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!

We’re back! Mike had a very busy week of coding and project management and as a result this episode is a little later than usual. This week we’re tackling a neat list from around a month ago that seeks to leverage Burning Tree Emissary like no deck before it!

We’re going in deep on a somewhat fringe strategy up until recently. This past week not one, not two but three different land destruction decks showed up in the 5-0 results, so we’re taking a look at one by famed magic player Conley Woods!

We had some slight audio issues, but here it is, 25 years of Magic condensed into one delightful masters set. We’ve got reprints of pricey cards, downshifts, all sorts of goodness, so join us as we look forward in pauper by looking back across the history of Magic!

We haven’t had time for a maybeboard in a while, so now it’s time for a whole episode of them. Both of us put together our list of top 5 “Underrated” pauper cards and talk through each of our picks. We also take some time to briefly discuss some interesting lists that showed up this week.

Those crazy WotC kids are at it again! There’s another change in how 5-0 results are being reported. Instead of 5 per day, we get a weekly dump, which leads to some complications. We talk for a while about possible fallout of this decision as well as a spicy list that showed up in the first batch of decks!

First, apologies for audio this week. Adrian had a glitch on his end so we used backup audio which isn’t perfect. This week we discuss the testing Adrian’s been doing for legacy and lessons to be applied to our format, then we discuss differences between MTGO and paper card pools and our opinions on the cards missing online.
