Black now has access to three blood artist payoffs for creatures dying, red has spiteful prankster (and hissing iguanaur for people who play strictly worse versions of cards), but what does white have?
Quote from Vannatar »Interesting. I guess I didn't consider that the top end threats aren't as game-ending in peasant; maybe that's the check on the archetype I was looking for to reassure me that adding it wouldn't be too strong. So from a cursory glace at your list, you basically recommend running all the lowest cmc reanimation spells?
Quote from DJRedLantern »I think I'd rather have Serra Angel over Radiant Archangel the majority of the time. You need another flying creature for them to be even, and then 2 for the archangel to outpace Serra Angel. But if you already have 2 flying creatures in play you are often times already winning and the Archangel becomes win more. You absolutely can't play Archangel in random white decks without many fliers, because as a 3/3 it's pretty garbage. Whereas, I can see playing Serra Angel in many random white decks and still being decent.
Quote from Vannatar »Hello everyone. I'm pretty new to peasant, so I'd love to get your opinion on Patron of the Valiant compared to other white 5cmc creatures in a 720 card cube.

I know you can't believe this is universally true because I know you don't think this of path to exile. So there is some amount of being good at different stages of the game that is acceptable. Defile never reaches the high point of PtE, obviously, and it requires you to be majority black, but it at least actually functions in the early game where PtE is probably a serious misplay.

Agreed. I've seen users comment that Leelue tries to have an even power level in his cube. If we assume that is the case, it proves that in a powered peasant cube environment, green is the worst colour as he has cut powerful cards from all other colours:
As I run most of these in a 200 card cube, it's not surprising that W and B might be the strongest colours.
