Feb 8, 2014XBM Yosho posted a message on The best worst Casual "Vanilla" Pauper deck challenge!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 and Peasant
Feb 8, 2014Posted in: Paper Pauper and 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.
Feb 8, 2014I 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 and Peasant
Feb 5, 2014Posted in: Paper Pauper and 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.
Feb 2, 2014Posted in: Paper Pauper and 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.
Feb 2, 2014I thought I would post up my current delver deck and see the communities thoughts on refining it. The deck runs very stale, I don't really have much fun playing it anymore. I will say I made the switch from Phantasmal Bear to Zephyr Sprite and that made a difference for the better.Posted in: Paper Pauper and Peasant
Feb 1, 2014Just as a friendly reminder, let's not turn this into a banned or restricted discussion. That is how a few other threads got locked because they flew way off topic. Let's keep this primer about the arch type. Some light discussion is okay from time to time but I think we all get the point that until this paper format is sanctioned officially, everything is legal. This paper format has no bans, no restrictions so everything should be included in the primer as a suggestion for use if it is relevant to the arch type.Posted in: Paper Pauper and Peasant Primers
As I have said before, if a discussion must take place on the matter please direct it to the corresponding thread HERE.
I am sure you saw this deck within my Soldier primer, but I figured I would post it in here to be added to the primer as an example deck, tweak it, and or just talk about it.

Pretty straight forward, slap down your creatures and rely on your equipment to activate the abilities. Use your fetch lands to double proc your Adventuring Gear for a deadly strike or massive life gain.

Feb 1, 2014You're running a pretty mana intensive deck, I would consider running Dark Ritual paired with Sign in Blood so you can drop your guys out quickly and get some continued card draw for yourself. This change alone will dramatically speed your deck up.Posted in: Paper Pauper and Peasant
Jan 31, 2014Posted in: Paper Pauper and Peasant PrimersQuote from RininAs I explained in my last post, even though this is paper pauper with no official banlist, I still don't like to include cards from the online banlist in my decks. They're pretty busted and I agree with the bans.
I could add it for educational reasons as a possible (definite, that's how you roll) include for the decks. I probably should anyway since my tastes shouldn't effect the content of the Primer, which is supposed to educate :/
I would agree that they should be added. Regardless of personal tastes the fact remains that this format has no ban list thus all information should be available for people to do with as they wish.
The primer is coming along nicely, some spoiler tags here and there to shrink it a bit and it'll be great!

You make a good point, it is easily the best equipment available. Perhaps since it employs black mana it wasn't added.
Though this also further expresses my point of branching out a bit into other colors. Decks like my Equipment deck that feature both Cranial Plating and Horned Helm make for a lot of fun. A deck that has green mana in it makes Horned Helm even better.
Jan 31, 2014Posted in: Paper Pauper and Peasant PrimersQuote from RininAdded a bit to the Peasant section. Hard finding good tech for the deck. Golem-skin Gauntlets was a big find
Also considering re-naming the Primer since we already have a soldier primer like Dark Ninja said, and it feels redundant even though it's a completely different deck. But I'd still like it to be catchy..
Well considering as this is more based off Equipment then soldiers you can always just rename it [Primer] Pauper / Peasant Equipment.
My Soldier Primer focused more on the tribal aspect and each soldier helping and pumping the other. This one basically has nothing to do with soldiers if the truth were known. You're not using Daru Warchief's in Peasant, you're not using Ballyrush Banneret's or Veteran Swordsmith's in Pauper.
Maybe you can refocus it a bit and branch out into other types of equipment decks and suggestions not just pertaining to soldiers or mono-W. That way you can also add decks that are little power houses like my Equipment deck in my signature. That deck has some beat face power.

I agree, normally Auriok Sunchaser would be the choice but perhaps depending on the meta Carapace Forger's extra point of power and toughness are enough to warrant the use of him.
I personally prefer my version of the deck though.
As far as Terrarion is concerned, it fixes two mana and grants card draw, so I can see the benefits.
Jan 30, 2014I don't really know of any "exclusively" built around this or that Peasant decks. Most of the time they are traditionally built around Pauper because the Pauper (common cards) themselves are so strong and efficient it really doesn't get a great benefit from being brought into Peasant.Posted in: Paper Pauper and Peasant
For instance you don't really build a deck around Mother of Runes, you just sort of add her into your already crazy White Weenie Pauper deck in place of Benevolent Bodyguard. The core of the deck remains the same, but she is just a better version of that card.
As for the cards you mentioned, I don't know if I would actually build a deck around those. I would prefer to add something to an already proven deck that would just make it better such as Vampire Nighthawk, Hypnotic Specter or Demonic Tutor. One card you almost always have to consider for the uncommon slot over a lot is Aether Vial.
Not really a constructive response, I'm sure they're decks out there that are built around something though.
Jan 29, 2014I actually really like that card. I may try and run it in my White Weenie and see how it does. It may be even more useful in Soldiers as that is more aggro oriented so some extra draw would be great.Posted in: Paper Pauper and Peasant

Jun 14, 2013I am very much with you Cz on calling people out on bad advice and the like, I do my very best to keep the paper Pauper/Peasant section alive much as you do with multiplayer, I gave it a rules thread, started the Primer sub-section and I actively call people out if they throw something horrid out there. I certainly hope I don't get a vague ban one day because of it.Posted in: Cz Blog
