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.
Basically - if it has it in one block of text it's like one trigger and you can't do it. If it has it in two then it's two triggers and you can.
Yeh it was done with things like Fiend Hunter and Restoration Angel . I encouraged this fantastic thing known as creative play. I mean, yeh it was a stupid combo, hard to pull off and rarely ever worked: but you were rewarded when you managed it! Wizards now are like 'lol no, shouldnt be able to do that' - even though it was damn hard to achieve in the first place. It just removes an aspect of fun and creativity.
@ Putrefy no it doesn't. Read the Gatherer rulings on Banisher Priest
Banisher Priests ability causes a zone change with a duration, a new style of ability thats somewhat reminiscent of older cards like Oblivion Ring. However, unlike Oblivion Ring, cards like Banisher Priest have a single ability that creates two one-shot effects: one that exiles the creature when the ability resolves, and another that returns the exiled card to the battlefield immediately after Banisher Priest leaves the battlefield.
If Banisher Priest leaves the battlefield before its enters-the-battlefield ability resolves, the target creature wont be exiled.

I had put Mikaeus, the Lunarch basically to make my Banisher Priest s and Fiend Hunter better against burn decks but I do like Sun Titan it makes sense with this deck. Great Suggestion! Keep em coming.
If your trying to use the neat trick of exiling their creature by blinking your Banisher Priest before its trigger resolves you'll be in trouble. That trick only works with split text like Fiend Hunter and Detention Sphere . Good deck though
Fiend Hunter would also work well with what you wana do
Maybe more card draw like Bloodgift Demon and Graveborn Muse ? Also you don't seem to have Sensei's Divining Top , which usually works great in ay deck. Terminus is also great, as you can sac your own creatures into graveyard, plus you can cast it with instant speed with the Top.
Nice deck, I also have a Vish Kal combo deck. +1
