@Felixlives: Makes sense! I'm definitely going to put 4x Gitaxian Probe in then, especially with the recent banning for Modern which means they will go down in price for us Pauper players.

@Burl: Now I'm seeing it... Haha I really like your suggestions, so it will be -8 Forest, +4 Lotus Petal, +2 Tranquil Thicket, -2 Predator's Strike, and +4 Gitaxian Probe. In my playtesting I have noticed that although Llanowar Augur is great bang for buck, it is too predictable, and Rot Wolf is an excellent value play but is too slow unfortunately. Gut Shot is underwhelming in Infect, but I do agree with Sandstorm, so I'll put two in. For Tormod's Crypt, you make a good point so I'll put in Relic of Progenitus as well. Thank you so much for all the great suggestions!

@lonker: Thank you for clarifying, yes I totally agree with this and will update accordingly. Thank you for the great suggestions!

Few suggestions: Swap Gavony Township for Seraph Sanctuary, In my experience you don't usually have leftover mana to use townships ability.

Lonely Sandbar and Tranquil Thicket for something like Thornwood Falls, Sejiri Refuge or Temple of Plenty. If a land is going to come into the battlefield tapped at least have it do something like you gain one life or scry a card. Or get a double land like Simic Growth Chamber and pair it with a basic land or Radiant Fountain.

Pearl Medallion is always a help since most angels are white, also helps your instants and everything else.

Here's an updated version of my deck you commented on before :)

  • Won vs. Affinity x3
  • Won vs. Mirror
  • Lost vs. Turbo Fog
  • Lost vs. Mirror

  • First three games were against Affinity. Infect is just too fast.
  • Both mirrors vs. Same guy. Crushed him first game.
  • Over an hour just to play the first game. I conceded the match. I literally pressed "OK" repeatedly for an hour. I was over it.
  • Misplayed both matches. Was the last game I could play so I rushed it and Fuct up. Both times I had it in my hand I was just careless. Never half ass any two things. Always whole ass one thing.

On MTGO I do not yet have Lotus Petal, Gitaxian Probe, or Land Grant. Without those cards the deck is $10. I currently filled out Groundswell and Mutagenic Growth, and am running 14 Forest plus the Tranquil Thicket and Khalni Garden.

eddyeddy12: Thank you for the kind words! It runs consistently for having limited lands. Land Grant and Lotus Petal, count as mana sources in this deck, totaling 16 sources of mana. With Tranquil Thicket, Gitaxian Probe and under the correct conditions, at times even Rot Wolf; there is enough card draw to ensure a mana source. The CMC of this deck is only 1.31, and contains many "free" cost cards.

Because of these factors, this deck consistently runs on only 8 lands.

Nimble Mongoose is a great body for strategies such as Delirium.

Ash Barrens may be more useful in Pauper than Evolving Wilds to enable Delirium. The jury's still out, but it wouldn't hurt to test. Otherwise, cycling lands I believe are a must in graveyard-based Pauper decks (Barren Moor, Tranquil Thicket).

Borderland Explorer has good power and a relevant effect.

Chromatic Star is likely better than Terrarion.

Deepcavern Imp is a good flying curve-topper.

You will defo need more trample. Predator's Strike comes in handy and fill out the Llanowar Augur.

Apostle's Blessing is awkward to play around if your playing against any Green or a mirror. If you don't stack spell correctly, you will fizzle your pumps. Try 2 Blessing, 2 Ranger's Guile.

If you run 4x Gitaxian Probe and 2x Tranquil Thicket then you could cut 4 lands. U can cut another 4 lands if u run Land Grant.

Scattershot Archer, Aerial Volley, Gut Shot and either Nature's Claim or Gleeful Sabotage would go a long way in your sideboard.

2x Cathedral of War (free pump, no more than 2 in a multi colored deck)

2x Ghost Quarter (against Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle and any other 2-3 colored decks)

1x Tranquil Thicket, 1x Lonely Sandbar, 4x Evolving Wilds these thin the deck and speed things up.


4x more Distortion Strike and Slip Through Space or Artful Dodge or both, take out Rancor

Apostle's Blessing over Blossoming Defense


If you can afford Dismember it works well against major threats that could potentially kill you like Tarmagoyf and fliers.

Wild Defiance will save you against burn.

Dredge is popular so you'll also need Tormod's Crypt or Relic of Progenitus depending on your meta but they also answer Snapcaster Mage any flashback, unearth, or delve decks.

Nature's Claim is also much needed, and/or Creeping Corrosion for afinity, tron, and boggles, plus anything else that runs arts or enchants in your meta, like the silence stick decks Silent Stick.

Non budget suggestions: Noble Hierarch, Spellskite, Inkmoth Nexus, Misty Rainforest, Breeding Pool

Burl on Pauper Elves Deck

Elvish Visionary draw

Lys Alana Huntmaster combos with other elves

Nettle Sentinel 2/2 for G

Sylvan Ranger fetch

Gitaxian Probe speed, draw, and hand advantage for "free"

Birchlore Rangers if you want to go crazy with SB


Tranquil Thicket more speed and draw

Turntimber Grove sucker punch they don't see comming

Khalni Garden saves elves from MBC sacrifice spells

Evolving Wilds 4 of to thin, speed

Terramorphic Expanse same as above


Scattershot Archer must need for delver

Gut Shot takes out small blockers and flyers for "free"

Apostle's Blessing saves Crusher and Shambler, also makes them unlockable

Fog for aggro, mirror, and infect

Circle of Protection: Red if you use the Rangers then ur best def against burn

Tormod's Crypt grave hate

Relic of Progenitus this or the above

Gleeful Sabotage for afinity

You prolly won't need the artifacts or the enchantments. If u drop to 2x Crusher and 2x Shambler you cld make more room also and speed the deck up considerably.
