Scraps Of Life {EDH-Pauper}

Commander / EDH Cravinovv


I want to make a few of these but am curious to see how the community feels about decks like these. Are they popular anywhere? My playgroup enjoys pauper play so I had to jump in when I dont crush them with a $600 orzhov deck.

I got my current playgroup to try out pauper. We do run into issues when someone ends up with a oppressive board state. There are little to no common wraths or sweepers.

@phc: You gotta load into single target kill spells. Eternal Masters I believe had a common or two in black that had board wipes. Same with red spells.

The biggest trick to pauper is removal. There are a lot of spells in multiple rarities like Oblivion Ring and Rhystic Study that are common but needs to be searched to find them. Pauper is a load of fun though. I encourage you to continue spreading the format.

Though it does lack certain things like wraths or beatsticks (the highest base P/T creature is Eldrazi Devastator clocking in at 8/9, and only 5 other creatures with both power and toughness of over 6) pauper EDH does have its charms, and it has a huge variety of playable commanders.

Cravinovv the best I could find was Nausea. In the process of going through the gatherer I did discover Sinkhole was originally a common.
