KayneMarco: As a Pauper EDH deck, you can only use one uncommon creature as the Commander, and only commons in the 99. Unfortunately neither of those two cards were ever printed/released at common, so they wouldn't be legal. =)
As for the deck...
Echo Circlet & Vanguard's Shield for starters. Plus Cathar's Shield, Accorder's Shield also because you want to keep him untapped and able to block as well as attack. There're other vigilance enablers like True-Faith Censer, too.
I'm just tossing out ideas, so maybe something there can help get you started! =)

I'd like to make a suggestion.
Would you mind formatting the entries like this?

Cool deck. And I never saw Curfew before, nice addition. They finally get a creature out, then you bounce it, they have to retap to recast, meanwhile you get another trigger. Cool!

All my sac' fodder can sac' themselves, so I actually thought I should avoid Altar's Reap... that, and yes I ran out of them. =\

Hello there! great deck, and I love Dimir!
Questions for you though, if you don't mind (with a quick story first, lol): I'm tweaking a similar deck behind Disciple of Deceit. Recently I almost swapped her out for Bane Alley Broker, but realized it would change the deck too much, and also seemed slower.
Your Commander however does seem very similar to what I'm in the process of doing with Disciple of Deceit. Did you consider Disciple at all? What are your thoughts on the two? It seems like my Commander just got outclassed, lol. X)
Sorry for quizzing you like this. You can answer at your leisure. =P =)

eyessky: yeah, basically. Also, many people say playing pauper is like playing Magic: The Gathering "as Richard Garfield intended." It has a very old-school feel that often reminds older players of what it was like to play Magic when the game first came out.
Bovine073: Thanks for clarifying that for me. I appreciate it. =)

Woops, some of my images didn't show. Probably because they were too large to be in a row.
Here's what you missed. =)

I'm back. Sorry for taking so long to return, but I have been mulling everything everyone has said over, and I have some thoughts. I'd like to keep this dialogue going and reason out our choices.
Firstly, I've updated the Original Post, took my silly pIX list off and put up the running talley. I really like the way the current top 9 looks, honestly, despite that less than 10 pauper players voiced their opinions on it, lol.
Secondly, Modern_Brews, with all due respect, I think the pIX should be a list of the most broken pauper cards, because that's exactly what the Power 9 is. The P9 also doesn't care about representing the color pie fairly, and thus I feel that neither should the Pauper IX. I guess I did make it sound otherwise in my statement above, and my apologies for not clarifying earlier.
Third, Captain_Howel, I would actually argue that all three of the blue cards in the P9 could be called "draw." At the very least, every single one of the power 9 cards do essentially the same thing for a deck. They accelerate it. They give you more mana, cards or turns (which is really just card advantage, imo) than you would normally get, under normal circumstances.
I'm not trying to be argumentative with either of you, instead I'm just hoping to further define what the Pauper IX should be. =) Feedback is welcome!
Now on that line of thought, let's get back to the culmination of our votes in the list in the OP. Let me first say that I personally feel that, ignoring everything else, Lightning Bolt, Lotus Petal, Gitaxian Probe and Ash Barrens all NEED to be on this list, and there's no getting around it. Does anybody else feel this way?
I also feel that Simian Spirit Guide should definitely be on this list alongside Lotus Petal, because like DarkMagician said, it is literally a pauper version of Mox Ruby. It doesn't matter if people aren't playing this card currently, or if it's not "paupular". Not everybody always plays the P9, the same would therefore obviously be true about the pIX, wouldn't it? What does matter is that this card is free , which is crazy good no matter what color it is, and as a pauper player "you should know about this." For the same reasons, I feel Dark Ritual is the pauper version of Mox Jet, and should rank on the list.
I also feel the same way about Apostle's Blessing, but to a lesser extent. I also want to point out that this same line of reasoning (first iterated by DarkMagician above) is exactly why we "all" agree Gitaxian Probe should qualify. Because ANY deck can play it. And ANY deck can play Simian Spirit Guide for a free or a free , and to a lesser extent, any deck with in it can play Dark Ritual.
Next, I agree with Captain_Howel (and eyessky) about Gurmag Angler that it's not an auto-include in decks running . However, it is quite easy to alter most decks, just a bit, to allow 1 or more Anglers. I think that is why people play it so much, and why it got so many votes here. One more vote than Delver of Secrets Flip in fact, and I think that is indicative of how it's slightly harder to alter "just any deck with in it" to squeeze some Delvers in.
Finally, I do think we should all stop and reconsider whether Slippery Bogle should be on this list or not. It's not a game accelerator, like Lotus Petal or Preordain, but it is a super useful creature that should be known to all pauper brewers and builders.
Thanks for your input so far everybody!
