mitomeg on Tips for powering up my ...

1 week ago

Hi guys, i'm an old school MtG player who got on MTGO for the first time 4 days ago. I've only played Mono Black in a casual format until now, so i'm not an expert.

I've chosen to play the Pauer format on MTGO and i've started with a UB Teachings... this is my Decklist:

LANDS: 1x Bojuka Bog 3x Dimir Aqueduct 4x Dismal Backwater 7x Island 1x Mortuary Mire 2x Radiant Fountain 4x Swamp

INSTANT: 1x Dispel 1x Disfigure 1x Tragic Slip 4x Counterspell 1x Deprive 2x Essence Scatter 1x Doom Blade 1x Diabolic Edict 3x Think Twice 1x Soul Manipulation 3x Forbidden Alchemy 1x Mystical Teachings

SORCERY: 1x Preordain 2x Duress 1x Wretched Banquet 3x Chainer's Edict 1x Shrivel 3x Rakshasa's Secret 1x Deep Analysis

CREATURES: 2x Sea Gate Oracle 1x Mulldrifter 3x Gurmag Angler

SIDEBOARD: 1x Chainer's Edict 1x Crypt Incursion 1x Dispel 1x Doom Blade 2x Duress 1x Mulldrifter 2x Negate 1x Nihil Spellbomb 1x Sea Gate Oracle 2x Shrivel 1x Stormbound Geist 1x Echoing Decay

I've got more losses than wins (probably mostly due to the fact the i'm new to this type of deck) but i'm wondering if you guys have some tips for maximize my chances to win consedering the actual meta in pauper.

I'm not playing in tournaments right now.

I'VE GOT A BUDGET OF 5 TIX TO SPEND FOR THE POWER UPS!

Thanks in advice!!

No worries!! I understand the need to fit a budget very well, I started playing with piles of penny commons before a very generous friend of mine donated their collection to me. Pauper is a great format, and if I can help provide any commons to a new-ish player, I'd be more than pleased. For a tight budget, Opt is still quite good, and Chainer's Edict can be replaced with Diabolic Edict .

Dark Impostor is another removal spell on a stick that exiles the creature it targeted as well as gains its activated abilites, all for low CMC and low $. Same goes for Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief but she powers herself up for a quicker kill. Guul Draz Assassin and Big Game Hunter also fit into this category.

For single target kill spells: Sever the Bloodline is a bit overcosted for most targets but is a pretty good token killer, Price of Fame is cheap enough if targeting opposing commanders and lets you dig through your library looking for answers. Tragic Slip is low CMC and can be a way around indestructible.

For mass removal, Mutilate and Black Sun's Zenith are inexpensive options. Nevinyrral's Disk can wipe the board of both artifacts and enchantments which black flat out has no real way to directly deal with.

But one of black's specialties is getting opponents to sac their owns permanents, especially creatures: Gatekeeper of Malakir , Chainer's Edict , Geth's Verdict , Plaguecrafter , Slum Reaper , Fleshbag Marauder , Diabolic Edict

For some additional artifact ramp: Charcoal Diamond , Mind Stone , Worn Powerstone , Hedron Archive Unstable Obelisk with the Obelisk doubling as 'hit anything' removal and the Stone and Archive being some card draw as well.

...which leads into more card draw: Phyrexian Arena for steady card draw, Necrologia for that rush of cards.

For mono black Cabal Stronghold is a cheap option to gain extra mana late game.

I didn't price check everything listed above but nothing there should be too outrageously priced.

I think you have enough black sources to support Cower in Fear or Crypt Rats . They help a lot against elves, while Chainer's Edict , Diabolic Edict , or Geth's Verdict will give you some interaction with bogles.

The absolute best match for Delver I've seen in Pauper is a mono-black suicide deck based on Pestilence and Dark Ritual. Use Duress to clear out early counters and Diabolic Edict to keep things even until you can kill with "swamps count" spells.
