Sword of the Hours is another Armory of Iroas with marginal upside.
Clay Golem seems ok. At least you get a 4/4 for four mana playable in any deck. The upside seems good. You get a Meteor Golem effect, which is nice.
I also think Meteor is a poor reanimation target. Pretty good etb, bad body. To do that, I play Angel of Despair.

Jul 8, 2021Not a great set, but some fine swaps in my Cube with strickly better options. I loved the idea of Modal Cards, but not many are great. Also maybe White Dragon is not awesome and not better than Alharu, so his inclusion is not great, but let's see. Nobody mentions the White dragon, so probably doesn't deserves a slot. I have time to think aboit this, yet.Posted in: Pauper & Peasant Discussion
My big doubt is if I should consider Battle Cry Goblin. I don't have a box full of goblins (13 red cards have the Goblin creature type or create goblin tokens, 1 black goblin and Murderous Redcap), or any archetype dedicated to them, but the card has its own engine. I accept opinions, if you have something to say here.
- Owlbear, out Arborback Stomper.
- Red Dragon, out Rimrock Knight.
- You see a pair of Goblins, out Magma Jet.
- Dawnbringer Cleric, out Fairgrounds Patrol.
- Priest of Ancient Lore, out Dauntless Cathar.
- White Dragon, out Alharu, Solemn Ritualist.
- You find the Villains' Lair, out Negate.
- Power Word Kill, out Murder.
- Check for traps, out Agonizing Remorse.
Jul 5, 2021I like White Dragon as a curve topper for midrange decks with white. This is a big Kor Hookmaster with good body. A 4/4 flying doing something relevant for combat when etb is good. You can blink it, works in a flyers archetype. White doesn't have many big threats, so I could play it.Posted in: Pauper & Peasant Discussion
Also, Check for traps is another Agonizing Remorse with marginal upside. It doesn't exile from graveyard, but maybe you can scratch 1 life and you don't lose it.
Plate Armor is a really good card for Boros equipments.
Jul 3, 2021I'm going to play Red Dragon . This is a strictly better Volcanic Dragon.Posted in: Pauper & Peasant Discussion
I'm trying to develop a little bit out of green my midrange/ramp decks, specially the gruul section with some more monsters.
This dragon is fine, but I'm also running Rite of the Raging Storm, Charging Monstrosaur and Frenzied Saddlebrute.

Play Carrion Feeder or Bloodthrone Vampire instead.

Thanks for the explanation.
Same, thanks for your reply.
Jul 1, 2021Thoughts on Scion of Stygia?Posted in: Pauper & Peasant Discussion
Roll a D20 and choose target creature.
1-9, tap that creature.
10-20, tap that creature and doesn't untap next turn.
Obviously, not better than Pestermite, or Merfolk Trickster, or Deceiver Exarch... And even Frost Trickster without flash... But, is another option for a flash archetype, isn't it? I think the card is not bad.
Jul 1, 2021River Hoopoe was a good card as a ramp payoff. I think this is even better. The ability es cheaper and the "play a land" is better than "gain 2 life". Also, 4 toughness is good to not die to bolts.Posted in: Pauper & Peasant Discussion
I still miss some good simic fatty to play as a true payoff, instead of this "enablers". Something like Sagu Mauler or Simic Sky Swallower.
Jun 30, 2021DriderPosted in: Pauper & Peasant Discussion
Creature - Elf Spider
Whenever Drider deals combat damage to a player, create a 2/1 Spider creature token with menace and reach.
This doesn't impact the board when arrives (something important for a 5 cmc creature), so I don't see it so good, but the effect is decent.
Jun 30, 2021Note that Overgrowth adds an additional GG to the mana your enchanted land produces (so, 3 mana, 4 if it's a bounceland)Posted in: Pauper & Peasant Discussion
Find the path adds only GG (2 mana) OR the mana your land produces. This is not additional mana, it's choose one: Add GG or add R, for example.
Jun 30, 2021You find the Villains' LairPosted in: Pauper & Peasant Discussion
1UU Instant (Common)
- Counter target spell.
- Draw two cards, then discard two cards.
This card is awesome. A common Archmage's Charm. Better than Neutralize? Or Supreme Will?
Jun 29, 2021I don't know, maybe I'll cut Embereth Shieldbreaker to play this Plundering Barbarian.Posted in: Pauper & Peasant Discussion
Another interesting card:
You see a Pair of Goblins.
- Create two goblin tokens.
- Creatures you control gain +2/+0 until eot.
Jun 29, 2021Posted in: Pauper & Peasant Discussion
Not for me. Haste is better than create a treasure, if you don't have an artifact to destroy.
Dawnbringer Cleric is decent:
When etb, choose one: gain 2 life, destroy target enchantment or exile a card from a graveyard.
Jun 29, 2021OWLBEAR 3GGPosted in: Pauper & Peasant Discussion
Creature: Bird Bear
When ~ ETB, draw a card.
Is this better than Arborback Stomper? I mean, the life gain in Arborback is good to stabilize against aggro, and 5 power is also nice.
Life gain vs card draw...
