Pauper Web Week – August 31

Wednesday, August 31st, 2011

It’s been a week and a half since I posted this last, but I am thinking that wednesdays will be the day that these get posted normally, so here we are.  Here’s the links that I’ve found on the web about Pauper in the last week and a half!

Learning Through Losing
A new writer to me starts out with a non-pauper deck, but spends a little time at the end going over a Classic Pauper Burn deck and also tosses in a storm deck for everyone to mull over.

Mikey K Pauper Testing Session 25
Another monday means that there’s another post from Mikey K on the mtgovideos site, with three videos from pauper testing, and an epic MBC mirror match that you want to watch if you like to watch games at all.

And another pauper testing session, this time with an interesting UR cloudpost deck.

PRE #2: The Famous Auction of the People
Josue Ledesma turns in a PRE report which is on our own Auction of the People which was run just recently.  He has a good set of videos which covers a lot of the decks, because he ended up getting all the way to the semifinals.

Pauper Standard Weekly Metagame Update: MPDC 14.01
PiDave writes up another great update for the Standard PDC metagame.  His articles are consistently good, so they will probably be appearing here often.

And another week’s worth too, owing to the long amount of time between updates.

That’s all for this week.  If I’m missing something that you see around, please let me know in the comments.  I’d really like this to be mostly comprehensive.  Look for some more good content on the blog soon!

This week on the Pauper Web

Saturday, August 20th, 2011

Welcome to a new weekly update on the articles that are available on the web that are related to Pauper Magic.  It’s a little short this week as I get started up.

Birds of Paradise: Pledge
badmalloc presents a new deck for classic which is white weenie token based.  He covers his build of the deck and a few playthroughs in the casual room.  There’s also a decent discussion of this deck on the PDCMagic forum.

Mikey’s Pauper Testing 24
Mikey continues his long-lasting web series of Youtube playtesting videos, this time focusing on the venerable Mono Black Control.

If you have other articles that happened this week, let me know in the comments.
