A Pauper EDH deck that is really fun to pilot as you attempt to gun down your opponents - Ddu-du Ddu-du.

Combos and Synergies

The Generators

Ley Weaver, Krosan Restorer, Arbor Elf, Blossom Dryad or Voyaging Satyr + Auras that grant extra mana when the enchanted land is tapped (e.g. Wild Growth, New Horizons) - Generate tons of Mana!

The Arsenal - Weaponizing our Soldiers

1) Viridian Longbow - One of the best weapons in the arsenal. Sticks around the battlefield even when the previous wielder is removed.

2) Hermetic Study and Psionic Gift - Blows the dust off these hidden gems, the time for them to shine has come!

The Squad

1) The Assassin: Rot Wolf - Administers the lethal dosage directly to the player. An important point to note here is that Infect's effect applies to any damage, not just combat damage so we can directly ping a player to death once we equip one of them with any of the weapons above.

2) The Sniper: Daggerback Basilisk, Deadly Recluse, Kessig Recluse, Nightshade Peddler - Our Sniper Squad... One Shot, One Kill!

3) The Machine Gunner: Horseshoe Crab, Simic Ragworm, Soliton - Turns on "Rapid Fire" mode... amount of mana = our magazine size!

4) The Rifleman: Prodigal Sorcerer, Rootwater Hunter, Stinging Barrier, Thornwind Faeries, Zuran Spellcaster - Natural gunners equipped with their own toys... BANG BANG BANG

To Infinity and Beyond

Freed from the Real + Ley Weaver, Krosan Restorer, Arbor Elf, Blossom Dryad or Voyaging Satyr - Generates Infinite Mana! Krosan Restorer would require us to have threshold. An enchanted land that produces at least 2 mana when tapped would work with Restorer (without threshold), Satyr, Dryad or Arbor Elf (as long as the enchanted land is a Forest) as well.

Vigean Graftmage and Galvanic Alchemist get the job done too, and acts as a redundancy for Freed from the Real, as long as we've a net gain in mana per untap.

There're plenty of things we can do with infinite mana:

1) Summon Lore Weaver, draw as many cards as we like and cast all the nonland spells drawn this way

2) Summon Lore Weaver, make all your opponents draw their library and deck them out

3) If Horseshoe Crab, Simic Ragworm or Soliton are equipped with a machine gun, they can gun down all opponents at one go (they have to be unaffected by summoning sickness to do this)

4) Capsize can return all our opponents' permanents (yes including their lands) back to their hands
