Sep 29, 2021I feel they don't fulfill the same role. Devotee can also be used as a mid-lategame threat in certain aggro decks, where its +1/+0 to all zombies can really pay off. I feel Opportunist is more suited to slower decks.Posted in: Pauper & Peasant Discussion
Sep 9, 2021I am in the same boat with Dreadhound. Do you feel it straight up replaces ol' Konrad? I feel the added value of the activated ability, plus seeing more things for damage makes me want to stick with Konrad... On the other hand, a 6/6 is really big, and can wrestle with some of green's bigger bodies (Plated Crusher and Warden of the Woods, for instance.)Posted in: Pauper & Peasant Discussion
Sep 4, 2021Diregraf Rebirth seems really solid I think. Similar to Unburial Rites, but green gives access to self-mill, which can be relevant.Posted in: Pauper & Peasant Discussion
Ghoulish Procession seems real solid. Gives all your removal spells extra 'oomph', and isn't expensive at all.
I want to like Seize the Storm, but I think it's too expensive.
Heirloom Mirror seems fun, enabling reanimator in-colour is definitely an upside, however, sorcery speed is a bit of a bummer. Incidental gravehate on the back is cool, though.
I like Hobbling Zombie. Deathtouch has turned out to be quite nice, and having an extra (bad) body attached is nice. Will have to wait and see how Decayed plays out.
Jul 20, 2021Dwarven Hammer. I don't like the randomness on morning star, and it is a pretty bad equipment by itself. The equip cost is a bit too high for the stats it gives. I also run Lightning Spear, and I think I prefer that over it too. But that is probably more because I don't like dice rolls.Posted in: Pauper & Peasant Discussion
On the subject of dice rolls, I feel Ebony Fly is definitely good enough. Shame it enters tapped. We'll see if the feel good moments outweigh the feel bad ones.
Jul 2, 2021I like Devotee a fair lot better than the newcomer. Black 4s are pretty stacked as is, I prefer having better tokens over having slightly more tribal upside. I also feel Bag of Holding is pretty good, on its own its okay, but it is a colourless card, opening up card advantage for decks that normally can't get that. (Boros comes to mind)Posted in: Pauper & Peasant Discussion
It also has marginal upside in most other colours in my cube, with the aforementioned blue looters, but also the red rummage or loot effects. It also pairs nicely with cycling, though not in the reanimator decks, obviously.
Jun 21, 2021Honestly, I feel Civic Wayfinder is much, much better. Being able to get your next landdrop guaranteed is better than maybe ramping a little. Wayfinder is also better with blink or other forms of recursion. However, I am running Tireless Provisioner and am eager to see it in action. I just don't feel it occupies the same space as Wayfinder, as you'd usually be looking to play it t4 to get a landdrop to go along with it.Posted in: Pauper & Peasant Discussion
tldr ETB vs no ETB.
Jun 5, 2021That does seem really solid. I really dig Thraben Watcher as well. I run Intangible Virtue and that card has been fun for a long time, and this does not seem more parasitic at first glance.Posted in: Pauper & Peasant Discussion
Thunderous Orator... I am still not sold on the card. I run it, but it has been terribly unexciting for us. We're likely swapping it out for Barbed Spike.
Jun 5, 2021I, too, am adding Lightning Spear. I do not run equipment support, but I think 'equip 1' is what makes the card worthwhile. And a bad bolt is still a bolt. I'm swapping it for Thermo-Alchemist, since I feel it can be run more effectively in more different aggro archtypes. Definitely not a top-tier card by any means, mind you, but still a card I'd be more than happy to include in most aggressive-leaning Rx decks.Posted in: Pauper & Peasant Discussion
Also I am edging ever closer towards just changing my entire Boros section to stocky bearded guys that care about weapons. (Koll, Bruenor and Reyav)
Jun 1, 2021And the same goes for me, I still run the slime but didn't mention it because between it having deathtouch and it killing lands it is a whole lot better than some of the other green dudes that don't like artifacts or enchantments very much. (Also I just plain forgot about it, lol :p) But yeah I agree with what was said earlier, Evoke just plays so well with some things in the cube, my players always have a lot of fun with the evoke cards we run.Posted in: Pauper & Peasant Discussion
So, for green my artifact/enchantment hate suite consists of:
Conclave Naturalists (which will get replaced by Foundation Breaker)
I really like Tireless Provisioner as well, but I'm very unsure what to cut. Civic Wayfinder is a bit boring, maybe, but it is a very very good card.
Batterbone was fine, up until me reading the equip cost no way am I paying 5 for that.
May 31, 2021I am still running Conclave Naturalists as well, and the Breaker is going in for that. I agree on it being definitely worse than Reclamation Sage, but my cube does have some artifacts and enchantments that can take over the game if left unanswered.Posted in: Pauper & Peasant Discussion
On the Entomb-on-a-stick: I think it having deathtouch is good enough for it to see play in multiple decks. Mind that it can tutor any card to the yard, so getting a fatty to reanimate or some value spell like Roar of the Wurm or Deep Analysis seems good enough for me. I still run Stinkweed Imp, and this seems more or less like a more surgical tool compared to the shotgun blast that is dredge.
May 21, 2021Personally, I feel that adding subpar equipments just to enable other subpar cards is a strategy that might be fun for one or two drafts, but quickly loses its novelty value as they are cards that would always need to be drafted together or be subpar.Posted in: Pauper & Peasant Discussion
I think it also greatly depends on cube size, since you're less likely to get all the pieces in a draft in a 540 cube than in a 360 cube.
However you can fill your entire Boros guild section with dwarves who care about equipment now, so that's pretty fun and flavourful. (Koll, the Forgemaster, Reyav, Master Smith and now this guy). Could be a fun package, but I don't think the number of actually good equipments warrant such a package in Boros just yet. I don't run the 'broken' equipments (both Warhammers and the Clamp), so that may influence my opinion slightly.
