  1. Zendikar Rising? Yeah I'm a little behind. Finally opened our box of ZR yesterday to draft with friends. I haven't been keeping up with which cards were making a splash lately, but these caught my eye. Anyone tried these or other ZR cards in Pauper and found success?
  2. JJ walks us through his newest #Pauper deck, You can Count on Me. This deck will grow out of control REAL quick as you put counters upon counters on dang near everything you have on the battlefield. And at only $25 or 16 tix on MTGO, you can lay the smack down without breaking your wallet! #WeAreMTG https://youtu.be/c-Dn2OxasIQ
  3. I've been goofing off with cards from old sets, trying to build decks from cards I have laying around with mechanics that are set specific. I started a boros Battalion deck and it's shaping up to be pretty decent (for casual play). After a couple of games I realized a lot of the cards are common, anyone ever tried a Battalion deck?
  4. Alright y'all, I need advice. And before you ask, I know, been gone forever, etc. I'm planning on going to GP Denver and playing in the pauper event. A couple of my friends are going, and I want to try and win. I've been looking at the Professor's videos on deck techs, but I can't decide what to run. I would like to keep the deck relatively cheap (preferably <$45) and have it actually be good/useful, hopefully enough to get me to win. Any suggestions? Decklists? Don't do it?
  5. Hey everyone! In this video, JJ goes over RWU Soldiers, a Red, White, and Blue Pauper deck. This deck was created to honor those that have, and those that currently are, serving in our military. Your service is greatly appreciated and will not be forgotten. This three color soldier tribal deck has some good synergy as your soldiers work together to overpower our opponents. And at $33 or 10 tickets on MTGO, it's budget to boot! https://youtu.be/muSxBne9Hz4
  6. I'm catching up on my podcasts (I'll get current eventually) and finally caught the @MTGZuby episode that he interviewed Tolarian Community College. Part of that discussion was Pauper and why people play it. The Professor thought it wasn't as much price as it was the power of the cards and it being "Legacy Lite". I had never really thought of it that way but he had a point. I still think Pauper is where it is today because of the price point, but it made me wonder if I'm thinking about this all wrong. Why do you enjoy Pauper? Is it because you get to play with powerful cards that will probably never be in Standard again? Or is it because you can buy any deck for the price of one piece of your mana base for a Modern or Legacy deck? Maybe something else entirely? I started playing Pauper mostly because of the price and all of the brewing possibilities with such a large card pool. But I probably continue to play it because the cards are powerful and fun. If the cards weren't powerful or fun to play, then the time we invest in the format wouldn't be worth it even with the low price point. Interested to hear all of your thoughts
  7. Here's a Goblin list I'm working on. Sometimes explosive, sometimes not. https://www.mtgvault.com/magonista/decks/red-earthquake-goblins/
  8. Hey guys, oppose to posting for every deck tech, I figure I'd just add them to one long post, and update it as they go. So here it is: It Takes Two - Green Black Sacrifice/Token Deck BoGles - Green Black Bogles Deck - August 17th, 2018 Mono Red Tron - July 31st, 2018 Artificer Stompy - UR Aggro Artificer Deck - June 21st, 2018 Relentless Rats - Mono Black Relentless Rat Deck - May 7th, 2018 Hunger of the Hawk - UB Artifact Combo Deck - March 16th, 2018 Stupid Merfolk - UG Merfolk Tribal Deck - February 21st, 2018 Christmas Myracle - RG Myr Tribal Deck - December 22nd, 2017
  9. We had 11 players at The Eclectic Cave today. Top decks were Mono Blue Delver, Orzhov Pestilence, Orzhov Extort, Boggles, then there were also Burn, Red Deck Wins, Golgari Tortured Existence, Boggles, and two Affinity decks. Some of us talked about having some beer and Pauper at some point. For practice and conversation.
  10. Let's talk about Victim of Night. A two mana black removal spell is pretty sweet, right? Especially in Pauper it can be pretty powerful. The only downside is the creature can't be a Vampire, Werewolf or Zombie. Zombies I can maybe see there being a problem, with that big nasty Zombie Fish we all know and love. But other than that, when was the last time you played vs. a Vampire or Werewolf tribal Pauper deck? I'm seeing it pop up more and more in lists lately, it's a great Pauper card that doesn't get enough credit. I see lots of people splashing red for Lightning Bolt but with something like Victim of Night is great for mono black decks. Having that two mana removal spell without having to splash is great. Next time you're building your deck and look for red lands to splash for removal, remember this little card. You'll be happy you did. (probably)
  11. Any cards from Dominaria that you think might make a splash in Pauper?
  12. As usual, new Masters set means new powerful cards for Pauper, and this one is looking interesting! You can check out the full list here: https://scryfall.com/search?q=new%3Ararity+rarity%3Acommon+set%3Aa25 Some of the spicier new additions is Relentless Rats. It's problematic because pauper is so control-heavy, but on the flip side there are no good board sweepers in the format so if the deck can keep a couple rats in play they could get out of hand quickly. I think Court Hussar is pretty sweet too. Comparable to Sea Gate Oracle, a format staple, and it's pretty much strictly better in UW decks.
  13. Thought it would be easier to start a new thread for this deck list instead of adding to the original. The deck is built around discarding and drawing using Cathartic Reunion and Faithless looting to draw Exhume and either using it to cast Ulamog's Crusher or using Delve to cast Gurmag Angler, then smashing face. In the meantime I added removal and a little hand disruption to prevent my opponent from killing me. In the event I run into tokens or Elves, I have Nausea in the sideboard and more removal. This is my deck list going into our Pauper tournament this Saturday: Creatures Quantity Lands Gurmag Angler 4 Swamps 7 Ulamog's Crusher 4 Mountains 6 Insolent Neonate 3 Bloodfell Caves 4 Terramorphic Expanse 1 Evolving Wilds 1 Spells Quantity Cathartic Reunion 4 Exhume 4 Sideboard Lightning Bolt 4 Nausea 3 Faithless Looting 4 Raven's Crime 2 Terminate 4 Distress 2 Duress 4 Grasp of Darkness 2 Temur Battle Rage 2 Crush 2 Essence Harvest 2 Flame Slash 1 Raven's Crime 2 Temur Battle Rage 1 Evolving Wilds 1 Terramorphic Expanse 1
  14. Hey everyone! In today's deck tech video, we go over Cursed Ground, a Grixis pauper deck that goes for the throat with indirect damage and punishes your opponents early game casting by cursing their lands! And at just under $47/45 TIX, this is more towards the budget deck end! Come see what this deck can offer! And if you could do us a HUGE favor and share this video! We ill be doing another giveaway once we hit our next subscriber milestone! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oXyCiVGc4UY&t=40s
  15. Here is a video about stupid merfolk in pauper. Honestly this deck took forever to build, and I'm still not happy with it, but my frustration from making this deck turned into a pretty fun video to make. So enjoy if you want, if you don't, that's cool, because I hate merfolk too.
  16. Hey everyone! We're a day late, but this one is worth the wait! In this video, we go over Dragon Pants, a u/r pauper deck that has your creatures suiting up in dragon enchantments and swinging in for the win!
  17. Any cards from RIX catch your eye as being Pauper playable?
  18. I needed a new Pauper deck to play, and I feel most comfortable playing aggro decks. Looked over a few lists but I don't want to just put the same cards together that we've seen over and over. Instead I looked through my (many) boxes of cards and pulled some creatures out. Thought of it almost like a challenge to make something that will compete without using the cards everyone else uses. This is what I have so far, looking for feedback on this list. My goal is to come out fast and beat face with 1 CC creatures and pump spells. Later in the game I have a couple bigger bodies to finish with. I expect Spire Tracer to get some action and hopefully Scythe Tiger turn one. Blue is popular in my meta so I tossed in Lurking Crocodile, Kessig Recluse and Plummet in the side board for those match ups. I tossed around the idea of using green creatures from Kaladesh and use energy but I'm planning on going all in on energy and making another deck with those.
  19. So... There is some talk about pauper being brought to the big time. What do y'all thing about this? I'm digging that I might get to watch some pauper when they stream, but I'm not too keen on the idea of the price of pauper going up. Thoughts?
  20. Now that there will be Pauper side events at every GP in January 2018 championed by The Professor, Pauper is gaining popularity. With that popularity means the finance hounds are looking to make a few bucks off of it. Be careful with prices before you start purchasing cards in the next month or so and try to get them as low as you can. I'm hoping they realize Pauper isn't a format you can cash in on and not ruin what should be a cheap format. My fear is that people new to Pauper shy away because the cost of decks is going up and instead play other formats.
  21. What do you all recommend as a deck that is easy for players to pick up as a first pauper deck?
  22. I've been playing Familiars, mostly because they use Prosperous Pirates and I've always tried to figure out pirate decks in Pauper. I've also used the Familiars shell with allies to try life drain or mill decks. Not Tier 1, yet can be fun. This is how MTGO is most useful for me. Testing out random things and not having to switch decks, make someone playtest, etc. It would be nice to have more time to create a gauntlet and playtest in real life. I have a good number of decks, updating multiple decks can be a challenge. Hoping that Pauper fires at 1 at The Eclectic Cave today in Burque. Happy New Year Everyone!
