Clearing up Peasant Magic Misconceptions

  1. DeathMaster666 In Defiance of Existance

    That looks nice, but will it work without Upheaval?
  2. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    Fact or Fiction is nicely synergistic with Psychatog, and Force of Will is really just another counterspell, even if it's easily the best one in the format. I would definitely try to squeeze in Fact or Fiction, in as many copies as possible...

    The Force can go, in Light of FoF...

    But you could even make the tog hit a little faster, by brain freezing yourself!... it's uncommon...

    then there's mental note...

    and my favorite from my dak-sided blu-playing days - vision charm...

    I'm experimented a little bit with Psychatog in Peasant Magic. It isn't my specialty, but I'm pretty sure that the best Uncommon split for this deck is 3 Fact or Fiction, 2 Psychatog. It may also be reasonable to do 1 Psychatog, 2 Fact or Fiction, 2 Demonic Tutor. It's a difficult call to make. The more Fact or Fiction you have, the more you want to have multiple Psychatogs. With just one copy of Psychatog, if you cast Fact or Fiction and the top five cards are Psychatog and some combination of Gush, Brainstorm, Shadow Rift, etc. your opponent can put you in a tight spot by splitting the cards 4/1 with Psychatog in the small pile. Running a second copy of 'Tog means that you can comfortably take the four card drawers. Using the scheme with Demonic Tutor means that you can always look for whatever it is you don't have yet: typically Fact or Fiction, Psychatog, or Shadow Rift.
  5. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    I was thinking of 2 FoF, 3 'tog myself, since the other way around seems kind of dangerous, but perhaps the risk isn't as big as I thought...

    I don't think Upheaval is key though. I never even liked it...

    The obvious solution is to ban Mountains. :p
  7. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    You sure you're not like Train's evil twin or something?

    Mountains? Bring 'em ON! :p
  9. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    Eh, Memory Lapse... :eek:
  10. train The Wildcard!!!...

    Blue's even overpowered in Peasant...

    now that sucks...

    RedDD is still too fast for it, though.

    I WAS thinking about Duress but in this format maybe Ostricize is better? Hymn to Tourach doesn't get me to SEE my opponent's hand.
  12. train The Wildcard!!!...

    If Red is the problem - try some blasts... there's 8 of them available for Blue...
