i can see Crop Rotation being very stong in this deck, you could even experiment with some jank lands with crop rotation and the sac theme Bojuka Bog for sb GY hate, Desert or even Sejiri Steppe might work. also the sb needs alot of work, the delver match up is pretty weak so id reccomend 3-4 Scattershot Archer or Gut Shot and also Dwarven Scorcher is pretty bad

Also, I doubt that this could be an option but I know an interesting card that can synergise well with this deck.

Momentary Blink

It can be used to trigger Torrential Gearhulk and Reflector Mage abilities.

This Momentary Blink can actually be a counterspell through Torrential Gearhulk, if you choose Unwind or Rewind, it actually untaps more lands than you've used. That's very helpful to cast a full powered Sphinx's Revelation at your opponent's endphase.

I'm new here so let me just relink you correctly my decklist :

3 Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir

1 Skeletal Vampire

1 Dralnu, Lich Lord

2 Dreadship Reef

1 Underground River

3 Dimir Aqueduct

9 Island

2 Swamp

3 Desert

3 Drowned Catacomb

4 Rune Snag

3 Spell Snare

4 Rewind

4 Think Twice

4 Mystical Teachings

1 Seize the Soul

3 Mana Leak

1 Cancel

4 Repeal

1 Cremate

1 Last Gasp

1 Sudden Death


3 Persecute

4 Deathmark

1 Slay

1 Seize the Soul

1 Trickbind

2 Moonlight Bargain

1 Spell Snare

1 Dreadship Reef

1 Darkblast

Things I added :


Hero's Downfall

Wrexial, the Risen Deep (not very strong but cool card)

Venser, Shaper Savant

Grubbernaut, this deck would not be legal in most pauper events, especially not MTGO ones. Desert, Circle of Flame, and Ashes to Ashes all have only common printings only in paper. Fortunately, this deck can be modified slightly as to not use those cards quite easily.

Good call.

Also, just a heads up, Desert is not Pauper legal, assuming you're using standard MTGO legality. Quicksand is a decent replacement, depending on your meta.

I modified the list to make better use of Crop Rotation. I've added Mortuary Mire, Haunted Fengraf, and Deserts to give us good targets for it. I did try Evolution Charm for a bit, but I decided that 2 mana was too pricey for what we want early game. However, I am keeping one to give us 3 sources of non-creature ramp and utility, cutting a Blightning.

Desert can be an effective way to trigger High Priest of Penance's ability. You can even put in Abyssal Gatekeeper since it's similar in nature and can easily be used with Desert.

Gattison my deck is paper, only. That said, if the question is regarding Desert, its still not legal and has been swapped, lol. Oopsie. We use mtgo rules, as do all paper pauper places.

Nice deck! Radiant Fountain is a tough fit with so much colored mana in the deck; I'd probably sub in some budget dual lands like Dismal Backwater. 4x Desert is a lot, too; maybe a 1x or 2x?

I'd also go with a fourth Fraying Sanity. The effects stack, and they're just so good.

Vapor Snag seems better than Unsummon since you'll sometimes win with Thing in the Ice  Flip by damage, too.
