    I would say Hope of Ghirapur. I think it is the worst colorless legendary creature (i.e. worst color). The two other artifact legends with a colorless identity are better in an artifact deck and the eldrazi are atleast bombs.

    alternately, Emrakul, the Aeons Torn (or some other banned card) since you wont be allowed to play it...

    Maybe one of the escape cards? e.g. sleep of the dead: It slows down a creature and returns child to command zone. The problem is that only Sentinel's Eyes looks pushed amongst the common escape cards and that card does not fit with child

    2) Can we go back to the second card drawn archetype from Eldraine? This UR flash archetype seems way weaker.

    I mean, I love that archetype. I'm playing it as my main Arena deck right now so I'd love more support. BUT... I don't want any archetype to become evergreen or pseudo-evergreen. That's part of what keeps limited fresh.

    Many archetypes are evergreen or pseudo-evergreen in limited, because of color specialties. E.g. WU fliers, or R+something aggro (the other color can vary among the non-blue colors, but most RW,RG,RB limited decks in all sets are aggressive). This is also why people can say that a card is good in limited, even then most of the set has not been spoiled.

    Well i have a rules question: van you play Wheel of Fate for 0 and Exile 3 cards from your Grave with Underworld breach?

    No. There is no mana cost on Wheel of fate and you can therefore not pay it.

    What happens with sub-types? Like, basic land types gives abillities to cards. If it erases them (I think it should - you need a card type to have a sub type for that card type), then this will in effect remove basic lands abillity to produce mana (or lands with mana abillities only from their basic land types, like temple garden).

    I don't think every Thrasios deck should be Thrasios/Kydele. Kydele would be waste in the deck. It's not a benefit to NOT play a card I want...and to use Kydele instead. Make sense?

    Not really. Would you play more than 60 cards in 60-card format? Most would not and it is the same thing here (not counting battle of wits decks). Starting with 1 less card in deck (in this case permanently sitting in your command zone) IS an advantage.

    Note: I am talking trying to maximize win pr. here

    WTF! Why didn't Noble Hierarch gain the noble type? She is a hierarch... she is a noble... but she isn't noble at the same time. Com'on, Wizards, you should be kidding us.

    Because the word noble has two meanings and this is likely to be the second (it means aristocrat as a noun or very moral/fine personal qualities as an adjective). Thus, she is noble, but not a noble...

    Is this for multi or duels? If multi, Seedborn muse and other untappers are generally very nice.

    Mirror Entity is nasty, because many of your creatures are small.

    All the cards that make mana based on number of elves are very strong, ecspecially the cheaper ones (I run the ones costing less than 4). Most are creatures but there is an aura too. Note, you do not need more elves really for these to be strong.

    Gaea's cradle is absurdly powerful, but quite a bit outside your prize range (that plus a ton of ways to find it is how you start winning around turn 4, which does mean that this would be a bad idea).

    Earthcraft is also outside your price range, but much closer and also very strong (ecspecially if you use things like wild growth or utopia sprawl over the mana elves suggested by others).

    Cards I find funny (i.e. seems good but are perhaps not good enough for a truely competive deck, which seems to suit you): Nacatl War-Pride (remember not to remove the copied tokens if you activate Rhys after attacking) and many of the make a token copy of arbitrary creatures (same reason: you want to copy them).

    I think bouncing them back is too weak. Like, compare Big game hunter and giant killer. If you just play to bounce, big game hunter costs 1 less AND have madness AND none (outside some madness deck and not even many of those) plays big game hunter...

    A more powerfull play would be to just use them straight, e.g. off something with murderous rider and then when you have mana for it, you can play the creature too.

    Ups, I made a mistake: foulmire is uncommon

  • posted a message on Pauper EDH Top 50's
    Perhaps less interesting, but true love’s kiss (better than forsake the worldly I think), silverflame ritual (anthem is quite powerfull with all those 1/1 tokens white got)

    Foulmire knight - I feel 1/1 deathtouch for 1 is fairly good in multiplayer snd the option for cantripping it pulls it over for me. It is fairly clearly more powerfull than rager (1/1 deathtouch>>2/2 and the difference is worth 1 mana ecspecially when you can pay over 2 turns)
    (outside flickering, but I would pick tome raider for that)

    The fact it limits the cost to your availble lands matters alot.

    Seriously, 1/1 haste + strong evasive ability (for 1 mana each use) is a 1 drop artifact nowadays? Wow!

    Quote from Carthage »
    I do welcome the ability to answer other permanent types in the colors that can't, that's an outdated color pie ideal that makes the game worse.

    I just wish they would add it for red, the color they seem to hate the most.

    haphazard bombardment remains one of the worst designs they've ever printed, they went out of their way to NOT give red a flavorful way to destroy enchantments.

    Red has Capricious Efreet which is not too bad at it (it can even be sure if you target one permanent of yours and one of someone else and sac yours or similar in response)

    It is one of those cards that are better in duals. Half the time you will choose yourself.

    To the poster above: note that you may cast the copy.
