We’re returning to a classic pair of sets, the much venerated duo of Innistrad and Dark Ascension. With one being regarded as one of the greatest limited environments of all time, does it hold up in Pauper?

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!
