Section 1: This week in Standard Pauper
This week is a very special episode of TSPS. Most of you have seen pictures of my cat Ash.
He is playing a very important role this week in the Pauper Gauntlet. He gets to chose the fate of a deck
Oh Ash, you are such a scamp.

Section 2: The Winning Deck
As was my first inclination after the League began, the curve speaks volumes.
Easy as 1, 2, 3 drop. Even though it was a small showing over all this week (probably due to the turkey worship in the United States) the players were all strong contenders. No slouches or give ups this week. GodZo is a great player and he was in a field of Standard Pauper heavy weights.
I am on the fence about this one. I feel that if I mulliganed and the hand was Swamp, Swamp, Ancestor, Blight, Font, and Dust I would have kept it. Therefore, I will keep this hand.
Now let’s look at the next six cards:
Well, you have removal, some deathtouch, and even some hand disruption. Over all I would give this opening 13 a B-.
What would you give it?
