Wizard_of_the_Broke (the struggle is real)

MTG Bio:

I used to play Legacy, had a long Magic hiatus, now I play Modern and Pauper, primarily casually and at FNM. Might do some more serious tourneys if I can scrap together something good, or have enough money to run something competitive in Modern (or if all the fetchlands become affordable - ha!). Mostly I run budget and rogue or un-tiered decks, but I have a few on here that were based on out-of-favor cards I was able to borrow. I'm a big proponent of budget and jank magic. In other words, I'm into playing the game for fun, and doing it cost-effectively (that's not to say that competing with your friends or at tournaments isn't fun). But for me, nothing is more fun than beating a $2000 deck with a $200 deck (this does not happen that frequently). I would love to see Pauper become a broader competitive environment outside of MTGO, or broader in paper generally. I also love Cube Draft (working on a Pauper, or possibly Peasant cube), and would equally like to see Peasant take off in the US.

Current decks:

Modern: No-Snapper (Budget UR Delver <$200), Pauper MTGO: Pauper Junk Attrition (revised), Paper Pauper: Sac Burn (Paper Pauper)

Near-Future Modern decks: The Future of No-Snapper is No-Delver (<$200) , Budget Bunny Suit <$150, All-in Temur Prowess Aggro (Budget-ish)
