Fiend Hunter

Creature — Human Cleric

When Fiend Hunter enters the battlefield, you may exile another target creature.

When Fiend Hunter leaves the battlefield, return the exiled card to the battlefield under its owner's control.

Abdel Adrian, Gorion's Ward has a trigger with a duration like Banishing Light and Banisher Priest, not an ETB and a LTB like Oblivion Ring and Fiend Hunter. The effect ends and the permanents are returned as soon as Abdel Adrian, Gorion's Ward leaves the battlefield. This is not a trigger and doesn't use the stack. The exiled permanents will be returned before Abdel Adrian, Gorion's Ward re-enters the battlefield and can be targeted with the new ETB to be exiled again if you wish.

Sephyrias on Best Commanders in EDH [Tier List] Part 1

3 months ago

Nonary27 There are a lot of competitive/fringe competitive commanders in both sets.

New Capenna

Lagrella, the Magpie serves as Fiend Hunter in the command zone, letting you do sacrifice combos with Karmic Guide. She'll probably end up somewhere close to Saffi Eriksdotter.

Cormela, Glamour Thief combos with reanimator spells like Footsteps of the Goryo as long as you have cost reduction cards like Goblin Electromancer or a sac outlet that generates mana. I think she's pretty strong. Anhelo, the Painter is a grixis version of Kalamax, the Stormsire. Probably the best of the new Grixis commanders. Evelyn, the Covetous is weaker than it looks. I don't think there is an infinite blink/flicker/cloning combo piece that's also a vampire. Probably not better than Vela the Night-Clad, even with the extra color. Lord Xander, the Collector has a big impact on casual tables, but is nowhere near as relevant in competitive play. Would put him somewhere close to Evelyn.

Falco Spara, Pactweaver is an okay value engine, but you have to jump through extra hoops to go infinite with it compared to Elsha of the Infinite, so it will be a few tiers lower than Elsha. Rigo, Streetwise Mentor has to compete with Edric, Spymaster of Trest, they want to do more or less the same thing. I'm not sure if Rigo is better or worse.

Ognis, the Dragon's Lash does the same as Grand Warlord Radha. You get an extra color, but have the restriction regarding haste in exchange. Henzie "Toolbox" Torre is just a bad Grim Haruspex that can serve as pseudo-haste-enabler. Not weak, but also not very strong. Rocco, Cabaretti Caterer is a Wargate for creatures in the command zone. Might be the strongest Naya legend to date, although Marath, Will of the Wild is no joke either. Jolene, the Plunder Queen enables untap combos with Black Market Tycoon, but it just ends up being a much worse version of the Freed from the Real combos that other commanders can do.

None of the others are worth mentioning imo.

Commander Legends 2

Abdel Adrian, Gorion's Ward is similar to Lagrella, all about Fiend Hunter-type flicker/sacrifice combos. Candlekeep Sage is probably the best background for it. Alaundo the Seer is a simic version of Jhoira of the Ghitu, except that it's slower, but also draws cards. Bhaal, Lord of Murder is more or less an Odric's Outrider in the command zone, but that it only counts for nontoken creatures means you can't combo with Scurry Oak, so it's probably not that great. I think Duke Ulder Ravengard combos with Port Razer?

Gale, Waterdeep Prodigy sort of gives all your instants & sorceries flashback, which is usually very powerful. Not sure how good it ends up being in practice however. Ganax, Astral Hunter is basically just Galazeth Prismari. Kagha, Shadow Archdruid is yet another Golgari recursion commander, which are usually at least decent. Jan Jansen, Chaos Crafter goes infinite with Clock of Omens and Liquimetal Coating.

Baba Lysaga, Night Witch, Bane, Lord of Darkness, Dynaheir, Invoker Adept, Gorion, Wise Mentor and Jaheira, Friend of the Forest have a lot of combo potential, but I'm not sure how to break them yet.

Mousemke on Imperial Taxation

I have def considered Solitudes and was thinking of picking up 2. But the reason I have not yet is because they are pretty expensive for something that would be Sideboard tech. March of Otherworldly Light and Skyclave Apparition do so much work in the deck and I see solitude as a better Fiend Hunter, sided in vs creatures MV larger than 4 (or if more removal is required). Solitude also cannot be fetched with recruiter, which is disappointing.

Though, as I do realize the power of solitude in other decks, it may be worth playing around with.

Where I am right now is basically trying to develop the difference between taxes vs the normal mono- taxes

TeyoSelflessProtector on Carole Baskin | Trynn + Silvar

I run a fairly similar deck, haven't put it on TappedOut yet tho. Just a few fun little suggestions that I use, mostly because my LGS is a bit boardwipe happy. Fiend Hunter + Angel of Glory's Rise go infinite. So infinite sacs to Silvar. Whisper, Blood Liturgist is nice for getting pieces back or cheating stuff into play. Gerrard, Weatherlight Hero can let you sac your entire board to Silvar in response to a board wipe. Of course, your list is much more competitive than mine is. Just a few fun little suggestions. Love the deck, and may you draw well.

You could also consider Gerrard, Weatherlight Hero, Reconnaissance, Angel of Glory's Rise, and Paladin Class. Makes for some boardwipe resistance, Recon is actually better than vigilance, and Angel of Glory's Rise actually loops with Fiend Hunter with a sac outlet. Lets you commit to your board state with extra reassurance that you don't have to worry about over-committing.

IHATENAMES on Avacyn, Angel of Wipes

I like and hate alot of what I see here. Land destruction is difficult to play unless you tell people before a game "o hey I run some Armageddon effects" but it is also one if whites way to win by resource denial.

I think you need to focus on your mana curve. You have many impactful 6 drops. Which can help only if you get there. Replacing some with ramp could help.

Marble Diamond I have come to believe is a bad card there are so many 2 mana rocks that this can easily be upgraded with a cheap Alternative.

Magus of the Disk board wide every turn with your commander.

You should probably designate some targeted removal for artifacts as Shadowspear is your biggest concern.

Crescendo of War helps end games you can block for days not your opponents.

A sac outlet for when you may need to wipe without avacyn. Altar of Dementia Perhaps.

Some sort of non indestructible protection like Ghostway or Eerie Interlude orGuardian of Faith

I'd look into 1 or 2 indestructible creatures so you can wipe without needing avacyn to break the Symmetry. Besides Stuffy Doll I don't run alot but it's something to look at maybe.

You have a inf combo w/ a sac outlet btw. Sun Titan Fiend Hunter effect with sac . Hunter exile sun titan sac repeat.

Gidgetimer on Recent Redesign - Need to …

I didn't look too closely at the deck past seeing that it was mono-white since I don't really have the time to do a deep dive on it at this moment, so some of my suggestions may already be in there or may not be what you are wanting to do.

To help with the nonbos there are cards like Flickerform or Flickerwisp that could help with Containment Priest. Flickerform may be especially fun since you run Fiend Hunter effects. You can put it on one of the Fiend Hunters and then respond to the ETB with a Flickerform activation putting the linked LTB on top of the ETB returning nothing and then exiling a creature forever. You could also exile the Priest with one of your Fiend Hunter effects if you have a high enough density of them.

Eerie Interlude and Ghostway might also be fun includes. Not only can they remove a Containment Priest until end step so that you can make tokens. They can also let you completely dodge your own Wraths.

One last note. In both my previous response and this one "Fiend Hunter effects" refers strictly to things that are two abilities. An ETB and then a line break and a LTB. Banisher Priest effects that are a single ETB that says "When...enters the battlefield exile...until" act differently and will not produce the same results.
