Today's Random card of the day is: Rushing River
I personally don't run it but i have been considering it after my past few games of it in several pauper decks ive been testing. My question is does this translate well into Peasant or does it just float on by?
(sorry about the river pun)

Feb 19, 2018Ulka posted a message on [[Peasant]] The Peasant Cube Discussion Thread (C/U/)Mana breach is an amazing card if you support lockout control in your cube. From cards like Crystal Shard, Icy Manipulator, Ghostly prison or Propaganda, and thier ilk when paired with Mana breach leads to a very strong control suite. I however did remove it when I tried to de-power my control/lockout decks as they were 3/0ing when we played.Posted in: Pauper & Peasant Discussion
Feb 19, 2018I personally love the Steadfast Armasaur because it slots into control so well for my cube as the vigilance becomes oddly relevant in decks that have a decent amount of removal to clear the way. He sits at a solid 1 for me in my cube as he fits a niche but is very strong in said niche.Posted in: Pauper & Peasant Discussion
Feb 16, 2018Today's card is Thalakos ScoutPosted in: Pauper & Peasant Discussion
As I've never played with this Im speculating but here's what I kinda think of it:
This is one of the few shadow cards I have considered in the past. Shadow is an interesting mechanic and adds a cool aspect to attacking. The scout offer a more defensive control an unblockable beater that can evade removal at the cost of a card.
Im interested to hear peoples thoughts on it.
Feb 8, 2018I would recommend Rain of Filth as It enables Ad nauseum combo to work off minimal mana especially with you include Lotus Petal and Mox Diamond.Posted in: Multiplayer Commander Decklists
I do have my primer on this deck concept in my signature but it is out of date but it may have some additional ideas for you.
Feb 7, 2018So I finally set up my list for the upcoming weeks. Let me know if you guys have any thoughts on it.Posted in: Deck Creation (Modern)

Feb 7, 2018I think 2 shackles is ideal in the main deck. It gives us removal but also they can be a tad slower for some matchups and depending on the hand can be a bit of a dead card so 2 main deck seems right but a 3rd sideboard seems good as it seems brutal in several matchups.Posted in: Deck Creation (Modern)
Feb 7, 2018Lupine was one that its all theory so may builds have been untuned and very rough. Lupine while somedays worked really great, (jund and grixis Shadow matchups) othertimes just felt awful.Posted in: Deck Creation (Modern)
I didn't think of Claws + Shackles so that incentives me to play it even more.
Feb 5, 2018Today (and Tomorrows) random card: Deadeye PlunderersPosted in: Pauper & Peasant Discussion
This card I feel alone gives me urges to convert my dimir archetype to an artifact archetype. Paired with Thopter Foundery and Arsenal Thresher It could lead to a fun guild with decent potential.
But back to the card of the day: a 3/3 for 5 mana isnt great but the ability to grow +1/+1 for each Lotus petal you make for 2UB seems grand for more control focused decks.
Feb 5, 2018@ Pem: We don't have a Discord setup as the thread has been enough in the past. It helps Various and I grew up together so we talk a lot about this in the past but this is where most discussion happens.Posted in: Deck Creation (Modern)
@GHG: I feel like mimic is cool but i think Id rather go the route of Lupine Prototype with Molten-tail masticore if Im testing. I feel the mimic vat is super cool and toolboxy but i started to realize it doesn't pan out in my few games Ive tested due to a lack of solid blue creatures that sacrifice themselves, We have mulldrifter and Sidisi's familiar but they doent always seem worth it when dealing with Grand architect Especially since if anyone saw the most recent GP, affinity and humans were running rampant.
With those decks making a comeback I am looking at Vedalken Shackles as a decent removal source as it just cleans affinty up ( and humans smaller dudes)as we can steal and kill things via heartless summoning.
Feb 2, 2018I actually kinda like the card. Its stupid, fits Blacks suicide aggro archetype but is outclassed by Wanted Scoundrels In my opinion. Still a fun cardPosted in: Pauper & Peasant Discussion
And thanks Jovin for starting this back up. I can always help too on this.
Jan 26, 2018I know I may be in a minority here but I have tested havengul lich quite a lot in the past. When the meta is more removal based haven does wonders. He is an all-star against tron which surprise is our worst matchup IMO. However the meta adapted to be too fast for him. However now I feel the meta with all its combos actually could be very worth while. While we don't run the myr or Priest combo he still allows us to recur our threats while being a decent beat down threat on his own.Posted in: Deck Creation (Modern)
I also would like to note that if we play the tolaria west package it means we can play the Claws of Gix for the burn match-up that I know Various loves. The Claws as a sideboard card does allow us to use havengul more efficiently as it would give us a was to prevent exile via Path which is one of the most annoying things that happens to us IMO especially on a wurmcoil engine.
Back more on topic: With havengul I could see us doing a Sphinx Summoner Main board and a havengul Sideboard and swapping them at post board for more control, removal heavy match-ups. Also if we board Havengul in the Sideboard I feel we could easily sideboard a copy of Perilous myr for a semi combo kill.
TL:dr; Havengul has potential in our deck but it may mean adjusting our deck to more toolbox style especially in the sideboard.
Note: sorry I've been MIA. It's been a really rough week and a half at work with trying to get W2s out in time so I should have more test results upcoming soon.
Edit: I realised i never mentioned why we may run perilous myr int he sideboard. Outside of combo potential it allows us to have 'free' shock removal with Heartless summoning on the field.
Jan 16, 2018I guess My main point got lost in all this and its honestly on me for not explaining it how I intended. anywho I digress and will reiterate my point.Posted in: Modern Archives
Yes standard cards make impacts in modern, I was never claiming they didn't. What I was more meaning was in certain card roles such as turn 1 discard or 1 mana burn spell or counterspells ect the threshold of power of cards for them to enter these eternal formats by being printed in standard legal sets is much higher as if they print copies of this they tend to be either reprints of too high of power level for standard (see Thoughtsieze) or they are almost reprints of existing card (see the cards I had commented on above). Due to this Higher threshold of power needed, we see less of certain card roles printed to enter eternal formats. That was all I was meaning by that.
I hope that clarifies what I was meaning.
