Unsummon occurrence in decks from the last year
Commander / EDH:
All decks: 0.01%

How does the timing work between a card like Unsummon and Etrata, the Silencer because I always thought that whole paragraph would happen at the same time. Can you interrupt the effect between the exiling and the shuffling?

Giorgiod: First of all, thanks for your interest, and please let me know how playing the deck works out for you. =D I'd love to get feedback on the deck in a different meta.
As for a sideboard. Tbh, eh not really, lol. I play mostly casual/kitchen table, plus I literally have over 50 pauper decks built so I don't get to play them all as much as they deserve.
That being said, were I to bring this deck to a LGS and play it, I would probably swap Stoic Rebuttal for straight-up Counterspell as suggested above, and leave maybe one or more Stoic Rebuttals in the sideboard for counter-wars with other blue decks.
I only have the one copy of Welding Jar or else I'd have more in the deck also, so put some of those in the sideboard too.
Apostle's Blessing is one of the best defense spells in pauper imho, so if you face a lot of removal, there's that.
Echoing Truth is versatile enough to hit any permanent, so kind of a board wipe, but can also get rid of Treasure, Food, etc. depending on what you face.
Beyond that, I usually go very general with my sideboards, so creature removal (Searing Light, Smite, Celestial Flare), artifact removal (Fragmentize, Dispeller's Capsule) and enchantment removal (Demystify). And sometimes you can double up the effects on one card to "save space" in your sideboard, as you can see. =)
Hopefully that jumble of ideas provides some help to you! =D Have fun, and let me know how you like the deck and if it needs any major adjustments or whatnot! Thanks!

Didn't Say Please a milling Counter.
also i think adding Mystic Sanctuary can be good to reuse one of the milling sorcery

Consuming Aberration doesn't fit. turn 5 pass, is not fast. we want to win on turn 5. combo- Drowned Secrets Fraying Sanity in play turn 5 Merfolk Secretkeeper adventure play Merfolk Secretkeeper from exile, Unsummon and play both parts of merfolk again for 36 which assuming you went first thats at least 47 cards of 60 gone. The problem is that's assuming they do nothing to you during all that.... Didn't Say Please and Thought Collapse counter everything and mill plus they're blue so... downed secrets triggers! Good way to say "bad opponent! your cards belong in the graveyard, not in play!" However, this doesn't balance out the deck. We need better draw. i personally like Into the Story but Chemister's Insight is also very good. Just hold up mana against opponent's that interact a lot with counter spells and respond at the end of turn with a draw spell or Unsummon that creature that can kill you this combat or whatever. The trick to a fast mill deck is being able to keep your hand full, mana open, and able to mill some amount of cards every turn. so i would remove Consuming Aberration Jace, Memory Adept Chronic Flooding maniac scribe and the lands that produce black mana. then i would add more Island you need 23-24 land. Into the Story or Chemister's Insight Didn't Say Please and Thought Collapse Unsummon and sideboard Run Away Together This should have you consistently milling your opponent by turn 5 if not by 6. hope this helps and good luck.

Funkydiscogod Thank you very much for the suggestions! I did most of the changes you said above, to change into pioneer. Slip Through Space and Unsummon , and some adjustments to those already in. I have to get my hands on Verdurous Gearhulk though, for the budget its the best creature I can find as well
After some casual pioneer playing with friends that have... invested more into the format, I just had to add Negate as well, two opponents with planeswalkerbased decks needed it... :P
Again, thank you very much for the tips!

pistolpeteiii: Thanks! It's funny; my current standard deck on Arena is also Mono-U, and it is completely different. It utilizes a lot of tempo-control, like Gadwick, the Wizened , Brazen Borrower , and Unsummon , to push win cons like Brineborn Cutthroat . Didn't even put 2-and-2 together that Wavebreak Hippocamp is far more suited to that completely different Mono-U deck.
I will look into your suggestions and see how it goes. The other advice I received was good, but I think was caught up in not distinguishing the two decks I just outlined like me. For example, I had Mu Yanling, Sky Dancer included but opted it out, etc.
Now that I made the distinction I'm going to push this to a better, more clean cut direction.

Also, there are plenty of BUG decks already made, I think the idea of a UG tempo/control deck is pretty interesting though. You could replace some of your black removal with bounce spells and add in a few more creatures or planeswalkers to add pressure or to deal with opposing creatures. Courser of Kruphix , Tireless Tracker , and Thing in the Ice Flip come to mind. In any deck (but especially this one) Brazen Borrower will be amazing, I really like Frilled Mystic and Hydroid Krasis , but they might be a bit too expensive to run 8 total. If I were to make a UG tempo deck, I'd have Thing in the Ice Flip, Brazen Borrower , and maybe two other creatures and pack the rest of the deck with Opt , Unsummon , Censor , etc. with room for a few green bombs of your choice ( Tireless Tracker and Hydroid Krasis are good for that).

Depending on what you're wanting it for, Hunted Troll can be replaced. Clackbridge Troll is the only other one that gives opponents creatures, but I think you're just looking for a big creature to beat your opponents with. Verdurous Gearhulk is probably your best replacement, even if you just play it as a 8/8 trample for 5.
Echoing Truth doesn't have a perfect replacement in your colors: Selective Snare is the closest answer to Hunted Troll faeries. Bile Blight and Legion's End in black. Declaration in Stone Detention Sphere and Deputy of Detention in white. As long as you don't need to answer tokens you gave the opponent, there are plenty of options: Disperse Expel from Orazca Perilous Voyage Cyclonic Rift Brazen Borrower Simic Charm .
