Fiend Hunter Discussion

Demarge on Control decks are child’s play

hmm a list with the rarely remembered 3x copies combo of Fiend Hunter and/or Restoration Angel, (fiend hunter holds down either another hunter or an angel, then an angel or hunter hits that hunter for the loop), you could put any soul sister or other etb matters abilities to abuse it. (or Seraph Sanctuary)

if you run some colorless utility lands, (Field of Ruin and Ghost Quarter are popular to fight tron, which looks to be a really tough matchup for this deck) Moorland Haunt is probably the most budget I can think of, you can run Eldrazi Displacer over the navigator which is massively cheaper on a mana base (I also suggest cutting the leviathans for the same reason, in any modern game vs any quarter decent deck the leviathan is never getting cast without you already having won the game) and is a lot less restrictive in which target you can flicker with it (you can even use it defensively).

Oh Guildmages' Forum could be perfect for a colorless land with colored mana option with a utility (that is budget). Also Irrigated Farmland is dirt cheap dual land option as well that can even interact with sun titan I would suggest using those over the tapped dual lands (still weird cove is common and river was uncommon in that commander set...) you add dimes to the budget for more effective lands.

hmm now that I look at it you could probably cut blue all together Militia Bugler and Blade Splicer are both fairly good creatures and you could just increase the count of the various white creatures, Thraben Inspector is also a rather good 1 drop. I think Kitchen Finks got a massive price drop (UMA reprint), Gideon's Lawkeeper is also very similar functioning to a bounce creature, Mangara of Corondor is also rather good with flicker effects.

I should stop now... mostly skimming around death and taxes atm anyway now that I think about it.

@ SynergyBuild Is it really worth running Fragmentize? Most of us in my meta don't even attempt to play out our combo pieces until we are for sure have protection back up or is going to go off that turn, hence why I value Instant speed reaction over sorcery based one currently. Currently I would add in Assassin's Trophy in lieu of Fiend Hunter if I don't get enough utility spells, now if Fragmentize is instant speed it would definitely be auto include.

@ caantpayrent Hey buddy thanks for checking out again, definitely good idea to add in a mulligan section as although it isn't complex aggressive mulligans happen quite a lot when Teneb isn't happy with you. I'll add that in!

Anything else you think I should add in the primer?

Demarge on Budget Hummus

2 weeks ago

Avacyn's Pilgrim and any of the other 2/1 for 1 humans that have been printed over the years, for modern you're starting off quite a bit late on average, having a lot more 1 drops will greatly improve the deck.

I would also suggest improving upon your land base so you can easily run a turn 2 green creature into a Benalish Marshal. nearly any land that can make this possible would work in your favor.

You may also want some form of removal for the deck, ideally you'd want Path to Exile, but there's many similar spells that will work somewhat as well (though not nearly as well) like Declaration in Stone or Fiend Hunter.

Militia Bugler could also work as a decent card advantage creature for the deck.

I haven't truly tested it against an HE-MAN type deck yet. There is only two people who runs Humility (me being one of them) in our meta. The deck that I face against with Humility is an Esper Control AotSS build.

Yes you are right about Nature's Claim and Krosan Grip being my main source of enchantment hate for Humility. I used to run Assassin's Trophy but sometimes helping out other decks with a land drop sucks, but if I'm facing against more Humility type decks I swap out Fiend Hunter for Ass Trophy. Fiend Hunter is also my flex spot for Seeds of Innocence in a more artifact heavy decks.

I have a question as well, is there any other forms of removal non-creature base in Abzan that is less than 2-3 CMC?

I'm picking up that this might be a budget list -- however, just because it's budget doesn't mean it's bad! I quite like the interactions here -- a lot of value here!

To improve, I'd put in some removal (Fiend Hunter has a neat interaction if you flicker him at instant speed with his first ability on the stack), and then double down on what's working for you. I'd consider cutting the Slimes and Walls, because they don't really lean into your gameplan as much as additional Blade Splicers would. (Why kill their noncreatures for 5cmc when you could kill their life total for 3?) Additionally, it might be interesting to put in a Martyr of Sands/Serra Ascendant subtheme (but this is just my brewer's brain on overdrive!). As for what to cut, I'd start with most things above 3cmc, with the exception of Thragtusk/Resto/Stonehorn. I'd also cut the Exarchs, since they seem like they're your last choice for flickering.

Hope this helps! mention me if I can be of service. Best of luck!

i do run Fiend Hunter in my orzhov cleric edh list on here its a lot easier to get off cuz you just sac in response, thanks for the suggestions though! in this deck im more focused on individual card value without being reliant on brago or resonator, those 2 just speed up the game plan in this deck but aren't needed to win games per say

There's something you would probably be delighted to learn about the Strionic Resonator combo. Cards like Angel of Serenity and Oblivion Ring have great synergy because they have an ETB effect and a LTB effect. It's important to note that the enter and leave the battlefield effects are separate. Let's say you're comboing off with strionic resonator. Your O-Ring enters play and activates. Then you activate your strionic resonator to flicker everything again on the stack. Then O-Ring's leave the battlefield effect triggers, resolves, but nothing is returned because nothing has been exiled. Then the ETB effect exiles its target PERMANENTLY. It no longer has any way to return because that effect already triggered. Strionic Resonator turns every card with ETB and LTB exile and return effects into permanent exile effects. This doesn't work with cards like Banishing Light, just cards like Fiend Hunter.

Hello, TheErebos. Someone suggested to you about a certain thing; but I'm unsure if you'd agree w/ my cause...

Soldier of Fortune, Boros' Final Stand

Commander / EDH* BMHKain


Yep. cEDH Boros. I was using Gisela, Blade of Goldnight, switched to Aurelia, the Warleader, & now Partners Akiri, Line-Slinger & Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder. My deck is based on three archetupes: Value Town, Stax, & Prison (Though that might just be another part of Stax.). I wonder if you are interested in this kind of thing; I believe Boros can win w/o going Aggro at all. I intend to try & bring these (& potentially Aurelia 1) to Tier 3. While there are things lack in some ways, I believe they can improve on such ideas in their own way...

Also, I wonder how one can Break Parity, & what Parity even is. I just wonder if these are the right CMDRs for this... (Both are on at least Tier 4.) What options would you recommend for this; given I have stuff that Combos out (Eldrazi Displacer, Fiend Hunter + Sun Titan, Potentially many others.), & stuff that locks down opponents Glowrider, Vryn Wingmare, Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, Thorn of Amethyst, Sphere of Resistance, Winter Orb, Static Orb, Icy Manipulator, Grafdigger's Cage, Ashes of the Abhorrent, Stranglehold, Kismet, among many others all apply here. What do you think might be a better combo for Rule of Law/Eidolon of Rhetoric than Possibility Storm + Knowledge Pool? What do you think is best here for reaching CMC 2 or less here? Also, would Village Bell-Ringer + Smoke help here? Finally, this'll sound stupid, but I'm thinking of a Design for a Partner Commander Related Mat; but I dunno how to make it GP/Pro Tour Legal. Ideas, if any?
