This is the Pauper deck that I play on MTGO. It's a combo deck that aims to kill the opponent in one giant swing with Kiln Fiend or Nivix Cyclops, but regular beats with Delver and the other guys is also a valid option.

This deck is a well-established archetype in the format, and it is most commonly called "Delver Fiend".

Please comment and +1 if you like the deck!

I have a question: what is the difference between Preordain and Serum Visions?

@Mono-White-Man, I'm not OP and sorry for the late reply, but maybe I can shed some light on your question. There's a couple key differences between Preordain and Serum Visions.

First, the order of the effects on a card matters. Casting Preordain allows you to scry 2, then draw a card. Casting Serum Visions allows you to draw a card, then scry 2. Preordain gives you more control over what card you draw right after, but Serum Visions gives you more control about what you're going to draw down the road. People generally consider Preordain more powerful because of this.

Second, Preordain is banned in Modern, but Serum Visions is not. This causes the demand and thus, the price for Serum Visions to be much higher. Hope this helps!

@TheFanatic (OP), Have you considered Assault Strobe? It gives you a cheaper double strike card than Temur Battle Rage.

Also, if you play against creature decks often, like I do in pauper, you might find that Slip Through Space or Artful Dodge helpful in getting past Blockers as additional Apostles Blessings but both have their advantages.

I've also found that Titan's Strength is super good in this deck because it acts as 2 spell casts since it gives +3 to power and the scry is really nice in keeping you from getting dead draws.

Anyways, +1 from me!
