Great build. I do love a good reanimator deck, and this is top notch.

One slight problem is that Lotus Petal is restricted in the format, meaning only one copy is allowed in the entire deck+sideboard combined. The obvious replacements would be Mox Jet and Black Lotus, but their availability is...well, limited. I’d recommend filling the other 3 slots with Chrome Mox, Songs of the Damned, Cabal Ritual or some combination thereof. You should be more than covered for ramp with any of these.

Where can you track down a Mox Ruby, Mox Jet, Mox Sapphire, Mox Emerald or Mox Pearl for 110 BrandonJamesCAC? :) Or is that not what you meant?

MegaMetagross: It's a purely hypothetical situation in a non-format specific deck. This could be vintage and you just windmill slammed a Mox Jet that same turn. Or you used a Simian Spirit Guide to get the extra mana. Or you you played Master of the Feast turn 4 with mana up for a Brainstorm/removal spell. The post was about making the card more playable, not semantics of exactly the turn order of play.

Most people would consider this eldrazi TRON due to the urza lands, not just plain eldrazi. I'm not sure how new you are and if you knew this already so not to be rude just helping out.

If you're really considering vintage there are a lot of wayyy better cards to speed up this deck exponentially, depending on your budget.

These would be, in order of price.

Sol Ring (the only affordable one) Mana Crypt Mox Ruby Mox Emerald Mox Sapphire Mox Jet Mox Pearl and Black Lotus

Obviously you probably won't put in anything other than sol ring, but for sol ring I recommend a playset.

This deck is not Legacy legal. The Moxen and Un-Set cards are banned in legal. The proper category would be "Unknown."

If you are going to make a hypothetical, Power Nine-based, turn one Door to Nothingness deck, you might as well try to do it within 60 cards. Something like the following is exactly the reason why we have banned and restricted lists:

Gattison on Power 9 Equivalent in Pauper?

2 years ago

I'm back. Sorry for taking so long to return, but I have been mulling everything everyone has said over, and I have some thoughts. I'd like to keep this dialogue going and reason out our choices.

Firstly, I've updated the Original Post, took my silly pIX list off and put up the running talley. I really like the way the current top 9 looks, honestly, despite that less than 10 pauper players voiced their opinions on it, lol.

Secondly, Modern_Brews, with all due respect, I think the pIX should be a list of the most broken pauper cards, because that's exactly what the Power 9 is. The P9 also doesn't care about representing the color pie fairly, and thus I feel that neither should the Pauper IX. I guess I did make it sound otherwise in my statement above, and my apologies for not clarifying earlier.

Third, Captain_Howel, I would actually argue that all three of the blue cards in the P9 could be called "draw." At the very least, every single one of the power 9 cards do essentially the same thing for a deck. They accelerate it. They give you more mana, cards or turns (which is really just card advantage, imo) than you would normally get, under normal circumstances.

I'm not trying to be argumentative with either of you, instead I'm just hoping to further define what the Pauper IX should be. =) Feedback is welcome!

Now on that line of thought, let's get back to the culmination of our votes in the list in the OP. Let me first say that I personally feel that, ignoring everything else, Lightning Bolt, Lotus Petal, Gitaxian Probe and Ash Barrens all NEED to be on this list, and there's no getting around it. Does anybody else feel this way?

I also feel that Simian Spirit Guide should definitely be on this list alongside Lotus Petal, because like DarkMagician said, it is literally a pauper version of Mox Ruby. It doesn't matter if people aren't playing this card currently, or if it's not "paupular". Not everybody always plays the P9, the same would therefore obviously be true about the pIX, wouldn't it? What does matter is that this card is free , which is crazy good no matter what color it is, and as a pauper player "you should know about this." For the same reasons, I feel Dark Ritual is the pauper version of Mox Jet, and should rank on the list.

I also feel the same way about Apostle's Blessing, but to a lesser extent. I also want to point out that this same line of reasoning (first iterated by DarkMagician above) is exactly why we "all" agree Gitaxian Probe should qualify. Because ANY deck can play it. And ANY deck can play Simian Spirit Guide for a free or a free , and to a lesser extent, any deck with in it can play Dark Ritual.

Next, I agree with Captain_Howel (and eyes2sky) about Gurmag Angler that it's not an auto-include in decks running . However, it is quite easy to alter most decks, just a bit, to allow 1 or more Anglers. I think that is why people play it so much, and why it got so many votes here. One more vote than Delver of Secrets  Flip in fact, and I think that is indicative of how it's slightly harder to alter "just any deck with in it" to squeeze some Delvers in.

Finally, I do think we should all stop and reconsider whether Slippery Bogle should be on this list or not. It's not a game accelerator, like Lotus Petal or Preordain, but it is a super useful creature that should be known to all pauper brewers and builders.

Thanks for your input so far everybody!
