Hey, ThatHungryGuy.

Indeed game 1 is almost certainly a win for Dredge, then it's all about sideboards, and I would never keep a hand without Leyline of the Void.

Among the decks that play around with graveyards, Manaless Dredge has the least possible responses for Leyline of the Void. As of Reanimator decks, they usually try to run Echoing Truth or Chain of Vapor, which are really effective since I can't always hard cast Leyline again and they can sneak in some important creatures like Griselbrand.

But then I could make use of other cards from my sideboard (by the way, I would have a lot of free slots in the mainborad since I wouldn't need Sinkholes and such), like Trinisphere, which would hopefully hold the opponent's responses in his hand until I can make sure to discard them.

Thanks for your reply.

Sweet list! But sadly, Sinkhole is not pauper legal.

Cheers!

Sinkhole and/or Dash Hopes could help slow your opponent down. Ruthless Invasion could be a finisher.

Overall, nice deck

Rakdos the Defiler, who shuts down opponents on the sneaked drop Kaalia gives him while negating his initial effect that one turn. Basically a second Master of Cruelties.

Kothophed, Soul Hoarder is a decent shell that gains you draws on the cheap. Crucible of Worlds, Sinkhole, and Ghost Quarter is a nice add on to this if you go land destruction later. If you added him Id get rid of Unburial Rites instead because he would trigger off of Living Death for each creature they sacrificed.

Magus of the Moat is just money for a Kaalia deck.

Bastion Protector is a nice add on for protection and commander damage buff that most dont consider for Kaalia. Death by commander damage using Kaalia? Is tha even a thing? Yep.

Demon of Wailing Agonies is lovely for forcing sacs.

Archfiend of Depravity is solid.

Five-Color Rain (Pop)

The following is a parody of "Rock That Body," by the Black Eyed Peas.


I wanna elf right now
I wa--I wanna elf right now
I wa--I wanna elf right now
Now, now, elf right now.
I wa--I wanna elf right now
I wa--I wanna elf right now
I wa--I wanna elf right nooowww

I want more lands, I want more lands and more life
I wanna drop, I wanna drop a body
I wanna swing, I wanna swing friggin' wide
Up in ya face and then drop another body.

Block that body
Come on, come on, block that body (Block that body)
Block that body
Come on, come on, block--that--body
(repeat)

Look at all these--creatures I got
Scryin' land to--the bottom from top
Synergize with just one drops
Mono- got the board on lock. (Board on lock)
Swing and watch--you'd have to have like a million blockers
Faces be boomin'--and lifegain lots
It's a good game if you scoop or not
Elves are like rabbits they just don't stop. (Porkin' lots)

When you swingin' at elves just stop
Think, do you have enough to block
'Cause elves be droppin' around the clock
Go to combat and then tap them all.
If you swing back I cast a Fog
Rancor on Elvish Vanguard
No one boardwipes elves for long! (Elves are bomb!)

Androgynous man-ladies
Elves are androgynous man-ladies
Elves are androgynous man-ladies
Elves are all androgynous man-ladies

Yeah, they could be big-butts
1/2s, they got junk in trunks
They could be vanilla types
Chumps with no abilities.
Short stacks, elf tribal
I just like to synergize
Triggers outta sight
Trigger--triggers outta sight.

She don't mulligan
Or miss land-drops
And in her mainboard
She got eight dorks.
She like trample, she love tokens
Timberwatch Elf, the shit is broken
She like counters, and the mid-range
She like the late-game, and f***in' lifegain.

Don't get mad at me, elves are just stupid
Don't get mad at me... (bro, bro, bro, bro)

I want more lands, I want more lands and more life
I wanna drop, I wanna drop a body
I wanna swing, I wanna swing friggin' wide
Up in ya face and then drop another body.

(and so on...)

The following is a parody of "Papa Don't Preach," by Madonna.

Pauper, is something I know I can playset
And I almost always play budget
But you should know by now
I'm not a Timmy
I started brewing with mono-
Then I splashed for the Deacon Vile
I may be Orzhov now
But I know what I'm playin'

The tribe you never heard about
Until Pauper came around
This was a great playtest
Now let's play for ante (please)


Pauper don't preach, cast a Suture Priest
Pauper don't preach, Mana Tithe is weak
I made up my mind, I'm tapping my cleric (mmm)
I'm gonna' tap my cleric (mmmmm)

He or she's going to swing at me
We both have a decent battlefield
Maybe they'll be alright
Maybe I'll sacrifice

But my opponent won't give it up
Playing too many clerics for you to touch
What you need right now is some Harsh Sustenance (for )


Pauper don't preach, cast a Suture Priest
Pauper don't preach, Blessing's almost free
I made up my mind, I'm tapping my cleric (uh)
I'm gonna' tap my cleric (ooh, oh)

Johnny, Johnny if you could only see
Just how much I can do with cleric synergy
You'd give up your goblins right now
'Cause clerics are fun, clerics are fun (so please)


Pauper don't preach, cast a Suture Priest
Pauper don't preach, Charming Misery
I made up my mind, I'm swingin' with clerics (uh)
I'm gonna' swing out, dammit (ooh, oh)

Pauper don't preach, cast a Suture Priest
Pauper don't preach, Mana Tithe is weak

Pauper don't preach, ooh
Pauper don't preach, I'm gonna cast a cleric (ooh)
Pauper don't preach, don't you stop playing me, Timmy
Pauper don't preach, I know I'm winning with clerics

_The following is a parody of "Papparazi," by Lady Gaga

We play the game
We're walkin' the planes
Got my playmat, it's true
Kitchen table with you
It's so magical
Professional or casual

Backpacks and sleeves
Delver of Secrets  Flip
Put my die to 20
The Professor suggests
Use Scryfall because
Gatherer is not the best
('Cause you know that, Baby, I)

I'm the biggest Tim
Goblin Grenade until you stop me
Paper, pauper, W.o.t.C.
Banlists are for online only
So you know I'll play
Paper, pauper, W.o.t.C.
I promise I'll play nice
Well, at least unless you unify
MTGO format
With all of the printed product
Paper, pauper, W.o.t.C.

I'll be your foe
Then friend you on TO
Sinkholes and Fireballs
Sing a Hymn to Tourach
In between the games
Soda, candy and my vape

Mono- burn
Mono- Elves of course
Mono- control
Mono- whatever, Mono- weenies
Five-color Affinity
('Cause you know that, Baby, I)

I got basic lands
Invigorate until you stop me
Paper, pauper, W.o.t.C.
Banlists are for online only
So you know I'll play
Paper, pauper, W.o.t.C.
I got all this power that I don't
Know to handle responsibly, so
I make a broken deck
I chose from all the printed product
Paper, pauper, W.o.t.C.

That's good
(We're playin' at a side-event)
Cast, cast
(Oops, Empty the Warrens)
Don't stop
(For anyone)
We're common, but we still have fun!

I'm Magic's biggest fan
But I will Rally until you stop me
Paper, pauper, W.o.t.C.
Banlists are for online only
So you know I'll play
Paper, pauper, W.o.t.C.
I promise I'll play nice
If you would only help us all play right
Maybe you'll make paper
Helping us to unite online
and Paper, pauper, W.o.t.C.

Flight of the Planeswalker

The following is a parody of "Ghostbusters," by Ray Parker Jr.

If there's something jank, at your LGS
Who ya' gonna cast? Ghostbuster!
If they're playin' dredge, or aristocrat decks
Who ya' gonna cast? Ghostbuster!

I ain't afraid to play ghosts
I ain't afraid to play ghosts

If all your cards, are leavin' your graveyard
Who ya' gonna blame? Ghostbuster!
Eldrazi Monument, Promise & Sun Titan
Goin' infinite! Ghostbuster!

I ain't afraid to play ghosts
I ain't afraid to play ghosts

Who ya' gonna cast? Ghostbuster!

On the play or draw, by turn three or four
Just cast, Ghostbuster!

I ain't afraid to play ghosts
(I kinda' like this girl)
I ain't afraid to play ghosts
(Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)

Who ya' gonna cast? Ghostbuster!

If you've got a game, at a, kitchen table
Then you better play, Ghostbuster!

(Let me tell you something, 1/1 Spirits make me feel good!)

I ain't afraid to play ghosts
I ain't afraid to play ghosts

Don't run outta cards, oh no! Ghostbuster!
When it comes to control, or decks that mess wit' my tempo
I wish you'd just leave alone, Ghostbuster!

Who ya' gonna cast? Ghostbuster! (x16)

(Go-o)
Now I cast a minotaur
And then I cast another
Mimics & bovines

(Dra-aw)
It's midnight in Zulaport
NEHEB's a worthy warrior
Mimics & bovines
Every Friday night

(Tap) (Throne of the God-Pharaoh)
My creatures are swingin' (Throne of the God-Pharaoh)
Triggerin' everything (Throne of the God-Pharaoh)
It's just a Standard beating (Throne of the God-Pharaoh)
Mimics & bovines (Throne of the God-Pharaoh)
Every Friday night

Mimics & bovines, every Friday night (x6)

@Grubbernaut Different paper pauper tournaments have different legalities, some allow Sinkhole and Hymn to Tourach, that's why they're in the maybeboard.

Sinkhole is not pauper legal, just a heads up my dude.

Gidgetimer on Spellskite and Hexproof

3 months ago

Spellskite must be a legal target for the spell or ability when the redirection resolves to be able to redirect it. This means that things that can not target it such as Sinkhole, anything when it has shroud, or opponent's spells and abilities when it has hexproof can not be redirected.

If Spellskite gains shroud or hexproof after the redirection resolves or becomes an invalid target in some other way then the spell will have already been redirected but will have no effect on either the original target or Spellskite. Possible ways for this to happen include but are not limited to:

Instant speed equipping of shroud or hexproof equipment via Leonin Shikari or some other means.

Instants that give shroud or hexproof (Mage's Guile, Ranger's Guile, etc).

Destruction of either Life and Limb or Conspiracy naming saprolings if both are out and you redirected a land destruction spell/ability (extreme corner case I know, but possible).

Flickering, bouncing, sacrificing, or otherwise removing Spellskite.

Giving Spellskite protection from the spell via Stave Off or some other means.
