MonoB Control: This plays out very much like Dimir Control. Attack with fliers, disrupt with counters. If you get a clear path for Ninja of the Deep Hours you should be able to easily win. Our deck is faster AND has more card advantage.
Tribe Combo: A rather easy match-up, if they don't have the nut draw (which VERY rarely happens). Damage based removal doesn't work well against Tireless Tribe, so keep ALWAYS a counter open and you should be fine. If one manages to sneak onto the table, keep ALL your counters for Inside Out.
Nice primer, a good resource for someone like me who's just looking to get into Pauper with UR Delver.
A small nit-pick, in the Match-up and side board section, your card names in the "in/out-section" are linked as e.g. "-4 Lightning Bolt" instead of "-4 Lightning Bolt" which makes the popup not happen.
Thanks for the feedback! I‘ll fix that when I have time. Until then, welcome to pauper, the mtg format with the most intense games. Izzet Delver is atm the deck to beat in pauper. Enjoy the ride!
Hi everyone! I wonder if someone has some experience against the new monach decks. Any tips to face the mu after sb?? Does sb need any changes to adapt this new meta?
If you want to push your SB against Boros Monarch, I would increase the number of Stormbound Geist and maybe add a second Gorilla Shaman. To win the "value fight", countering their Hawks and Skyfishers goes a long way (don't forget to hold a Counterspell for their Palace Sentinels, unless you can immediately take over the monarch). Most of the time it's not worth to use countermagic to protect your threads, there are more creatures in your deck to draw. But keeping them from getting value with their 2-for-1 bounce creatures will lead to a situation where your opponent will run out of gas and you don't.
