It definitely isn't optimal, I am having trouble finding an effecient creature for that spot. I see most black Pauper decks running Gurmag Angler (often trouble getting to 7 even with Delve), and Gray Merchant of Asphodel (not enough devotion), but those really don't fit the deck well.

I've tested out Nantuko Shaman, Golgari Brownscale, Byway Courier - none seem to provide the above-the-curve midrange goodness of Putrid Leech.

Hey, great cube! In your introduction, you talked about u/g being weak. In Shadow over Innistrad and Eldritch Moon the U/G archetype was the "clues" deck with all of the investigate cards.cards such as Daring Sleuth  Flip & Briarbridge Patrol, & Byway Courier, also Confirm Suspicions, (I dont like that one, would rather you have Confront the Unknown).

Watchful Naga for card draw

Silkweaver Elite has draw on a revolt condition

Armorcraft Judge has draw on entry but it's only for +1/+1s

Byway Courier has investigate on death (something with revolt conditions?)

Wild Wanderer fetches lands on entry

Vizier of the Menagerie can cast from your topdeck

Runed Servitor lol

Byway Courier is pretty unimpressive. I'd suggest Graf Mole in its place.

Good suggestion Aleboth93! I made the swap of Byway Courier for Graf Mole.

Cool idea Ghosty, I hadn't even seen Lifecraft Awakening yet!

trixster87, or maybe rename it "Here's a Clue: F*CK YOU!" haha! ;)

Graf Mole instead of Byway Courier, the lifegain can save your game! :)By the way, the deck looks good, it can be funny to play it!

Thanks for the help. When I saw the spoiler for Rogue Refiner I knew that it was going to replace the Byway Couriers. Tbh I completely forgot about Aether Hub.
