NEW! Attune with the Ban Hammer! (Pau-liferate) My response to recent bannings...by by Standard Gruul Pummeler...hello Pauper Proliferate!
Suck my kiss: Orzhov Lifegain and extort. This deck has a theme song written by:Gattison. It's epic(the song that is).
Aqua-Madness:Izzet tempo build featuring madness/discard and a nice mix of aggro/control
Jurassic Pork: Lurdurhynchosauropteryx: Boros Dino's using mostly cards from Ixilan. Surprisingly fast and brutal...for only $6.
Phantom Forces: Selesnya counters and damage prevention. It's an Iconic disaster.
I am not the Dread Pirate Roberts!: Demir Aggro/control using cards mostly from Ixilan. Obscure movie reference? Inconcievable!.
Meow Mix: Cats, Kor and Equipment: Mono White artifact voltron. Do not pet these cats.
The Gods Made Heavy Metal: Esper artifact tricks: Because Phyrexian Walker is the best card ever.
Live Fast, Die Young: Rackdos energy with some artifacts...Kaladesh block heavily featured. This deck is 50/50 Meh.
Eye D-Bug:Janky Delver build. It's fun..it does stuff. Does it win? sometimes.
No Glove, No Love ;):Mono white protection + Condom reference=winning.
Band Aid: How to draw cards in Mon-white, no really you can draw cards in white, sort of.
Look at my knotty wood: Mono-green defenders and ramp into big dumb trample trees. This is a spike deck easily capable of a one swing win...Ramp+Trample=Tromple? (RoboRosewater might disagree)
Wicked West Witches Winkies: Golgari sac-combo featuring this Witch...she's a real a-hole. Say this deck name 4 times fast or don't.
Pauper Dont Preach: Orzhov cleric Tribal (Cleric Tribal NFW!). Madonna reference. It's annoying to play against. It has a theme song by Gattison, it's epic(the song that is).
Tyler Durden's Beasts of Durden Gruul aggro featuring some exert and...vitalize!
Larry Flippin Birdemic: Tribal Azorious birds with three references in it's title.
Go Team Spirit!: Mono white tokens that once was spirit tribal (don't think sprits are viable in pauper)...now it's sort-of soul sisters tokens without the sisters.
Clifford, The Big Red Atog: Mono Red plus artifacts. Not a fan of mono red...but I love artifacts...so Atog and Scrapyard Mongrel gave me a reason to build this. One of my earliest pauper builds.
Solja Boyz: Boros soldiers with a little white based control to annoy your opponent to death.
Momentary Lapse of Reason: Azorius blinky-flicky etb abuse. Does this deck work? YUP! Are your sure? Nope!
Salt Mine Prison Escape: Dimir salt filled hate-trol. My most up-voted Pauper deck...why? SO.MUCH.SALT.
A Bigger, Blacker D*ck: Mono Black Zombies plus a Cards Against Humanity reference. This deck requires math skills, not kidding.
It's Madness in our house Faithless Looting plus madness triggers? Awesome all the time...plus obscure British band reference.
Led Zeppelid Oh look another band reference. Aura Hex Proof...tough for opponents to deal with for sure.
Ba-Rakdos-Bama Rackdos goblins. They die, a lot. This deck is fun...my 1st ever pauper deck...still in use.
() The Squirrel Warden: Selesnya Soul Sisters plus squirrels. I think I might add black so Falkenwrath Noble can have squirrel snacks.
E.L. Fudge: Elves. Ugh. Elves are so annoying that I gave this deck away (i'm not kidding)...LunaCelt pilots it well!

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.

January 20, 2018 8:19 p.m.

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!

Very nice, very creative build +1! Great use of the Shapeshifter. Curious though why you choose Brainstorm over cards like Preordain, Ponder or Serum Visions?

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.

Said on DR:TPP 3...


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

Said on DR: TPP 4...


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?

January 18, 2018 10:18 p.m.

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.

Attune with the Ban Hammer! (Pau-liferate) is live. Do you have 3 or 4 Bioshift? I think this deck really needs them!

January 17, 2018 8:50 p.m.

Also: Ghastly Demise, Dash Hopes, Sage of Epityr...chump/sac to Witch

January 17, 2018 2:02 p.m.

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!

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.

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

Said on DR: TPP 4...


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.
