Quote from Runner5678 »Sure. We could use Lanxal's because he's never around anymore.
Quote from k_alkI could do the project for this year; it's definitely worth having someone do it, especially since the pauper cube card pool has gotten quite a few new good cards this last year, not to mention how useful of a resource it is.
Quote from jonboyjonCommon removal now looks like Sip of Hemlock or Assassin's Strike.
Quote from VolcanonEvery set since the dawn of time has had overcosted crap removal. They are reducing the number of absolute answers at common but we're still going to get stuff like stab wound. Theros they deliberately underpowered removal so you can play with your rawr monsters.
Quote from k_alkI'd definitely recommend trying out Rock Slide - it plays very differently from the other x spells and is pretty good. Control decks are often happy with it as early as turn 3 or 4 (and then want it pretty much every turn after that), and aggro decks like it for breaking open stalled board states late game at instant speed. We have very few good mass removal spells anyway, and a one-sided, instant-speed wrath for 6ish mana is highly playable for us.
