When Fiend Hunter leaves the battlefield, return exiled card to the battlefield under its owner's control.

Mikaeus, the Lunarch is too slow most of the time I've found, on the turns I'd want to play him, I usually have something else to play that helps my board presence more. Fiend Hunter is definitely a solid, however, I am tight on room and there are usually better creatures I could be playing during those turns. Thank you for the suggestions though! If anything else pops up, let me know if it seems good.
Thanks a ton, mr_spooner! This deck is a really good time. Glimmerpoint Stag is definitely a good call, too, doubling as flicker effect and/or removal spell with legs! I'll give this serious thought... I do like the Fiend Hunter for it's stack trick with Cloudshift though, enabling it to remove two creatures at once. I wasn't aware of this combo until fairly recently, but it comes up surprisingly often. And Gideon's Avenger , why didn't I think of that?! You're right that it's a tough choice to swap, though. I'll give it all some very careful thought.
Huge plus +1 from me! A 'tap' deck was my very first deck so I hold it very close to me and I know a good 'tap' deck when I see one haha. Flicker + tap effect is def unique. I like how you went with a full set of Sunblast Angel , it's a real game changer for sure. I like it a lot I converted to a full set for my deck haha. Same for a full set of Sleep , makes for killer plays. Awesome job!
I'm trying to figure out, why don't you have Gideon's Avenger in your deck?? That can win you quite a good bit of games. Also, Glimmerpoint Stag might serve a better purpose in this deck than Fiend Hunter , something to consider. Looks like it'd be a tough choice finding which cards to swap for the two cards I've suggested, but def suggestions to play around with and consider.
pretty good deck in mine i run 4 Banisher Priest and 4 Fiend Hunter instead of just stopping them in their tracks like your deck. I also run 3 Jace, Architect of Thought and i got to say its great. ha! Also, i dont know if it's modern but Gideon Jura is a great control card i run him and he gets it done
Oblivion Ring and Fiend Hunter are cards that aren't part of high-placing decks. the 3 mana to handle a threat that can be brought back fairly easily is a waste. I would Path to Exile over Oblivion Ring always, if i needed more removal I would splash black for Smother and Dismember . Add more man-lands like Mutavault to give you another way to pressure the board if Emrakul, the Aeons Torn becomes nullified in some way.
your land base is also extremely slow; Halimar Depths , Khalni Garden , and Temple of Mystery . 12 lands that come in tapped basically gives your opponents an extra turn to kill you. against infect and affinity you will flat out lose because of this.
I also do not like Dispel and Sprout . the first being very situational and the latter being overall ineffective on influencing the game. adding Remand , Mana Leak , and Cryptic Command are much better options.
Not sure what you consider 'expensive,' so I'll limit my recommendations to just a few dollars.
Here are some control creatures:
Some helpful spells and enchantments:
Sol Ring Most expensive thing I will recommend, I think.
Strata Scythe Lets take advantage of all those plains shall we?
Here's my Mono White deck Isamaru, Hound of Konda if you want to browse its contents. Be warned though, it's for a more competitive atmosphere, and therefore many of the cards are pricy.
