    No love for renewed faith? Cycling seems so good on a ww deck decause it gives the ca needed to keep playing.

    Other cycling cards that could be used are gempalm avenger and marshaling cry.

    Any thoughts?


    Regarding Renewed Faith, most of the time people tend to run a recurring life gain such as Suture Priest so a life gain card in most cases isn't aren't their radar. As for the cycling ability I don't really find it useful. Mostly because White Weenie focuses on cheap and efficient creatures and spells. If perhaps I had dead cards in my hand I would find it useful but the entire strategy behind White Weenie is to make everything playable at every single moment.

    Gempalm Avenger I can only see use in a soldier deck, not White Weenie. If you check my soldier primer HERE you will see most of the options already have first strike in addition to if I wanted to pay three mana for a pump I could just use Guardians' Pledge.

    Marshaling Cry I will give a nod and actually say it would find use in an aggro version of White Weenie or a tribal soldier deck, but not because of the cycling.

    I have asked this be moved into the Casual & Related Formats section so that it may be discussed accordingly. You will get better assistance there then you will within this sub-forum.

    In the future I highly recommend checking the rules of a format before posting in addition to using the above mentioned deck tags as both will help get you the help you are seeking.

    EDIT: Darkninja107, the link you provided was to the banned card list thread, HERE is the link pertaining to the rules. Smile

    Thanks so much! Wow, there really is a lot left to do on these forums!

    Is anyone still taking after the Mono-black aggro section? Or is Klinscy still dropping by? I haven't seen him in a while.

    Which reminds me: Shoebaka, Shoebaka, SHOEBAKA! Where are you?

    And yeah, nice title! What's the story? Was it the mtgs awards?


    Klinscy is having some things going on in the real world, I am not sure what though. He was working on the banned card thread but the moderators passed the torch to me since Klinscy said he could not finish it. So whether or not he is coming back I don't know. As for Shoebaka, seriously I miss his input. Frown


    The title is my dirty little secret... hehehe

    Just so you guys know I have began to work on the zombie primer (finally, I know). You can watch the progress in my blogs if you so wish, and can comment with suggestions. I am still learning about pauper and how things work, so I could probably use the help. I am confident in my deck building ability and overall Magic no-how, but writing a primer for a format you have just started to get in to is still an interesting task.


    We can help no problem, I am sure you'll do fine though. Have you played in Pauper tournaments before? I think some people just look at the "norm" of common cards and forget about the rest of the good ones, so that is their downfall when making suggestions or primers.

    I also support this idea! I love Primers, especially for Paper Pauper. I feel the more Primers we can get the more diverse the format will look to newcomers and lurkers.

    Reminds me that I have to dedicate time to finishing my Delver Primer since I've come into a lot of free time lately.



    I also support this idea!

    Also, love the new Title XBM!


    That's the idea, get as much new blood in here as we can so we can keep ideas flowing. That's right though, you haven't written a primer yet have you? That would be super if you could knock that out. I still have to finish my Soul Sisters one, though I may put that on the back burner for now and finish up a Gobo primer draft.

    Glad you like the new title. :p

    I sent a PM to Blackvise concerning our thoughts as he is a global mod, so I figured if anyone has the power to do so it would be him. We should hear something back shortly I would imagine.

    I will send a pm to the Blackvise asking for his input. Maybe we can start new threads but transfer all posts to them so we can maintain them. I can do Infect if you want Auras Obermeir.

    You are aware that Ruin Ghost is an uncommon right? So this is no longer a Pauper deck. So you need to make decisions based off what you might encounter at the uncommon Peasant level not just Pauper.

    They'll say yes for sure, I think. No harm in getting a head start!

    Taking XBMs' or my template is good way to go, indeed. Having a main idea of the parts of your primer will help you write it more coherently, instead of just regurgitating information.

    Writing a primer is also a commitment to updating it regularly and posting replies to questions and being active within it. We have a few primers in our forums that are pretty much dead because they were written by people who didn't stick around.


    I was thinking about that actually. A thought if the moderators were to approve it would be to delete them and re-post them under either you or I so we can keep it up to date. The Infect and Aura primers could use some love.

    Well I live and breathe magic so I don't think I'll be going anywhere anytime soon. Plus, with help and input from everyone here I believe I can make a solid Primer, I'll try not to disappoint.


    That's good, glad to have another Pauper player who can contribute. One downfall of primers though can either to not have enough suggestions and in other cases too many, most of which are garbage; but still suggestions are needed so we can please everyone.

    What about my UW Cawblade/Blink thread?

    I'm ready and willing to contribute to the community with some Primers. I could do UW Cawblade, Eye Candy, and maybe even tackle Boros Artifacts since I'm brewing some ideas on that one. I put in a request for permission, so until then I'll just study how to best make a Primer.


    I guess I missed your thread. I thought I scanned pretty well for one, sorry!

    As for making a primer you can use one of mine or Obermeirs as a template in addition to reading over THIS thread.

    Some primers didn't make it very far because certain things were never included or it was just very shoddy work overall. THIS is an example of what not to do. So make sure you add a good chunk of suggestions, not just how you play the deck. People want options! Smile As-well sample deck lists with explanations, match up break down, the whole nine yards.

    If you have a question or anything I'm sure myself or others can easily answer it.

    This deck doesn't play fetches because its a pedant deck list.


    I assume you meant Peasant?

    I suppose that by having some recursive creatures that are slightly beefy and adding some combat tricks, the deck could push some damage through.

    Maybe 12 sisters is too many? If you're gaining more life than you need, but can't win, maybe you have too much life gain and need to readjust the numbers a bit!


    At the end of it all I bumped the deck to Peasant and added Ajani's Pridemate and called it a day. Grin

    I really like him actually, and I think he shouldn't be relegated to only soldier WW. There are enough soldier/knights in almost any WW deck to fit in.

    I also like Loyal Cathar. What do you think of a shell with Loyal Cathar, Doomed Traveler, Kor Skyfisher, Whitemane Lion and 12 Soul Sisters? Could be a recursive aggro shell that gains tons of life.


    The only thing I can think of is how are you going to push through to get the lethal blow? That is the problem with my current Soul Sister deck, it gains lots of life and slowly grinds away. But put anything nasty in front of it and it crumbles.

    Loyal Cathar is a great card, though I don't have room for him. Many people run with him literally all the time. They swear by him as if he was a Guardian of the Guildpact lol.

    Ahh War Falcon. I've seen a few people running him at my shop with some success. I think his soldier/knight only issue scared off some players but for one mana and the right deck he is almost a free turn two hit. Lotus Petal him with a soldier and you are very well setup.

    What do you think about this?

    Dust to Dust would actually work fairly well against my Pestilence deck too.

    What do you think of Guardians' Pledge? I think it could be a relevant card against slower decks, which could be used in the place Prismatic Strands, as it can still deal with similar combat situations and yet deal massive amounts of damage to finish the game more quickly. The only disadvantage I see is that it doesn't have flashback.


    I actually really like that card, maybe you can come up with an aggro version of White Weenie?

    I've used it before in an older version of my White Weenie deck, it was more of a developing version of White Weenie.

    The card was perfect for tribal soldiers too. In the right soldier deck and if you run Lotus Petal you can do some serious damage quickly.

    So, essentially, immaturity?

    Weird


    To sum it up, yes. Immaturity is an epidemic online.

    Flaming is flaming, if you get a warning or anything or the sort in a thread then continue the subject through the private message system I don't know how that couldn't be considered anything else. You could even take it to another level and call it borderline harassment if it gets to bad.

    People do it because the internet is a safety net. You can take a different 'tough guy' persona online with little to no substantial consequence in the real world. They either get a kick out of it, or don't have the capacity to understand when to drop a certain subject matter.
