Bounty Hunter Discussion

Kogarashi on What can card:Bounty Hunter destroy?

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).

MESS1802 on What can card:Bounty Hunter destroy?

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. :)

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.
