Banisher Priest Discussion

Banisher Priest is great but, as any creature, is easy to remove. Enchantments might work better.

Seems like Banisher Priest might work for you. It is good removal and fits the Cleric theme. +1 from me!

jimmynitos Thanks for the advice! I see what you mean about Monastery Mentor. What do you think about Banisher Priest for removal and a body? I really like the idea of using Expedition Map too! Did not know about that.

I put in all the fetches just to try and thin out the deck but I agree that maybe four is a lot.

I think I will keep Intrepid Hero just because I can use it over and over again if they have more than one large creature.

Thanks for the great advice it really helps!

humblewarrior Oblivion Ring is better than Banisher Priest. Less color intensive, more targets, harder to remove.

I have always liked Banisher Priest.

You seem to have it out for enchantment removal, which is good if that's your local meta and not good otherwise. There are eight total effects that destroy enchantments, which you can easily cut in half to add some more in-game value for your wallet value list.

Avalanche Riders breaks certain archetypes in half, and keeps the pace even against ramp and control. Plus they sacrifice themselves so you'll never need to find an outlet. They are also inexpensive. TCG's mid price is $1.14 for one.

Loving Faceless Butcher because that thing never gets used and was the OG Fiend Hunter, but why no Fiend Hunter or Banisher Priest to clear the way for swings? At $.20 and $.25, respectively, surely they make the budget cut line.

Upvotes all the way.

---- That, so make sure to use Fiend Hunter or Angel of Serenity and not Banisher Priest.

Beginning to think that Banisher Priest and Fiend Hunter could be interesting at times. CMC is in line with free casts from Aluren giving me more creatures in that range to combo with should I be so lucky to have Cloudstone Curio out too

Not sold on Armada Wurm and Trostani's Summoner still, thinking on good replacements. Kederekt Leviathan looks interesting

Need to see if there's anything better than Ondu Giant in terms of same effect, lower CMC. the 2/4 body isn't overwhelming for the mana cost and something 3 or less (like another Wood Elves equivalent) would be amazing

Garruk, Primal Hunter might be a bit out of place since the use of his -3 ability is almost assured on the drop. Wondering if there's a better draw spell I can drop in here with same / similar / better effects

Rite of Replication is awesome for end game, but to do good things it really takes the full 9 mana and can't cheat that cost via Omniscience. Maybe a card to toy around with swapping

In at least one of the games I played, I still felt short a bit of draw. The new spells Ponder, Preordain, Brainstorm were nice early game but I wanted more cards when I was empty handed and needed more things to play. Deep Analysis may find a home back in the deck or I may look at some other options like Stroke of Genius

Some things I'd buy for the deck if budget wasn't a concern (notes for future upgrades or if someone other than me actually looks at this stuff):
