Tenacious Hunter Discussion

noodlelunchbox on Standard -1/-1 Counters

1 month ago

I played a 4-energy last weekend and it was my first time playing against it, the second game was close, the Whirler Virtuosos I had to keep at bay. I have tried the Lost Legacy a few times on my friend and it can be a hit or a miss. It would probably be best to start in the sideboard. Instead I was thinking of adding Unburden, it could be very useful here taking away some options from the other guy. Ifnir Deadlands could be very useful here as well. See if I can find more at the shop. Tenacious Hunter could be fun to play as long as the other guy doesnt take it :)

Tenacious Hunter and Exemplar of Strength are two other good creatures that might be worth considering. I dig the deck idea, especially with the prevalence of Temur/Sultai/4-Color Energy in the meta currently. Personally I would take out the Diabolic Tutor's and probably replace them with more Solemnity and/or removal.

Some suggestions from a deck I have similar to this but is standard:

Tenacious Hunter: Something is gonna have -1/-1, so a 4/4 vigilance and deathtouch is very nice

Majestic Myriarch: Gonna have plenty of tokens, so this guy gets big. Use him to clean house towards the end.

Dont fit the wither theme all too much but are nice to consider

Replace your gifts of paradise with Channeler Initiate a mana dork and you get -1/-1 counters. also consider white mana for dust. I also like Tenacious Hunter in decks like these. Maybe Winding Constrictor to help the counter game.

If you feel like buying a planeswalker deck theres. Liliana, Death Wielder and Liliana's Influence

I feel a little bad, but if you had white you could Slaughter with Grind / Dust also Soul-Scar Mage Blazing Volley and any burn spells are really good.

Try some of the guys like Soulstinger Baleful Ammit Ammit Eternal Tenacious Hunter The works good -1/-1 shenanigans

Out of curiosity, have you considered Tenacious Hunter? A 4/4 for 4 with an added ability if -1/-1 counters are on the field.

Hey thanks for the indepth recommendations Kukitan!!!

I really like how dangerous Tenacious Hunter looks cant believe he has never crossed my path! Would you recommend him over Crocodile of the Crossing?

Majestic Myriarch and Channeler Initiate are both great cards but cards I dont think I will have the wiggle room for at least not a playset of either...

Driven is great and cheaper cmc wise than Overcome but that +2/+2 to all creatures just seems too good! I know I have a couple lying around and will test them both out to see which works better.

I've been playing Magic on and off since the Onslaught and dont like to get too competative so I keep the cost of my ULTRA BUDGET decks around $15 mostly as a deck building challenge for myself. Plus I love beating people's +$200 decks... Its the best!

I have a similar deck. In total it was around 20 dollars. I have a few cards that are different though. Most notable are these 4:

Tenacious Hunter : Since you are always going to have a -1/-1 somewhere, a 4/4 for 4 mana with vigilance and deathtouch is pretty nice. Can get a set for under 40 cents easy on tcg player.

Majestic Myriarch : This card is a bit more expensive but totally worth it if you are willing to go over a bit. It's power and toughness is * / * where * is twice the number of creatures you control. (So say you have 4 tokens and Majestic on the field, he's a 10/10! Not to mention deathtouch if a snake is on the field!). He's a great late game card. However he's like $1 per card so a bit more expensive, but it's beast in this deck.

Channeler Initiate : A better card all around than Exemplar of Strength but also like 50 cents per card. The extra mana is really nice when you need it early in the game and has come in helping alot.

Driven : Highly recommend this card. You get plenty of creatures on the field and some are bound to damage a player, especially deathtouch snake. First would be trample and card draw, which this deck needs badly sometimes. The other is menace with card discard and that really cleans up your opponents hand. This card is so very useful in this deck, especially since the card uses exactly the colors this deck uses. Also like 20 cents per card.

Other noteworthy cards are Hapatra's Mark to help clear up counters on your Ammit Eternal and Life Goes On for cheap life gain, which I've needed to stay alive a bit longer and create more tokens.

As for the suggestions you had earlier, I really would consider another 2 if not 3 Ammit Eternal additions to have a total of 4, they really do make this deck shine. It really depends where you want to spend that $3-$4 though. If anything, I would most likely recommend another 2 Ammit cards and a set of those driven cards.
