Please suggest creatures, of any color, that could be cast for 1 mana, or less, and have or easily gain a power stat of 4 or more.
Here's what I got so far:
- Vexing Devil
- Death's Shadow
- delve creatures Gurmag Angler and the likes
- landfallers Steppe Lynx and the likes
- prowess creatures Monastery Swiftspear , Blistercoil Weird et al
- Archfiend's Vessel
- Serra Ascendant
- Slumbering Dragon
- Hollow One
- Convoke/improvise creatures
- Chandra's Incinerator
- (pseudo) evolvers Experiment One , Champion of the Parish
- Jace's Phantasm
- Pact of the Titan
Levellers are off the table, they just need too much mana to pump.
Which ones am I missing? Not looking for creatures that get pumped by a specific other spell, but rather pump as I play, or get heavy cost reduction. I really need stuff that reaches power 4 quickly and/or easily and not jump through too many hoops.
Thanks in advance!

Alimon238 it's an interesting idea. You could use cards like Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose and Serra Ascendant but I would rather the deck build up life to go for an all out KO with Bolas's Citadel . That being said I have never made a life gain and drain deck. I might not be the best person to ask. If you have a list put together link it here and I'll check it out.

Personally i like Reality Shift over pongify bc it can deal w indestructible creatures like eldrazi. But Swords to Plowshares is the best!
Also i would consider Arcane Denial or Dovin's Veto over redirect.
Luminarch Ascension is an upgrade for griffin aerie.
I would consider Grasp of Fate over act of authority as its a 3-for-1.
I like Vampire Nighthawk over gifted aetherborn.
Also if you want to spend that budget, Serra Ascendant and City of Brass are good cards. But there are probably other cheaper choices to improve your deck if you want also. I really like Phyrexian Arena .
Just some ideas cheers and have fun!!!

Playing my Kinnan, Bonder Prodigy deck right now, actually. I just ended my 4th turn. My boardstate looks like this:
- Kinnan, Bonder Prodigy
- Selvala, Heart of the Wilds
- It That Betrays
- Nyxbloom Ancient
- Vesuvan Shapeshifter copying Nyxbloom Ancient
- Stunt Double copying Vesuvan Shapeshifter who is copying Nyxbloom Ancient (So both have the morph ability to later copy other creatures ;3)
- Blightsteel Colossus
- Phyrexian Metamorph
- Meteor Golem who just took down a T1 Serra Ascendant
- Worldspine Wurm
- Wurmcoil Engine
- Tropical Island
- Mox Diamond
- Talisman of Curiosity
- Breeding Pool
- Rimewood Falls
- Skyclave Relic which was kicked so also,
- Skyclave Relic token
- Skyclave Relic token
- Empowered Autogenerator <-- Seriously so good
- Arcane Signet
Oh and someone blew up my Nyx Lotus . Guess they were scared I'd get too much mana?
Anyway I activated Kinnan 9 times on turn 4. Could have kept going but I ran out of , haha. Still had 18x though :/ Dang.

Here's a few suggestions to get started with cutting.
Light of Hope fits your themes as well
Aetherflux Reservoir can be a wincon as well as slow your casting life loss

Soul Sisters, despite being a tier 2 deck, can do very well in tournaments. However, there are less and less Soul Sisters decks in the wild. Does this mean that Soul Sisters is dying?
Also, Soul Sisters is getting more and more expensive! The Heliod, Sun-Crowned + Walking Ballista is being played in Soul Sisters (which isn't very Soul Sistery) plus Ajani, Strength of the Pride making decks more and more expensive. Not only this, but Serra Ascendant is spiking right now, bringing the pride of decks way too high.
Can Soul Sisters be saved, or is it too late?
