    Pauper is robust and full of ideas. I still play quite often and even your rag tag land destruction deck can give my White Weenie a run from time to time.

    I would swap out Phantasmal Bear for Zephyr Sprite as it will make Spellstutter Sprite more useful and give you evasion which is vastly more important then 1 extra power and toughness.

    Cranial Plating is banned online since online is the only sanctioned format for Pauper, not in paper thus usable unless your LGS says otherwise. So for me it stays in.

    I've never thought about Death Denied, it seems like an interesting choice.

    The original deck list contained this.



    This version consists of the Horned Helms being removed in favor of another artifact but in the form of a creature, Ornithopter. It has certainly improved the speed of the deck but now one issue is that I never get to play Nim Shrieker because he simply cost to much. I need something to replace him with and it has to be a creature. I need an artifact creature though or at the very least a creature that takes advantage of artifacts.

    Thoughts? Maybe Frogmite?



    If I wanted to throw this into Peasant it would look like this, so I need something like this Peasant build.. but for Pauper. Yay for Memnite.

    I played that list with 4 Doomed Traveler and no Orings. It didn't do well against other WW and RUG Tron beat me down. Vulshok Morningstar is now replaced by a Plains and 3 Oring.


    That is something I would have suggested. Vulshok Morningstar costs way too much for Pauper and Oblivion Ring is way too valuable.

    This looks more like White Control then White Weenie. Has this deck been tested at all and if so against what?

    Did you need help with this deck? Ideas, thoughts? Or just posting to show?

    You're back! Yay! Hi!

    Very true. The winning lists in the dailies online have been doing really well versus MBC. Running Doomed Traveler, Loyal Cathar, Safehold Elite, Squadron Hawk, Guardian of the Guildpact as well as Maindeck Order of Leitbur makes removal pretty useless against Weenies. The board presence is just overwhelming.


    Yes indeed! I have been so busy lately but now that I have moved to Reno I am running the field with my Pauper decks here. A few of the LGS out here have Pauper tournaments but I blew them out with my White Weenie so friggin hard haha.

    I am looking forward to being more active once again. Still White Weenie is my go to deck for everything Smile

    Oddly enough though my equipment deck in my signature, is friggin smashing a lot harder here then in my old LGS.

    White Weenie, Icatian Javelineers deals with the speed of a Delver of Secrets and Guardian of the Guildpact wrecks Mono-Block minus Unmake.

    The primer has not been updated for a little while but I will add that to the section now.

    Quote from Tvtyrant »
    What do the Stompy players think about Hooting Mandrills? It seems like a sure bet for turn 3-4 as a 1 mana drop to me; the amount of none-recursive pumps will make him cheap quickly, and 4/4 with trample is pretty big for pauper (out of bolt range for sure.) He seems like a good way to extend the power of Stompy if it does not win right off of the bat.


    It is certainly an interesting card. I do like it and it may be viable, my only reservation with it is after turn 3 or even 4 you would have to cast him for the entire mana cost and if you have a second one in your hand he is basically useless for another few turns.

    Granted that may not be the worst thing but I know in my own stompy everything has a purpose at every single moment so I have zero dead cards at any given time. Like I said, my opinion is split; he could be good or he could be dead cards for a few turns. Can you afford to remove something worthwhile at any given time for a late game beater? I don't know.

  • posted a message on Advice for a new Laptop for SC2/D3.
    Greetings everyone,

    I mis-posted this elsewhere so hopefully this is the right location to get a little help.

    I am in the market for a new computer and I am used to the standard gaming rig (Giant PC). I am now at a point in my life where I need portability. I want a computer that is better then what I currently have which I will post at the very end.

    So with that being said I will start off with a few things that I have heard and then a what is better portion.

    1: For SC2 and Diablo3 I have been told and seen from several places and people that Intel is superior to AMD because these two games are more CPU dependent. True? False?

    2: If going with Intel I have heard that the I5 4210U is better then the I7 4510U because these games do not use multi-threading. True? False?

    3: Do I really need a 4GB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 850M or will I be fine with a 2GB NVIDIA GeForce 840M?

    4: I assume that 8GB DDR3L System Memory (1 Dimm) is enough?

    The two systems I am looking at are below.

    HP Envy 15t Select, total cost: $736.39

    Operating system Windows 8.1 64
    Processor and Graphics 4th generation Intel® Core™ i5-4210U Dual Core Processor + 2GB NVIDIA GeForce 840M Graphics
    Display 15.6-inch diagonal Full HD WLED-backlit Display (1920x1080)

    Keyboard Backlit Keyboard
    Personalization HP TrueVision HD Webcam with Dual Digital Microphone, Fingerprint Reader
    Networking 802.11b/g/n WLAN and Bluetooth® [1x1]

    HP Envy 15t, total cost: $761.99 With the 4GB Video Card it is $829.19

    Operating system Windows 8.1 64
    Processor and Graphics 4th generation Intel® Core™ i7-4510U Dual Core Processor + 2GB NVIDIA GeForce 840M Graphics
    Display 15.6-inch diagonal Full HD WLED-backlit Display (1920x1080)

    Primary optical drive SuperMulti DVD burner
    Keyboard Backlit Keyboard
    Personalization HP TrueVision HD Webcam with Dual Digital Microphone, Fingerprint Reader
    Networking 802.11b/g/n WLAN [1x1]

    I appreciate any thoughts you guys have. I really don't want to spend more money then I have to. For reference I can play the game on high/ultra right now with this setup on my PC. Which laptop beats what I currently have?

    Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad CPU Q6600 @ 2.40GHz

    My "Total Package" White Weenie deck only cost me approximately $10.00 give or take a few dimes.

    The only cards more expensive then 10 cents at my LGS were these,

    Unmake = $1.00 per
    Oblivion Ring = .50 cents per

    So even to go highly competitive and versatile the cost is extremely minimal.

    I like the Primer, straight and to the point. As a whole this is everything that is required to get people started playing the Archtype.

    As for your match up section you can most likely take my Total Package White Weenie match up against my own Delver deck for that section if you wish. I don't have an in depth breakdown but my own Delver went 1 and 2 against my White Weenie due to the versatility.
