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.

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

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.
