anything particular in mind? i doubt we will ever see a common as complex as Tortex ever again and i couldnt think of a simple engine we can use right away. even tortex is too clunky in spikey cubes.
Dec 19, 2020so, it seems after we got tons of early spoilers in the last sets, we are on the long end of the stick again and nothing is found yet.Posted in: Pauper & Peasant Discussion
so id like to discuss, what are (realistic) cards your cube would need right now?
i must admit i havent played since Ikoria, because Xmage doesnt support Mutate
so I dont really know how the balance changed.
I guess any form of competitive green card advantage on a stick is always welcomed. as well as the missing (and delayed?) 5/5 for 5, gain 5 life
Nov 13, 2020Humphrey01 posted a message on [[Pauper]] The Pauper Cube Discussion Thread (Commons Only)cutting duals (which all etbT) is not a good idea unless you want to enforce monodecks (why). And the Karoos are by far the best, good players run offcolors even. Ill never cut them.Posted in: Pauper & Peasant Discussion
let the players decide if they want to play a 2 drop or fix their mana.
the cards up there are known and were run by this community (especially nightstalker)
I obv ignore it and the pig, because theyre online only commons.
Fade Away indeed seems kinda interesting, but it gives the opponent the choice, so he will most likely sac lands and just kill you.
Nov 6, 2020funnily enough I ordeered AN Witches after the new art got spoiled. Its definitely not bad, but I definitely prefer the old frame and style.Posted in: Pauper & Peasant Discussion
Usually im a sucker for alt arts, but the extended stuff doesnt really catch me. Id prefered more comic book arts or alternative frames.
Might change my mind if I see the cards in person, but right now im not odering them.
Nov 6, 2020ok my additions will be:Posted in: Pauper & Peasant Discussion
Staunch Throneguard - I like the body. 2/5 Vigilance is fine. could be 1 mana less, but the monarch makes up for it. I mainly want it in B and G I guess.
Azure Fleet Admiral Imo the best monarch creature weve seen so far, as it helps you maintain the monarch.
Eyeblight Massacre im heavy into black control and every sweeper helps. I also run a minor elf theme, so its fun.
Filigree Familiar this is more or less a green card to me, to help against sligh and dont fall back on cards.
Crimson Fleet Commodore finally a great curve topper and playable red monarch.
Champion of the Flame - since i already run Furor of the Bitten, Frenzied Rage and
Madcap Skills (and obv Bonesplitter)
would like: Fiery Cannonade technically a spike card, but my red doesnt support control, so i dont have space (for now)
here is where the set really shines
Annoyed Altisaur best ramptarget so far
Lumengrid Gargoyle replaciing Scion of Ugin for better artifact synergies
Haunted Cloak looks somewhat scary to me. Ill miss the +1+1 from harness though.
Foundry Inspector already had a UW artifact archetype going and the set made me enlarge my colorless section
Maalfeld Twins nice value card in and outside sacstrats
Fall from Favor still not sold on it, but ima try it here
Sisay's Ring more power to colorless ramp
all Diamnods - signets are spike and ramp is great here
Galestrike 2nd repulse never hurts
Fleshbag Marauder will be interesting i recur decks.
Eyeblight Cullers thats a lot of bodies to sac
Maelstrom Colossus almost a 2nd annoyosaur
Makeshift Munitions sacstrats were already a thing
Boarding Party 2:1 cards make the cube
Elvish Doomsayer sac
Skaab Goliath technically a timmy card
Forceful Denial you wanna be careful with countermagic in your other cardsd
cool set. not very powercreeped, but many roleplayers

you need to link cardimages these days because mtgs is always days behind on spoilers
Blue got another monarch and this one i like, although cmc4 kinda hurts, it will easily get back the monarchy
also another sweeper, now the commons start to shape up. guess its really good if you invest in the ur control archetype, which i currently not support.
Nov 4, 2020I ran the wurm for a looong time and its not really good. If your pod knows the cube or paid attention during the draft they will sniff it miles ahead if you pass turn with 7 mana open. And usually you cant afford to skip multiple turns just to catch an attacker, so its just an overcosted fatty. Id say the most promising ramp target is to run UG and power out Spined Megalodon and non hexproof Citanul WoodreadersPosted in: Pauper & Peasant Discussion
If you really want to invest slots into rampfat Id say Altisaur is the best we got so far.
Nov 3, 2020Posted in: Pauper & Peasant DiscussionQuote from Izor »That blue removal spell
Just imagine what exactly needs to happen for you to still win the game if your opponent drops this on 3 on the play targeting your 2-drop and only creature in play.
play a hasty 3 drop and take the monarch?!
unlike palace jailer this thing cant take back the monarch
the card is only good in multiples, quote me on that after you tried it in cubes.
mwanwhile we get another repulse and a really cool cascade monster.
Oct 31, 2020its not bad and certainly quite strong in multiples (constructed), but in cube its only just another removal first. Blue also has enough card draw already and it seems very risky to crown a monarch. Ill stick to Bubble Snare for now. If my opponent only has one creature (unlikely) Im already winning anyway and might as well get draws from a scroll thief variantPosted in: Pauper & Peasant Discussion
