Jun 12, 2019i do like this a lot more than jaya even though the +1 does basically nothing. seems good to maybe push a bigger red deck than we're used to at peasant level, and also might be a good tool for red based control decks. idk i'm open to this being ok.Posted in: Pauper & Peasant Discussion
Jun 1, 2019finally time to sit down and spew some thoughts out.Posted in: Pauper & Peasant Discussion
ephemerate: i run cloudshift so this is a fairly easy switcheroo. i don't think i want redundancy for this effect but i think 1 mana blink spells are strong in general so if i have any other appealing cuts i could see running both.
martyr's soul: probably way too conditional and not a 5/4 often enough. but i want to like it.
rhox veteran: good combination of abilities and on a resilient creature. this should be really good at pushing damage through. white has a ton of good 4 drops already though.
valiant changeling: i went through and counted creatures types in white at three or less cmc and i have 16 different creature types. i feel like you are in pretty good shape to cast this t4 often. a 3/3 double striker is strong af. i think i like it.
vesperlark: my cube atm has 45 targets for this ability. not all of them are great, but some value on your 2/1 flier is acceptable obviously. not sure how i feel about this guy.
eyekite: seems easy enough to trigger, and you get a 3/2 flier out of it which is definitely strong. maybe just not as consistent as the 2/1 for 2 fliers we already have heaps of.
faerie seer: i'd rather pay 1 mana more for the 1/3 body.
moonblade shinobi: flying tokens are good, but this thing might need too much happening in its favour to be more than a 3/2. blue tempo decks are pretty good at keeping the board clear though.
oneirophage: this gets big pretty quickly, but i think the base body lets it down too much.
pondering mage: obviously i like ponder, but once you get to 5 mana it's not so amazing. the 3/4 body is quite good for blue though.
watcher for tomorrow: love it, don't think the etbt thing is a big deal at all. seems like a very good 2 drop.
winter's rest: claustrophobia for 2 mana, which is a great rate, but not sure about snow stuff yet. if i figure them out this makes it.
defile: quite strong removal, but we have better options i think.
feaster of fools: i like this a lot as i support tokens in black pretty heavily, and graveyard stuff as well. playing this as a 5 mana 5/5 seems pretty ok.
first-sphere gargantua: you get a ton of value out of this card. none of the individual elements of the card are amazing but you can probably draw two cards with this fairly easily, and it'll probably trade with something. seems fine, just 6 mana is a lot.
gluttonous slug: i love this boi. evolve is one of my favourite mechanics, and starting with zero power makes it super easy to grow. it's also an evasive and resilient threat late game.
sling-gang lieutenant: gives a goblin deck reach, and would be good if you support goblins as an archetype. i don't mind it as is since it's three bodies on one card.
undead augur: bb sucks, and i only run like 10 zombies. card seems strong if you go in on zombies though.
bogardan dragonheart: 4/4 flying haste for 3 if you have fodder lying around is awesome. a curve filler that could double as a finisher might be good but it does come at a cost.
goblin champion: honestly not sure how i feel about this card. exalted is definitely strong.
goblin oriflamme: do i need more anthems? maybe, and this one is cheap.
orcish hellraiser: solid 2 drop body, relevant death trigger, echo isn't expensive. does disrupt your curve but seems strong regardless.
ravenous giant: i mean it's huge but i think i prefer bloodfray giant over it. trample is a thing man.
throes of chaos: this just lets red aggro only draw gas. i don't hate it.
mother bear: bear with pretty nicely costed upside if it's binned. shame it doesn't have the full grizzly fate text though it is still pretty dece.
rime tender: depends on the snow stuff, but it's at least a ramping bear.
saddled rimestag: this thing is huge in green aggro. a 4/4 attacking on t3 is nuts.
treetop ambusher: another nice green aggro card but not sure if it's good enough to break into a tight section.
trumpeting herd: similar to crested herdcaller, except no trample, but cheaper and staggered. at the end of the day a 6/6 over two bodies for 4 mana is not bad at all.
abominable treefolk: if i sort out the snow situation i think this is probably the strongest simic card.
soulherder: great for the blink deck, and is a good win con in it. i dig.
icehide golem: snow again, but the best 1 drop in aggro bar none. sick.
cave of temptation: a good ability on a land which fixes any colour. seems good.
frostwalk bastion: snow again. this land looks really strong though. i love me some manlands.
so many cards. again, a ton to mull over.
May 30, 2019Soulherder seems strong, I'm keen for an actual payoff card for the flicker deck other than just value. Pretty easy include I think. Ephemerate is a pretty easy inclusion over cloudshift as well, the rebound is way better than the niche interactions.Posted in: Pauper & Peasant Discussion
I like moonblade shinobi, and I think it'll be great in tempo decks. Not sure if I have any good cuts for it though.
Watcher for tomorrow seems sweet. I'm a big fan of this boy.
May 29, 2019Had a thought... Is it worth having a copy of snow basics in the cube pool, and if you pick it you can use snow basics instead of that basic? It is definitely a commitment to a snow theme though, and I would need to dig into how many payoffs there actually is for that to not be a terrible idea.Posted in: Pauper & Peasant Discussion
May 29, 2019palingensia posted a message on [[Peasant]] The Peasant Cube Discussion Thread (C/U/)Yeah I personally have no interest in discord, and the forum style is definitely preferable to both.Posted in: Pauper & Peasant Discussion
Does riptide lab have a set peasant section or just all a cluster**** of everything?
May 29, 2019Yeah not sure what I wanna do about the snow cards, but they're strong af so I wanna run them. House ruling lands sounds cheap which I'm a fan of.Posted in: Pauper & Peasant Discussion
I really like these cost reducing cards as well. Strong enough and cheap enough pretty easily.
May 29, 2019palingensia posted a message on [[Peasant]] The Peasant Cube Discussion Thread (C/U/)Yeah... This sucks. is r/peasantcube an option? It basically only links here anyway. I'm curious about this new thing they're doing for when this place closes down too.Posted in: Pauper & Peasant Discussion
May 24, 2019I think our red 2s are good enough that you can just play whatever you want and it'll be fine. There are some minor synergy based ones tucked in too for diversity. I think I like this new guy more than war-name aspirant though.Posted in: Pauper & Peasant Discussion

i'm not that interested in it tbh, pondering at five mana is pretty bad considering we have stuff like mulldrifter and murder of crows available at the same mana cost. the 3/4 body is actually reasonable in blue but i think tandem lookout is a crazy cut for it. but i'm a massive fan of lookout so.
treefolk does look like it will be busted af in its limited environment, and the monstrosity caterpillar seems pretty decent as well honestly. if you can afford snow basics instead of normal basics, treefolk looks like a pretty strong contender for the #1 simic card.
