Sep 12, 2021Narvuntien posted a message on [[Peasant]] The Peasant Cube Discussion Thread (C/U/)With Midnight hunt we are getting Infernal grasp and with all this other basically unconditional removal lately, I don't need Terminate in RB anymore but RB multicoloured cards seem so conditional and synergy based.Posted in: Pauper & Peasant Discussion
Blightning, Bituminous Blast are my other RB cards
What other RB cards are good?
Sep 11, 2021In:Posted in: Pauper & Peasant Discussion
Infernal Grasp at this point I think I'll remove some more of my conditional removal and just have more 2 mana ones.
Deathbonnet sprout lots of synergies in my cube. Enabler and pay off.
Defend the Celestus
Ghoulish Procession I could be convinced depends on how decayed plays
Cathar Commando 1 toughness creatures run into tokens and die.
Sep 9, 2021I like Morbid OpportunistPosted in: Pauper & Peasant Discussion
I have found that 3 mana is kind of too expensive for the spells deck also spellrune painter has no evasion
I think there are just too many good +1/+1 counter cards for Hound Tamer to make it.
Also Masked Vandal, everyone forgets Kaldhiem. Still, I think I'll replace thrashing brontadon, which has very little synergy in my cube.
Sep 7, 2021I like Fleshtaker, yeah the 1 cost makes it slow on its own but there are other sac outlets available in black.Posted in: Pauper & Peasant Discussion
Grizzly Ghoul seems good to me force a bunch of trades then drop a big dude or sac, or +1/+1 counter deck versatile
Defend the Celestus seems like a nice combat trick in the +1/+1 counter deck a lot of ways to get value out of it, instant speed in mono-green is really important.
Loyal gryff is mostly just worse than Stonecloaker except it's a may and doesn't target so you can pick up Calciderm.
I feel like I have to play with Coven to know just how good it is as a mechanic, seems good in aggro I guess but if everything is a bear its not good.

Now it is easier to read and edit.
I started making cuts but then ran into the same issue you did. You need to focus your game plan.
1. How do you intend to win the game?
2. If your game plan is disrupted what will you do
3. How will you stop others from winning first
My first thought is wow you have a lot of tutors, but what are you even tutoring for? You don't have any infinite combos you don't really have any big haymakers just a whole lot of interaction. You even have any Huge creatures to reanimate. The have lots of little creatures to re-cast interact and the reanimation parts of your deck are in conflict with other.
Compare it to my Glissa the traitor deck
While I have lots of interaction how I win is by creating a critical mass of tokens and craterhoof behemothing people or... I can mindslaver lock a person out.. or wurmcoil engine or grave titan or myr battlesphere can just kill people.
You don't have to copy this strategy just that when I sit down to play I know what my game plan is, even if the game itself might force me to change it.

The day/night thing is slightly awkward but it's just the flip requirement for werewolves but now it is applied across the whole battlefield so you can force night and then just play all flipped werewolves instead of having to flip each one.
Sep 1, 2021Narvuntien posted a message on Deck price should be a major discussion point when talking about Rule 0 for Commander.There is also the issue that many red white and red+white decks have to deal with is that they rely heavily on artifacts to do things thier colours can't and since everyone can use those cards they tend to rise in price more than the millionth big green dude.Posted in: Commander (EDH)
Jul 26, 2021I find a lot of people literally just throw together a deck of things they think are cool from thier rare folder, I have built a deck that way.Posted in: Commander (EDH)
So no I don't think the format is reliant on net decking in fact it is probably the format least dependant on it. This is partially because the pre-cons are good that people just start with one and just wing it from there.
Jul 13, 2021I kind of like Jims Version more to be honest. Perhaps you are trying to go more nuts but Jim's Version has a lot more resilience and reliability to it. I don't really like the high mana cost cards in your version I like all the 2-3-4 mana cards but once you go beyond that not a fan.Posted in: Deck Creation (Standard)

Jul 8, 2021Narvuntien posted a message on The Supposed "Death" of Card Single Sales at Local Game Stores (LGSs)?As far as I can tell the only formats anyone plays anymore is Commander. Players only need 1 of a card and not 4 of and there is a lot of interactive cards that are necessary for standard but are just worst than older cards so are never played in commander.Posted in: Magic General

Power word Kill > Go For The Throat
Death-Priest of Myrkul > Entomber Exarch
Bag of Holding
Battle cry Goblin
I need to find the right cut for the battle cry goblin I am pretty sure goblin bushwhacker is a better card. And I'll probably put dragon fodder back in to compliment it.
If I want to bother with the dice rolling then Chaos Channeler would go in for Alpine Guide It is good for ongoing card advantage.
I don't know what to cut for bag of Holding, I have self discard in red and blue to support it.
Jul 6, 2021Hoard Robber this seems weirdly good, black ramp?Posted in: Pauper & Peasant Discussion
Priest of Ancient lore base stats make too bad to replace a wall of omens or good 3 mana blink targets, but I particularly don't like 1 toughness creatures I have too many 1/1 tokens.
I find coloured equipment a bit annoying since I feel like the point of equipment is that any colour can use them.
