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 about Boros Monarch. We’ve got a deck tech, we’ve got talk of list tweaks, we’ve even got a long discussion about the history of skyfisher decks and why we’re finally seeing them as GOOD decks vs just a deck that preys on absurd decks. We are looking for new suggestions on the comedy/fun segment at the end of the show, so feel free to let us know!
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 get down and dirty, kicking things off with a recap of our new affiliate membership, recapping the first pauper challenge, then onto the meat of things. We’re talking about Tortured Existence, and try to cover the very most we can about this storied and varied archetype within a one hour time frame.
