This week we talk about a cool Grixis Metalcraft list that Mike ran without paying any attention to the meta, then discuss the idea of pauper planeswalkers and other unexplored design space.

This week we dig into a white aggro deck that gets its 15 minutes of fame every few months, Cyborgs. Then we intro a new recurring segment, where we talk about the “junior varsity” cards of pauper, the spicy yet not quite there cards. This week it’s Guardian of the Guildpact. The episode is rounded off by a discussion of the small handful of relevant cards from Conspiracy 2: Take the Throne.

This week we recorded a little early so we could interview Alex Ullman of gatheringmagic.com! Sadly the audio on his end got corrupted so we had to work what little magic we could on the audio from our end. It’s not pretty, but we felt the actual discussion was too good to miss. Hopefully in the future we’ll have a cleaner audio recording set up for guests!

This week we’re joined by Will, the brains behind the incredibly popular Pauper Fox youtube channel. We’re talking Turbo Fog, covering the list featured in our collaborative video over on his channel. After that we talk about a spicy little flyer you may have overlooked in Eternal Masters (it’s not drake, don’t worry) and finish things off with an open chat about nostalgia, Will himself and a little bit of last minute discussion about the recent bans, or rather lack there of.

This week marks 52 weeks of doing the show (if you count the 3 we’ve taken off). We’re so glad that you’ve stuck with us or found us in that first year. This week’s deck tech is a spicy little tribal deck from the days of Kamigawa. After that we talk about some common errors that people make either in deckbuilding or during play.
