GattisonThose are great ideas! 3 out of the 6 "power-blue-drops" are legal in everything: Opt, Serum Visions and Sleight of hand. I will put together some graphics/info package for you(woi now)...

We should also come up with a "Pauper 9" similar to the Power 9. Brainstorm, Serum Visions, Ponder, Preordain, Gitaxian Probe, Gush, Lotus Petal?, Lightning Bolt & Dark Ritual. feel free to suggest alternatives. these should be the "best" cards in pauper.
also, we could call the 6 -drops we've been discussing the "One-Draws"
also what was the 6th one, that was "legal in everything"?

patrikohnec There are a lot of ways it could be built...which is better? IDK really you would have to rebuild the mana-base and play-test it. Would it be worth it?...I can def see why you use Brainstorm, so I would stick with it, since you can support it with plenty of shuffle effects.

ToxicZombie231 All great suggestions...this deck may go more artifact heavy eventually...its all just for fun as of now. Yes, Preordain is way better than Opt...just don't have any...and this deck was designed to be cheap fun! FYI Tokens DO hit the graveyard before zone change to exile, so yes it would trigger the Disciple(I am using him in a B/R deck at the moment-another standard heavy build: Live Fast, Die Young if your'e interested).

+1 Great build...esp since you are using Pulse of Murasa!...one of my fav green utility cards that I think is highly underrated.

Tardigrade_Cain Thanks for the upvote! You are correct there is no well-defined win-con for this build. So far most games end with opponent scooping before they get to 0. I added the Organ Grinder to hopefully get to 0 a little faster, although it might not be reliable. Do you have any suggestions? Would cards like Drain Life or Consume Spirit be worthy of a playtest(prob not though since only on X)? Death Watch? But I might have to have more targeted removal. Tyrant's Choice? That might be an easy lose 4 life...could be a finisher. Dash Hopes?

I'd love to have easy access to this! Stick it!

GattisonThis one doesnt need end questions since you already asked a bunch "How should a paper pauper player handle cards that MTGO players don't have access to?" et al
January 18, 2018 10:51 p.m.
Gattison Deck and Card highlights need filling...also Pauper Project deck slot is empty(maybe use the cheerios storm deck?).
Questions to ask: What creative ways do you/have you used Gush? Are there any other-format-broken cards that we missed that need a mention? Are any of these cards STILL so broken in pauper that they should warrant a ban discussion? (Its a real possibility if org play becomes really real)
Also, I think you can save space with the images of the artifact lands by letting them stay in a horizontial line, you will need to remove the page breaks(?).

Gattison FYI Sleight of hand was printed 4 times: Portal 2, Starter 99, 7th and 9th
January 18, 2018 10:24 p.m.
GattisonLooking good! One minor paragraph correction "In pauper, there are similar things to this already..." This is a new paragraph, but still discussing Sleight of Hand, so I would mention that or just tack this whole thing onto the previous paragraph (i had to question which card you were talking about since there are 6)
As far as reader questions for #4...insert/tack on at the end " I hope you're enjoying yourselves and learning a lot, like I am. Until next time, be safe everybody...." "now, we want to here from you...what are your favorite power trips and what decks do use them in and why? Why one over the other? Is there a place in Pauper for Sleight of hand or are the other Powertrips better?

Austin_Smith_of_Cards Thank you for taking the time to look at this list! Those are all great suggestions...Ive been play testing this all day and it does seem to want to be more aggro and Ive already made a few changes...I had the same thought about the Hydropons...they need a helper to be worth it. Also Leopard vs Rhino...I considered Leopard but gonna stick with Rhino since growth is the overarching theme here. Thanks again.

Here's some ideas to add to the maybe list: Spy Network, Disintegrate or Fireball(Cause real playa's don't use Bolt), Tyrant's Choice, Chittering Rats, Wrench Mind, Blightning, Terminate and Diabolic Edict. I think Blightning deserves special consideration!

This looks like a good challenge to make a Bant Pillow fort under $100...I really enjoy these colors and I am currently running 2 pillow fort decks that are sort-of budget decks. My first idea would be to add more enchantments and more creatures (esp walls like Jungle Barrier and Wall of Denial). Some cheap enchantments that I find effective are: Authority of the Consuls and Aura of Silence. I think you have to many Instants and Sorcery's(18)...The essence of Pillow Fort in my opinion is lots of cards that stay on the battlefield and make it harder for your opponents to attack or get damage through. Take a look at these two lists for some ideas: Don't Do Hugs, Mmmmkay? and The Tragic Dead Poets Society. Good luck!

DUDE Im making an Energy/Proliferate Pauper deck...It's called "Attune with the Ban Hammer" HA!
January 15, 2018 10:13 p.m.
Gattison Portent could go either way...It is one of the few cards that allows you to look into opp library...Check your email...I just sent you an excell.
January 15, 2018 10:02 p.m.
Careful Study might make the list...it's a pauper staple. (im going to make an honarble mentions list below the Power-TripsBUT wait, this is draw and not a cantrip...so maybe no
January 15, 2018 9:10 p.m.
I forgot about Portent! That makes 7. Are there any other "Power-Trips" DUDE!! That's it they are called "Power-Trips" since they are not true draw.
