Fiend Hunter over Banisher Priest, Harder to kill, Pyroclasm can't kill it, blocks Geist of Saint Traft and requires more mana/ life from things like Black Sun's Zenith and Toxic Deluge. While mainting same mana cost and human subtype

There are combos between cards such as Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker and Restoration Angel but I can't think of anything that goes off with Fiend Hunter for infinite.

Isn't there an infinite combo with Fiend Hunter ? I forget what it is.

TheMagi on Brago and infinite bounce, how ...

5 days ago

So I've been messing with My Brago, King Eternal deck and gotten a good suggestion in the form of Strionic Resonator. Now Brago, the resonator and Sol Ring can go infinite bounce, however I know that with the way the stack works, temporary exile can turn into very permanent exile when the "return to hand" ability has nothing to target.

So three questions

1) Can I begin the process of almost infinite creature exile with this combo(bouncing Angel of Serenity many times with the copied brago ability)?

2) If so, can someone explain how it would work with the stack to create that situation? This way I can at least explain the BS i'm trying to pull

3) If yes to the first question, would this also work for Fiend Hunter, Oblivion Ring, and Detention Sphere?

PS: Gatherer gives me this: "If Angel of Serenity leaves the battlefield before its enters-the-battlefield ability has resolved, its leaves-the-battlefield ability will trigger and do nothing. Then the enters-the-battlefield ability will resolve and exile the targeted creatures and/or creature cards indefinitely."

But i'm not sure how this works on the stack, or how to work it if I need to order the triggers on the stack.

also what about Fiend Hunter for more exile/return ability.. maybe replace Cloudshift since it completely wipes all counters on creatures..? although maybe its more worth the lower mana cost

I've decided to cut down on tutors and countermagic, but your other suggestions I've wanted to try out for some time. I really like the Sower as a good 75% card, it scales well to the power level of the table, but Fiend Hunter might not be good enough. How about these changes:

Conjurer's Closet -> Progenitor Mimic. Quite similar effect, but more shenanigan-potential. Fixes my curve a bit too.
Fiend Hunter -> Diluvian Primordial. I might find some good removal in the graveyard, and the Primordial is a good 75% spell as well.

From your sideboard, I'd DEFINITELY vouch for Diluvian Primordial, Progenitor Mimic, Green Sun's Zenith, and Swan Song.

From the deck, most of it looks really solid, but I would probably take out Fiend Hunter & Sower of Temptation (a temporary answer is no answer at all), Thassa, God of the Sea (scry and unblockability both seem a bit outside the synergy/main goal), and Mystic Remora (as nice as it is, having to pay mana just to keep your board state rather than further it or control an opponent's is extremely bleh).

Also, out of curiosity, please peruse my Roon deck, and let me know if you see any cards that interest you highly. It's been a while since I've updated it (Sylvan Primordial? Oops...), but there might be a gem or two: MagicalHacker - Roon of the Hidden Realm.

Replace Banisher Priest with Fiend Hunter. With a sac outlet, you can sac the hunter in response to its own ability to exile the target permanently.
