Today’s post is going to be a little different than usual. Instead of talking about Pauper I’m going to be discussing some changes to my content and how you – the reader – will be able to access it.
First things first – as of this writing I am still producing content for ChannelFireball, so that has not changed. My focus there will continue to be producing high quality Pauper focused content that is aimed at the widest possible audience.
Perhaps the biggest change will be coming to this very blog. I have been producing weekly metagame summaries in one form or another since Cloudpost was legal in Pauper. I have no plans on stopping, but there are going to be some changes. This blog will still feature the metagame charts and breakdowns for each weekend event and include some conclusions, but the deeper conversation will now take place on my Patreon under the Behind the Curtain tier. Tracking the data and writing the summaries takes time and with some of my other content plans for the future, I wanted to move that information to a space for folks who are more invested in Pauper.
So what new content can you expect on this blog? If ChannelFireball is for the wider Magic audience, I consider this blog to be for the Pauper-interested. If you want to figure out how Pauper relates to other formats or wade a little deeper, that is what this blog will strive to be. There might be some growing pains but my hope is that this site will serve as a good foundation for Pauper knowledge.
What happens on the Patreon? This will continue to be for the people who are most heavily invested in Pauper. I want that community to be a repository of data and knowledge, one where members can seek out the little edges to can mean the different between wins and losses. Deep dives, granular discussions – if that’s what you want from Pauper, then the Patron Only Content tier is the place for you.
All of this is subject to change in the future and I’m excited for the journey to come. Thank you all for everything.
