Jan 11, 2019Sphinx is high power. I actually might have second thoughts about it.Posted in: Pauper & Peasant Discussion
I think Snakeform and Icy Manipulator might be the only answers in my cube to a resolved Sphinx, so frustration levels could be high.
Jan 3, 2019Why do I never learn? I keep waiting excitedly for spoilers to start, and then they just reveal planeswalkers, pushed constructed staples and commander toys.Posted in: Pauper & Peasant Discussion
Show me some cards that I will get to play with !
Jan 2, 2019Any other experiences to report?Posted in: Pauper & Peasant Discussion
I saw an article by Usman Jamil at Coolstuffinc on the downgrades of UMA for Pauper and Peasant cube. Pretty cool that these formats get covered.
For Peasant, it seems to me as if he is pretty high on the reanimator-archetype, as he was impressed by both Angel of Despair and Apprentice Necromancer. He goes as far as calling the angel the clear second best Orzhov card after Lingering Souls. He thinks the other options are not worth it, with Firewing Phoenix described as too expensive and too fragile. A last special mention is given to Laboratory Maniac but he says he "has not had much luck with it".
EDIT: Happy 2019 everyone!
Dec 18, 2018Firewheeler looks strong to me, but I may be "best-case'ing" it. Of course, in our format it is competing against all stars like Nekrataal and Flametongue Kavu, so it is a bit less impressive in relative terms.Posted in: Pauper & Peasant Discussion
Light up the stage is indeed uncommon, and looks interesting. The "end of next turn" thing also means that even if you hit two lands, you at least get to play them both.
EDIT: Afterlife might have something cool for sacrifice decks. Will be interesting to see.

Quote from TheShrike4 »Since there is no Ravnica Allegiance thread yet, what do you guys think about the Rakdos Firewheeler and Growth Spiral? Both look pretty interesting, but the Firewheeler looks much weaker than the other XXYY cards.Quote from VariSami »Rakdos Firewheeler still has quite a bit of potential, but its guild tends to already have good options. Growth Spiral is worthless - it might be a fine card but there is no point in dedicating a guild spot to a glorified Explore. On the other hand, depending on how 'Spectacle' works (and assuming that it is non-rare), Light Up the Stage could prove interesting. In particular, since it specifies the end of your next turn, it already provides a much better baseline for CA in red than prior exile draws available to us.
Dec 14, 2018I agree with Leelue on landwalk.Posted in: Pauper & Peasant Discussion
Also, how often will this really be good? How many artifacts will there be to steal, and how worth it will it be to make that the central focus of your deck?
Also, if you play with min/maxers, it may be a concern that they will want to take time examining the opponent's library, trying to analyze their deck and memorize stuff etc.

Nov 30, 2018I think it's the "pro opininon" that the "not fight over a colour"-strategy in P1P1 should only be the final tiebreaker whenever everything else is equal, and not something that should be a major concern. You are picking first, whoever gets into black(white) to your left is the one who will suffer.Posted in: Pauper & Peasant Discussion
