4 Pauper Decks and why you should try them

Post by otherright1976 »

Magic, to me, isn't about building the most powerful, insane deck and dominating. If that were the case, you could literally take 7 or 8 of the most powerful cards in each color, build a deck, and there you go. There is your complete Magic experience.

I personally enjoy playing decks that are diverse and simple. I keep two copies of Wagic on my PC. One for the power decks, and another for precons, sealed, and pauper decks. My power decks version has about 19 or 20 decks in it. The later, which I play about 90% of the time, is close to 300 decks. I like scouring the net to find deck builds that fall into the above mentioned categories, then I use their sideboards to replace cards that aren't supported in Wagic. Here are four pauper decks, that are actually quiet fun to play, that I took from Pauper archives.

The first is a three color pauper. This deck went 3-1 in online play. I couldn't see how, so I put it in Wagic to find out. Its is actually pretty fun to play.
The next three are mono-colored. A blue deck that relies on extra draws and countering. A red burn deck that has only two different creatures, but a ton of burn. Finally, a green infection deck, that buffs its creatures. I hope you'll try these decks. Enjoy.

Would you consider posting all your decks? That would be awesome. :)

and personally for me you are not getting the full wagic experience just building powerful decks for players....
i give more kudos for an unbeatable AI deck...when a player can build a Ai deck that can't be beaten with a normal deck...THATS getting the most out of wagic...

most people either don't know or don't understand that the first 100 ai decks were all built when wagic supports only 1000 cards...and when ai only understood half of that...which is why they seem so similar....

I really like the infect decks, but I'm used to use "Green-Blue" in that case. Why? 2 Simple reasons:
Distortion Strike and Blighted agent


PD: why not use blight mamba, ranger's guile, mutagenic growth?
just to do it less vulnerable, but yours keeps being pretty good

Lots of good decks here but many are hamstrung by missing cards like Chain Lightning that are not coded.
