[PDH] Zada, Card Advantage Grinder

Pauper EDH* Allies Combo Goblins Mono-Red Pauper



Zada is currently the best way for Mono-Red PDH to generate insane amounts of card advantage.


The answer is a board of creatures and cantrips. Something innocuous like Expedite suddenly becomes "Creatures you control gain haste until end of turn. Draw a card for each creature you control." for just . How much would you pay for an ability like that? Easily 5 mana.

There are tons of cantrips that will allow us to draw tons of cards to help play more creatures and then snowball from there. Zada, Hedron Grinder in PDH has a very clear direction for deck building. Play lots of small creatures, play Zada, draw tons of cards, play pump spells and attack for the win. Sounds like a promising game plan!

TL;DR: Play Cantrips on Zada to draw cards and pump spells to win.
