Sinkhole Discussion

HerbalTeabag on Mono Black Land Destruction

4 days ago

unfortunately paper pauper currently uses the MTGO card pool and although Sinkhole was printed at common in paper magic, it was never online so it's not pauper legal at this current time :(

Rishadan Port is a land that has an effect that costs to tax them of their lands at instant speed. You draw it and it can be used right away or sit there and used whenever necessary. That's why it's still a viable card. Sinkhole is a sorcery spell that only is effective early game and against certain decks. It's good against Burn and Show and Tell. Wasteland and Smallpox are enough for the current state of the meta now. The format is "go wide" with little mana resources. Also, the only deck that plays Rishadan Port now is Death and Taxes. Lands dropped it in favor of Ghost Quarter and only because it works out better for them and it's searchable with Crop Rotation. Pox is an anti meta deck, so if your meta is filled with decks that run a shit ton of basics or Sneak and Show then I can see why you're running it. Otherwise, Pox decks need to run a little more critter destruction now. I replaced 2 copies of Sinkhole with Fatal Push and 1 copy with Toxic Deluge.

MohenjoDaro on Manna down!

Sinkhole might work well. If you had blue, I'd suggest Boomerang but 3 color decks aren't the best. Seismic Spike is also a lower cmc card (since it adds mana back to your mana pool).

One or two Dwarven Driller might work for damage or land hate.

If you have lands you don't need, Army Ants or Raze can work.

Currently the land hate seems a bit too situational for what deck you're going against (Eg. Active Volcano and Boil). I would add more fast defense so you have time to get to the land hate.

StonedJesus on Death and Taxes...ish

If you want the game to go slower, try something like Sinkhole, Hymn to Tourach, or Dash Hopes. The first two were commons at one point. Very overpowered.

Gattison, yea when you start thinking about the down and upshifting of various cards it can make you crazy. I guess it makes sense that Sinkhole is not a common, at least not online. Dunno how i feel about Hymn to Tourach, tho. I mean i would run both in mbc.

ghostfire86 on Pox Deck

Check out my Pox deck for some ideas: Ring Around the Rosey

Innocent Blood or Fatal Push are great options. Fatal push is more effective if you add some fetch lands.

Liliana of the Veil is needed as a 3-4 of. Poxshould be a 0-1 of depending on player and play style.

Sinkhole and Wasteland are staples for this deck and a must.

If you like using Nether Spirit then add in Contamination andEntomb.

Duress is...underwhelming. Switch to Inquisition of Kozilek or Thoughtseize.

Gattison on Paper Pauper vs Pauper Online

3 weeks ago

There are 407 paper-only commons (not on MTGO). There are 125 online-only commons (not in paper).

The Professor, at Tolarian Community College "officially" supports expanding the banlist for paper pauper to include Merchant Scroll, High Tide, Goblin Grenade, Hymn to Tourach and of course, Sinkhole. In addition to the ten cards banned on MTGO pauper.

I'll be posting an article on this topic in a couple weeks.

Also, pauper side events were held at GP Santa Clara, Houston, London and Indy. So there were actually four legit pauper events in January. We're getting closer!

As for a solution to your problems, I recommend going by the If there are any black (meaning common) set symbols on the card's page, then you can use it in paper. (Even if the card is only available as a common online. If Wizards said it was a common then it was a common, meaning pauper-legal, imho.) I find that easiest to go by.

And as for finding paper pauper players, I suggest spreading the word at your LGS. Maybe make a sign up sheet until you get about 8 people total who are interested in playing. Most LGSs will host any event players want if there are enough of them willing to pay the entry fee.

Good luck. Live long and Pauper!

I feel the same way about pauper! =P =D

BTW, I play paper pauper.

I personally find the online/paper card pool discrepancy a really interesting topic. Personally, I feel that paper players should:

  • follow the MTGO banlist
  • be allowed to use the 407 common cards that are paper-only
  • be also allowed to use the 125 common cards that are online-only
  • be allowed to decide for themselves if they follow the Professor's suggested banlist additions (Sinkhole, Goblin Grenade, Hymn to Tourach, High Tide & Merchant Scroll)

Also, I'm wondering if off-color cards, like Dash Hopes, will ever really take off, because they can help round-out weaknesses that particular color/color-combos have.
