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!

Back from his trip, Mike’s highly sleep deprived and ready to discuss pauper again. This week’s deck tech is a boros tokens list looking to crash in for that lethal alpha strike. The maybeboard is a spicy Ice Age orc who can ramp you at a cost. This week’s episode is rounded out by a discussion on the issue of meta perception and how the league format changes the way we see results.

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.

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 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.

Mike is out moving to the frigid wasteland of Boston Mass, so it’s up to our handsome hero Adrian Gwarzalez and his guest star Aaron Rubin to try and rescue the show from the inevitable ratings slide.

We discuss Mono Blue Delver at length and learn a little bit about Aaron, a local player.

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.

We’re back again this week talking about Mike’s experience with the new blue black deck on the block, UB Forbidden Alchemy. Then we discuss the one spoiler we had for this years commander product. Things devolve quickly into a review of our first 6 months of the cast and a silly top 10 spooky monsters.

Come with us to the Modern Masters 2017 spoiler fiesta, featuring a cornucopia of downshifts and new toys for the pauper environment. No deck tech or usual content, the spoilers were just too dang exciting to get to anything else!

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 talk about the new hotness in pauper of Peregrine Drake and how you can get pauper going in your area! Apologies for audio glitches, we didn’t notice until after recording.

This week we talk EMA spoilers. Sadly, the sheer density of new cards took us to time, so no deck techs or anything. Hopefully an hour of set review makes up for us skipping some of the more regular sections.

This week’s a big one. Adrian takes down the Pauperpalooza tournament and shares details on the final match. Color Commontary is finally getting on patreon, as many folks were clamoring for. The deck tech is a spicy sacrifice based Black/Red list. And rounding out this week’s content, the first real look into Amonkhet!

Sometimes weird combo decks crop up and we’re here to cover them! Tireless Tribe is one such list and we go fairly deep on it this episode. We also catch up on some general news that occurred in Mike’s absence.

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 black everything as we dig through the fan favorite that doesn’t seem to quite be able to get there these days. We go through a newer list, talk about how the list has changed in response to meta shifts and finish it off with a discussion for the future of “mono” Black.
