Leech Bonder Discussion

Joe9 on Phenax, God of Milling

I almost forgot about the untap symbol! With a little open mana, each of these cards would untap for another round of milling. These tricks also help a lot in combat. They work simply. When Phenax is out, tap these creatures on your turn and leave a little mana open. If an opponent attacks you, you can use your open mana to untap these creatures and block with them. If no one attacks you, then use your open mana during the last end step before your turn to untap these creatures and tap them again for their milling. Then, begin your turn. In reponse to blocking an opponent's attack, you can tap these creatures AGAIN for more milling before damage is dealt. How cool is that?!

Probably the best card in this category, is Knacksaw Clique. When you activate this untap ability, you get a free spell! How cool is that?!

Puresight Merrow trades one blue mana for the ability to "scry" 1 and mill for another 2.

Umbral Mantle eats 3 mana for another round of milling with any creature you control.

Pili-Pala takes 2 mana in exchange for 1 mana and milling 1 card.

Merrow Wavebreakers untaps for 2 to give it flying and let it mill another 3.

Merrow Grimeblotter works great for lowering the damage you might be dealt during an opponent's attack.

Leech Bonder can move counters around, including the -1/-1 counters from it to something else.

Leech Bonder is another cheap untapper. The first creature you target doesn't have to have a counter on it in order for you to untap Leech Bonder/Mairsil. Moving counters around is just an added bonus that you can take advantage of sometimes.

The best strategy with Mathas, Fiend Seeker is to run him in a 4-5 colour deck with Leech Bonder. Then you make a bunch of creature tokens and use mathas's ability to put a bounty counter on an enemy creature, move the token to your creature with Leech Bonder, proliferate the crap out of the bounty counters, redistribute them to all your creature tokens and the sac the tokens, making each opponnet deck themselves as Mathas, Fiend Seeker's ability is a must.

totally legit the best way to play him.

Fate Transfer and Leech Bonder are the only things I can find that allow you to move counters.

One thing I want to make sure is covered. The Leech Bonder combo as I see it can only move counters around (albeit with Hardened Scales it can make more +1/+1 counters) but it can not get rid of them. Sure you can put your -1/-1 counters on your opponents creatures but eventually they will die. So how do you get infinite mana from this? With scales and already having a +1/+1 counter you could get the counters to cancel out. But now we need a lot more moving pieces.

For your infinite +1/+1 counters it's important to note that even with Hardened Scales you do still need at least one +1/+1 counter to start. Sage of Hours doesn't bring any in and I don't recall seeing any spells that target him in your list. Fathom Mage can get one assuming you play another bigger creature after (not terribly hard but not necessarily a given).

Leech Bonder + Paradise Mantle + Devoted Druid

Wouldn't this just kill your Bonder or Druid? You would need a way to generate +1/+1 counters for free to get infinite mana from this.
