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.
What really makes Maverick work in legacy is Green Sun's Zenith . Being able to tutor up the perfect hate card is why the deck is so powerful, I would play four Chord of Calling , and maybe even Birthing Pod . Mangara of Corondor is also a great card that answers almost everything you could want to, and Fiend Hunter could take down a creature while staying on the board.
I really like the interaction between Dauntless Escort , Sun Titan and Novablast Wurm - that's great. I suppose the combo would effectively also work with Saffi Eriksdotter or Fiend Hunter (exiling Sun Titan ).
Have you seen my take on graveyard interaction? I've been working on a Teneb graveyard deck here:
Note that this interaction works on any card that has linked ETB/LTB triggered abilities (for example, Oblivion Ring and Fiend Hunter ). However, cards like Banisher Priest do not produce the same effect because they don't use separate, linked abilities.
Oh god yeah I would never suggest to have someone read the rulebook as a beginner. But as someone who is advanced it is a good way to see what needs explaining and what can be skipped for later when they understand the basics and want to know why Fiend Hunter is different and strictly better than Banisher Priest . Most people who are passionate about something but not used to teaching people will go into entire too much detail so using a basic reference will help stick to basics.
