Resistant to conscripts and even decent against spot removal... time for a comeback? And yes I burned my 5000th post on this.
He needs a good home though. MBC isn't as great as I'd like it to be right now. Grixis might be good.

Best Pauper Deck in the format, not close:

B_F, the Chapin BUG Vengeance decks are pretty solid. Been noodling with similar ones to pretty broad success. Thragtusk is such a nuts control card. Against Naya or whatever, it's hysterical to play Thragtusk, Image it, and pass. Take another round of beats into your 10-cushioned life, untap and swing, they take, then you Vengeance them. Game 2 they play terrified of what the unholy hell you might do. Good things.
Thragtusk is the new stoneforge mystic. You cram it into any deck, and it instantly becomes better. I wanna run bant thragtusk + dryad delver.
One-of Vengance is really good, as it provides power but you aren't trying to win with just it.
The RWB archetype I made is probably the best place for it, since you can get it back over and over once you lose it. Shame Gerry T tried to take credit for my list though
Yeah, but your "some guy stole this idea from me" routine is getting a bit old. It is, in fact, possible that people develop the same ideas separately from each other, especially in the case of something as limited as Standard MTG.

But on the other hand, you once made an inference that I had stolen a deck idea from you (RUG LD, when you were calling it Horse Feathers) despite the fact that I had developed the list without any knowledge of what you were working on. And it looks like other people are taking the statement seriously.
#magicdramaSo... dunno if it'll get me in trouble or not (don't much care) but what do you guys think about those "spoilers"? The contract idea is neat, even with the near-obvious fakeness.

Blightwind Gust SCREAMS fake to me. Too close to Damantion, which is something a small vocal group want but it makes no sense to print. It also gives black and answer to things it can't normally answer.Contract doesn't seem to work with Hellbent at all (keeps cards in your hand instead of emptying it), which goes against what the mechanics are supposed to be. Contract also seems ten times more likely to be Orzhov's mechanic (Church of Deals, much?). It also isn't grokkable (do I still have that Contract from three turns ago?), as it contains no mechanical way to keep track, violating one of the design philosophies.Selectrictian seems fine, but doesn't seem good enough to be rare. In fact, it looks quite terrible.Jace will never be UR, it makes absolutely no sense for him to be so. I also doubt they'll have designed a two-mana Planeswalker before they actually released their previous two-mana Planeswalker to see how he tested.All of this reeks of the sorts of cards that YMTC novies build - things they think are cool, but aren't actually good design. Too much "I wish we had this thing!" and not enough "This fills a good role for the game."Add to that that we have no images to back any of this up.So, I'm calling fake, fake, fake, fake.
I don't think anybody disagrees with you about G Titan, Cage. Like I said at the start, it is just finding a good home for the big guy.
I want Jarad to be good, but every time I see the card, I just see what he could have been. Like flinging himself, bringing back other dudes, or just starting out bigger, or having his ability to scale better (each green and black CARD in your graveyard, each creature in ALL graveyards).
While I think the spoilers are ilkely fake, I like the idea of the "Contract with X" ability. But think about it: Contract with Rakdos, making a deal with a Demon? Liliana is hunting after demons, after all. Would give them a reason for reprinting her. Also, when I first heard about it, I thought that it was you (as a PW, something they haven't really portrayed well in a while) making a deal with one of the guilds during this big guild melee; a promise to battle for them and in exchange you get the best of their goodies.It seems like something WotC would try out and though simply revealing the card could cause problems, its something that could easily work. It could be a way to start implementing emblems on a larger scale, though it would be confusing to new players (Hint: They're called Expert sets for a reason)
