Love some Pauper love. I'd like to shout out Ash Barrens as well for pairing nicely with Brainstorm in much the same way fetch lands do in Legacy

Love the cards you have pieced together.

Cards wondering if you have considered: Ash Barrens, Street Wraith, Lotus Petal

your combos with exhume are amazing! and might be good to include 1 or 2 Bojuka Bog? have you considered Nihil Spellbomb? or Relic of Progenitus?

overall this is a solid deck imo

psionictemplar Frilled Deathspitter is interchangeable with Spiteful Shadows on an opponent's creature as the damage loop with Guilty Conscience, so there's a little more redundancy. I'll give Deathspitter #4 a try, though. I missed that Gut Shot is Pauper legal, so that's definitely going in. I think the mana fixing part of Ash Barrens is more valuable than the minor deck fixing, but that's worth considering. I'll slot a couple in.

I would like to see a 4th copy of frilled myself since it is one of your combo pieces and I would probably replace either a tapland or a faithless looting. Leaning looting since you arent a graveyard deck at all although I am sure its more for finding combo pieces. Only other things I might suggest are Ash Barrens instead of taplands since its deck thinning and mana fixing and a consideration for Gut Shot as a free combo enabler.

Thank you for your comment and suggestions mtgplayer903, I've got an explanation for a few of my choices here:

  1. Birds of Paradise over Ornithopter of Paradise is purely a preference of mine. I adore BoP and it finds its way into all multi-colour decks that I make. OoP is a great choice too and budget friendly, but I went with the birds this time round.
  2. Eternal Witness is just a much better card than Skullwinder if I don't have to give my opponent the recursion but can get it myself with E-Wit then it's a no brainer for me personally.
  3. Riftsweeper is in the deck to retrieve Maze's End for me. I have had people blow up Maze's End a few times on me and then Bojuka Bog my graveyard, so I needed a way to make sure I could get it back from exile. Admittedly, Rift does need some support from tutors to make it properly effective at this.
  4. Nature's Claim vs Assassin's Trophy is a great suggestion. I'm not sure I have an A'sT to hand, but I will check and update that.
  5. Vindicate is in over Beast Within because I already run Generous Gift and I find that I don't really like giving my opponents a 3/3 beater to come back at me with. The sorc speed hasn't really bothered me yet, but maybe BW will come back eventually after more playtesting.
  6. Explore is dirt cheap and Exploration is a little pricey. I know it just got a reprint and I am hoping to get one soon, once I do it will be back in the list. I do use Exploration on MTGO though.
  7. Tolaria West is a great tutor for Maze's End, Maze of Ith and Reliquary Tower depending on what I need from it. I find that a card like Ash Barrens is nice, but I don't think it's quite right for my list as it stands.
  8. Gatecreeper Vine is out of the list now and Open the Gates is just a neat lil gate tutor so it'll stay in as the Gates theme is key to what I like about this deck.

Since your deck is a fast one, consider running lands that don't enter the battlefield tapped:

You might also want to run some utility lands:

Also, since speed is the name of the game for Voltron decks, consider those swaps in your ramp package:

The Reclaim can also be used at the beginning of the game to grab Ash Barrens from your graveyard if you are short a land. What creature instead of Ulamog's Crusher, I like the prototype creatures! Ulamog's Crusher is a game winner when your opponent doesn't play or have a lot of permanents on the battlefield.
