Shimmering Glasskite Discussion

Von.Banamaor on UB Mana tax

8 months ago

I am building my own pauper taxing deck based on an old, old deck I once played with using Errant Minion and Winter Orb. I thought I'd see what I could do with a pauper variant. Here is a link to my deck: A Tax to Grind

To start off, I really like what you have going here.

A few suggestions...

Right off, I think you should consider Errant Minion for reasons I don't think I need to explain. Perhaps in place of Soul Barrier?

Most cards in pauper are very cheap and lots of decks are very thin on mana production as a result, so playing Rhystic Study can be a huge burden. Playing more than one, is almost unfair. Plus, you should really have some card drawing ability.

Here are some other ways to consider tapping creatures: Flood, Rhystic Deluge, Norritt & Rathi Trapper.

Shimmering Glasskite might be an interesting creature to consider as well. It'll be hard for your opponent to cast two creature-hate spells in a turn.

You might want to consider Fade Away for the sideboard if too many creatures are hitting the table.

And one last note, if you were to splash green, Kruphix's Insight and Aura Gnarlid would be brutal.
