Thanks for the comment, fatalzintomyum, I'm glad you like the deck! I'm not quite sure what you mean when you say I should just play 4 Matter Reshaper since I am already running a full set. If you mean I should be playing Matter Reshaper as my lowest CMC creature, I already tried that in my first version of this deck and the deck didn't really run very smoothly, it was a little too slow to get started.

That being said, maybe I don't have to start at 1 CMC and go up from there, maybe I could go with what I think you're suggesting and start with 2 drops instead. Both Nest Invader and Eldrazi Skyspawner both look like excellent suggestions for ramp, but I think I might need the card draw effect like what Salvage Drone had more than ramp so I can find my Pyre of Heroes more reliably. Do you have any suggestions for 2 or 3 drops that can help me draw?

I think Endbringer and Drowner of Hope are both great suggestions for my 6 drops, maybe I'll try that out and see how I like it. Currently I'm just using the 6 CMC creatures as a toolbox so I can grab which ever one I think best fits the current situation and those look like they have a lot of utility!

I did also think about adding Wretched Gryff but I decided not to add it just because I thought Bane of Bala Ged was my best strongest 7 drop and I added in the Dread Defiler to make use of the creatures I was sacrificing and putting in my graveyard. I actually don't want to pod into my Elder Deep-Fiend cause it's ability only triggers if you cast it, and podding it just puts it onto the battlefield from the library.

Thanks again for the suggestions! I'll try them out and see if I can't improve this deck further!

I have a couple suggestions. First of all, I think that you should probably just play 4 Matter Reshaper. It is probably just your best card to pod, also just a decent low curve threat. I do not know if budget considerations are a thing here, but I believe that you might have a couple too many 6 drops. I think maybe 1 copies of Endbringer and Drowner of Hope each might be the best options, but I am not sure. I like Elder Deep-Fiend just for having synergy with your other cards, but I think you just want 1 seven drop to pod into it, maybe a Wretched Gryff? As for the 2&3 drops, maybe Nest Invader and Eldrazi Skyspawner would be good options

Recently, I have been scrounging the Gatherer for new sweet Pauper cards, which has been successful. The catch is, these might not fit into decks in the mainstream or decks built around these would be pretty janky. If anyone could make a list out of any of these, I applaud you. Anyway:

Kobold Taskmaster : Sitting at a steep 30 cents, Kobold Taskmaster gives all Kobolds a boost. In case you haven't noticed, Kobold Tron is legal. ( Crookshank Kobolds , Kobolds of Kher Keep , and Crimson Kobolds ) Kobold Taskmaster can also just provide a boost to Changelings, like Universal Automaton and Changeling Outcast , or just give your board some bones on the meat with Shields of Velis Vel . A playable deck though; that is for you, the victim of my madness, to decide.

Glyph of Doom , Glyph of Destruction , and Glyph of Life : All of these are in here because of a combo with Wall of Glare . Either block all their guys and gain a ton of life, or wipe out all their attackers. If you combine Doom and Life, you can get a one-sided board wipe if you play your cards right.

Mob Justice : This 2 mana spell can absolutely wipe someone out. With the help of creatures from Kuldotha Rebirth , The Kobolds, and others like Hordeling Outburst , Nest Invader , Sprout Swarm , Triplicate Spirits , etc. You could then finish the game with Raid Bombardment , Massive Raid , or Impact Tremors .

Hopefully you enjoyed my list! I still have some cards down my sleeve, but I would like to hear your overlooked cards for Pauper as a comment. I really want to do a part 2, so one will surly coming. Cya.

Chino90 on can i get infinite bounce …

I have both Cloudstone Curio and Cryptic Gateway on the BF. I play Nest Invader . I get the ETB trigger to generate a token, plus the curio tigger. I resolve the token trigger, which triggers an aditional curio trigger (the other still on the stack). Having 2 eldrazi, I activate the gateway's ability, and I put the gateways' ability on the stack.

Now that I have these triggers on the stack (2 curio 1 gateway), can I put them in the order "curio, gateway, curio", to bounce the nest invader to my hand, cheat it again with gateway, and chose not to resolve the second curio trigger?

That depends on how close to its current iteration you’d like to keep your deck. Honestly, Modern is such a fast paced format that if you wish to stay viable you have to streamline as much as possible.

If your path to victory looks something like Elvish Piper / Quicksilver Amulet —> Emrakul, the Aeons Torn , then you’re going to want to ramp as early and steeply as you can to get either of the first two in play ASAP. I’d drop Knight of the Reliquary , Noble Hierarch and Nest Invader for mana dorks like Arbor Elf , Mystic elf and Llanowar Elves . You’ll be able to play the Piper or the Amulet turn(s) earlier than you otherwise could, and proceed straight into dropping Emrakul after that.

That’s one possible direction to take your deck. There’s a handful of others. Ultimately the choice is yours. As long as it’s fun for you and your playgroup, there really isn’t a right or wrong way.

Nice, love how you combined bounce with Keldon Marauders! Maybe something like Rendclaw Trow could be a nice fit, since persist creatures like losing their counters more than undying creatures. But the above suggestion of Nest Invader and Young Wolf are definitely worth considering! Vault Skirge rocks too.

Making suggestions for Pauper as a Modern player is hard haha, it's hard to remember what is or isn't common and what power level is or isn't acceptable.

PS: Splashing is tough, but if you add blue you can definitely lean more heavily into the bounce strategy.
