This week we recorded a little early so we could interview Alex Ullman of gatheringmagic.com! Sadly the audio on his end got corrupted so we had to work what little magic we could on the audio from our end. It’s not pretty, but we felt the actual discussion was too good to miss. Hopefully in the future we’ll have a cleaner audio recording set up for guests!

This week we’re talking about the elephant in the room, Drake combo decks, which have taken over MTGO. We also discuss a cool value based aristocrats list and try to brainstorm how combo can exist but not dominate pauper.

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!

Another set review? We’ll stop doing these as soon as WotC slows down the stream of products, which doesn’t seem to be any time soon!

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?
