Unsummon Discussion

TrEndKillHerEsy on MultiFolkiN

After playing the cancel aspect I decided to toss it entirely as it serves a purpose this deck cant truly really on. As I was playing I really found myself not needing the Wizard's Retort . My Negate served a much better purpose. Yes the cancel came in use sometimes but I felt myself needing better versatility. I've decided to go with the very useful Dive Down and Unsummon in my main board as they are far more versatile and much cheaper cost wise. It really helped the manna curve. I would have really like the Cancel aspect to work but found my side board is more then enough to do what I needed. I've considered removing my Repudiate / Replicate and Spell Pierce from the side board to add in Wizard's Retort . Haven't really had the chance to see my Repudiate / Replicate in action yet so removing it will be a matter of just seeing how it could works. Thanks again.

Flooremoji, yeah that's not a bad idea at all. I only have Unsummon and Hubris in right now but I would definitely consider putting more in. Do you have any recommendations?

Cool deck! Elvish Pioneer is a cool-looking card, but I agree he's hard to work with. Bonus points for trying though, because I've tried to use him in a couple decks before, too.

Do you think something like Mutagenic Growth or Slip Through Space would help avoid problem creatures? Or maybe a simple Unsummon that could bounce your cheap creatures to be recast, and also work as removal?

Sorry About the Delay.

So far I have a few suggestions:

I hope that this wasn't too overwhelming. If you need any more help just let me know!

Well, to me Isperia the Inscrutable seems really fun. A deck of fliers, hand revealing like Gitaxian Probe bounce spells like Unsummon or Remand so you know what's in their hand . . .

Great, I think I need to build this now. If you decide to go that route and want any help just let me know!

Hi guys! So I'm a Magic Judge Level 1 since 2015 and will try to help you clarify some rules.

@Wayneh73, @Heisenbrain, @CommanderAdventures:

Etrata's second ability is a triggered ability. It triggers as soon as Etrata deals her combat damage.

At that point, the ability goes on the stack, and the active player gets the priority. All players will be able to respond one after the other. This is how the stack and the priority work.
The ability does not trigger when declaring attackers, nor when declaring blockers. It's on combat damage, which are assigned and dealt during the Combat Damage Step of the Combat Phase. At the end of this step, after dealing damage, the players will get priority before proceeding to the next and last step of the Combat Phase.

Shuffling Etrata into the library is part of the ability, so you apply this effect only when you resolve her ability on the stack.

So yes, you may respond to that ability and target Etrata with a bouncing spell or ability. (e.g. Unsummon ). When the Etrata's ability will resolve, there will be no more Etrata to shuffle back to the library.

Flickering and Blinking Etrata in response to her ability works also, as when she comes back she will be a new object not related to the previous one.

More info may be retrieved here: Etrata's extra rulings.


It's a layer question, see rule 613. Usually when two effects want to modify the same characteristic (the creature subtype), you follow the timestamp rule (if there is no dependency), which means you apply the effects in the order they arrived.

In your example, if you played Conspiracy first, then Arcane Adaptation, all your creatures will be Ninja Rogue.
In the reverse order, all your creatures are only Ninja.

Sounds like a well reasoned decision. On the other hand, a counter or bounce that draws two cards at instant speed is fine.

Draw two as an instant is Hieroglyphic Illumination . The counter is Mana Leak , the bounce is Unsummon . So the counter is above curve, the bounce on curve. Still, I understand your reasoning.

Disrupting Shoal can be very efficient, but I didn't add it to my deck for two simples reason : First, I tried to build a affordable deck and the cost of this card is almost 10 bucks. Secondly, the average CMC of the deck is pretty low, I'm afraid that Disrupting Shoal wouldn't be enough against big spell. You right for Favorable Winds, I already added it to my sideboard.

Like I said in my description, Vapor Snag can be a tiny plus to "peel" you opponent. Obviously, this 1HP damage is quite irrelevent and can be a pain if it's self-inflicted. I'll edit my description to add Unsummon for people who doesn't want this 1 extra damage.

I don't know if it's worth splashing this deck with green because there are not lot of fearies card in green. I think merfolk are more compatible. But If you want to try, you'll need to readapt the deck with these cards Groundling Pouncer, Shorecrasher Mimic or Slippery Bogle, for example.

It's been a while I didn't actualize this deck. You are perfectly right, this brand new card can be very good. I'll add Blink of an Eye to the deck and put Boomerang to the sideboard. Boomerang still be effective if your opponent plays a lands oriented deck.

Yes ! I always forget graveyard managment. In my opinion, the two cards are relevent. Tormod's Crypt is cheaper (in mana and real money) but Relic of Progenitus can be useful too. I'll add Tormod's Crypt in the sideboard and Relic of Progenitus in the mayboard because of its cost.
