When playing in the Paper Pauper format, once a common, always a common applies. So Rancor is 100% legal for Pauper play here in paper.Posted in: Paper Pauper / Peasant

I like all of the ideas both of you have mentioned. I will implement and or pass along most if not all of them here shortly. I have been busy with work and yada yada so things will get rolling here soon!Posted in: Paper Pauper / Peasant
Thank you for contributing.

Hang on a second, if you are using that website then why are you going by the average price? It's Pauper so realistically the condition of the cards shouldn't matter. Just go by the lowest cost and you can fit in whatever you want. If they didn't stipulate that then I suggest doing that.Posted in: Paper Pauper / Peasant

Well, since you are allowed to use Invigorate you absolutely need to make that a four of no matter what. I also dislike Virulent Sliver in this deck, he is basically useless in my opinion. This deck is obviously going for the quick kill, so I would drop your creature count down to fourteen rather then sixteen and focus more on the spells.Posted in: Paper Pauper / Peasant
I would suggest spells such as Groundswell and or Mutagenic Growth which may be cheap. It's a shame about the $10.00 cap because in most cases a T2 win will come at the hands of Rancor.

What about running with Lotus Petal? Can't really deny the speed advantage of the card in an aggro deck, I run it in my Turbo Soldiers and it allows me to close out games in just a few turns. If you don't want to increase your mana count that could be a solution.Posted in: Paper Pauper/Peasant Primers
A guy at our local tournaments runs a MBA and places top ten usually. I will have to get his deck list but he does run with four Dark Rituals, four Sign in Bloods and four Lotus Petals for sure. I know he also uses Vault Skirge and Carnophage too. I haven't actually played against the guy but he does manage to race Burn and win maybe about 80% of the time. I know he gets completely destroyed by White Weenie and Affinity though.

The idea is still on the drawing board for now. I still trying to develop fair decks. The actual program won't start until this year so I still have time to make at-least two decks of each color.Posted in: Paper Pauper / Peasant

Posted in: Paper Pauper / PeasantQuote from SeireiHm I was wondering.
Since the old Urzatron combo is common, wouldn't it be better to drop the reduce the red splash and switch some lands over to that?
And how about Explore or Summer Bloom for the ramping?
Just a few thoughts. I love the eldrazi cards and I'd like to build a viable peasant deck with them.
Summer Bloom is not legal in Pauper because it was only released as an uncommon in the Ninth Edition.

I think I might want to try and add some Lotus Petals to speed the deck up a bit. Delver is already fast but I think a bit more speed might make me enjoy it a bit more. As for Zephyr Sprite, I got sick of nearly everything taking out my Phantasmal bears so that is why I made the swap.Posted in: Paper Pauper / Peasant

Posted in: Paper Pauper / PeasantQuote from JandroJust FYI, Cloudpost is banned in pauper.
Please understand the rules of a certain format before making blatant posts. This format falls under paper, paper Pauper is an unofficial format thus it has no such restrictions officially. The only official form of Pauper is online. However if a playgroup wishes to enforce a ban list they can.

Posted in: Paper Pauper/Peasant PrimersQuote from Darkninja107Found it! Razor Barrier does this. It costs 2 mana instead of 1 though, but it gets the job done.
And if you face matchups in which your Equipment is being destroyed options like Mine Excavation, Leonin Squire and Salvage Scout can help.
I also saw a sideboard worthy card that can wreck this deck: Strip Bare! If equipment decks were a thing in my meta I would run it. Razor Barrier or Apostle's Blessing can stop it in its tracks.
One last thing: Would War Report be a good sideboard option against some aggro decks and mirror matches? This could gain you a lot of life to lock in a win against certain matchups.
Those are some good options! Strip Bare is a pretty beast card and War Report is a pretty bonkers sideboard option for anything artifact related.
