This week we dig into a white aggro deck that gets its 15 minutes of fame every few months, Cyborgs. Then we intro a new recurring segment, where we talk about the “junior varsity” cards of pauper, the spicy yet not quite there cards. This week it’s Guardian of the Guildpact. The episode is rounded off by a discussion of the small handful of relevant cards from Conspiracy 2: Take the Throne.

This week we’re joined by Will, the brains behind the incredibly popular Pauper Fox youtube channel. We’re talking Turbo Fog, covering the list featured in our collaborative video over on his channel. After that we talk about a spicy little flyer you may have overlooked in Eternal Masters (it’s not drake, don’t worry) and finish things off with an open chat about nostalgia, Will himself and a little bit of last minute discussion about the recent bans, or rather lack there of.

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.

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.

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!
