Bounty Hunter Discussion

Oh, with Mathas, you "automatically" need Bounty Hunter . Consider also Kulrath Knight and Tetzimoc, Primal Death .

King_Kaliban No problem! Another suggestion I just thought of while looking through your list again since you want to keep your creature count low. It looks like you want some artifact recursion since you are playing Daring Archaeologist and Trusty Packbeast . Instead of running both I think you may be better off running Trading Post as an ultimate utility card since it can do it all and it will open open up another card slot. With the open card slot you could then try Coalhauler Swine since I think that fits the theme of your deck really well. And I would personally take out Bounty Hunter for Vandalblast or Disenchant (or some other artifact/enchantment removal that has you gain life or deal damage). Another card that just came to mind to is red's best way of dealing with artifacts: Aura Barbs . It's unfortunate you can't gain life off of that with F&S but you'd sling some damage.

Obviously, all of that is my personal opinion, and I still think your deck is awesome regardless! Let me know what you think!

This deck is so political it's hard for me to find a scale to evaluate this deck by, but it definitely looks fun to both play and face. I've never been in a game where there is a lot of voting going on ^^ I feel like your land counter is maybe a bit too low, alternatively I would advocate more mana-fixing rocks. Maybe some of the less impressive political-style cards such as Browbeat and Vexing Devil could be cut?

Bonus points for the Bounty Hunter , that interaction is super random and hilarious.

The bounty counters placed by Mathas, Fiend Seeker are identical to those placed by Bounty Hunter , in the same way that +1/+1 counters placed by two different sources are the same as each other. If Mathas, Fiend Seeker places a bounty counter on a creature, Bounty Hunter can destroy that creature (assuming it isn't indestructible or otherwise has some form of protection).

I want to know if Bounty Hunter would have ANY use in an EDH deck commanded by Mathas, Fiend Seeker . Because I know the rulings for Mathas say only specifically his bounty counters give creatures the triggered ability. But can Bounty Hunter at least destroy creatures that are given bounty counters from Mathas, or are his bounty counters unique like those given by Mathas, Fiend Seeker ?

The_Fallen_Duke, thanks for the advice! Curses are the primary focus, although the deck is less about politics and more about bleeding out opponents while preventing them from hurting me. Effects like Ghostly Prison neutralize go-wide and token strategies, while the more Stax-y sacrifice effects take out large, individual creatures.

Assemble the Legion gets much, much stronger as the game goes on, and this deck very much wants to drag the game out. Mogis, God of Slaughter fills the role of a big, dumb creature that drains my opponents' life and denies them creatures. Bounty Hunter actually combos with Hunter of Eyeblights , Kulrath Knight , and Mathas, Fiend Seeker himself, who uses the same kind of counter. There's also some other cards that fit into this sub-theme, like Orzhov Advokist and Curse of Stalked Prey . Since the deck is focused on draining life from my opponents, any form of repeatable lifegain puts me at a disadvantage. Tainted Remedy pretty conclusively deals with that.

Of course, even if those are my reasons for putting these cards in, there's no guarantee that doing so actually works in the long run. I'll definitely look at cutting out some of the less useful removal.

The focus on curses seems like a fun concept, I guess you enjoy table politcs to make the best out of the deck.

Regarding the cuts, I think the first thing you need to consider is what you want this deck to be: should it revolve around curses and auras or would you like it to be a Stax deck?

Also, there are a couple of cards that, although good in a vacuum, do not seem to add much to either strategies: first I noticed are Assemble the Legion , Mogis, God of Slaughter , Bounty Hunter , Tainted Remedy (maybe I missed their role in your strategy).

I can see a lot of removal and tax spells: most of those are good cards, but I think you should pick only some among those with pretty much the same effect (maybe choose those with the lowest CMC and/or most versatility).

In terms of lands, in the final version of the deck I'd say that 38-39 could be enough looking at your mana curve.

(I'm far from being a pro deck-builder or player myself, so pick everything I wrote with a grain of salt)

Bounty Hunter works perfectly with Mathas. Mathas doesn't care if he placed the counters on the creature, he just cares that its a bounty counter and that he himself is alive so that those creature trigger the Draw-effect on death. :)
