Last week's Banned and Restricted Announcement, which after just a month of play nixed two of Ikoria's companions in Legacy and earned Lurrus of the Dream-Den the distinction of an outright ban in Vintage, should have been taken as a sign of things to come.

Whether that means some sort of errata, like requiring the exchange of a card from hand to start with them, or an outright multi-format ban, it's pretty clear companion cards aren't going to be the same come Monday. That brings some potentially major implications for every format. With the announcement just a few days away, most formats aren't really worth spending the space to write about. 

Today I was prepared to dig back into Pioneer, which continues to see great innovation week-to-week—but of course almost all of it is based around around maximizing companions, like Yorion, Sky Nomad in all flavors of control decks. I could've perhaps touched on Modern, which has seen the rise to power of an aggressive and disruptive Rakdos prowess deck driven by Lurrus of the Dream-Den. Even Vintage, where, as I predicted, Lutri, the Spellchaser had a big weekend in both Magic Online challenges, or in Legacy, where Gyruda, Doom of Depths won the Super Players Tour Qualifier, are all destined to change when companions are nerfed. 

The only competitive constructed format that will be unaffected come Monday is Pauper. As a refuge away from the chaos of companion cards, it has seen a bit of a rise in popularity in recent weeks. Pauper offers a great place to play Magic with classic cards and without the broken printing of recent years, or even Planeswalkers, which are now taken for granted but were at one time as paradigm-shifting as companions or anything else. Its metagame is diverse and offers a full range of strategies from aggro to combo to control, and always continues to evolve with the printing of new commons, like Drannith Stinger, Drannith Healer, and Suffocating Fumes.

Today I'll analyze the Pauper metagame as it currently stands to serve as a general guide useful for anyone looking to jump into the format or perhaps dive deeper into it, while more established Pauper players will benefit from my review of the format's latest new tech and developments. 

Blue Tron

Urzatron is Pauper's tier-zero deck, the S tier, the deck-to-beat that drives the rest of the metagame behind it. The Urza lands that have been a pillar of Modern for its entire existence are naturally strong in a Pauper format where they make just as much mana, and with Expedition Map, are nearly as easy to assemble. The big difference is the power level of what can be cast with them, and without big rares or mythics, it tops out with cards like Self-Assembler and Ulamog's Crusher, which really only see play in less-than-competitive builds. Since I got into Pauper over a decade ago, the best Urzatron decks have always been blue because they can use card-draw spells like Mulldrifter to convert extra mana into extra cards and bury the opponent, like a death-by-a-thousand-stings compared to Modern's haymakers like Ugin, the Spirit Dragon

Mystical Teachings adds access to a huge toolbox of utility spells for attacking any conceivable problem, including counterspells and Moment's Peace to shut down combat, and it's all recurrable with Mnemonic Wall. Ghostly Flicker, and especially last year's addition of Ephemerate, which really took the deck over the top, means it can keep this recursion going indefinitely. Pulse of Murasa ensures these creatures are available even from the graveyard, and adds a powerful life buffer against aggro.

The recursion engines allow the deck to bridge the gap from its control game plan into a combo-like deck that, limited only by mana and cards in the deck, can generate virtually infinite value. The path leads to an endgame based around Stonehorn Dignitary locking the opponent's attack step and eventually Dinrova Horror bouncing all of their permanents, opening up a path for it and a motley army to attack and kill the opponent.

The deck is incredibly powerful, with capabilities far beyond what the typical Pauper deck can do. It has great tools for disrupting the opponent and keeping itself alive, and is full of card selection for finding it or its own key cards, namely the Tron lands. The format offers relatively little hate against lands, with none of it coming as easily as it does in other formats with Wasteland or Field of Ruin. Even with something like Molten Rain there is little opponents can do to stop the Tron deck over a long game, so the typical game plan against Urzatron is to be as fast and aggressive as possible. Accordingly there are really no pure control decks in the format—everybody is relying on creatures because it's simply not possible to beat Urzatron without applying pressure. 

More than any hostile metagame, likely the biggest thing holding Urzatron back from truly dominating the metagame is the skill of its pilot, not just in playing the deck, but in playing it quickly enough to win a match. Unless it's an aggressive mirror match, Pauper matches tend to be relatively long and slow, and Urzatron's extreme late-game focus without any ability to quickly close out the game means it uses a lot of time each and every game it plays. Its endgame of locking out the opponent can take a ton of clicks and time, so timing out is a very real concern for even the most experienced online players.

The addition of Compulsive Research to be recurred to deck the opponent after neutralizing their lands helps add a quicker kill and is something I wouldn't play without. Dedicated kill conditions like Rolling Thunder have fallen out of flavor and are not typically used, but they can be a nice crutch. Recently there has been a rise in the inclusion of Scattershot, which offers some recurrable damage to finish the opponent while adding some utility to the Mystical Teachings toolbox as a removal spell. 

Faeries

Pauper's tier-one is led by Faeries decks that are historically often mono-blue but these days typically Izzet with Skred and Lightning Bolt. They could be called Delver of Secrets decks even though it sometimes eschews playing the namesake; Spellstutter Sprite, which provides the Faerie theme, is a constant staple, and one of the many counterspells that define the deck's strategy. These counterspells, combined with card advantage, which now includes Mystic Sanctuary and its synergy with Tragic Lesson, Deprive, and often Accumulated Knowledge, with format staple Augur of Bolas, allow the deck to stop what the opponent is doing and grind them out over a long game.

These decks take advantage of Ninja of the Deep Hours, another archetype staple, even in Delver of Secrets-less versions, like a new version rising to success and popularity that gives up on one-drops like Faerie Seer completely and has no way to Ninjitsu on turn two, using it as more of a mid-game value play. Instead it plays more disruption like Force Spike, back after a long absence.

If it can connect, Ninja of the Deep Hours sustains itself by finding disruption to hopefully keep the coast clear and the cards coming so it can quickly bury the opponent. It is especially strong against Urzatron decks with few creatures that can block it, and backed by a sideboard that typically includes a playset or more between Pyroblast and Red Elemental Blast, helps do its part to contain the Urzatron decks, which will overpower Faeries over a long game but can struggle against early disruption and pressure. In my experience the versions with Delver of Secrets have a favorable matchup against Tron, while those without may be closer to even at best, relying more on the sideboard blasts.  

The Faerie decks can suffer against the most aggressive decks like Mono-Green Stompy and Affinity, which is why mono-blue has fallen out of favor and has been replaced by versions with red removal. Even stronger against aggressive decks are the blue decks that dip into black, which offers an assortment of powerful black removal spells like Echoing Decay and Snuff Out and the threat of Gurmag Angler, which is a massive roadblock for most aggressive decks.

Boros decks tend to be great at policing the aggressive decks of the format, with Prismatic Strands as a powerful hoser in both versions, along with Lightning Bolt and other removal like Journey to Nowhere. They also have creatures of their own to tangle, like the lifelinking Seeker of the Way in the aggressive build or the nearly unkillable Guardian of the Guildpact in the controlling. Boros, especially the slow Monarch versions, suffer badly against Urzatron decks, which is part of the reason for the success of the more aggressive builds that can put meaningful pressure on Tron, especially backed by sideboard Pyroblast.

Affinity

These days the most popular and successful full-on aggressive deck is Affinity, which true to its name plays all of the classic cards with the keyword: Frogmite, Myr Enforcer, and Thoughtcast. Cranial Plating is banned in Pauper, but unlike in Modern, the artifact lands are all legal. That enables actual Affinity cards to work as designed, which makes them efficient and powerful tools that give the deck much of its edge.

Affinity's ability to produce a massive army of cheap or free creatures early in the game is unparalleled in Pauper, and can put some opponents down before they even get started. The Affinity cards are backed by Carapace Forger as another efficient threat, and the classic Atog, which punches far above its weight as a finisher and gives the deck a bonafide combo kill with Fling. Along with Galvanic Blast as more burn and a removal spell, the deck has a lot of reach.

The biggest thing holding Affinity back may be its consistency, which can be hit or miss depending on if its draws the right mix of enablers, payoffs, and colors of mana. It's also vulnerable to artifact hosers, especially so because it uses artifact lands, so popular cards like Gorilla Shaman mean it's always walking on eggshells.

Stompy

Somewhat similar to Affinity in its plan of raw creature aggression and its role in the metagame is Stompy.

Instead of relying on synergy the deck uses cards individually good on rate and buffs them further with Rancor and Hunger of the Howlpack. Vines of the Vastwood adds more pump and some protection, and Savage Swipe is pump combined with a removal spell, and was a big upgrade to the deck last year. Compared to Affinity, Stompy is the pinnacle of consistency, with a clean mono-color manabase, but it pays for this with a cap on its power level. 

Elves

Elf Tribal decks replace Stompy's individually strong aggressive cards with a plan based around synergy. What it gives up in aggressive capability it makes up for a high power level rivaling anything in the format, even Tron, in its ability to generate mana and draw through its deck to produce an insurmountable advantage, if not killing the opponent outright.

The deck has the ability to just overrun the opponent with creatures backed by Lead the Stampede and Lys Alana Huntmaster or the raw aggression of Timberwatch Elf, which, once active, can also serve to protect against burn spells. Wellwisher adds lifegain potential, and with Quirion Ranger getting more uses from it, can quickly put the game out of reach for aggressive opponents.

As it relies on synergy, Elves does suffer greatly against creature removal, which can take down its action cards and leave it with nothing but mana. Sweepers like Electrickery are an even bigger problem, so Spidersilk Armor in the sideboard fights back with its +0/+1 buff while also hosing the flyers of Delver decks with its reach effect.

Burn 

Rounding out today's list of what I'd consider the most competitive and important decks in Pauper is Burn, which employs its own aggressive plan but in a much different manner than green decks or Affinity. Burn sticks to the same game plan it does in every other format where it's successful—which is just about all of them—combining burn spells with the most efficient and aggressive red creatures available.

Pauper offers some very efficient burn spells, including Fireblast, and all the other familiar staples. Thermo-Alchemist is vulnerable to removal, but in my experience the opponent untapping with it almost assuredly leads to losing the game, so it's truly the most threatening card in the deck and a nightmare for a deck like Urzatron without real removal spells beyond sideboard Hydroblast.
