Bounty Agent Discussion
4 weeks ago
Lets start with your CMC. In order for an aggro deck to be fast, the mana curve for the deck needs to be incredibly low to the ground. With that in mind here are some creatures that are all sub-three CMC:
- Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit
- Boros Reckoner
- Thalia, Heretic Cathar
- Thalia, Guardian of Thraben
- Tithe Taker
- Mentor of the Meek
- Ballyrush Banneret
- Haazda Marshal
- Aerial Responder
- Frontline Medic
- Consul's Lieutenant
- Bounty Agent
- Mirror Entity
- Kytheon, Hero of Akros Flip
- Thalia's Lieutenant
- Akroan Hoplite
- Champion of the Parish
- Legion Loyalist
- Metallic Mimic
- Recruiter of the Guard
- Swiftblade Vindicator
- Legion Warboss
You are also gonna need to give your creatures haste, and one of my favorite cards does just that for next to nothing; Mass Hysteria .
Here are a few cards I also think would be really good support, or are staples in this archetype:
- Unbreakable Formation
- Brave the Elements
- Teferi's Protection
- Collective Effort
- Citywide Bust
- Militia's Pride
- Brave the Sands
- Glorious Anthem
- Chance for Glory
- Spear of Heliod
Lastly... I know you said you avoided it intentionally but... I think it was a mistake... You need more ramp. The more ramp you have the faster you can play dudes the faster you can kill someone. So Mana Crypt , Sol Ring , Boros Signet , Chrome Mox , etc. I think you should play at least 5 ramp artifacts to really help you get that overwhelming force, because on T4 you now have to live in fear of WoGs
Ok that's all... he said after posting a page long comment... Sorry. <3 If you need help with cuts anything above 4 cmc should be the first things to go with the exception of Cathar's. get your CMC as close to 2 as you can.

Thanks for your comment. Sorry for such a late reply, I was just on a plane and had to go to school the next day, so this is the only chance I've had to write to you. I see your point on a lot of four drops and I agree that I might benefit from having less four drops. I like Storrev, Devkarin Lich because he can return Planeswalkers as well as creatures and they return to the graveyard once they die, allowing me to use them again. I like the idea of Despark , but I really like the lifegain on Vraska's Contempt and the ability to kill any creature or Planeswalker against aggro. So that'll probably be staying in. But I will consider Despark in my sideboard. I really like Dryad Greenseeker , but the thing is that it only puts the land in my hand, and not on the battlefield is really important. I really like Arguel's Blood Fast Flip and I have nothing against it, it's a really good card. I might make out a Vivien and Ripjaw for 2 Blood Fast, I'll have to think about it. I see your point on Bounty Agent , but we'll see weather or not the meta has enough reasons for it to have a spot or two in my sideboard.

Trainyaj, it's around 50% to have one creature but more like 80% to have one or more (assuming 24 creatures).
Hexaflexagon, that's a lot of 4 drops. Storrev, Devkarin Lich could be a Isareth the Awakener and Despark might work in place of Vraska's Contempt . Not saying they are better just your curve might thank you. Dryad Greenseeker or Arguel's Blood Fast Flip could be a nice fit for this deck as early plays that both let you hit land drops and accrue CA. Call me crazy but Bounty Agent might even be a relevant card this season with lyra, niv, search, baby bolas, landing, feather and zombie gods.

Hi iatetoomxch i really like your list. I play a similar list. So i will give you some recommendions. Because of your direct impact preference:
- Aura of Silence - hate and destroy one ^^
- Wood Elves - really good with the recursion possibilitys
- Plaguecrafter - best. Only creature Answer for planeswalker
- Ravenous Chupacabra - destroy target creature (an opponent controls)
- Ramunap Excavator - i play this card with - Azusa, Lost but Seeking and Oracle of Mul Daya and Yavimaya Elder to ramp lands or Wasteland or Horizon Canopy
- Grand Abolisher - make your turn save
- Grasp of Fate - sometimes you want more than one thing away
- Massacre Wurm - shave live
- Bane of Progress - destroy all enchantment and artifact
good but not direct impact:
- Underrealm Lich i like him... sure to mana expensive for your meta
- Bounty Agent - idk new try to kill commander i think
- Kambal, Consul of Allocation - soft lock for life
- Mesmeric Orb really good fill for the graveyard and annoys the other ^^
- Caustic Caterpillar
- Bloom Tender
- Helm of Obedience - against my deck all who can play Rest in Peace so this is the answer...

hkhssweiss: Huh, I've always found Mask of Memory to be one of the strongest card advantage engines in the deck in testing. Gilded Lotus is a bit slow, I'll acknowledge, but remember that it's essentially 2 mana overall (it comes in untapped and immediately can be tapped to recover a certain amount of the mana investment). And Fight to the Death probably is one of the weaker links here, but I really love the idea of flashing in Archangel Avacyn Flip followed by Fight to the Death as a surprise (or using it to screw over the Voltron player when they're chump-blocked). And honestly, I'd rather run Grand Abolisher than Tithe Taker here, we'll see :)
RecklessN7: Bounty Agent was one of my most recent cuts actually! I wanted to run it as commander-hate and as a way to flip Avacyn, but it kinda got overshadowed by other things. And as I was cutting most of my self-sacrificing creatures, I ended up cutting Gift of Immortality (it no longer works with most of my options). I really like the idea of this version of the deck so far though!!
Darkshadow327: Your advice has been implemented!

Hey Daedalus19876 I gotta say I’m Enjoying this new approach you’re taking with this. I hadn’t considered a hatebears strategy but I think it has mad potential. Already have a lot of what you’re running too so maybe I’ll try it out and see what my meta does to handle it. They have been hating me out hard lately since they don’t like how aggressive she can be.
Have you considered Bounty Agent ? Probably very meta dependent but most of my playgroup like to run decks that center around their commanders so he hasn’t proven to be highly disruptive. Even more fun with Gift of Immortality if you decide to keep it

Great! I'm glad I'm not far from the mark.
So, some somewhat relevant cards that are just suggestions with reasoning. I'd like your thoughts on.
Bounty Agent vigilant (ref. Stasis lock); also it shoots a deck's general.
Incubation Druid a bad version of bloom tender? Goes extremely well with the synergy of the deck already.
Lavinia, Azorius Renegade - on your turns 1-5 she's great. Probably a high priority tutor target early game, likely somewhat dead late game.
Damping Sphere a great anti-storm piece, comes down just as early as they win, so a solid option
Prime Speaker Vannifar an obligatory mention. Some people like bad birthing pod. At the end of the day - it's exactly that. So with this knowledge what you will
Smothering Tithe - a 2 card hard lock with stasis that is just dumb.
Wilderness Reclamation - same as smothering tithe. I feel like it's less good - but is probably better.
Vizier of the Menagerie - bad style of draw & mana fixing.
Tithe Taker - a bad grand abolisher... but another copy, I guess.
Chakram Retriever is the goodest boi, especially for abusing bloom tender
Conclave Tribunal is a 0 mana o-ring. Neat.
Dawn of Hope - a nice win-more card. Cute.
Deputy of Detention - a spicy creature version of det-sphere. Meh.
Guardian Project more 4 mana draw engines. Ok...
Spellseeker is a nifty wizard. Fetches your real tutors / mana drain in a pinch.
That's the best summary I could give for the recent set's new cedh options & possibilities for this build.

Thanks for the very good suggestions. Especially the Bounty Agent might find a slot.
It is flagged for needing help since I just wrote it off my mind and I thought I might have missed something.
