Summary Dismissal Discussion

Commit isn't worth the space in your sideboard (and memory puts you at a disadvantage) id suggest Summary Dismissal, Ceremonious Rejection or extra copies of Sweltering Suns or Essence Scatter instead (to help your marvel/aggro matchups)

@saintyyy glad u like the deck. You can link his deck if you want for me to look at. I am about to make a few edits to make the deck more effective.

@lords2001 I am going to add in Declaration in Stone over Grasp of Darkness or possibly even Fatal Push. The only thing that should cause issues with is Heart of Kiran but I have so much artifact hate because of Marvel I should be okay. That will also make zombies, emerge, and Metalwork Colossus (since usually 3 hit and all 3 are exiled and can't come back) a bit less potent.

Kalitas is being for the most part useless on cockatrice testing nor do I own any atm or want to pay for it when it will rotate soon. It just dies to Grasp of Darkness the moment it comes out against zombies. I will add 1 more Cataclysmic Gearhulk in the side, it is proving very effective against a variety of decks. It wipes the board and is a big body with vigilance that swings every turn and can still block. I will also add a Summary Dismissal in the side. I don't know if I am going to still go with Dispossess or switch to Lost Legacy or Transgress the Mind. I am also thinking of adding 1 Linvala, the Preserver back in the mainboard. I am going to put my Anticipate back in though, was trying to test the deck without them and more lands because of the cycle lands, I like having both for even mroe consistency. Just thinking of options. This deck went about 80-15 during testing on cockatrice for all of AER standard, the thing about control is figuring out the right answers. The meta changed, the answers have to change, as soon as I get it dialed in though the deck should be fairly unstoppable. I also need to write a primer about the deck, so hopefully that comes soon, have to play around with the code and formatting for it.

Also, don't forget to upvote the deck if you like it!

Declaration in Stone may not seem the best answer to Marvel, but I often find it is. You can remove their tokens en masse without requiring a sweeper, and it hits Gearhulk/Ulamog. Alongside some copies of Anguished Unmaking to hit plainswalkers and Marvel, it works quite well.

Another option can be Jace, Unraveler of Secrets as its - option can return Ulamog to hand, which is the worst place for it until they can hard cast it.

Final option is Summary Dismissal as it can hit abilities on the stack from a Marvel cast too. Its expensive and painful, but it does the job.

This looks really good. Only minor thought I have is swapping a Spell Snare for a Mana Leak as Spell Snare is a bit narrow. Also might consider Summary Dismissal in the side against storm/ large Eldrazi with cast triggers. Overall I like the deck.

Summary Dismissal is awfully expensive for a counterspell. I assume it's meant to counter Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger? The problem i see is that if you are on the draw, your Marvel opponent might get to cast an Ulamog on turn 4 or 5, and it's not a great plan to try and use a 4 cmc spell to defend against that, since you only have access to 3-4 mana at that point. So either you can't even use your spell, or you have to keep 4 lands untapped forever. Ceremonious Rejection, on the other hand, is much better at preventing Aetherworks Marvel from even entering the board in first place, so i would prefer this much cheaper tool, even if it's less powerful.

I think I will start with Dispossess and Summary Dismissal, and I will keep the By Force since it can deal with resolved Marvels while even killing a few Thopters in the process.

ok guys: In the last few days, I've been losing to Marvel more than I'm comfortable with. It's official, everyone is now on Marvel's dick.

We don't need to make drastic changes but I'm considering swapping the slots of Kefnet, Final Reward and possibly By Force for more tools against that particular matchup. Is it gonna be more Negate, Void Shatter, Disallow and/or is it worth to consider more ''exotic'' stuff such as Summary Dismissal, Overwhelming Denial, Confiscation Coup!? What's it gonna be! State your cases! :D

When a spell or ability is countered, the costs are not refunded. Planeswalker abilities have a cost of adding or removing counters from the Planeswalker, and those counters are added/removed before you have a chance to cast Summary Dismissal and will not retroactively be reversed by it's resolution.

TL;DR - Yes, the counters stay removed (or added).
