Oh I just zoomed in on the Spanish promos that got leaked, the Champion indeed has a gold symbol and is listed as a Store Championship card... same role as Ghalta from the last set.

Crazy thing is Go for the Throat is really not that far behind. In your list it only has 12 targets, and a number of them are things like Pilgrim's Eye and Filigree Familiar which you really aren't looking to doom blade anyways. I think they're pretty close, or at least are very likely to be by the end of this set/block.
Slightly higher, I have 12 "colorless" targets but also Blurry Beeble, Tidehollow Sculler, Baleful Strix and Shardless Agent. Compared to five legends currently (going to at least test Kongming, Iwamori, and actually even Jalira from A25; though OTOH there are very few other CUbes I see around here with the horsemanship trio of Xiahou Dun, Sun Ce, and Lu Xun).
I guess "easily" is a bit misleading, but do expect that it'll be best statistically in most settings.
Mar 21, 2018I'd still expect Steel Leaf Champion at uncommon, though I did see the mock-up of it at rare in the Reid Duke article.Posted in: Pauper & Peasant Discussion
The red Saga mostly already exists as Dangerous Wager. I'd rather get the cards immediately than get a Trumpet Blast two turns later... the timing of getting the Saga to play out well is just way too awkward, since it's often bad both in your opening hand AND as a top-deck. If you can very specifically play a 2-drop into Saga with four mana on T4 or T5 as your last two cards it'll set you up pretty well, but it just goes wrong and becomes bad to worse-than-useless in about a million different situations.
Mar 21, 2018Fall into Oblivion is easily the strongest black removal spell now, which is pretty absurd. The hard question is where's your cutoff and how much variety do you want.Posted in: Pauper & Peasant Discussion
I like Shanna, Sisay's Legacy a medium amount, mostly due to how crappy the other Selesnya cards are.
Keldon Overseer is bad. Underwhelming T3 play, too hard to kick in a deck that reliably wants its "base" mode. Worse than fringe-ish stuff like Brazen Scourge, Fervent Cathar, Goblin Ruinblaster... to say nothing of staple cards like Goblin Heelcutter or Ahn-Crop Crasher.
Saproling Migration is the best of the common 'kicker' cycle by a mile. A couple years ago it would have been completely skippable, but the number of staple/bomb "go wide" green cards in recent years has completely changed that -- Gaea's Anthem, Ridgescale Tusker, Curse of Predation, Great Oak Guardian are all staples and high picks, and all play very nicely with a green Servo Exhibition with very relevant kicker upside.

T3 Nuisance Engine
T5 lose, then reevaluate your life choices
Mar 15, 2018Tactician and Feat are also very cuttable, yeah.Posted in: Pauper & Peasant Discussion
The double symbols don't look that bad. The only 3-drop is Flickerwisp which is very likely still relevant on T4/T5 if you're waiting for a second white source, and you have four duals to get to, say, 11 white and 10 green sources.
Mar 14, 2018Well there's 26 GW spells, nothing off-color is particularly playable aside from MAYBE splashing for Trenches.Posted in: Pauper & Peasant Discussion
I'd cut Centaur Chieftain for sure, then probably... Become Immense and Algae Gharial? Jam the other 23 with Citadel, Shrine, Mine and Sanctuary, some basics there you go.

I would leap out of my chair in joy if I’m playing aggro and my opponent wastes a card on that effect
Mar 9, 2018Posted in: Pauper & Peasant DiscussionQuote from n00b1n8R »Interested:
Charge (is this really a card that's never been made?)
Dark Bargain (spicy instant)
Healing Grace (Counters Bloodhunter Bat)
Llanowar Scout (sick)
Interested but probably rare:
Dauntless Bodyguard (seems a bit too good)
Precognition Field (It's not Future Sight but it's still pretty wild)
Charge is way too low impact to be a worthwhile main-deck card
Dark Bargain is somewhere in the Bitter Revelation tier of black draw that you don't really want
Thumbs up for bat based meme
Llanowar Scout is considerably worse than the 1/1s for 1 with the same text box that nobody plays
Dauntless Bodyguard is obviously amazing
Precognition Field (agree that it's likely a rare) is going to underperform compared to Concentrate like 80% of the time
edit: misread that Precog Field can also clear bad lands from the top of your deck late, so it's considerably better than I thought but also slow as ballllllllllllls
Mar 6, 2018It's pretty solid but short of staple status. Wouldn't really be surprised to see it out of a cube at 360, for example.Posted in: Pauper & Peasant Discussion
T3 cast, T4 activate, T5 activate... and when you untap on T6 you've attacked with a total of two power.
There's enough incidental Elves in green for the bonus to be a nice perk, and it CAN take over slow games. Being a lightning-rod for removal as a 3-drop isn't the worst thing, but I can't remember the last time she's made more than two tokens.
