When fans of the show ask a question, we answer the call, then stretch a 2 sentence question into an hour long show! This week Enrique wanted to know about price spikes, so of course we dedicated an entire episode to collection building and budgeting for pauper. No deck tech this week.

Well, Mike managed to talk down on the idea of WU Prowess as a deck a few months ago, but here we are. Turns out playing blue cards makes anything a LOT better. We also talk about why you might want to run this list over UR Blitz or another spells matter deck.

This week we’re tackling a viewer submitted question (kind of). When is it right to run 1, 2, 3 or even 4 copies of a card? We give you the run down of figuring out how to tune or build a deck from scratch with regards to proportions.

This week we’re going in on an old fan favorite: Tortured Existence. An abzan list recently went 5-0 so we figured, why not take some time to not only discuss this classic archetype but also midrange decks as a whole?

One week in to our new patreon and we’ve already tackled one fan request! This week we’re talking about Vinestorm, the only storm based combo deck still allowed by the format. We then delve into the subgenre of fringe and fragile combo decks and the reasons they don’t see repeated success in the format

This episode we talk about an article now old enough to vote or join the army (at least here in America). Who’s the Beatdown is a cornerstone of fundamental magic theory, and we’re doing a deep dive on it and its relationship/application to pauper.

Combo decks? What are they? We just simply don’t know. Jokes aside, we’re tracking the rise in fringe combo decks in pauper, starting with the top 8 performance of Freed from the Real in a recent pauper challenge.

We figured it was time to look back. Way back to the days of Fissure Post and discuss one of the most broken decks of all time in this format. We also discuss the current metagame in terms of health and what are signs of an unhealthy meta.

This week we’re playing catchup on all sorts of magic news, but manage to talk about a WB midrange deck that piqued our interest. Also, we manage to incorrectly predict everything in Iconic Masters! (This episode was recorded on Thursday, so pardon the goofs)

Red Black midrange is on the brain today, as well as git! We’re going through a 5-0 list of an offbeat nature, then discussing a new approach to deck building modeled off of a version control system. If none of this makes sense, don’t worry, we try to explain it better than that as we go!

What’s this? A Blue Black reanimator list in pauper? Sure is! We’re covering an odd hybrid combo/midrange list that’s been making some appearances in events lately. Things get a little distracted in the second half of the show, but trust us, it was far worse before editing.
