I feel like Trumpeting Herd and Pondering Mage atleast deserve to be cubeable. 6 power for 4 mana is a really good value. And if you get it on turn 3 with an elf, its even better. And the Mage is still a 3/4 body that can shuffle away dead cards, and then draw one. Its great with blinkers, like the new Ephemerate.
Have we updated the actual drop downs in awhile? I think we're missing stuff.

You might. The only 3cmc mana rock I have is Pristine Talisman, for life gain shenanigans, but I've weaned that down on that.

Pacifism does more in Pauper. There are few creatures I need a more limiting Arrest for. We have Humble as a combat trick, i have not yet seen anyone champion that. Often times dead is more useful to your opponent than on the board neutered.
Yes, but this can be played if you have no creatures. Can slow an aggressor from say 3 or 4 power to 1. Humble cant for more than 1 turn.
Also the color is important. Blue doesnt get 2 cmc "removal" much. Besides Narcolepsy, its mostly tappers for 3 cmc or more. Else I would say why bother with Arrest or Pacifism when Terror and Doom Blade exist.

Enchanted creature loses all abilities and has base power and toughness 1/1"
Seems decent for the mana cost. Will be great in limited.

It's flexible in the way that you can chose up to two targets and choosing 2 lethal targets prevents it from fizzleing against spot removal in response.
Which to me implied that i can target my two, 4/X creatures, target my opponent's X/4, and then even if they remove one of my 4/X the spell will still work.

Technically its 2 creatures you control and damage to any creature, But why you'd hit your own creature... the cases would be slim.
Apr 6, 2019Posted in: Pauper & Peasant DiscussionQuote from Humphrey »If combo attack can target 2 creatures as well, I wonder why we never discussed it. Killing 2:1 even at sorcery speed is at least debatetable.
Anyways, I wouldnt call it staple at instant, because you still need 2 creatures in play which can kill opponents ones and cc3 stays slow af. Kinda reminds me of Kor Chant
Having two, 2/Xs kill a problem X/4 as a punch still seems perfectly acceptible to me. And the bigger your stuff gets, the better it is. Plus because its an instant punch, you can really mess up combat and blocks for an opponent. This is premium removal for green (which seems slowly drifting from fights to punches, and that's totally fine by me.)
Edit: Also combo attack requires 2 creatures. This doesnt. You can still use it with a single creature. And it doesnt fizzle if one creature is removed (but may not be as effective)

"Up to two target creatures you control each deal damage equal to their power to another target creature."
Well that beats Abuscade I think.

Creature - Human Soldier
"Whenever Makeshift Battalion and at least two other creatures attack, put a +1/+1 counter on Makeshift Battalion."
Well this is just great card design. Definitely exciting.
