Chainer's Edict Discussion

The decks that play cheap spells like affinity, burn, tron, bogles, infect and mono decks are going to be a problem for sure, Dark Ritual Lotus Petal Peat Bog could be useful early game slowing there plans by unloading those discard spells from your hand quick, and you may want to include at least Diabolic Edict or Chainer's Edict or Geth's Verdict to deal with hexproof, also a good way to deal with delver of secrets, infect / weenies is Serrated Arrows, Nihil Spellbomb is good for those turn 2 or 3 exhume ulamog decks and flashback

I finally feel like I've find a pauper deck that feels really, REALLY, midrangey. Props to you. I will probably build it soon enough trust me.

Otherwise, I suggest you should put in 1-2, maybe 3 instant removal, like Unmake or something; in late game Castigate, Journey to Nowhere, Oblivion Ring, Chainer's Edict, Mesmeric Fiend and Mind Raker are all sorcery speed removal/discard effect, and they are really good, but like I said, late game in top-decking mode they are kinda meuh...

Otherwise, I'm repeating myself, but gosh I like your deck. I should also say this; it's not blue, nor green. Evermore, it's orzovh, a really underrepresented combination in pauper. Love it man.

Scythe Tiger is not bad, the only problem is that you can't target it with Temur Battle Rage and/or Mutagenic Growth. It dodges Lightning Bolt and Galvanic Blast but not Chainer's Edict.

Not bad, just things to consider. Seems like this deck has several things that want to target your own stuff to make it bigger. Shroud is not the best thing for that

Considering pauper's an MTGO-only format, using official legality is what everybody should do. Anyone deviating from this should explicitly put a "paper pauper" disclaimer in their deck... which this person didn't.

Are you going to tell us that Chainer's Edict shouldn't be listed in pauper decks, too?

Regardless, Viridian Longbow is insane, since you end up with a critical mass of elves and mana. It lets you ping your opponent to death and/or wipe their board, when you might not've otherwise been able to profitably attack through their blockers.

Chainer's Edict really shines in UB Gurmag Angler decks that fill their graveyard with Forbidden Alchemy and Probe. I tend to avoid decks that are overly dependent on their graveyard because of all the graveyard hate, which we can play around at instant speed.

sneakypenguin It's not banned; it doesn't meet the legality requirements. It was never printed at common in an online set.

This is the same reason Chainer's Edict IS legal despite never receiving a paper printing at common; it was digitally printed at common. Goblin Grenade isn't legal for the same reason Tormod's Crypt isn't legal. It's a bit confusing, but any printings not available on MTGO are irrelevant for legality. When it doubt, Scryfall is the best legality checker.

Even with your mill theme, Counterspell seems much better than Countermand. I'd also recommend playing removal of some sort, like Chainer's Edict, Disfigure, etc.
