Hunted Witness Discussion

Apollo_Paladin on Vito

Alseid of Life's Bounty would make a better replacement for you than Court Cleric since he can double as protection for a more important creature (like your Vito). Especially since you're not even running an Ajani walker for his extra +1/+1

I also like Vampire of the Dire Moon instead of Banehound. Haste on a 1/1 isn't really a huge deal, and having a Deathtouch option in addition to their Lifelink means they can double as genuinely threatening blockers still (unlike the hound).

Finally,Speaker of the Heavens would probably suit you a lot better than Hunted Witness and Vizkopa Vampire

Hopefully these suggestions help you along a little bit. None of them are particularly costly to order singles of either (since that's a big consideration for my own decks).

Any suggestions? I am thinking about taking out the sacrifice combo involving Luminous Broodmoth, Solemnity, an altar, and a non-flying creature since it is not optimized in a deck that should probably be angel tribal, even though it can pull off some crazy stuff, like using the Altar of Dementia and a card like Hunted Witness to mill out all opponents. In mono-white. Or put all of the plains in the deck into play fairly early with Burnished Hart. I would love suggestions.

Eloniel Lurrus is alright, but I don't think any of the CMC < 2 permanents in the deck are worth recurring only once per turn. I already have Phyrexian Reclamation and the Reassembling Skeleton which do a better job. Massacre Wurm is still in the combos since unfortunately, right now I can't edit the description. Every time I save a new description, the editor deletes half of it. I've been waiting to see if it fixes itself, but it hasn't yet, so eventually, I'll have to get the admins' attention. I like Hell's Caretaker but it seems very slow and costly. Cards like that die quickly in my meta, and I don't like playing such slow cards.

sub780lime Personally, I like 1-drop fodder like Garrison Cat more than 2-drops like Tithe Taker. The extra abilities tacked onto two drop fodder don't interest me compared to the tokens they make on death. Since I'm mainly aiming for the tokens, I'd rather them be 1 less mana. That being said, I don't think I'll include the cat since Hunted Witness and Doomed Traveler have been enough.

Garrison cat is similar to Doomed Traveler and Hunted Witness, with Teysa on the battlefield they give 3 death triggers for only 1 mana. They are the "best" card that give 3 death triggers, the others ones cost 2 mana (Orzhov Enforcer, Doomed Dissenter, Tithe Taker, Carrier Thrall, Imperious Oligarch) you could argue about the purpose of token flying, deathtouch, 2/2 but from a cost for deathtrigger perspective it's strickly better.

Priest of Forgotten Gods is VERY good, if you untap with it. I playtested this deck once and I got the nut draw of supplier into priest into another supplier + rally on turn three for the kill. While it won't happen every game, Priest of Forgotten Gods's extra mana speeding up the deck's kill by a whole turn was very impressive. Pretty sure t3 is the fastest reliable kill possible in pioneer. And it's a budget deck!

actually i did a search and this is very close to the top tier build of aristocrats rn: notice how that list isn't even playing removal in the main, which i think is smart considering how fast a kill you get anyway. maybe you can cut the Fatal Pushes for additional sacrifice fodder like Hunted Witness.

Hi there!

A few suggestions to improve your list:

Hope that helps.

Good luck brewing.

I like the Priest of Forgotten Gods. It seems good for card advantage and draining, which is what I was trying to get at recommending Qarsi Sadist. That might just be better though. Do not cut Corpse Knight because it seems important to your strategy at the moment. I still like Bloodsoaked Champion because you never run out of things to recur. However, you can always have a couple of Hunted Witness or Garrison Cat which replace themselves for more targets.

Ooh, I love the idea and totally missed Serrated Scorpion in the spoilers! Call of the Death-Dweller seems great here, too. Do you have Lurrus in the mainboard just for playtesting reasons? Because it obviously breaks his own Companion criteria. (We are working on a way to pull tutors from the SB mid-game in the Playtester!)

I wonder if Spark Harvest would help as targeted removal? Or you can move in the Heartless Acts from the sideboard. Dead Weight is cool with Lurrus, but you can only cast it to kill up to a 4/4, which leaves you pretty open to huge beaters and planeswalkers.

Yarok's Fenlurker would also be a way to methodically strip your opponents of cards, though you can't cast it at instant speed the way you can in the Nightmare Shepherd decks, so your mileage may vary.

I would think you'd want the full 4 Cauldron Familiars, maybe cut a Hunted Witness.

Adding it to a folder to keep an eye on this, seems like a fun strategy!
