This deck is fabulous. I run a banding deck in pauper EDH (any uncommon can be your commander, but all of the 99 must be common) and its commander Loyal Unicorn might be handy here!

Lt. Unicorn, Commander

I think a deck like this needs all 4 of these in it

These would make it really easy to keep attacking with your cmdr and keep the pressure on

And with the 3 of the 4 I mentioned you can use red damage based board wipes, like Starstorm and Faultline and others to wipe the board and keep yours.

cards with Lieutenant should be banned. Loyal Unicorn is busted.

Okey, cool! Then I would firstly recommend to take away four lands since (mathematically) you only need about 36 lands to have a good enough chance to draw them without drawing too many at any given time (also depends on how you shuffle of course ;) ). Then I would also again recommend to take a look at my deck when it comes to which lands you should play to up those a notch since there are a lot of lands that aren't very useful (especially the double-lands with no other effects) in the precon.

Other cards I genereally recommend to take out other than the lands:

Crystal Ball

Seer's Lantern

Adarkar Valkyrie

Conundrum Sphinx

Duskmantle Seer

Enigma Sphinx

Geode Golem

Jeskai Infiltrator

Loyal Subordinate

Loyal Unicorn

Magus of the Balance

Ninja of the Deep Hours

Serra Avatar

Silent-Blade Oni

Sower of Discord

Army of the Damned

Skull Storm



So these are cards that I don't feel are good enough for the deck idea (casual/budget or not) or simply lack theme-quality. Feel free to ask if you need help replacing these cards with the cards you have or find cards that could fit the deck! :)

Definitely check the Pauper EDH Deck Compendium, it has some useful links!

There are also some alternate commanders like Bastion Protector and Loyal Unicorn that you could decide on!

I always have to recomend Armillary Sphere , but your deck might not need it!

However, your deck does contain some cards that were never printed at uncommon that arn't your commander, so I would recomend using TO's legallity feature.

Good luck with your deck!

P.S. As far as power levels go, mono-white probably isn't the strongest, but it dosen't matter unless your playgroup is pull on cPDH :)

High Alert is a redundant new addition to this deck to allow you to have more redundancy.

Also Sight of the Scalelords is pretty good. It doesn't combo well with Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive , but it does give most of your team vigilance. I would imagine that blocking isn't really the issue for you since you will likely have more creatures in play than most other players so this might be better than Brave the Sands . Other cards for vigilance Always Watching and Loyal Unicorn

Love the Slagwurm Armor what are your thoughts on Magebane Armor ?
