Want to play a deck that doesn't exist anywhere else?

Want to remind people that graveyard order matters?

Want to fight with people about the legality of Mistmoon Griffin?

Then Pauper Living End is for you!

This deck is weird, but it actually totally works. You just cycle your big dudes, to fish up lands or just maintain cards, then you can early on throw out an Exhume to grab some big dude like a Jungle Weaver, or wait a bit and play one of your white spells, Mistmoon Griffin or Breath of Life.

There are some funky things you can do, too. any of the sacrifice effects, especially It of the Horrid Swarm, can be used to sacrifice a Mistmoon Griffin in order to bring up a dead dude and get mad value.

While setting up everything, you can use the kill spells and stuff to stay alive.

And after everything, there comes a point where you just start hard casting big creatures. Then recur them. Then recur them again. This deck plays the long game impressively well.

The sideboard is pretty straightforward, just bring in the hate that hates what you want to hate.

Sadly, Mistmoon Griffin isn't legal because it was an uncommon online. I'm not exactly sold on It of the Horrid Swarm, either? Why exactly is that one in the list? Overall, though, I like the idea, I plan on giving it some tweaks and trying it out.

Thanks for checking it out! Mistmoon Griffina common, you can check that on gatherer. It of the Horrid Swarm is a funky include I actually really like, since it works as a fun sac outlet to the griffin, and is surprisingly flexible as far as shaping your creature pool to what's going on in the game. It being pauper, edicts are abundant, so the tokens can really come in handy! There's probably something better, but I find it works nicely.

Great to see anyone taking an interest, I think there's potential for funky stuff like this out there!

Just tried to build this deck on MTGO, but Breath of Life is not legal in Pauper.

That would probably be because it was printed at common only in the first two portal sets, and idk if those exist online. I'm a paper pauper player, so I don't know what weird MTGO stuff is going on. Sorry!
