Hunt the Hunter Discussion

If this is mostly casual, some stuff like Hunt the Hunter/Setessan Tactics/Ulvenwald Tracker might perform well, Hankyu,Heavy Arbalest, Livewire Lash, Mortarpod, Shuriken, Surestrike Trident and Wolfhunter's Quiver all exist, as does Brass Squire, Basilisk Collar, Gorgon Flail, Gorgon's Head,Vial of Poison which I know has been used for Brigid, Hero of Kinsbaile edh.

If this is a more competitive legacy meta, Animate Land for land destruction might be an option as a dumb one-off deck.

All told, good luck and have fun testing! If you're looking for something particular just say.

magers Hey dude, thanks for having a look! As far as that card slot goes, I feel Hunt the Hunter is hindered quite substantially by the fact that it can only be used to fight green creatures. The power boost is sweet though so maybe a possible sideboard option, especially as green has the beefiest creatures. The Prey Upon's may well come out in favour of some other white removal in future. Thanks again!

Have you thought about Hunt the Hunter instead of prey upon?

My first thought is that you have nowhere near enough land, even in a mono colour deck the minimum is 19-20, in a two colour deck 21-24 is normal. My second though is that your mana curve is off, you don't have enough 1 and 3 drops and too many 5 and 6 drops.

Ok, that out of the way, there is a simpler question; how do you plan to win?

Hunt the Hunter, Savage Punch or Prey Upon are far more efficient than Hunt the Weak and they're not the only examples.

Cards like Arbor Elf and Sylvan Caryatid are great in multi-colour decks and green is the king for cheap creatures that provide this effect, again it is more efficient than using Nissa's Expedition...

Hope this is of some help, as I said try to work out the focus of the deck and definately add more land.

I think I will definitely replace the Fabled Hero with Ajani's Chosen, but I'm not sure if I want to drop the Ajani, Mentor of Heroes because he is very useful for drawing more creatures and enchantments if the ones on the field are destroyed, and the powering up creatures and extra 100 life are also very helpful as well. Also, I don't think that Hunt the Hunter should go in because I will only have 1 green creature to use it on, and that's going to be the Fleecemane Lion. I was also thinking of replacing the Hero of Leina Tower with a 1 drop that gives me mana like an Avacyn's Pilgrim, what are your thoughts on that?

my shop here's what would happen:

  1. all lands blown up

  2. all important spells countered

  3. burned out right when you tap out

  4. 8-rack kills your hand

  5. infect swings in to end game on turn 3

  6. (check out my stompy deck if you want to see how this would go) some a**hole manages to summon an eldrazi titan on turn 3-4.

My advice? Path to Exile mainboard, and 4x Hunt the Hunter in sideboard.

Okay, so this sideboard advice is mainly coming from my experience as a white weenie player. I'd try 2 Selfless Spirits in the board to have some defense against board wipes and to have some flyers in match ups where that might be relevant (like having them as a last resort to block Affinity's Inkmoth Nexus so you don't totally get obliterated out of nowhere). Next, I'd try 2 Stony Silence to shut down Affinity, Tron, Eggs, Thopter/Sword, and other artifact based decks like equipment builds. Then I'd consider 1 Gaddock Teeg as it cripples decks running Collected Company, decks that need to board wipe you to win, and decks with planeswalkers such as Tron and Bant Superfriends. For all of this I'd get rid of the 2 Hunt the Hunter, the 2 Pyroclasm (I think this card would effect you far too much to be of much use anyway), and the 1 Shattering Blow.
