  1. The set is interesting, I'm mixed on the set up and will need to look at the story for once. However I will be building Pirates in EDH (replacing my existing pirates deck), Pauper, Frontier, and Standard (in case I play that sometime) If anyone is brewing Pauper Pirates I'm all in for brainstorming and testing, etc.
  2. Well, it is a "miracle" card and used in some burn builds. It's a dead card in your hand in a mono-red deck. I use Brainstorm and put it back on top of my deck if it ended up in my hand. So if it's the first card you draw in a turn you pay 1 mana instead of 6 for 5 damage. There is a build on MTGGoldfish, mine is similar. Sweet when it works and painful when it doesn't
  3. That and ash barrens in every multi-colored deck. Battle Screech is a little pricey for Pauper in paper. Online it is ultimately cheaper because you only need one playset and it is automatically moved around. Having 3 players in my family means at minimum I end up with 2-3 playsets of heavily used cards. I used to also have extra decks for people who were just wanting to try the format out. We have enough regulars that it is not an issue anymore. I'm thinking about writing something about playing as a family and my also playing online on top of that. I'm very happy Pauper is a serious format (even if not sanctioned). AND it will become much more expensive if it does.
  4. Today looked like Dimir Control, Burn, Boros Monarch, Simic Tron, Soul Sisters, Mono Green Infect, Izzet Blitz, and Red Deck Wins. I like that it is not 100% stable meta. Yet there are some regular decks. Next week will likely be pre-release. I'll still take Pauper decks just in case. I'm trying to get my familiars/pirate deck up and running again. Going to look at the Simic Tron list to try and speed it up.
  5. It is similar to a deck I saw on MagicGatheringStrat where CreepEVee is playing RW exert in match one. Not exactly the same.
  6. I'm still trying out different Thunderous Wrath shells. I am also trying to take some of the started Pauper decks I have finish them off. It's somewhat of a "pauper gauntlet" - all 30 decks listed on MTGGoldfish would be $2,116. I don't think I would go that far. I'll have to inventory what I have and go from there. My "problem" is that I enjoy brewing so it is hard to keep track of what I'm doing.
  7. Sweet find! I'm maxed out on Commander for now though I will keep an eye out. Appreciate that you let us know!
  8. Gearhulking a Dig is definitely broken!
  9. Ah ok! That makes sense!
  10. Thanks! He said he mashed up Affinity (Frogmite) and Kuldotha. He had Thoughtcast and Spell Pierce also.
  11. OK, this is what I think the meta was for today: Dimir Reanimator, Kuldotha Mardu, Dimir Control, Izzet Blitz, Simic Infect, Red Deck Wins, Jeskai Affinity/Metalcraft, Izzet Burn, and Blue Delver.
  12. I think the article was straight forward and direct. An LGS, and most tournaments, are basically public spaces. Talk similarly as to how people expect public conversation to be. The article addressed things much different than just basic swearing. I think stores and community can encourage good behavior in a variety of ways. A simple sign, the way store staff treat people, how we treat each other, etc.
  13. Mono-red is fast, easy and fairly cheap. Goblins can work on a good draw. Siege Rhino does show up at times. This week was Rhino, Emrakul, Mono-red, Jeskai mid-range, RW Tokens, GW Cats, and Temur aggro.
  14. You're everywhere! Keep up the great content!
  15. Sweet! So many good finds!
