I might end up testing him, but I dunno.. we'll see... I could see it being sweet by playing Alpine Guide and next turn before combat playing Rite of the Raging Storm... we'll see
May 31, 2019I will look at other peoples lists, but these are the cards I am interested in right now... will add more details and what I am likely going to switch out later...Posted in: Pauper & Peasant Discussion
Soulherder -> Mistmeadow Witch
Watcher for Tomorrow -> Errant Ephemeron
Ephemerate -> Cloudshift
Faerie Seer -> Omenspeaker
Throes of Chaos -> Electrostatic Field
Orcish Hellraiser -> Burning Prophet
Goblin Oriflamme -> Weapon Surge
Mother Bear -> Wall of Blossoms
Good-Fortune Unicorn -> Trostani's Summoner
Goblin War Party -> Savage Alliance
Recruit the worthy -> Aven Riftwatcher
Rhox Veteran -> Visionary Augmenter
Gluttonous Slug -> Fledgling Djinn
Ransack the Lab -> Read the Bones
Viashino Sandsprinter -> Splatter Thug
Winding Way -> Vessel of Nascency
Alpine Guide -> Monastery Swiftspear
I think this is my plan right now, will update if I see other changes
May 30, 2019A lot of goodies today...Posted in: Pauper & Peasant Discussion
I will definitely play Soulherder, likely over Mistmeadow Witch
Rotwidow Pack seems promising and fits with my GB GY theme
Urza's Rage probably not for me, I like that it is an instant and can't be countered, but as said above 12 mana is just... not happening
Watcher for Tomorrow is sweet... definitely adding...
Side note, I wish Goblin Champion was battle cry instead of exalted
I think my list right now of possible cards are:
Rotwidow Pack - Seems solid, likely play/test in place of Glowspore Shaman
Soulherder - Seems solid, likely play/test in place of Mistmeadow Witch
Watcher for Tomorrow - In in place of Rise from the Tides
Ephemerate - In in place of Cloudshift
Faerie Seer - In in place of Omenspeaker
Throes of Chaos - Seems solid, likely play/test in place of Savage Alliance
Orcish Hellraiser - Seems solid, likely play/test in place of Burning Prophet
Goblin Oriflamme - In in place of Weapon Surge
Springbloom Druid - Probably not good enough
Mother Bear - Not sure yet, I like the idea and 2/2 bear for 2 is the "bear" pass for stats, the later graveyard ability seems good and works with my color pie ... probably test in place of Wall of Blossoms
Splicer's Skill - Probably not good enough, but may try
Ravenous Giant - I don't think this will be good enough, a lot of my red toppers are haste or deal damage, etc... this just is a 5/5 that gets blocked
Good-Fortune Unicorn - In in place of Trostani's Summoner (Will miss Summoner as one of the great reanimate targets, but really doesn't fit in this guild slot)
Pondering Mage - Probably not good enough, but I do like it may try in place of Tandem Lookout
Goblin War Party - In in place of Electrostatic Field
Martyr's Soul - Not sure about this card now, I was a little hyped, but the more I think about it I think the more its going to not perform...
Valiant Changeling - People are hyped about this, I don't see it happening
May 30, 2019Ephemerate solid replacement for cloudshiftPosted in: Pauper & Peasant Discussion
Faerie Seer nice replacement for Omenspeaker, etc
I am pretty on board with Throes of Chaos. Kinda everything I love about cube in one card, works well in red decks flooding out and in spells matter decks, will definitely test.
Seems like I am interested in like 5-6 cards right now... looking forward to the rest of the set
May 29, 2019ahhabee posted a message on [[Peasant]] The Peasant Cube Discussion Thread (C/U/)Posted in: Pauper & Peasant DiscussionQuote from n00b1n8R »Reddit and Discord are both *****ty replacements for a real forum. I hope that whatever the mods are cooking is a real forum because otherwise we'll probably be losing an irreplaceable resource.
You can't have a 14.6k post thread on reddit with continuous conversation, and discord isn't really any better.
Both are *****ty, but I will probably just use reddit unless someone has a discord setup and people use it

Definitely Good Fortune Unicorn over Juniper Order Ranger for me... the problem I always run into with Juniper Order Ranger is the card is so damn slow it never makes an impact.
May 21, 2019Pondering Mage is interesting. Steep mana cost, but decent body and an amazing ETB effect for those who like to abuse them... Might trade out Tandem Lookout for it.Posted in: Pauper & Peasant Discussion
Dislike Undead Augur, as stated above CC is a hard price to pay and I already have CC black cards. Also, not enough Zombies in my cube to make the incidental additional trigger(s) happen enough.
Goblin War Party is an add for me, not super exciting, but good enough imo
Martyr's Soul could be good enough, will test for sure
Fists of Flame could also be good enough, might replace some bad small burn spell for it
May 13, 2019Posted in: Pauper & Peasant DiscussionQuote from Bellectrons »Yeah I mean, I'm already sort of OK with having the slight imbalance, I guess I was just hoping I could have it both ways haha, like if y'all had any suggestions for hybrid/hybrid-ish cards I was overlooking that I could slot in to balance it a bit more.
I added Snakeform to even out my hybrid section
May 9, 2019Posted in: Pauper & Peasant DiscussionQuote from CadaverousBl00m »Quote from _i0 »Revised (or older) Lightning Bolt reads like it hits planeswalkers
Just for you, I'm going to trawl through my 360 and see exactly how many cards are affected by this.
Let's see how many other cards there are besides Lightning Bolt before I totally freak out (though I suspect it's probably most red spells)...
But lightning bolt does hit planeswalkers...
May 3, 2019Cube updated online, here are my changes:Posted in: Pauper & Peasant Discussion
Up'd my rainbow section (hybrid cards) to 10 and added:
Kiora, Behemoth Beckoner
Saheeli, Sublime Artificer
Angrath, Captain of Chaos
Dovin, Hand of Control
Kaya, Bane of the Dead
Nahiri, Storm of Stone
Vraska, Swarm's Eminence
Removed both Burning-Tree Emissary and Rakdos Cackler
Also added Snakeform, this with Kitchen Finks and Murderous Redcap rounds out my rainbow section now. Should be 4x symbols per color, so hybrid-theory-ish.
BTE has never really played out as well as I would like it to, good ceiling, very mediocre if the ETB isn't used. Cackler is an amazing card, but I want to test Angrath and I don't think cackler is better than redcap.
Added one monocolor PW to each section:
Jiang Yanggu, Wildcrafter
Kasmina, Enigmatic Mentor
Ob Nixilis, the Hate-Twisted
Teyo, the Shieldmage
Tibalt, Rakish Instigator
Cruel Celebrant for Maw of the Obzedat
Obzedaddy is a great card, but doesn't get much love in my cube. Cruel Celebrant also fits in more (I think) with what I am trying to accomplish in this archetype.
Aven Eternal for Pestermite
Pestermite has been mediocre, the comparison of Aven Eternal to Eldrazi Skyspawner makes it an easy swap.
Huatli's Raptor for Qasali Pridemage
Huatli's Raptor fits into this archetype perfectly, even if the proliferate effect doesn't do much when this hits the board, I think the body is still strong enough alone. Removing Qasali Pridemage is still me trying to push my guild sections to be as close to the archetypes I like in my cube.
Paradise Druid for Servant of the Conduit
Easy upgrade in my opinion.
Pledge of Unity for Reap What Is Sown
Easy upgrade in my opinion.
Ral's Outburst for Bloodwater Entity
I don't play online only downgrades in rarity, so Ral's Outburst will be my Prophetic bolt. Entity is just a little slow with putting the card on top of the deck, has been disappointing.
Goblin Banneret for Reckless Waif
Contagion Clasp for Renegade Map
Map has just been bad, clasp looks nice with the addition of PWs and works well in my counters theme anyway.
Bleeding Edge for Corpse Churn
I love me some 2-1's. Way better options than churn for getting cards in the GY and only being able to return a creature is eh.
Eternal Taskmaster for Apprentice Necromancer
Never really got a chance to test the necromancer, but I think necromancer is too slow for the reanimator decks I have built in previous drafts. Taskmaster will be a slow, but hopefully nice grindy card.
Pollenbright Druid for Maulfist Revolutionary
Pollenbright has a lot more upside, Maulfist has been a disappointment.
Burning Prophet for War-Name Aspirant
The discussion on prophet has me interested, I push spells matter, but I think he will do equally well in any red deck.
Dreadmalkin for Gnarled Scarhide
I need more sac outlets, this one is slow, but I think Dreadmalkin will equate to just as much damage as Gnarled Scarhide on average... can also block and of course sac creatures. Just better synergy overall with my cube.
Teferi's Time Twist for Into the Roil
I support blink and time twist is nice because you can also blink permanents which not many blink spells can... can't wait to blink Oblivion Ring with the exile trigger on the stack
A lot of changes for me. We'll see how the PWs work out in the cube, I will not be afraid to replace them/cut them. Overall very happy with the cards in this set though.
Apr 24, 2019I am definitely adding Ob daddy. I think he will be sweet in an aggro deck like you described or even as a gy focused deck saccing your own creatures. I think he's going to be fun.Posted in: Pauper & Peasant Discussion
Apr 23, 2019Posted in: Pauper & Peasant DiscussionQuote from VariSami »I went to 15 hybrids. Any multiple of 5 can be balanced correctly: 5 hybrid cards means 2 half-slots of each colour.
I will be going to 15 hybrid cards too. I care less about having the same number of hybrid cards in each guild, as long as the "hybrid theory" works out, I am good.
