Thou shalt not play Magic! (UBg Teachings)

Pauper* Competitive Control Creatureless Pauper U/B (Dimir)



Since most of my LGS is broke collage students, we decided to start a pauper league. I for one am very exciting to get in to a format where a top tier deck doesn't break the $75 mark. But more importantly, it gives me the chance to play my all time favorite card, Diabolic Edict.

The goal of this deck it to completely deny my opponent any chance to play a fair, fun, game of magic. Who cares about winning when your opponent is tearing out their hair in frustration?

The idea is to keep the board clean with a plethora of edicts and counterspells. Mystical Teachings lets me find whatever card I need to ruin my opponent's day. My win conditions are Curse of the Bloody Tome and looping Evincar's Justice (I have a lot of ways to gain life, so I'll win a battle of attrition).


Changed the list to match what I'm currently playing in paper.

The biggest change is the addition of two Gurmag Anglers in the SB. Nothing is sweeter than dropping a 5/5 on turn 4 after your opponent sided out all of their removal.

Gattison No my good fellow, I am not a nice person. I only wish that Sadistic Glee was a better card with such a name.

I don't know how bad double black is for your deck, but I see Cuombajj Witches frequently in Pauper lists (if not the mainboard, in sideboards) to kill X/1s, and is also another way to attrition opponents.

Have you ever thought of Portent and Gitaxian Probe?
