When Fiend Hunter enters the battlefield, you may exile another target creature.
When Fiend Hunter leaves the battlefield, return exiled card to the battlefield under its owner's control.

Makes sense, as long as you have a way to bounce them or sacrifice before the second ability on Fiend Hunter activates.
Oh good point freezerboy. However Fiend Hunter wins by not having to tap, which is stalled by summoning sickness. So I can abuse Fiend Hunter sooner and sometimes, multiple times, whereas I can't guarantee Mangara of Corondor will even get abused once.
I am looking for some creatures that have ETB or evoke abilities that deal damage to or otherwise remove opposing creatures in Naya colors, similar to the effects of cards like Flametongue Kavu , Fiend Hunter or Shriekmaw . For reference, here is my decklist:
Solemn Simulacrum , Mulldrifter , Karmic Guide , Reveillark , Venser, Shaper Savant , Flickerform , Fiend Hunter , Enlightened Tutor , Congregation at Dawn , Eladamri's Call , Chord of Calling , Seedborn Muse , Elvish Piper , Quicksilver Amulet , Deadwood Treefolk , Reclamation Sage , Bane of Progress , Mimic Vat , Brutalizer Exarch , Mistmeadow Witch , Nephalia Smuggler , Otherworldly Journey , Turn to Mist , Liberate , Leyline of Anticipation , Vedalken Orrery , Avenger of Zendikar , Glen Elendra Archmage , etc.
Basically, look at any spell in creature form, and decide on what you want. You wanna turn your creatures into spells by either flashing them or cheating them into play. There are TONS of good creatures with awesome ETB abilities. It's entirely up to you to put which ones together to take control and beat your opponent(s) to death.
And by the way - Sylvan Primordial is banned.
Yeah Banisher Priest is a "fixed" Fiend Hunter . Just like Banishing Light is a "fixed" Oblivion Ring . They consolidated the abilities so that they weren't abusable (boo) and made it so that they could only hit things your opponents control (double boo).
Your own answer is partially correct in respect that neither Fiend Hunter
nor Banisher Priest
have left the battlefield, so nothing will come back, when Infinite Reflection
enters the battlefield. But, there is more to this than just that, and that is what happens if either Fiend Hunter
or Banisher Priest
leaves the battlefield while Infinite Reflection
is still there. Both Fiend Hunter
and Banisher Priest
will act differently in this scenario.
1. Fiend Hunter : Because what this card does is separated into two individual abilities which are linked to each other, the second (returning) ability must be present on the card when it leaves the battlefield in order to work. So if Fiend Hunter leaves the battlefield while being a copy of something else, the creature that was previously exiled with it will be lost in exile forever.
2. Banisher Priest : In this case, we have a single ability with a fixed duration set by "until Banisher Priest leaves the battlefield". Whenever a cards refers to itself by name, it only means "this object" so it's irrelevant whether its name changes to something else. The duration of the effect is set upon the resolution of the ETB ability and the game keeps track of that. So if Banisher Priest leaves the battlefield while being a copy of something else, the creature that was previously exiled with it will come back.
Different answers for each one actually. Fiend Hunter has a second ability that triggers when he leaves the battlefield, so him leaving wouldn't trigger if he were a copy of something else and the exiled card would be permanently lost. Banisher Priest has a single ability with a stated duration, so when she leaves no matter if she is a copy of something else or not the exiled card comes back.
If Fiend Hunter dies while it no longer has its own abilities, then the card it exiled will remain exiled because there's nothing to bring it back. Fiend Hunter relies on a second, written triggered ability to return the exiled card.
Banisher Priest is different. It has a single triggered ability that establishes a duration. The exile lasts until Banisher Priest leaves the battlefield. Remember that when a card uses its own name in its text without also saying "a card named," then the mention is self-referential and basically means "this object right here." So whenever Banisher Priest (the object, which may not necessarily be a Banisher Priest at the time) leaves the battlefield, the exile effect will end immediately.
