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.

idfkgabe on She counter on my spell till I deck

1 month ago

This is a good deck, but I do have suggestions

  1. For some removal I would take either take out 2 Pacifism and replace it with Sleep of the Dead or put in Oblivion Ring

  2. Another thing is that Angel of Serenity costs specifically 4 white mana, I would try to find creatures who use the same ability ( such as Fiend Hunter) or a creature who is big enough to finish the game (Sphinx of Uthuun).

I would suggest adding in Fiend Hunter to combo with Angel of Glory's Rise.

You exile the Angel with Fiend Hunter, sacrifice your board to a sac outlet, making sure to sac Fiend Hunter last. When it leaves, the Angel comes back and brings all your humans back with it. Repeat until you win.

The combo can even be tutored out with Final Parting, putting Fiend Hunter in the graveyard and Angel of Glory's rise into your hand.

Arrzarrina on Roon Shenanigans

19/01/2023 changes: There have been a few rounds of changes. Removed counterspells to attempt to make the deck to make more fun to play against, sold the Mox Diamond because it's become worth a mint in the last 7 years, added more draw and refocused the deck on creature ETB based interaction instead of something like Oblivion Ring. It's a good card but I don't get the value that I could get out of a Fiend Hunter. You know where I'm going with this. I've also added more mana fixing to the land base and adjusted colours for the new balance.

Gidgetimer on Rules question: Blinking Abdel Adrian, …

1 year ago

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.

(Also, for reference the site contains a rules Q&A where you can ask rules questions that is frequented by many extremely knowledgeable users. Some of which may not necessarily see a post in a format forum.)

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

1 year 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

2 years ago

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.
