Not sure what your budget is like but a powerful combo and not too expensive could be: Witherbloom Apprentice + Chain of Smog.

A classic combo could be Food Chain + Squee, the Immortal

An it's always good to have Dockside Extortionist if budget allows.

I'm thinking about getting into Pauper Commander, and starting with Witherbloom Apprentice. I'm taking some good ideas from this one.

I'm stuck between two different strategies and for each of them I'm stuck between mono color or dual color commanders. Im looking at a pain/punisher deck or a lifegain matters deck. What I need is advice on which of the two commanders you think would fair better for each strategy and why. Which of the two to go with I will have to figure out myself. Budget generally is less than $10-15 a card but cheaper is always better :) I do have most of the more expensive staples (think Craterhoof Behemoth, Wheel of Fortune, Demonic Tutor ect.) however.


Torbran, Thane of Red Fell vs Mogis, God of Slaughter: this is a pain/burn/punisher deck. My question is, is the addition of black with admittedly more pain options and tutors/draw worth Torbran's ability to break parity? They'd run the same gambit of cards for the most part but Spellshock is much more damming with Torbran out and readily available. Mogis would run Torbran in the 99 though.

Lifegain Matters:

Dina, Soul Steeper vs Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose: again both like lifegain but Dina prefers quantity over quality whereas Vito is the opposite. I do not own Exquisite Blood (my idiot self traded it away years ago) so that combo probably isn't going to be included. However I am aware of Dina's combo with Witherbloom Apprentice and Chain of Smog which I can pull together. Vito with Blood Tribute will one shot an opponent. You could also run a lifelink creature and pump it with +1/+1 counters through Unspeakable Symbol to gain a ton of life and dome someone with Vito. I also own Aetherflux Reservoir so I can death star someone down with either commander. Crypt Rats with lifelink could also cause some huge shenanigans with Vito.

I've built and play tested some preliminary decks (on tappedout) and I'm leaning towards Torbran/Vito. Just need a slap of reality if I'm wrong :)

Deck looks great.

I’m currently looking into making my own build and was wondering if you are still running this at all?

Also have you considered any updates recently?

In regards to wincon density have you considered the Chain of Smog and Witherbloom Apprentice lines? It was something I was considering to put in mine

Have you considering adding another nice compact win-con in Chain of Smog + Witherbloom Apprentice?

My favorite thing is a forced draw with Thoracle trigger on the stack. A closer example to yours is Chain of Smog + Witherbloom Apprentice; you wait until they discard their hand, then counter/remove.

I completely agree. This is a deck that I have been trying to find other that would be alot better than pests because I agree with you they are just a much weaker version of Lingering Souls. And adding Siege Rhino is something I didnt realize would be good with bounce. When I was making this deck I didnt look at the synergy with Satyr Wayfinder. And this deck in my casual playgroup is good but having random stuff like Witherbloom Apprentice just to get the pings of of its magecraft ability.

Also please help with this deck and keep in mind that it is budget and you pointing this out has really helped.

Swapped in 2 more Valentin, Dean of the Vein  Flip, 2 more Daemogoth Titan, and 2 more Poet's Quill; Swapped for Culling Ritual and Rushed Rebirth, and updated sidebar. Fielding one Witherbloom Apprentice, might replace him with something lifelink.

LMK if I should take out Moldervine Reclamation, Sanguine Indulgence, and Village Rites (and lands) to make it standard format... feel free to suggest replacements. currently feeling Village Rites -> Deadly Dispute, Sanguine Indulgence ->??? Moldervine Reclamation -> Poet's Quill Moldervine Reclamation -> Essence Infusion
