Yep, I think it was your faultQuote from Leelue »I came to say that I didn't think the 9 drop was a 3. I switched into playing worn powerstone and even basalt monolith and it didn't really impress me.
9 mana is just forever, and it still could be a 1 for 1 (when answered) if used in reanimator.
I love trophy hunter more than most but I'm surprised we put it at 3. It's probably partly my fault...
Yeah, I think it is probably the 'best' reanimation target if your opponent has no answer, but if they don't have an answer then many of the other Eldrazi would also win those games; but they also get to win games where you can ramp to 8 or 9 instead of dying with an 11-drop in your hand.Quote from guitarspider »Trophy Hunter is maybe not a typical 3, but I do think 3 is fair.
Pathrazer at 11 isn't playble imho.
I still think 9 is a decent amount for a ramp deck. Certainly achievable, but you can 'ramp out' and be in top deck mode with less than 9 mana. Given the other feedback, let's keep that one at 2. I took a glance at your cube, and my initial impression is that it is heavy on artifact mana, so is probably better in your cube than the average case.Quote from calibretto »
Nine mana is a lot in a 'normal' deck, but for ramp, that shouldn't be hard to reach. That's especially true if you're including the big artifact ramp cards as well as the green ramp spells and mana dorks. Maybe my version of peasant is different from others around here, but I do include a lot of mana rocks and I make sure that ramp is a supported archetype. On more than one occasion I've had drafters tell me Artisan was "too powerful" for peasant. A 9/7 with annihilator 2 that also brings something back is pretty frickin' good, imo, and about the best you can ask for at uncommon and colorless. Just this past weekend my friend played a UG ramp deck and cast Ulamog's Crusher against me. I was able to answer that quickly. He then cast Artisan, brought back his Crusher. The next turn he cast Clone copying the Artisan. Ridiculous.
I couldn't see myself ever building a peasant cube that didn't include at least the two older Eldrazi as my big colorless ramp targets.
