Horobi, Death's Wail Discussion

I'm going to throw out Soltari Guerrillas as some seriously random, anti-illusion tech. The oracle text makes it a free, targeting, activated ability. It is traditionally combined with Horobi, Death's Wail or Cowardice to great effect. Play your cards right and it could easily be a one-sided board wipe.

How would this fair versus Horobi, Death's Wail ?

Ogre Slumlord and Horobi, Death's Wail seem like perfect includes for a Judy deck.

The Blood Cultist will never get the counter in the first place, but getting a counter from its ability won't kill the Cultist.

If you tap Blood Cultist to deal 1 damage to target creature, you've targeted something with an ability. Horobi, Death's Wail triggers while the Cultist's ability is still on the stack, and resolves first. The targeted creature dies. Because Blood Cultist didn't do any damage to it (its ability hasn't resolved yet), then Blood Cultist's second ability doesn't trigger and it doesn't get a counter.

However, if you did somehow use Blood Cultist to damage an enemy creature without targeting it first, and then targeted the creature the Cultist damaged while Horobi is on the battlefield, Horobi's trigger will destroy that creature. Because a creature damaged by Blood Cultist was sent to the graveyard in the same turn it was damaged, Blood Cultist would gain a +1/+1 counter from its second ability, which doesn't target and thus doesn't trigger Horobi.

So if Horobi, Death's Wail is on the battlefield and I tap Blood Cultist and it kills the creature it pinged, then it gets a +1/+1 counter. Will getting the +1/+1 counter kill Blood Cultist?

griffstick on Bounty of might. What cards ...

So i love that this card Bounty of Might says target on it 3 times so that immediately made me think of heroic and Agent of the Fates but heroic doesn't work like that so I had to search the key words "becomes the target" and what I found was very disappointing. There's only a few cards I liked paired with it and the following cards are

So I compiled a list, but now, how do we make it better?

The first combo I have is Assault Formation, Angelic Protector, And Bounty of Might.

That's cool hitting someone for 20. That's perfect if this wasn't Cmdr. But we can do better then that?

So my question to you is, with Bounty of Might saying target on it 3 times, what card or cards do we use to maximize this cards potential? Also is that combo I showed you cool? And would you try that combo in other formats?

Atmosphere on Harambe, Death's Wail

Cybersix: Cauldron of Souls is in as removal when Horobi, Death's Wail is on the field (and becomes a pseudo Plague Wind). The recursion is just a bonus. I do like the idea of a counter spell, though! Am leaning more towards Imp's Mischief or Dash Hopes over Null Brooch. Thoughts?
