From Daily MTG today.
Pauper will soon be an official format for paper events and tournament support.
Per the article:
The Wizards Event Reporter will allow Pauper format events to be sanctioned at local stores and for large tournaments.
Gatherer will officially support searching by Pauper legality on July 9.
The definition of Pauper legality is expanding to include any card with a common printing in any paper or digital set. If the card is listed as a common on Gatherer from any set, it is legal in Pauper. This will add cards to the format that were not previously legal on Magic Online.
3 Additional cards will be added to the Pauper's banned list including:
I'm excited by the news. Kudos to everyone who has been an evangelist for this format!
Official announcement from Twitch.
Tolarian Community College has a video regarding the news plus additional info.

Jun 25, 2019Zombie Shakespeare posted a message on [[Primer]] [PAUPER] Crushing Dreams on a Budget - Child of Alara (UPDATE 07-2018!)Just so everyone is aware MTG Salvation will continue to be online and accessible after July 8th but will be under new management. You can read more here. I believe some of the mods & admins were developing a new site prior to this new owner/manager coming about and they are committed to seeing it through so some may be leaving to focus on that site.Posted in: Variant Commander

The site will remain in read-only mode after the close date (July 8th) and several of the mods are working on another site for future discussions. So all hope is not lost. Stay tuned.Quote from Fr0sty711 »MTGSALVATION IS SHUTTING DOWN.. What a sad day.. I super loved talking about this deck and all the help you gave me with crafting this deck.. Better get any last chatter about this deck before it shuts down.. Sad day for pauper COA.
//UPDATE: MTG Salvation will be live and accessible after July 8th to all but under new management. Read here for details.
Apr 15, 2019This looks like a good start. I'm definitely interested in hearing how your games go. Here are a few notes:Posted in: Variant Commander
I'll second Reaper's two cents on Mnemonic Wall over Scrivener. There are plenty of times where being able to recur a more relevant sorcery can matter.
Scribe of the Mindful's activated ability is slightly cheaper than Spellkeeper Weird's if P/T isn't a big factor for the deck. Both have "tap" in their activation so I am curious how well they do.
Other cards to I would consider for your maybe-board include: Costly Plunder, Perilous Research, or the newly spoiled Spark Harvest as a means of getting your creatures into the yard. Also, Fade into Antiquity if Deglamer and bounce aren't enough versus indestructibles.

Nice article with interviews with the artists involved and nods to classic art.
Mar 15, 2019Be aware that getting unauthorized prints of copyrighted material is illegal. Even for personal, non-commercial use. Additionally, such discussion is against the rules of this site. Further discussion about this will be met with warnings for Promotion of Illegal Activity.Posted in: Artwork

Maybe I'm just being a little more skeptical in my old age but what I heard at approximately the 3:30 mark was "There is a set we are thinking about putting it in." (Emphasis mine). That's not a lock by any means.
And more than likely Wizards would want to update the artwork and that is typically done a year out from release. So if it's not a lock at this point that means we probably won't see it until the end of 2020 at the earliest.
That said, I would love to see it reprinted and I'm excited about a lot of what was discussed in the interview but at the same time things move super slow so we'll see.
Jan 20, 2019Are mythics allowed as Commanders or just normal rares?Posted in: Variant Commander
I know some constructed variants for Peasant have a limit on the number of uncommons a deck can run. Does this have one?
Are there specific uncommons that put Alesha on your watch list? I've brainstormed an all commons version but was never impressed with the deck's power level.

It's okay but Unhallowed Pact and Shade's Form are better, more direct options for that. Undying Evil also is a better reactive means of achieving the same effect.

That was my initial impression as well but you never know.
A few additional cards you might want to consider include Tidehollow Strix, Thorn of the Black Rose, and Star Compass. Also, while digging around I found someone else's PDH Rona list here. It has a slightly more aggro strategy than what you may be after but it might be worth a look.
Jan 16, 2019Looks like a good start. The number of lands are a little low for my tastes. I'd do 35 or 36 at the very least. Merchant Scroll & Mystical Teachings are definite includes as well.Posted in: Variant Commander
Land options include:
- Path of Ancestry
- Submerged Boneyard
- Terramorphic Expanse
- Evolving Wilds
- Ash Barrens
- Seat of the Synod
- Vault of Whispers
- Darksteel Citadel
Notion Rain might be an alternative to either Read the Bones or Forbidden Alchemy depending on how aggressive you want to be in filling up our graveyard.
You'll also need some creature recursion as well. Cadaver Imp, Grim Discovery, Reaping the Graves, and/or Fortuitous Find are all solid options.
Let me know how Cabal Paladin works out. Looks interesting.
- Path of Ancestry

Haven't made it all the way thru it yet but it looks interesting. He could have combo'd out at roughly the 10 minute mark if he had Flickered the Drake and a basic land instead of going for Mulldrifter. Will rewatch after lunch.Quote from Upkeep »Also, have you seen this?
//EDIT: Lol! I just realized this is you Upkeep. Now I feel a little silly. Keep it up! Really I enjoyed the Turbo Fog game.
