Pauper Control Mono-Blue



This is a fairly typical budget mono-blue Pauper control deck. Basically you use Cloud of Faeries and Snap with Azorius Chancery and Dimir Aqueduct to fuel heavy card advantage with Mulldrifter or Spire Golem + Rush of Knowledge , etc. Then you beat down with small creatures while keeping your hand full of counterspells. Any comments are welcome, but mostly just enjoy the deck! It is quite fun to play.

A bit expensive for a Pauper, and it seems to take several turns of being open before you can do much. You seem to be pretty much forced to use the counter-spells on the opponent's opening moves and not have them available for use on stronger drops. I'd have to try it out first hand outside of of playtesting to say for sure, but it seems there aren't enough low-cost drops to use turn 1-4 until you can afford to put out tapped lands in place of the Ninjas. There's always Phantasmal Bear and the Phy-Manas, Vault Skirge and Porcelain Legionnaire being the most obvious and having the additional benefit of making use of your double mana lands if they get drawn later instead.

I don't see the point of the bounce lands Azorius Chancery or Dimir Aqueduct here. There isn't any white or black in the deck and you are already running 18 Island anyways. I'd take the bounce out for either more counters like Mana Leak or maybe Deprive or Miscalculation ? I also think the Cloud of Faeries are out of place here since they are strictly 1/1s in this deck. Maybe add some Stormbound Geist or maybe Vault Skirge ?? I love Rush of Knowledge here though. I never thought about that and it's very original. Mulldrifter is also one of my favorite cards and I like how you made it more versatile than I've seen it used hundreds of times.
