Crow_Umbra on Favorite mtg art

So many cards have "pet card" status for their art, but I'm always glad to see them in my binders. I'd say I'm definitely a sucker for foil versions of Red cards; I just love how the flames pop. A few favorites off the top of my head in no particular order:

Mine would have to be Allies. I first started playing MtG sometime around 2012-13, as a broke college kid.

One of my best friends got me into MtG via janky homebrew "Modern". He started playing during OG Zendikar block & waxed poetic about what a fun block setting it was. I think Kazandu Blademaster was one of my first favorite cards. I loved the art for it. I liked the flavor of Allies being an adventuring party that got stronger with more friends.

I ended up putting together a W/B Allies deck about 3 years before I got into EDH; right around the time of Zendikar 2 - Innistrad 2 Standard. Anguished Unmaking, Eerie Interlude, & Zulaport Cutthroat helped me round out a deck that was my pride and joy at the time.

The really poopy thing about Allies in Pauper is that Wizards didn't print a ton of pushed Allies in the common slot. Because of that, we only have access to like a third of the selection of Allies ever printed, which not only limits your options but limits the value of the Ally synergy as well. For example, you don't get to play with Hada Freeblade and Kazandu Blademaster , two absolutely insane cards for the Ally tribe.

As far as a Jund Allies list goes in Pauper, I feel like this is the most optimized you can get. Though I'll provide a few suggestions in case some cards haven't come to mind.

I'm a huge proponent of playing Ash Barrens in a 3-color deck as it can instantly find a Snow-Covered land for you. Hell, I even play it in 2-color decks. Is there a reason it's not in this list? Or am I missing something?

If you're trying to go more of the aggro route I'd suggest Goblin Bushwhacker as another Akoum Battlesinger effect but you've likely already thought of it.

Hi everyone, ive always wanted to build the Humans deck but, as you know, its very expensive so i came out with differents variations of this deck but they never convinced me. Finally i came out with this variation that is, i think better tha the others, or at least more interesting. This is part of it:


4 Champion of the Parish

4 Harabaz Druid

4 Kazandu Blademaster

3 Kitesail Freebooter

4 Mantis Rider

4 Phantasmal Image

4 Reflector Mage

4 Thalia's Lieutenant


2 Nevermore

2 Runed Halo


As you can see, i just changed 3 cards. Noble Heriarch >> Harabaz Druid . Thalia, Guardian of Thraben >> Kazandu Blademaster . And Meddling Mage >> Nevermore / Runed Halo .

The thing is that i dont know if its good enough to start. Im still searching for a substitude for Phantasmal Image , cuz here were i live its at least 15 euros each one. I dont know if i should go with only two or three Aether Vial , cuz its expensive too. Lands are another problem, Cavern of souls its really really expensive so i need a substitude. i guess ill go with Ancient Ziggurat and Unclaimed Territory but i dont know which other lands should i take.

This is my maybeboard: Kabira Evangel , Ondu Cleric , Oran-Rief Survivalist & Hardened Scales .

Nice Decklist! +1 from me. I think you should consider Mirror Entity , possibly over Mikaeus, the Lunarch ? I've found it synergizes very well with Kazandu Blademaster and Hada Freeblade . Also, why do you run Journey to Nowhere over Seal Away out of curiosity?

You might be able to squeeze in one Kazandu Blademaster , depending on the day (it runs between 40 and 60 cents on TCGplayer, and your average card price has to be around 13 to make it under $5). Tuktuk Scrapper is a definite for the sideboard.
