Turns out reinforcing Murktide is a stated goal of the unban.

"This is also part of a goal to give something back to Blue-Red Murktide, which was one of the most popular decks in the Modern metagame between the release of Modern Horizons 2 and The Lord of the Rings: Tales of Middle-earth but has since fallen out of favor in part due to the release of Orcish Bowmasters."


There are several other cards on the ban list that would support Izzet Murktide more, but I suspect they're being cautious. I'm getting the sense that this is a trial run for a large(r)-scale unbanning. I don't have anything to back that up, it just wouldn't surprise me if they start unbanning some of the less offensive cards more regularly going forward. (Rest well, Golgari Grave-Troll, Deathrite Shaman, Dread Return, and Hogaak, Arisen Necropolis. Your new life will come eventually.)

Good information! I was rushing the Balustrade Spy and Dread Return in playtesting, so ensuring you don't hit any lands makes sense. It took some aggressive mulligans, but the playtesting feels a lot more cohesive. With permission, I'm going to borrow this idea and see where I end up with it. I'm still learning and feeling my way through Pauper, and this deck has pretty much everything I like.
