PlutoniumWedding Nice, Sandstone Needle is a good suggestion. It gives us another way to get him out as early as t2 (with Mana Vault or Seething Song) or t3 in myriad ways.

Will definitely go right in, cheers!

If you're happy with Dwarven Ruins and Crystal Vein you might be interested in Sandstone Needle. It doesn't have the option not to sac, but it's a faster Purphy.

I'd also consider Miren, the Moaning Well since you have a lot of fatties that are going to die anyway, but the usefulness of the life gain obviously depends on your meta.

I like this budget version. Since you are using taplands, use Dwarven Ruins and Sandstone Needle. Both are very budget and add 2 mana.

I don't mean to over step suggestions but maybe utilize draw/discard for card vantage then then some graveyard recursion to cheat out the fattys

Are there any lands that are basically Sandstone Needle but for other colors? They'd be awesome in my bant proliferate deck.

Dwarven Armorer is actually a rare, and Dwarven Ruins is actually an uncommon. Those early sets can be tricky. =P

Maybe use Duergar Assailant or Dwarven Nomad instead? And Sandstone Needle ?

mal099 I'm gonna goldfish a version with some Pentad Prism , Sandstone Needle and the aforementioned cards. I believe you still need to pack some Faithless Looting for card filtering, or at least Thraben Inspector since it's really necessary to have some card draw/filtering for combo pieces. Also you should have some mainboard protection like Standard Bearer , Benevolent Bodyguard or Apostle's Blessing (try not to get rid of yer own auras against white decks) since there's plenty of non-destructive removal around. Also, keep in mind that it's a 3 card combo so on an optimal build you're packing 8 copies of each combo piece, which leaves you little room for removal, protection, ramp, lands, reanimation or whatever you want to fill your deck with.

While those are basically pauper decks that have some more expensive cards taken out of them, I think they will work.

The most powerful card that is banned in several formats, yet cheap are Cloudpost and Glimmerpost . Take a look at pauper decks when those cards were not banned and try to update them within the budget.

Curiously enough, storm should be pretty easy to assemble in this format - sure, you do not get to play Manamorphose , but most anything else is fair game. Sacland or depletion land storm ( Dwarven Ruins and friends or Sandstone Needle and friends) and Temporal Fissure storm should be both easy to make and obnoxious.
