#1 Pauper Deck on TappedOut - March 14, 2019

Aztec Death Whistle is a draw-go combo deck with a fairly straightforward gameplan:

Step 1: Cycle a ton of creatures into your graveyard. (Unless you're cycling Krosan Tusker to find your land drop, it is typically best to do your cycling during your opponent's end step.)

Step 2: Cast Gnaw to the Bone to gain a lot of life

Step 3: Cast Songs of the Damned and Crypt Rats , and use the floating mana to activate Rats' ability for lethal.

Alternative Win-con #1: Use the mana from Songs to cast a lethal Consume Spirit

Alternative Win-con #2: Hardcast your creatures and use them to kill your opponent the old-fashioned way


The decks this list was inspired by: MTGGoldfish's Songs of the Damned, Pauper Ponderings' Damned Cycling, and the deck Corby Watersheid piloted to a top 8 finish at the Pauper Championship at 2018's GP Vegas.

-2x Grisly Salvage

-2x Satyr Wayfinder

+4x Ransack the Lab

Ransack the Lab doesn't dig as deep as the cards it's replacing and it doesn't provide a body like Wayfinder does, but I believe that its ability to find non-creature combo pieces (namely Songs of the Damned) makes it worth testing.
