Copper vs MLS vs ?

Hey guys, I'm new here, and I wanted to get some information head gaskets.

Really just polling, as I've been reading a bit on the different options, so MLS and copper are the main players? but what other options are there?

I'm curious for a future project!!

Steel/composite head gaskets are good for a stock rebuild, less tahn 12.5 to 1, MLS are for higher compression and require both the head and the decks to have a very fine finish, Copper are for even higher compression and for oringed blocks/marine applications. If you use copper always coat them with either schlac(sp) or copper coat to seal the cooling passages.
