So I got this Epi prophecy with emg pickups. From reading the boards, I would have better sound with a better amp. Right now I have a roland cube 60.

I have a line on a peavey series 100 (tube amp) or a peavey transitube fx 212. I was wondering which is the better amp for my guitar? or should I hold out for something better? The series 100 is $150 and the 212 is $300. Also, I am playing at home and I really don't need a lot of volume right now.

get a nice 2x12 combo, peavey valveking or carvin mts, b-52 at100, they are all tube and very loud if you need it, but you can actually get decent tone of them at low volume.
these are all budget tube amps btw

i would go for a tube amp with emg's, i've heard emg's played through a tube amp and they sounded awesome(i dont even like emg's, or a lot of metal for that matter) which is what my friend was playing.

You buy guitars that go well with your amp, not the other way around

I play EMGs through a transtube head in my half stack... I like the way it sounds

and why not?

if you like a guitar why not get an amp that sounds good with it?

it is their choice to decide how they purchase things

Because guitars are pretty negligible in terms of shaping your tone. Different guitars of the same pickup configuration will sound basically the same through the the same amp.
