As we announced in the show, I have taken the mantel of Content Manager for the YouTube channel. With that brings a whole host of new responsibilities. Unfortunately it take a lot more of my time.
With that said, I am going to transform this article to more representative of that new role. Here is where I will show case what MagicGatheringStrat does on its various channels
So lets get into it!
Sam finished up his 7 part series for his Modern Silver Black Cube:
New Creator Showcase:
EternalGamePlayer is a newcomer to our site but he brings a powerful and popular deck. He is new and not all the recording kinks have been worked out. Despite that, I recommend watching this powerful new deck:
Quite a bit of controversy was stirred up over this week’s League match between Pierakor and Tazerdadog. What are your thoughts?
And fan favorite Binkabi shows off his latest crazy creation “Modern Tempo Thieves”:

For those who don’t know yet, this channel is our secondary channel. Where we put experimental and new video makers. We want to grow this site like we have grown our main channel.
Dan put in a lot of work trying to learn the format with a full battery of 4 man drafts:
Magic Origins 4 player draft UB Control vs Avaricious Dragon
Magic Origins 4 player draft Sigil of the Empty Throne
Magic Origins 4 player draft Disciple of the Ring
Magic Origins 4 player draft Shadows of the Past
Did you know you can watch full length pat broadcasts in Twitch?
Normally at this point I talk about one of the winners.
However, I want to discuss BambooRush’s deck. He went 3-0 but then was not in the top 4. Jason Moore was the pilot and he wrote about the deck in his latest article on http://www.blackborder.com/q/node/18999
I have enjoyed Jason’s articles for years. His were among the first I ever read on the subject of pauper. I think he is a good player and is a positive influence in the community. If you haven’t, I recommend giving him a read.
A winning deck in its own right
Standard · Unclassified
Played by BambooRush in MPDC 29.04 (3-0)
You should be able to see the synergy. Fill the graveyard, then use it up.
Now, lets look at an opening hand:
I don’t think you can throw back a hand like this. You have threats and enablers.
Now I want to show you the “curve”:
That is not a curve. The thing we have come to know and love about devle decks is that they are heavily skewed as far as the CMC is concerned. So, do not look at this like a normal deck.
Let’s look at the next six cards:
Well, as he mentioned in his article, this is going to be a long grindy fight. In the end, you should have bigger and better creatures than your opponent. Which usually means you will be winning. Thanks, Jason, for giving the MPDC a shot!
