Hi!

I have made 2 pauper decks recently, as I was introduced to pauper by a personal friend Cloudius. Shoutout to him for his advice and chart-topping decks!

First deck is a homebrew Valduk, Keeper of the Flame . Unlike the one already posted here, I believe my iteration is faster because I cut most of the cards/ redundancies that are above 3 CMC.

Valduktron

2nd deck is a AOE Mill with Manic Scribe at the helm, control based and using bounce shenanigans to topdeck any number of opponents.

PDH-Are my creatures vanishing or is it your deck?

PlatinumOne on Stoneforge Mystic: how to use ...

1 month ago

i think Umezawa's Jitte will eventually be unbanned as well, so thats the first obvious equipment. the "swords" cycle like Sword of Feast and Famine are also really good, especially on double strikers. modern has a ton of good creatures that can hold equipment, and just so many ways of "cheating" those equipment onto a creature, i'm honestly surprised someone hasn't figured out a way to break it already.

i'm honestly baffled by people here saying that modern doesn't have good equip users. theres Kor Duelist , Swiftblade Vindicator , Vault Skirge (an artifact creature that helps get metalcraft working for Puresteel Paladin or Mox Opal ), Champion of the Flame , Valduk, Keeper of the Flame , and Kazuul's Toll Collector .

lets say you have a double striker equipped with Sword of Feast and Famine , and a Sigarda's Aid in play. you attack, deal first strike damage, untap lands and opponent discards a card. then before normal damage is dealt you flash in an equip (such as a different sword), attach it to the creature for free, then deal normal damage and trigger the effects of both swords. seems good to me.

What about Valduk, Keeper of the Flame ? He's pretty much shirtless.

Wow those cards were never on my radar. They are all really good cards. Vizkopa Guildmage is not that fast.

Valduk, Keeper of the Flame is fast. Voltron with Enchantment cards ones that care about power mostly.

I don't remember seeing a Viridian Longbow he uses lots of fight style cards.

Stinging Shot is in there because there are a few flying decks running around and it has cycling.

I put Darksteel Pendant in my Krosan Warchief deck and I love it, so I'll add it here.

Ulamog's Crusher is so good I should put it in every deck.

I like the first strike idea but he uses combat tricks with Vine Mare as well. Vine Mare is probably the hardest one to beat. The ways I've beaten him when he has Vine Mare was outlasting him until he was top decking.

Valduk, Keeper of the Flame I can beat with my Satyr Enchanter deck. But in the other match ups I win if I can make him get to top deck mode again.

I'm gonna add the ramp cards you suggested including some of the removal you suggested. Do you have any other suggestions?

Also what's your thoughts on blood rush effects like Rubblebelt Maaka

Hey Flooremoji I want you to help me fine tune this a bit. My opponents are playing. Garruk's Packleader , Vine Mare , Vizkopa Guildmage , Valduk, Keeper of the Flame , and Soulblade Corrupter + SoulBlade and I few others. So what suggestions do you have before I buy this list

you need some form form of card draw and Insolent Neonate just filters your hand, so maybe adding Dragon Mantle would help a bit on Champion of the Flame and Valduk, Keeper of the Flame .

if you get to many lands on hand after the early game i suggest Magmatic Insight or when you got nothing usefull or no hand at all as well as being an instant Dangerous Wager or Wild Guess .

Kazuul's Toll Collector seems like an okay addition. (keep in mind i havent tested Magmatic Insight nor Kazuul's Toll Collector in any deck).

Extra Combat steps help you seal the win and since you're only concerned with one creature swinging you can play the only one with flashback: Seize the Day.

Equipoise is my new favourite white tech when you know your creatures are more valuable than your opponents and expect to be outnumbered. It can also prevent interaction by phasing opponents untapped lands out or troublesome artifacts. If your opponent has an artifact creature you can choose it last as an artifact and have them be down a creature from parody which often means an empty board to swing out on.

I would suggest some of the other mardu commanders that also enjoy equipment to be in here so you have a plan B. Valduk, Keeper of the Flame, Kemba, Kha Regent, and Balan, Wandering Knight.

Bludgeon Brawl is a funny card that turns all your mana rocks into equipment as well.
