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

This episode we talk about an article now old enough to vote or join the army (at least here in America). Who’s the Beatdown is a cornerstone of fundamental magic theory, and we’re doing a deep dive on it and its relationship/application to pauper.

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.

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)

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!
