I do not feel that the black splash for BCV or costly plunder is worth it. Three colors is hard in pauper and you have to really justify it. Ruining the manabase of a decent Boros deck is not really worth it. If you add Kuldotha Rebirth and 3 more artifacts like Porcelain Legionnaire or other cards like Battle Screech or Rally the Peasants, you will have a much more consistent deck.

And the comparson to ancestral is not really good. Sure, you can spend 2 cards and 4 mana to draw three cards, but it is not getting you far ahead, nor does it have mad recursion possibilities. And the comparison between rhino and BCV - one more mana, no trample, no additional toughness and no requirement for metalcraft really make the cards too incomparable.

you could try Cenn's Enlistment. Kind of like Gather the Townsfolk, but double the price, and you get to cast it multiple times, like Battle Screech

Firstly, I love the approach of the deck. Dovescape makes for the ultimate lock-down, so let's focus on that as your win-con and revolve the deck around it.

Don't be afraid to include non-creature spells because of this, remember, that your non-creature spells are just going to turn into doves late-game anyways; use this to your advantage.

I agree with most of musicalsocks's suggestions, however:


Token Support

Strict Replacement

You can afford to be running 36-38 lands, so cut back there.Swap Azorius Cluestone, Selesnya Cluestone, and Simic Cluestone for Commander's Sphere, Pillar of Origins, and Sol Ring?

Additionally, run Path of Ancestry instead of Ancient Ziggurat.

Austin_Smith_of_Cards, Battle Screech is a great token generator, but I am also keeping this deck Modern legal too.

Battle Screech is Pauper legal thanks to Vintage Masters, and is a pretty powerful token generator. Would swap in for Sandsteppe Outcast.

Mutagenic Growth & Apostle's Blessing could help you get your life down to 5 quicker, if you actually want to go that route. =D

I love +1/+1 counters decks, and I've used a lot of these cards before, so it's almost like looking down memory lane here, lol.

The only thing I really want to say here is that some Flashback in the deck would be nice. something like Thrill of the Hunt or Travel Preparations would be cool, but maybe also Acorn Harvest, Battle Screech, Folk Medicine, Gaze of Justice, Sylvan Might, etc. etc. You could probably remove 2 and 2 of Scatter the Seeds and Gather the Townsfolk to make room if you wanted (or just drop Scatter altogether).

what needs improving? Speed? Protection against removal?

As a person who runs paper pauper tournaments monthly, I can tel you it is a mess to establish a ban list for paper pauper. We did it through trial and error - use the online banlist and add Goblin Grenade, High Tide to it.

Battle Screech is too awesome not to include in the format.
