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.

This episode also marks our first episode with our new audio hosting with PodBean, so please alert us if you've had any issues with getting a hold of this new episode.

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!

This week we’re here talking about a WB Aristocrats list that piqued our attention after remarks last week that such a deck didn’t exist. We also delve into the perennial favorite Italian Pauper tournament, Paupergeddon, this time with notably reduced lack of knowledge of Italian city names!

This week we’re talking about the results from the recent paupergeddon tournament over in Italy! Apologies around 4 minutes, Adrian had some difficulty with his mic glitching out resulting in some audio needing to be cut. We also address a fan’s concerns about pauper’s image as a format.

With a pedigree stretching back to some of the earliest days of Magic, mono white aggro has been a multiformat fixture. Sadly this time honored archetype has been fairly absent from pauper in the past few years, so we decided to examine why that might be!

The full Battlebond spoiler is out, so it’s time for a set review! Only real catch is, this set didn’t bring a bunch of new things to pauper as a format, so we’re using a patron submitted idea and we’re reviewing an old influential set for pauper! Enjoy our look back on Rise of the Eldrazi and the mark it’s left on the format!
