    I'm curious if Guildpact Informant is worth considering. I know proliferate isn't always the highest on people's radar in Pauper as the +1/+1 archetype themes peasant gets aren't there but I felt this might be worth looking at due to the fairie typing for Spellstutter Sprite.

    I also have just started looking into infect in U/G for my pauper cube (which is in a construction atm) in which this seems like a slamdunk

    That Gideon may actually be playable in Constructed, ironically in a control deck since that one-sided exile all effect is really strong.

    Gideon’s Company is an auto-include in Soul Sisters and other lifegain decks and it might be the best PW deck exclusive card ever printed.



    While it may be a card people will test within Soul sisters, it wont replace Ajani's Pridemate. and with how fast soul sister's wants to beat down I feel this won't replace anything in the deck. At 4 cmc and greater, we have Ranger of eos which mostly is there for late game rebuilding and Archangel of thune which ends the game the turn it comes in most of the time.

    Im entering for the Fact or fiction. I would enter for the E-wit but I just got done hand altering my copy.

    I wish I could play many card. Being locked into just Commons and Uncommons is hard. It keeps the power-level quite variable. I wish that Call of the Herd was legal in my cube as that is a card I have loved for years. The other card that I ended up cutting similar to how you are cutting is Willbender as i found i wanted about 3-4 more morphs to makr it worth it in my cube but alas most of the morphers are just subpar.

    Tibalt, Rakish instigator's potential for the burn/aggro in cube is crazy IMO. Im thinking of these Uncommon walkers more of attackable enchantments so in that mid-set I feel they are more interesting.

    Ob Nixilis, the Hate-Twisted is cool but I feel like I will just end up skullclamping my own dudes.

    I feel like while angels offer a lot of ending power we often have plenty of ending power with ajnai's Pridemates and Honor of the pure. My main conecrn is that with the angels you miss a lot of the eary flying pressure/ early blocking that the spirit token makers or squad hawks offer.

    I'd be interested in seeing how this plays though.

    What do you consider "trolling"? Usage of Sarcasm/Irony? Making hyperboles?

    If somebody considers something as trolling 10 other people will go "Dafuq, why is that considered trolling!?!"

    Some clear examples would be nice, so that everybody understands what is considered as "trolling" and what not.

    E.g. this post can be understood as trolling or as a genuine question. I might get banned or I might get an answer, I dunno yet.

    Greetings,

    I feel like it would enable turbo fog to the point it could be come truly viable which would be super interesting to have in the format in my opinion. That or tangle

    Keep discussion on card you'd like to see reprinted or how you think this set will impact modern. This thread is not going to become a state of modern while state is locked. This is the only warning to stay on topic.

    Without context, (aka the State of Modern) discussion is surface level at best. Unlock the other thread if you want more in depth stuff there, and start encouraging people to use the Ignore function. I've got 3 people on my permanent list, and each add increased the value of this site considerably.

    Without an understanding of what Modern is, what suggestions or speculation can even have value?



    Let me be clearer, any discussion on the state of modern without reference to the speculative reprints or how you'd like to see the format shift will not be tolerated. While the ignore function is useful it is not a catch all and should not have to be implemented to create a welcoming and respectful community. As the state of the modern thread is lock, discussion that regards to the locking of the thread should be directed to a Moderator in a Private message and not posted in other threads derailing them. If anyone has more questions on this please Private message me and I can discuss it further with you but this is not the place.

    After some deliberation, we have deemed that the discussion here in the state of modern has been too volatile recently. We here at Mtgsalvation pride ourselves on being a welcoming and civil community for the discussion of Magic the Gathering. While we understand from time to time conversations can get heated, flaming and trolling behaviors are unacceptable and will not be tolerated. In this thread, we have seen some of the worst of this and due to that we are taking stricter action.

    When the thread is unlocked if people continue to flame and troll, we will begin suspensions immediately.

    This is the last warning.

    Arclight has been a breeze for me. I just save the paths for TitI and then focus on just chipping them becasue while arclights can provide a solid burst of damage I found auriok champion has been an allstar. With Lingering Souls and Spectral procession proving enough air blockers I can normally get an Archangle or Pridemate to take them out. Its more of a war of attrition with the Phoenix deck i guess is what Im saying.

    With your build I could see arclight being more an issue due to the lack of fliers and the fact you are going more aggressive than that standard Sisters list.


    I gotta say with dredge and pheonix being top decks right now I love having 2 surgical extractions in the sideboard as it is a free spell that just can save me so much life. Hitting a bloodghast against dredge seals the game up majority of the time same to hitting a pheonix.

    so nobody interested in discussing the fringe stuff? everyone exhausted from the previous posts or is everybody on timeout lol?

    building the T3 I (re)discovered a bunch of interesting stuff. nothing Tier1 worthy ofc, but maybe still interesting for downpowered cubes.

    First the mentioned Kor interaction. It even works in-color with cards like Wall of Resistance. Too bad there are only 2 Kor at common right now.

    Cards I think are reasonably interesting:

    Drelnoch unless it gets removed directly it seems quite good. With some sort of pump it can get quite scary.
    Dreamspoiler Witches with a bunch of cheap spells it can be devastating in cubes with some amount of x/1s. Iirc it was pretty good in lorwyn limited as well.
    Dead Ringers probably the worst wording of all magic (besides illusionary mask) and not oracle rewording whatsoever. But hitting 2 creatures of the same color isnt hard to do and double removal for 5 is good.
    Quarry Hauler was noticed but dismissed in the akh spoiler season, but already pretty solid in a deck that just runs something like Travel Preparations or any creature that comes with at least 2 +1+1 counters or more Ivy Elemental
    Ethersworn Shieldmage rated bad in evaluation and dismissed as artifact dependent card, but its an artifact itself, so its a pretty solid combat trick/pseudoremoval on its own

    also potentially interesting are the Chromatic Sphere variations. They are solid fixing, replace themselves and open some amount of interesting artifact synergies, especially in white. Leonin Squire Trusty Packbeast


    I know I run a UW Artifact aggro deck is MTGO Pauper and yea I love ethersworn sheildmage but i could see him as a cool option in a pauper cube as a fog/removal spell.

    Drelnoch is one of my favorite cards and I actually have a casual deck that stars the tentacle yeti and a few other off attackers with pump spells. I could easily see this being included in a pauper cube with someone's U/G section featured the saboteurs archetype of attackers that draw cards or have on hit effects.

    I'm excited to see the uncommon walkers if we get them. I've considered the walkers from the intro decks before so Im interested to see what they come up with.
