I think this is a really original concept for a Pauper resource denial deck. The inclusion of Fade Away I especially like with this kind of setup. That being said, I think there are a few basic things you can do, a few bigger things you can do, and some sideboard shenanigans you can get into to make this deck truly primo.

First, there are a few basic card subs I would make. First off, you can straight up cut Street Wraith for Gitaxian Probe , it just fits better in this deck and does the same thing but strictly better. The other main cards I would sub would be to add in Daze for Force Spike . I was skeptical of Daze 's power over Force Spike at first, but I was converted very soon.

That's it for basic changes, but here are some important structural changes. Firstly, the main problem I see here is keeping your hand full and repeatedly denying resources. I have no idea how competitive your local meta is, but all I can say is that higher-level Pauper is 100% Legacy-Lite, meaning it plays a lot like Legacy. This means lands don't matter that much to the average deck. Many decks are perfectly fine with you keeping them at 3 lands, so the trick is going to be denying multiple lands per turn rather than just playing 1 or 2 bounce spells at best.

So how do we get repeatable effects? Well Capsize is pretty good but also pretty expensive. One way we can do this is to play Snow-Covered Island s and Rimewind Taskmage . You can also add in the artifact lands (and maybe Tumble Magnet ?) to use Vedalken Certarch .

These are really the only halfway decent repeatable land denial cards in this format. Thus card draw is going to be key to drawing some of the one-time denial spells. Without the Pauper fetches (because this is a mono color deck) Preordain is probably your best bet. On top of this, you may want to run Gush to keep your hand full. Trading cards for lands that can just be replayed is not a very sustainable model in the long term, so these powerful draw spells can help you get there.

Finally, as far as finishers go you can run AEthersnipe as just a big boy that gets a blocker out of the way or Stormbound Geist as a flyer that's hard to put down. Canal Courier is also a big body that will net you a bunch of card draw, which will be useful to grind out your opponents.

Finally, in the sideboard, I would run Hydroblast to destroy red decks, Aura Flux to destroy Bogles, and maybe some Foil s to protect your cards from tricky tempo and control decks.

Anyway, I really like this deck, keep working at it!

Vedalken Certarch But you probs wont have the craft for it.

Rimewind Taskmage But 4 snow may be late to get.

Stonybrook Angler But paying 2 to tap a critter isnt really playable.

Tyrannosaurus_Maximus You welcome!

I still digging more and more cards for myself, so found new every week.For example, i think that Vanishing can be better then Diplomatic Immunity because its

  1. Saves your creature not only from point removal, but from mass destruction such as Innocent Blood
  2. Can totally disable opponents general. Its better then just kill him, because they cant cast it from command zone again.I added Vanishing in my deck Disciple of Deceit - Combos PDH just days ago. I would be glad if you look and leave comment to me too.

I mention some cards, that can be fine for stax, but not sure if fit your deck.

Sorry, I looked at this list early in the morning and wasnt paying attention but you could pretty much keep your list if you change the basics and swap Rimewind Taskmage for Fatestitcher

Overall, I really like your theme and I've been wanting to build a snow themed deck for a while. You've got some great ideas going but there are a couple of small problems as well.

However, your #7, Rimewind Cryomancer + Cover of Winter wont work. The Cryomancer can counter an activated ability. However, cumulative upkeep is a trigger. Keep the Cromancer, she's too good against too many other things. You will have the same problems with the other cumulative upkeep cards as well. If you want to keep the cumulative upkeep creatures, look at Mistmeadow Witch which would allow you to flicker them and reset the upkeep counters.

Your #9, Instead of using Rimewind Taskmage or Squall Drifter to tap your own creature, why not look at Springleaf Drum and Holdout Settlement to accomplish the same goal. Also, the Drum and Settlement can use any creature with summoning sickness to make mana. Another way to go would be to look at something like Aura of Dominion or Viridian Longbow to tap the Centaur Omenreader for an effect instead.

Your #13, the Gelid Shackles is too weak. The table politics aren't strong enough of a tactic to work in your favor.

Your #14, You are correct about Mimic Vat being able to copy a land that died as a creature. But you also have to remember that the land token created by Mimic Vat will get exiled at the next end step.

Your #15, Welcome to the game! One piece of advice I always like to give new players for evaluating a card is this: You have a fixed number of sleeves for that deck. if you draw that card in the middle of a game, will that card make a difference or will you be disappointed drawing that card? If you don't feel that a specific card helps more often than you feel disappointed drawing it, replace that card.

I think the Sakura-Tribe Scout is a bit weak in this deck since you aren't really drawing that many additional cards per turn. This is one of those cards that is nice in the early game, but drawing it mid or late game, it's just a blocker and not very useful.

CricketYT on Need Help Cutting Azami!

I need some help getting my Azami deck, wmm-needs-help-cutting down to 100 cards. I'm also debating whether or not its worth changing up the deck in a few specific ways. For example, is it a good idea to go the snow-land route w Heidar, Rimewind Master, Scrying Sheets and Rimewind Taskmage? Or should I try to play with the option of winning by combat damage using things like Master of Waves, Delver of Secrets  Flip, Obelisk of Urd, Brass Herald, and Adaptive Automaton? And one small thing, I would really like to use the Memory Lapse, Remand, Unsubstantiate, and Delay package for more tempo but I don't have room. Thanks in advance, all help is appreciated.
