Every other pauper content creator has weighed in at this point, so it's time. We've gotta talk about the upcoming Banned and Restricted announcement. We're talking Gush, format diversity and even monarch and tron.

Set Review is coming next week!

What? Arena again? Well over the holiday break, MTG arena featured a new event that allowed people to freely play standard pauper in exchange for promos. Of course we decided to jam as much as humanly possible of this super sweet format!

We've made it to that time of year again, time to look back and see what happened this year in the world of pauper and even some events in magic as a whole! We also couldnt get through this episode without first going on a quick little detour to discuss the newest versions of the Blue/Black Delver decks that absolutely tore up the challenge this past weekend.

We've done intros to the format, looked at unique takes on classic decks, but today we're talking about what makes the difference in specific archetypes for their respective sub-archetypes. What differentiates the million and one tron lists, the various boros lists, or even the different delver lists? Learn all this and more on this week's episode!

Ultimate masters is being spoiled the day after this episode goes up, and sadly, we're both going to visit family and won't be able to bring you a set review till next week. Until then we talk about one of the hottest // coolest spells being introduced to the format, then take a bit of a walk down memory lane while we discuss Temur Tron and a white combat trick we'd all but forgotten about.

Pauper Leagues are going competitive. You'll be able to go from a regular pauper player all the way to the pro tour if you want! Well since leagues are getting spikier than usual, we had to do likewise, so we got the streaming, grinding, unstoppable elvish menace, Kendra AKA: TheMaverickGirl on to talk about her takes on these huge changes and what they mean to the format!

This past weekend, Arena got its own version of pauper on it, and despite protest from one of our hosts in the past, it's finally time to crack open standard pauper and take a look inside. We also talk about the huge announcement of Ultimate Masters!

It's been ages since we've gotten some good old fashioned fan questions on the show, so when Jonah wrote in asking about removing atog from affinity, we simply couldn't resist! They also sent in a list asking for feedback and we let them hear our thoughts on one of the format's most iconic decks.

After that it's a discussion about the RW tokens deck that Janicestone piloted to a challenge win, it's got some interesting synergies that were just too good to pass up.

There's not much to say this week besides this: we got Gavin Verhey from Wizards of the Coast to come on our show after hearing about his love of pauper as a format. So we put him through the ringer with the hopes of answering burning questions about the format direct from WotC!

This week we're talking one topic and one topic only. Are Tron and Familiars simply the best decks in the format? Listen as we lay into this controversial position and talk about what we feel really matters in the current metagame.

Challenge results are in. Familiars has had a while since its reign of terror but this week brought it 2 results in the top 8, so it’s time we talk about it. On top of that, we continue our UR control theme from last week since Hypothesizzle is already showing up in the top 32!
