The winning deck:

COPIED MONOGREEN

1st by milegyenanevem in MPDC 29.06 (5-1)

R1: Win: ‘2 – 1 vs. SeiryuAzuma UR Control
R2: Loss: ‘0 – 2 vs. Papieru Ksco Merchant
R3: Win: ‘2 – 1 vs. KyranOHyran Winter Greenier
T8: Win: ‘2 – 0 vs. rremedio1 Lo Pan’s Room
T4: Win: ‘2 – 0 vs. Papieru Ksco Merchant
T2: Win: ‘2 – 0 vs. beatnik bobby Izzet Control

Only loss was to a Merchant Cruise deck. Pretty dominant.

Interestingly enough, this was Beatnik Bobby’s only loss in the tournament. They were 4-1 and 5-0 respectively. That means they both ended with 5-1 scores.

We went over the deck last week so instead, I want to bring you something different.

Now you may peruse the presentation at your leisure.

So, what changes are you making for the next round of the League?

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.

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!

I know I normally focus on mono colored decks, but this one was different. I love that Simic made the finals.

If you are going to splash for a card, why wouldn’t it be Treasure Cruise?

Now, lets look at an opening hand:

Now I want to show you the “curve”:

More like, “look out dangerous curves ahead.”

Let’s look at the next six cards:

I think these cards give you a pretty good chance of winning.

With anticipate coming up very soon and strong three drops, you have the ability to hold off any opponent until you can drop the asp.

Section 3: The League

So, if the next league is classic pauper, what will you be playing?

I really do not want to play delver. Does that mean I won’t win though? Here is the current (as of 4/29/2015) pauper metagame according to mtggoldfish.com

Pauper metagame

We have: MonoBlack, Delver, Affinity, Delver Fiend and Stompy making the top 5. Also, if you add the other slightly different version of Stompy to the top 5 version, that makes Stompy #3. That is actually a lot more diverse than I had initially thought.

But I cannot go with the flow. I have to do what I feel in my heart!

Unfortunately, this is an approximation. Until the database is updated, I would strongly recommend (ie. begging) you post the list in the comments section of the deck page. Otherwise, I won’t be able to fully extol the virtues of your decks.

The interesting thing is that this deck took down both SPDC and MPDC this week. That is no small feat. The fact that it is mono colored makes me instantly love it!

Now, lets look at an opening hand:

Now I want to show you a thing of beauty:

Mmmm dat curve! It is so beautiful. My heart can barely stand it.

Now let’s look at the next six cards:

So, what can we say about this deck? First of all, you have blockers. The scorpion, gladewatcher and the grizzly are going to hold everything back. Also, once the grizzly hits in the ground you can attack with both watchers. The biggest issue is going to be your finisher. Those elk are far away, and if you aren’t careful, you may never see them.

Section 3: The League

Well, as you know by now, I did not win. I came in second. That’s right, I am a big number 2.

Here is my deck list:

[d title=”MonoRed Heroic by Cyrulean (Standard Silverblack)”]
Creatures
4 Akroan Crusader
2 Mardu Scout
4 Monastery Swiftspear
4 Satyr Hoplite
4 Foundry Street Denizen

Spells
2 Hordeling Outburst
3 Collateral Damage
4 Titan’s Strength
3 Wild Slash
3 Dragon Mantle
4 Hammerhand
3 Lightning Strike

Land
20 Mountain

Sideboard
1 Blinding Flare
2 Frenzied Goblin
1 Magma Jet
3 Scouring Sands
3 Arc Lightning
2 Humble Defector
1 Lightning Strike
2 Roast
[/d]

I wanted nothing over cmc 3. and I wanted to control the board state as much as possible. I used creatures as removal just as often as I used them as my damage dealers. I rarely sent burn to the dome unless it was to finish them off or take advantage of collateral damage.

I sided out the Hordeling Outburst almost every game. I usually opted to bring in roast or arc lightning.

The finals went down like this:

Game one: Punning went up to I think 32 life off of two lands and an Ordeal of Heliod. At the end, I had him at 3 and I was at 5. I had a collateral Damage in my hand and not enough mana to cast it.

Game two: I controlled the board long enough to punch in for 20 damage rather quickly.

Game Three: The butts, they grew too big. I could not burn his heroic dudes fast enough and he over ran me.

I hope you all participate in future events. They are free and fun! Two of my favorite things.
