the blue advantage was implied, im just saying that they are somewhat comparable, as good shell commanders for elfball. also marwyn has some good synergy cards that people may be looking over by looking at the elf part too much. some of the cards im about to list are sub optimal if you run too many, but show that she can generate decent value for pretty cheap: Aspect of Hydra, Aspect of Wolf, Berserk, Ivy Seer, Become Immense, Scent of Ivy, Strength in Numbers, Timberwatch Elf, War Dance, Wirewood Pride. now you shouldnt run too many of these because they are only one shot effects, but some of them add enough power to make up for that by making occasional big bursts of mana, and she is another umbral mantle/ parun abuser. i expect that her wins will be along the lines of huge pump spell> dorks> revelation> more dorks> craterhoof. i can easily see this being viable as tier 3. im gonna be brewing her soon anyway in hopes shes atleast respected as tier 3, she will be a good break from mairsil.

+2 Twin Bolt, +2 Perilous Myr, +2 Magma Spray

-2 Harvest Pyre, -2 Tremble -2 Ichor Wellspring (too slow to waste turn 2)

I often side in 2 Red Elemental Blasts for a BorderPost and a Tremble. Even 4, if I am feeling super salty. The trick here is to not let them make a board and get rid of all Timberwatch Elfs. Land destruction is hard in this match-up because most of their creatures produce mana. Surviving their initial is key.

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

We play the game
We're walkin' the planes
Got my playmat, it's true
Kitchen table with you

Delver of Secrets  Flip
Put my die to 20
The Professor suggests
Use Scryfall because

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

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)

rocksteady on Tier 1 Pauper Elvish Insanity

7 months ago

nagstarp, when I originally built this deck I did use Ulamog's Crusher but have replaced it with Eldrazi Devastator because it has trample. The main goal here is to use Timberwatch Elf's ability on the Devastator to start getting insane amounts of damage through, and having trample is one of the bigger parts of that strategy.

Grubbernaut on Budget Pauper Infect

Timberwatch Elf is a great card, but it's usually only going to give +2/+2, and 3cmc is a lot for infect to get out. It won't (usually) put a Glistener Elf out of bolt range, and almost never out of Flame Slash territory. I love Seal of Strength because it stays on the field and frees up mana later. With infect, you really want to win super duper fast, and +2/+2 for 3cmc just doesn't seem up to snuff, IMO.

Predator's Strike is nice because of the trample. In pauper, there's a ton of little dudes you have to bowl over. However, if Giant Growth is not in the main, what situation would cause you to side it in? It seems like a slot that could be used for hosers like Nature's Claim.

Also: 21 lands is probably a lot. I have a build that runs 14 forests and 4 Land Grant, because we REALLY need pump spells, and even if your creatures get removed, lands are a dead draw after 2-4 are on the field.

One final card you def want is Gitaxian Probe. Free cantrip and it tells you if it's safe to go for the kill!

Thanks for the up vote and recommendations! I'm new to the Pauper format. I feel Burn is this deck's worst matchup possibly due to it's ability to kill the creatures in response to my pump spells. Depends on the draw, I suppose. I like Timberwatch Elf because it pumps a creature for no extra mana and that can be very important with all the elves (plus Glistener Elf) in the sideboard. Why would you rather lose Giant Growth over Predator's Strike? Also, do you know if there are any fog effects that are for noncombat?

Grubbernaut on Budget Pauper Infect

Scattershot Archer is a great hoser for Delver. I'd wedge some into the SB, and probably cut the fogs

I'd also lose Giant Growth and Timberwatch Elf. 4x Nature's Claim is fantastic since life doesn't matter for infect
