(Midrange Value / Finite Token Production Combo / Infinite Combo) Pauper Midnight Gond

(Aggro / Midrange Attrition / Combo) Pauper GB Aristocrats

(Control / Long Game Attrition / Tempo Beats ) Pauper MBC

Work In Progress (WIP):

(1st) Pauper UR Delver (SNOW GO)

Reason: This is a tempo delver deck meant to shine against other delver decks and various control decks. When Dimir Teachings, Dimir Flicker, Ux Delver, Mono Blue Delver, and other decks of this nature come roaring back into the format this deck is going to amazing. The combination of cheap threats, cheap interactions, and massive amounts of card draw means the will almost always have a full grip with a mean set of mini beaters for tempo.

Reason (this is on the shelf): The current status of Dinrova Tron is currently a scary thing.

Reason (This is on the shelf): I want to master Midnight Gond and Mono-Black Devotion (SPECIFICALLY MONO BLACK DEVOTION) because I think they are decks that are good in all meta.

Acquisition of the P9:

Timetwister [x] / Mox Ruby [X] / Mox Emerald [x] / Black Lotus [] / Mox Pearl [] / Mox Sapphire [x] / Mox Jet [] / Time Walk [X] / Ancestral Recall [] / 4 Bazaar of Baghdad

Why are you running Mausoleum Wanderer when the only four spirits in the deck are Mausoleum Wanderer. I strongly suggest Thoughtseize as the replacement.

This was probably a year too late, but some time is better than never. When miracles was consistently placing top 8 even when it's arch nemesis Shardless BUG, Leovold BUG, Noble BUG, and other attrition decks were doing well they still had to run thoughtseize and hymn to tourach to beat miracles.

Very nice Wicked Reward tech.

Supernatural Stamina can lead to blowouts. I would definitely a SB surprise factor.

+1 for keeping up the good fight and keeping burn relevant

Pyrostatic Pillar and Sulfuric Vortex. HMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM...... Tell me, how badly did "miracles" hurt you?

I see you are trying to revive the old Jund them out in pauper.

Step 1: Destroy their hand, remove their answers

Step 2: Land threats, bait removal

Step 3: Beat them with a relatively innocuous beater they have no answer for.

Suggestion:

2-3 Ostracize in the sideboard for the creature heavy matchups. Might as well as information and proactive way to disrupt the 1-2-3 mana curve tempo of your opponent. Grabbing what would have been a late game flicker target or value engine would be amazing for games 2/3.

I like the approach. This version of Tron seems to the point. Get your opponent dead and go to next game. Avarax is criminally underplayed in pauper in part because of the mana requirements.

I found an interesting creature to cover the Minotaur Skullcleaver. Arc Runner is a 3 CMC (2R) 5/1 with haste. This card fills the role as the skill cracker, but it can hit the board after you rolling thunder or clear away blockers.

You have built own card draw engine.

You have 9 sources of red in your mana base.

You can afford to run the playset of Galvanic Blast.

Playstyle Preferences:

I like Built to Last as a game 2/3 card.

I like Built to Smash as game 1 hyper-aggressive card.

Game 1 build:

Getting Aggressive:

-2 Built to Last into SB because +3/+3 and trample is better than +2/+2 and protection in aggressive meta (remember do not linger on the objective, finish your opponent because the longer they have to draw cards and regroup their board and worse your deck becomes)

+2 Built to Smash INTO MAIN (REASONS: SEE ABOVE)

Refinement of Aggression:

-2 Humble this card feel likes the effect is too cute for a straight forward agggresive deck

+2 Galvanic Blast 4 damage to face with a spell that can reach is very strong in any meta

[OR] +2 Mana Tithe from the SB. NO ONE expects the white force spike in game 1. You can have UB and UR control decks this

Land Base:

-1 Plains

+1 Teetering Peaks +2/+0 in a fun of piece of mana you can bounce is going to very useful.

+1 LOOKS FUN

This is very similar to another Desert teachings deck except you have 4 Augur of Bolas to lower the curve of the deck.

I love the deck. I love 56/60 cards in the main deck.

Lightning Bolt is strictly better than Shock.

SB Suggestions:

4 Needle Drop 1 CMC: 1 damage, and draw a card

3 Gut Shot 1 Phyrexian Mana CMC: Clear away blockers and annoying blockers and delvers

4 Flaring Pain 2 CMC: Anti Life Gain

4 Thermo-Alchemist 2 CMC & You have 16 instants/sorceries maindecked.

Giantbaiting - 2x 4/4 beaters with haste is brutal against any deck especially for the BTE Semi-Mirror. 8 damage out of now where could also catch a control deck with it's pants down. I like the tech.
