Brain Maggot Discussion

it's something wrong with tappedout for some reason it checks everything as "ok in pauper" even if it's an uncommon.
a great way to check if cards are legal in pauper is with the gatherer program, i use it all the time now cause you can search for cards such as black enchantments which and with the gatherer you can check all the cards printing so you can see if the cards are legal in pauper or not.

I'm not sure how far these are out of your budget, but look into Tidehollow Sculler to replace Brain Maggot and some sort of sacrifice outlet like Viscera Seer. Reason being is that when your creature enters play (Faceless Butcher, Fiend Hunter, Tidehollow Sculler) their ETB trigger goes onto the stack, then you sacrifice them to something like Viscera Seer so that their second ability goes onto the stack ABOVE the first one. Their second trigger resolves and they return nothing because nothing was exiled, then the sacrifice trigger of Viscera Seer resolves and you scry 1, then the ETB trigger resolves to exile a creature card or a card from their hand permanently.
If you can find something that sacrifices enchantments (at instant speed) that you're willing to play such as Abzan Advantage or Auratog then you can do the same thing with Oblivion Ring which could replace Banishing Light.
Last suggestion, look into Wasteland Strangler. If you don't like the other cards and interactions I've mentioned, you can put the card that you exiled into your opponent's graveyard with some of the eldrazi from BFZ and Oath of Gatewatch so that even if your card leaves play, you're opponent won't get their card back.
Hopefully all of that made sense for you.

kamarupa - This is a very interesting card, but I'm worried I don't have enough forests in my deck to warrant it. Perhaps with a more fetch/shock heavy deck it could be a thing?
Carth - I see your point, but I'm trying to keep pace with at least some modern decks through Tidehollow Sculler. He also happens to be a zombie, which is why he is in there over something like Brain Maggot or Duress. Perhaps there are some other lock-down cards I'm forgetting?

The Thespian's Stage is a good idea, I thought about decreasing the number of creatures and increasing defenses against artifacts and enchantments. maybe replace Brain Maggot for Duress or Inquisition of Kozilek. For the sideboard cards like Lost Legacy.

Flooremoji Hi again! Thanks for the comment, though I don't think the upvote worked haha
Main combo. Since Zur can tutor for 1/2 of it, it's just a matter of drawing/tutoring the other half out and getting it haste with boots/greaves. turn 7-9 win is normal, which is optimal for my meta.
Midnight Guard goes well with the theme of the deck but can't actually do anything. If I had an aura that allowed him to tap for a creature he'd be in here, but as far as I know I don't in Esper colors :/
Thanks again! I'll be along to your deck later today/tomorrow!
