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.

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, we’re back sans drake, plus a whole bunch of happiness and with actual non-mailbag content. We talk about a classic archetype, Red Deck Wins, a pair of card advantage fueling blue enchantments, and where the format is left in the wake of the drake menace, including some hot lists from the Card Kingdom Rags to Riches 7: The Deathly Hallows.

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.

First, yes, Adrian’s audio is a little wonky, my apologies, on the bright side, better than the last time we had Alex on.

This week Alex Ullman of gatheringmagic.com joins us yet again to shoot the breeze. We talk about the newest addition to aggro decks, talk about a classic spell from Invasion block limited, and then have a round table on the state of the meta.

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.

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 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.

This week Mike and Adrian talk about multiformat staples as they discuss burn. Sadly, much like a good game with the deck, this episode’s over pretty quickly. Mike also takes some time to ask some questions about Adrian’s taste in Ravnicans.
