Banisher Priest Discussion

Fun! I was playing with a similar concept - though using faster blink effects like Cloudshift to take advantage of the stack with cards like Tidehollow Sculler, Fiend Hunter or Banisher Priest, and Mangara of Corondor to exile two cards at the same time. Along the lines of

Cast Tidehollow Sculler, then, while the ETB trigger is on the stack, cast Cloudshift. So the stack looks like this:



Tidehollow Sculler ETB trigger


Because it's last in first out, Cloudshift resolves first, flickering back the Tidehollow Sculler. This means that the "Leaves the Battlefield trigger" AND a "Enters the battlefield trigger" are placed on the stack:


tidehollow sculler 2 ETB

tidehollow sculler 1 LTB

tidehollow sculler 1 ETB


The second ETB trigger resolves first, allowing you to exile a card from their hand. Then the LTB trigger resolves but has no target. Then the 1st ETB trigger resolves and exiles a card from their hand permanently.

Blinking shenanigans! +1

I believe the below cards don't have enough impact, are situational, or have better alternatives:

I understand your desire to add some anthem effects for your cat tokens but I believe that an anthem effect on its own, especially on an enchantment, is not worth it - see comments below for caged sun and gauntlet of power.

If you can afford them, or you are playing on MTGO, definitely get yourself a copy of Forcefield and Mana Crypt for some life total protection in case your stuff is removed or you have to attack for value, and a lot of mana on the cheap, respectively. Also as mentioned above, Land Tax is ridiculous.

Strip Mine is strictly better than Encroaching Wastes and has more synergy with Sun Titan (who should also be in your deck).

Caged Sun and Gauntlet of Power are some of the few anthem effects I would play, because they also double your mana, which effectively Negates the cost of equipping your stuff. They also add to metalcraft unlike more traditional anthem effects. If I had to play an enchantment anthem, I would play Marshal's Anthem. It is slightly more expensive, but you can usually afford to kick it once, bringing back a fallen comrade (with +1/+1).

Intrepid Hero can probably be removed for something with immediate impact like Fiend Hunter or Banisher Priest, they are also slightly more versatile in that they exile creatures of any size. Fiend Hunter is best with a sacrifice outlet and creature recursion like Reveillark and Karmic Guide. On that note, Reveillark and Karmic Guide are some of the best white creatures of all time, run them.

That's enough for now, soz for essay, was really bored at work.

I would suggest removing some of the fillers (i.e. Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger, even though it is just a sexy card) for cards that could ad a bit of diversity to the deck. It could help it flow a little easier with other decks you may be playing against. Here are a few topics I would consider working on:
- Win cons: Myr Battlesphere, Avenger of Zendikar (tokens for dayyyyyyys)
- ETB Copy Cats: Clever Impersonator, Mercurial Pretender, Phyrexian Metamorph, Body Double, Progenitor Mimic (this guy is insane), and, of course, Clone.
- Removal: Venser, Shaper Savant, Banisher Priest, Fiend Hunter, Terastodon, Riftwing Cloudskate
- Infinite Mana with Deadeye Navigator: Peregrine Drake, Great Whale, Palinchron
- Draw power: Prime Speaker Zegana, Mulldrifter, Coiling Oracle, Vendilion Clique
- Ramp: Wood Elves, Satyr Wayfinder, Solemn Simulacrum
- Control: Mystic Snake, Voidmage Husher
- Utility: Derevi, Empyrial Tactician (yes its unbanned!), Chancellor of the Spires, Diluvian Primordial

@vincilios I know about this interaction and do not think it important enough to play 4 Fiend Hunters, because I like the stats on Banisher Priest more.

@Xenkay Actually, if you play Fiend Hunter and Oblivion Ring the right way, it can enable you to permanent exile something with the help of a bounce effect like Restoration Angel, Flickerwisp and Eldrazi Displacer. The source is that the exile effect of Fiend Hunter is split into two parts. By stacking it the right way, you can use the exile trigger first and bounce him back, before the second trigger, that gets the exiled thing bck onto the battlefield, triggers. Just google Flickerwisp + Oblivion Ring interaction.

Drown in Sorrow can hurt slivers early game. Lightmine Field can slow him down if he's playing all the low drops

Also Banisher Priest to spot remove some of his baddies.

Oblivion Ring would work the same way with Felidar Cub or Keening Apparition, but you have to destroy it before the exile trigger resolves, or else you will just put their creature back on the battlefield. This won't work with Banishing Light because it has only one trigger. Wizards doesn't seem to like this type of interaction, so newer cards like Banisher Priest don't have the two triggers.
