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 get down and dirty, kicking things off with a recap of our new affiliate membership, recapping the first pauper challenge, then onto the meat of things. We’re talking about Tortured Existence, and try to cover the very most we can about this storied and varied archetype within a one hour time frame. This episode was brought to your by our fan David Lee who supported us over on Patreon.

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 raising the dead with a Rakdos Reanimator list from friend of the show and known associate Alex Ullman. Next up is the must discuss topic of Swirling Sandstorm and other Graveyard based mechanics. Finally we have to discuss the newest form of Pauper competition on MTGO, the weekly Challenges and what it means for the metagame.

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.

This week, no deck techs, no maybeboard, just a reflection on the past year in pauper and what it brought to the format and where we’re heading. Mike and Adrian also make some New Year’s Resolutions about pauper. Also of note, this will be the last episode for a while where we’re together, so look forward to more developments to compensate for the inevitable technical issues to follow.
