A New and Exciting Beginning
 
The End of an Era

    Quick party count for my list (228 Creatures):
    • 5 Clerics (3 white, 1 Seesnya, 1 Orzhov)
    • 16 Wizards (1 white, 9 blue, 1 black, 2 red, 1 azorius, 1 dimir, 1 simic)
    • 9 Rouges (4 blue, 4 black, 1 green)
    • 18 Warriors (5 white, 1 black, 6 red, 5 green, 1 boros)

    Thats roughly 21% of the creatures having one of the party creature types. I'm curious what cards we get but I don't have high hopes for the party mechanic. Hoping for some good modal double faced cards though.

    Also Windrider Wizard is in, so that's potentially +1 wizard

    M21 has had a big impact on my peasant cube. I don't think there has been a more interesting set at least for my list. I ended up including 20 (twenty!) cards and I am confident that most of them stay for quite some time.

    White:
    Seasoned Hallowblade - strong aggro card
    Basri's Solidarity - powerful in the +1/+1 counters deck, always good with creatures but potentially dead with no board

    Blue:
    Shipwreck Dowser - Fits well in the izzet spells matter archetype but should be descent almost always
    Waker of Waves - Perfect piece for the dimir reanimation archetype. Puts itself +1 into the yard and draws you a card. relevant static ability, too.

    Black:
    Silversmote Ghoul - fits quite nice into the orzhov lifegain/drain theme
    Liliana's Devotee - paying 1B for a 3/2 zombie token seems strong, not 100% sure it has a bright future. The lord effect is added value but not the reason for inclusion.
    Goremand - New black curve topper. Reanimation and Aristocrats should be very happy with this
    Village Rites - turn a creature into 2 cards at instant speed and gain a sac trigger - count me in.
    Malefic Scythe - This is in testing mode - seems strong enough.

    Red:
    Heartfire Immolator - Nobrainer. Staple 2 drop in red.
    Kinetic Augur - Good spells matter card
    Havoc Jester - Maybe too parasitic but there is a lot of sacrificing going on in the cube. Has to proof itself though.

    Green:
    Quirion Dryad - Selesnya is all about +1/+1 counters. This is genuinly strong in 2+ color decks.
    Llanowar Visionary - Talking about staples: I dont think this is going anywhere anytime soon.
    Warden of the Woods - A more interesting top end card for green, looks promising.
    Wildwood Scourge - More +1/+1 counters greatness

    Dimir:
    Obsessive Stitcher - As dimir is the reanimation archetype in my cube, this fits very well.

    Rakdos:
    Dire Fleet Warmonger - Rakdos is the home for aristocrats, this card could find a permanent home there. An aggressive sac outlet. yay.

    Izzet:
    Experimental Overload - For the spells matter archetype this seems like a no brainer. Triggers prowess, makes a dude, gets back the best spell. This is so good.

    Selesnya:
    Conclave Mentor - Yet another perfect fit for an archetype. Selesnya is about +1/+1 counters.

    These inclusions brought me to quite some changes on my peasant cube in general. Here is the list: https://cubecobra.com/cube/list/5f02e8171a314e101892d630 Feedback and Drafts are highly appreciated.

    It's always nice when a set brings new live to ones cube and M21 was definetly the set for me. Now I only need to convince my wife to draft it a few times Wink

    Edit: had to edit this because I added even more cards from M21 ...
