Summary Dismissal Discussion

Xephon_ on Exchanging control of a counterspell ...

1 week ago

Also, P1 later makes a comment at some point saying that you can cast a counterspell at any time, but if there's nothing on the stack it just won't do anything.

Again, I disagreed with him. I said in order to cast Counterspell it must have a legal target at the time of casting since it says target and the only time he is right is for counterspells like Summary Dismissal which don't say to target.

Am I going insane or do my friends simply not know the rules?

Into the Story - Can suck early game and grave hate or shuffling wheels exacerbate this. My version of baral plays lots of time spiral effects. But this does intrigue me

Mindbreak Trap / Summary Dismissal - Is this to counter the uncounterable?

Vex - We can do better

Estrid's Invocation - Why?

Marit Lage's Slumber - Too slow and unimpactful

Bond of Insight - Better recursion, fuels graveyard decks, but is interesting

Mass Manipulation - Too expensive

Plea for Power - I have a love hate relationship with this card. But it's always hurt me more than it's helped.

Murmuring Mystic - Worse talrand is not needed

Elixir of Immortality - No purpose?


Let me know if you want some ideas for stuff to add

Fenryr Haha mana rocks are something one might find in a pawn shop after murdering its broker... I had some signets in originally, and honestly might put some back in because getting Merieke out by 3 is critical. I agree on the counters- thinking Arcane Denial , Insidious Will , Summary Dismissal or even Punish Ignorance , though Rewind and Cryptic Command would be better at 4 mana. Definitely keep the others you mentioned in mind as well. Thanks for the upvote!

Since Unearth's "Exile it at the beginning of the next end step." is a delayed triggered ability, anything that counters triggered abilities will work.

Also from the oracle rulings regarding Summary Dismissal :

7/13/2016 Only activated and triggered abilities on the stack are countered. Static abilities of objects remain unaffected, and activated and triggered abilities of objects may be activated or may trigger again later in the turn. Spells and abilities that have already resolved aren’t affected.

Just as a precaution to misplays and better understandings of card interactions, does Summary Dismissal do the same thing (not literally) in the case of unearth that a Stifle would?
