He_Who_Hungers on Ghost from the Shell

You could consider adding Fiend Hunter (or Oblivion Ring if you can reliably blink enchantments). Blinking them in response to the trigger on their etb ability will remove them from the game before they have anything exiled, so the exiled card will remain exiled after its first ability resolves. Note that this doesn't work with later released cards which say "Exile target [...] until this permanent leaves the battlefield".

Myr Welder's abilities are linked, you would not be able to use abilities for any cards exiled by an ability other than the one printed on it. Rona, Disciple of Gix has both a triggered and activated ability linked to a static ability, it's uncommon but not unheard of for multiple abilities to be linked like this, Karn Liberated is another example. Do-It-Yourself Seraph gains text boxes, any linked abilities within a particular text box (including it's own linked abilities) are linked only to the ones from the same text box.

For the extra question, no, you would not be able to. Fiend Hunter is becoming a creature that allows the casting of cards exiled due to abilities that have not yet exiled any cards.

A non-Un alternative to the last question: If I controlled both a Deceiver of Form and a Fiend Hunter (and had a... Fugitive Wizard exiled under it), then Deceiver of Form causes Fiend Hunter to become a copy of Rona, Disciple of Gix or Nightveil Specter, would I then be able to cast the Fugitive Wizard?

To put it more plainly, part of putting something on the stack is selecting targets if you have to. Whenever you cast an aura, you first put it on the stack before it resolves, so you have to select targets.

If the aura is not on the stack, but passes from another zone directly on the battlefield, say with Retether, it does not require targets.

To compare to Fiend Hunter, its ETB ability is what actually exiles the creature, which goes definitely on the stack and requires targets, regardless of how the creature entered the battlefield.

Still trying to grasp the aura "put into play" vs cast being able to enchant a hexproof/shrouded permanent but I accept it. So, in the same vein is the same true for creatures. For example, if Fiend Hunter was put into play somehow perhaps Animate Dead would it be able to exile a creature that had shroud?

Argy, in the moment it should be fine for 2.0. The second half of the coco data was made in the past 2 weeks. But since you use 1.0 this data doesn't have any relevance ... I'd do V1.0 testing but it goes down a lot so I can't get a lot of data.

yeaGO: are we thinking of the same bug yeago? Where sets of cards will cycle in and out of appearing in your deck? Example: getting Fiend Hunter in about 10 games in a row, and then not getting it in the next 10 games, and then have it reappear etc.

I've been exclusively using 2.0 playtester on chrome now and I haven't noticed that quirk, but it used to be common place in 1.0 and I feel like I experienced it on chrome the most? It's been a while. Could have also been firefox. However, that was back before I learned to gather data on my playtests so I don't know if it was a thing or if it was me just looking into something that didn't actually exist.

SeekerofSecrets V2.0 has the box of colourful buttons to the right, V1.0 has no colourful buttons.

Awesome! Like the whole Fiend Hunter loop hole... so, what if both Body Snatcher and Phantasmal Image ETB at the same time... can Body Snatcher be sacrificed to recur Body Double for Phantasmal Image to mimic Body Double... or does Phantasmal Image ETB as Body Snatcher? Thanks for the timely response by the way!

Nim Deathmantle just needs too much mana if Ashnod's Altar isn't out and can't get anything that already is in the graveyard. It's anti-synergistic with cards like Fiend Hunter, Fleshbag Marauder and Merciless Executioner, wich are the best removal in the deck at low cmc. Additionally i wanted to build a deck without infinite combos.
