Subject: Peasant decks: White Weenie & U/G Poison - mutantman

Here's Jasper with a pair of peasant decks. The first is this.

4 Lantern Kami
4 Suntail Hawk
4 Soltari Foot Soldier
4 Order of Leitbur
4 Knight of the Hokey Pokey
4 Order of the White Shield
4 Tundra Wolves
4 Bonesplitter
2 Vulshok Morningstar
4 Glittering Lynx
2 Disenchant
20 Plains

Doesn't get much simpler. The only part that may give you trouble is doing the Hokey-Pokey. If that's too hard, use Silver Knight, Hand of Honor, Leonin Skyhunter, or White Knight in place of Knight of the Hokey Pokey.
Adding Money: The cards I just mentioned are uncommon, so they're more expensive. You can add them. Crusade is great here, as are Soltari Priest and Soltari Monk. Howling Mine also helps refill your hand once it becomes exhausted, and Umezawa's Jitte is great, as is Skullclamp.
If you like to have a nice finisher for those games that take more than four turns, try out some of the nice big angels white has to offer, such as Exalted Angel or Serra Angel.

4 Sabertooth Cobra
4 Marsh Viper
4 Sakura-Tribe Elder
4 Portent OR Index
4 Viridian Longbow
4 Hermetic Study OR Psionic Gift
3 Sigil of Sleep
4 Wall of Tears OR Steel Wall
4 Mana Leak
4 Freed From the Real
4 Treva's Ruins
10 Island
9 Forest

The deck revolves around the combo of Sabertooth Cobra/Marsh Viper + Viridian Longbow/Hermetic Study/Psionic Gift + Freed From the Real to give the opponent 10 poison counters. Sakura-Tribe Elder accelerates the combo by providing extra mana and manafixing. Portent or Index will speed up the combo by getting you to the pieces quickly. I recommend the former because of its cantrip, but Index gets through more cards. Wall of Tears is simply a blocker to stall until you can get the snakes going.
Adding more money:
Portent becomes Sensei's Divining Top. Wall of Tears becomes Fog bank.
2 Islands and 2 Forests become 4 Yavimaya Coast. That's the essential part for when you're upgrading. Fog Bank should be the highest priority since it's utterly superior to Wall of Tears as a blocker. To add a lot more money, Volcanic Island. Curiosity might be an interesting addition if you were to replace a Sigil of Sleep with it.

That's all I've got. Some other time.
