Said on Pauper Articles...


I just added Deck and Card Highlights, which would come at the end of every article.

Said on Pauper Articles...

This is what I have so far. As for feedback:

should I keep going, or try to wrap it up soon? Is there anything else I should mention about "important pauper facts?"

I think what I will do is commit to a single series of 5 articles at a time. I'll pick a topic, then write 5 articles on it, one for each color, or something like that. I could also see myself doing some series on allied-color Guilds, then doing enemy-colored ones, then three color and four color also. Maybe it won't always be five, either, because dividing a subject up by color may not be the best choice.

Also, I could probably end up constructing an entire document of Pauper Additional Rules, which I started in the code block. That would probably be cool.

Finally, my plan is to finish this article, and then start a new one before I even discuss this with any TappedOut Authorities. I might even decide to finish the entire first series before I even publish/release it, just so I can get a better idea of how fast I can pump out articles. And to give myself some breathing room in between releases.

Any other ideas?

Legendxp: Hm, it actually sounds interesting, but looks long af. I'll check it out though. It sounds cool, thanks. =)

You might like The Boys, by Garth Ennis. Worm and The Boys sound very similar, from what I just looked up. Very twisted takes on "superheroes."

Legendxp: It's from the terrible classic "Troll 2," which I saw on Rifftrax. If you like bad movies, put this on your list. =P

might want to consider some Proliferate stuff as well (there's not much), like Contagion Clasp, Contagion Engine, Plaguemaw Beast, and so on

Also: saprolings rock =)

wow, just checked out your folders. Impressive stuff!

If you're around, and see this, I may refer to some of your decks in a pauper article series that I am considering doing. If you don't mind, that is. =)

At the very least I'm going to add your folders to my Obscure List. Thanks.

KingMathoro: good to hear. thanks for your support =)

brandonsperry25: also good to hear. I'll be considering the implications of what I'm getting myself into for a little while, and then I'll make my decision.

I may not be the best guy to talk competitive-level Pauper, but fine-tuning, optimizing, staples and alternatives are all things I would love to discuss, among other things.

Said on EDH Banlist...


teh EDH hub would be under the same dropdown list as where you selected "Unformat" (which is for Un-sets). All the way at the top right of the Edit page.

Then, just beneath the actual decklist, on the left side, is a line labeled "Hubs." From there I think it would help to add, combo, control, aggro, tempo, theme/gimmick and ...idk, something else? =) You can add up to six, and it helps get views a lil.

berryjon: thanks for your time, I really appreciate it. =)

I do not intend to write a one-off, no. And I actually did forget to mention something important (it's late, sorry =P). My goal would be to go through the construction of a pauper deck in every single color combination... because that sounds like fun. But, I don't want to limit myself to just that. I just kinda want to talk pauper in general, to some extent at least. To that end, I thought I would commit myself to one "series" of articles at a time, such as 2 or more articles on one specific topic (like "Playing mono-" for instance, or "Playing Infect").

That way I could talk about multiple options for deck-building in each color combo (for instance), and then move on to something else.

As an experienced TO-writer, does that sound like a decent plan to you?

So, would you?

I build a lot of paper pauper decks, but I'm not into competitive play (most likely because my LGS doesn't have pauper events, yet), so I wouldn't be writing about how to finely tune your pauper deck and make it Tier 1, although I wouldn't shy away from the topic, either.

I'm considering volunteering to write a series of articles on pauper, focusing on exploring the format, budget alternatives (for those of you who would rather spend $1 instead of $4), possible deck archetypes, brewing, pauper mana bases, sample-decks, and of course, the endless possibilities this format has to offer. Also, I'd be geared more towards paper pauper, since that's what I play, but I'd love to look into the differences between MTGO and paper pauper, as well.

Imagine if berryjon wrote only about pauper (since we're all obviously fans of his), and that's kinda what you'd get. Except maybe a little more in-depth, since I'm only discussing a single format.

With the help of my friends and fellow pauper-people, eyes2sky & LunaCelt, I think I could come up with quite a bit of interesting material on the pauper format in general.

Also know that I would love to take suggestions and advice from readers and other Pauper players.

So, TLDR: would you read articles about the pauper format?

btw, thanks, Haldarious =)

October 15, 2017 5:12 p.m.

Added a few more:

Haldarious' List of Color Pie Breaks/Bends under all formats

verse2wo's Fetchable Land Guide under lands

DemonDragonJ's EDH Banlist statistics (with link to thread) under EDH

I would like to suggest you change the format to EDH, and add hubs like Aggro, Combo, Control and whatever. For views and accuracy. =)

Also, thanks for making this!

October 15, 2017 5:01 p.m.

Hey! This is a great resource! =)

Added to my megalist of resources. Thanks for making this!

Said on List of Color ......


This is an awesome list! I was contemplating something like this a while ago, but I had no idea where to start. I'm so glad you started this! I'll definitely add this to the list of lists.

As for your comment on Volcanic Eruption and other color-hate cards, don't feel bad about leaving them out. I would not consider them eligible for this list either. Color-hate between & is actually pretty normal, as well as color-hate (versus enemy colors) of some degree in all colors. like Black Knight that one card that turns all mountains into plains, or something like that.

Also: Scryb Sprites

And: do you think Goblin Gaveleer would count? He always seemed odd to me, like he should be & human instead.

October 15, 2017 4:38 p.m.

Podkomorka: thanks for your comments! =)

Sprout Swarm is nice, thanks for letting me know about that one.

Altar's Reap crossed my mind before, and you're probably right. I do need some draw-power in here.

As for removal, Deathspore Thallid is doing that for me for now, but I could put some actual removal in the sideboard, for security.

Also: I've been considering making this five-color, and adding Volt Charge and Wings of Velis Vel or Trickery Charm.

I like it better now, myself. =)

However, under the first accordion section, the first sentence goes like this: "Welcome to fleshy, weak, mortal."

I feel like there's something missing there. =P
