Pauper is a common only format(Note* if a card is rare, but has ever been printed as common it is allowed) just so you know.

I believe "peasant" is the widely accepted term for the 5x uncommon, rest commons format, but I could be mistaken. I'll assume this is the case anyway, as this deck would have a slightly harder time without access to the Volcannon win condition. In any case, the one change I think I would make is to swap out the Cavern Commandos for Peek, which I find to be very useful in mono-sapphire decks. Time Ripple might also be a consideration as it can hit more targets than the Buccaneer and also save your own stuff, but that's a tougher call.

You are correct, Fenrus.
In 75 cards in Pauper, you have 75 Commons.
In 75 cards in Peasant, you have 70 commons, 5 uncommons. Some people impose a limit of 3 maindeck, 2 sideboard uncommons, but it's usually up to the event organizer as peasant, despite being fleshed out well and an older player run format, is not always as set in stone, as rarities drastically affect card power you have access to in some games.

I was sure Peasant is just "commons+uncommons" o.o

Commons and Uncommons only format is called SilverBlack

So it probably should be GreenWhite here :)
