on my Meta.

And I could drop the Fevered Visions from the sideboard in lieu of a different sideboard tactic against control.

I have considered all of these cuts to make a more consistent U/B Control Deck List. However, to be more competitive, I would need to cut Tezzeret the Schemer and Metallurgic Summonings as they are far more gimmicky when compared to a true competitive build. It would probably look something like this:

2x Fatal Push

4x Grasp of Darkness

4x Anticipate

2x Negate

3x Disallow

2x Void Shatter

2x Murder

2x Ruinous Path

4x Glimmer of Genius

4x Torrential Gearhulk

2x Liliana, the Last Hope

1x Jace, Unraveler of Secrets

1x Ob Nixilis Reignited

4x Sunken Hollow

4x Choked Estuary

4x Submerged Boneyard

3x Evolving Wilds

6x Island

6x Swamp

And the sideboard would look like:

2x Dispel

2x Fatal Push

1x Negate

3x Transgress the Mind

3x Yahenni's Expertise

3x Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet

1x Summary Dismissal

Overall though, while my version is a bit more gimmicky, it does afford me the opportunity to play the cards I enjoy and to still play a control style build that I like. Thanks for the upvote and the suggestions.

RingweMakil on Dark Visions

Wirox, that is an interesting suggestion - potentially I could replace even the Flaying Tendrils in the side with the Expertise. It could be that I need to replace Bile Blight with an Expertise; I tend towards Blight because it is a 2 mana kill spell - but I will certainly test this, thank you for the suggestion. If I am consistently casting Ancestral Vision off Expertise, I will add it to the deck. If not, I don't think it will be enough value.

Liliana of the Veil is not good with my countermagic, unfortunately; I prefer Jace as a way to slow down aggro, stop Young Pyromancer and Lingering Souls shenanigans and win the game off his ultimate (Liliana does not win the game on ultimate - given that I want to be maintaining a clear board state, she'll be hitting a bunch of lands and maybe one creature).

Worth noting that usually I'll just concede game 1 against Tron because most of my deck is terrible against it. Post board, though - out goes all the removal including Engineered Explosives besides Hero's Downfall, to be replaced by Transgress the Mind, Extirpate, Geth's Verdict, Summary Dismissal, Disdainful Stroke, and Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver.

I'd also suggest 2 x Disallow and -2 x Summary Dismissal - The summary dismissal was b/c of Emrakul, the Promised End, now you may face an Elder Deep-Fiend or an Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger, but there's a lot more you'll be missing..
