Best Pauper cards in Ixalan?

6 posts in this topic

Looking at it in terms of cube there are a few. I can't wait to get building this now!

Opt is a really welcome reprint.

Skymarch Bloodletter. Black wind drake with a nice etb drain on top. Seems solid.

I'm a fan of Territorial Hammerskull, nice upgrade to master of diversion and it's an awesome looking card.

Jade Guardian essentially a 3/3 hexproof for 4 with a counter synergy seems great to me.

Nest Robber (2/1 haste for 2 seems great alongside rakdos shred-freak and spike jester) 

Bishops Soldier (another new lifelink 2 drop for white after seeker of the way gets downgraded), 

Tishana's wayfinder is really fun for so many archetypes and my number one common from the set. Ramp, discard, improving your next draw and counter synergy too.

I was very disappointed to find I only had one copy of Opt that survived from playing back in Invasion block times, it's a sweet card

For me Jade Guardian has got to be in the discussion for best common in the set, should be a big addition to Pauper

There are a lot of decks that use Squadron Hawk, and even though I don't think this is as good, Legion Conquistador is an option some people might consider. Not sure if paying an extra one for a 2/2 without flying, but hey, who says you have to choose? If you're just looking for Enters the Battlefield triggers, why not play 4 copies of both? :P

 

Legion Conquistador (XLN)

 

Also, if Merfolk ever become a thing in Pauper (we'll see with Rivals of Ixalan, I guess) then for sure this should be a staple in it:

 

River Heralds' Boon (XLN)

I'll be playing around with Wight of Precinct Six, I think it has some potential

Welp,

Squadron Vampires is an obvious one, as is Opt.

I think Pirate's Cutlass, and Siren's Call(?), if you are making a pirate deck, are great additions. The Cutlass is a pretty good card in limited, from what I've seen.
