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. :)

Very nice political deck!

I use Mathas as an optional commander in my Queen Marchesa deck:

[PreCon] Game of Thrones - Monarch

Commander / EDH CommanderAdventures


Love the fact that you run extremly niche cards like Locust Miser & Gnat Miser. Never seen them played in EDH before :) +1

Cards that also fit into your deck's theme are: Xantcha, Sleeper Agent, the Curse Cycle esp. Curse of Opulence and you should def. run Bounty Hunter!

While Chromatic Lantern doesn't fit perfectly on your curve with your cmdr having a CMC of 3, I'd still run it for fixing colors. It's only like 70 cents now and def. worth buying.

Disrupt Decorum should be a true gem here, too! It can easily give you a huge advantage after spreading bounty counters.

Yeah if you ever build any other commander decks which use special counters it is always worth checking if other cards use them. For example Mathas, Fiend Seeker and Bounty Hunter

Also some suggestions. Unquestioned Authority is better than Angelic Gift.

Return to Dust and Crush Contraband are worth testing out.

You should cut Chastise and add Swords to Plowshares as it's super cheap and a lot better. Path to Exile is also a pretty great option.

Knight of Grace and Malice, Blinding Angel and AErathi Berserker are just balls of stats that are really not strong enough for EDH.

Liliana's Shade and Celestial Crusader aren't very good in three color decks.

And Agent of Masks and Bounty Hunter are too slow.

Then again if you are running any of these because their pet cards or you like the art or enjoy peoples reaction to them then, by all means, run them. But assuming you're looking for power level i'd cut these.

It cards you don't have that you should consider running. Bounty Hunter especially has good synergy with your commander. Queen Marchesa is another commander that people like to run with the pillowfort theme and those colors.

Also is a great source for help with building edh decks, definitely check it out!

I've been thinking about making a deck with this guy. It's that I already have a deck in these colours, otherwise I probably would have gone for it. He's cool.

You could try adding some things which put it clearly out there that if things are attacking you, they are dying.. Thinking Dread or Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts. Or just something like High Priest of Penance. Brutal Hordechief is also a very good offensive tool, but really good politically as well, considering you can force your opponents into a bad block, so persuading other opponents to attack them should be easier.

Also, note that Bounty Hunter does not help Mathas get the counters out there. Since the effect Mathas' bounty counters have are tied to his specific ability, the creatures only gain that effect if Mathas gives them the counter. If the counter should be removed, it can be re-added by a Bounty Hunter to trigger the effect, but putting a Bounty counter on a creature with Bounty Hunter while having Mathas on the field will not give you the draw effect.Of course, you can still use him to kill the creatures tagged by Mathas. If that's your intention, never mind my comments.

Alright, cool, thanks! I've added some of your recommendations (I can't believe I forgot about Sheoldred, smh).

As for Hunter of Eyeblights, the reason is that it can target creatures with bounty-counters on them (similarly to Bounty Hunter and/or Kulrath Knight). It might be cut, because it's a bit cheeky, but I'm interested in seeing how it plays.

Amazing deck you have right there, I love politics in commander, thats why I built Queen Marchesa! By the way, how does Bounty Hunter works with Mathas, Fiend Seeker's bounty counters? Does it work the way I think it does?
