Burn and WonderWalls won the weekend challenges. But that’s only part of the story. Izzet Mystic Sanctuary decks took a back seat to Dimir Delver and Stompy. Let’s get into the numbers. Burn won the tournament, which itself is notable. Burn is an often maligned deck and has a tendency to be played often whileContinue reading “May 30-31 Pauper Weekend In Review”
Historically, it’s really hard to keep Delver decks down. When mono-blue Delver rose to prominence, it did so in no small part thanks to the interaction of Cloud of Faeries and Spellstutter Sprite.

You are on BG Aristocrats and your opponent is on Flicker Tron. You won game one where your opponent wentContinue reading “What’s the [Pauper] Play?”
Sometimes you don’t want to think. Usually for Kendra’s stream I try to come up with a new brew. This week, however, I wanted to play one of my paper decks. So I went to one with a backstory. For quite some time now, I’ve worked with Mike (Omniczech/Big Mike) on building decks for someContinue reading “Quarantine Commander: Grismold, the Dreadsower”
