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)

This week we talk about a blue red deck that we have some strong feelings about. After that we’re breaking down one of the central concepts of magic, card advantage!

This week we take you back to blocks like Lorwyn and Onslaught for some tribal decks! Let’s find out what makes elves tick and then talk about why tribal decks play a smaller role here in pauper than in some other formats.

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.

This week we’re foregoing our usual segments on the show in favor of reviewing this year so far and what it’s meant for pauper. All in all it’s been pretty eventful so if you’ve been away for a minute, this can serve as your chance to catch up on what you’ve missed. Also, Mike rallies through a pile of “guess that card” queries from Adrian.

This week it’s all about Boros Monarch. We’ve got a deck tech, we’ve got talk of list tweaks, we’ve even got a long discussion about the history of skyfisher decks and why we’re finally seeing them as GOOD decks vs just a deck that preys on absurd decks. We are looking for new suggestions on the comedy/fun segment at the end of the show, so feel free to let us know!

This week it’s a deck tech about the Presence of Gond/Midnight Guard combo deck that took down the last pauper challenge. After that, we discuss the strangely contentious idea that people look at decklists online and get chewed out for “Netdecking” and why that might not be the worst. Rounding out our discussions is a quick question from twitter on the topic of Battle Boxes!

This week we’re looking in on stompy again. The Pauper challenges start today and we wanted to get ahead of things and talk about the top dog of the format heading into these new events. We then discuss the role of various pump spells within the list and what you can do to up your game versus it. Rounding things out, we’re trying out a new goofy end of show segment.

This week we’re talking about a janky mechanic from Kamigawa block and the combo deck that’s been made around it, because pauper abhors a vacuum when it comes to combo. After that we’ve got some discussions on the pauper ban list as well as a conversation on what makes pauper the format that it is. A round of Main Deck, Sideboard, Unplayable featuring a bunch of hunky planeswalkers rounds out this week.

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.
