Cantrips and Card DrawCantrips give speed to any deck, as it filters your draws, thus keeping your hand always full and with answers, in addition to increasing the chances of finding the combo pieces.
CounterspellsCounterspells are almost a must in a deck with blue, as it protects your fundamental pieces, as well as dealing with threats that opponents may be putting on the board, either to hinder your opponents or even develop your game. Use them wisely and only when necessary.
RampsOur deck needs cards that ramp and generate mana beyond the lands, to increase the odds of playing more spells per turn when it's necessary to control the game. As mana sources we have Izzet Signet and Arcane Signet, in addition to an artifact that also grants card advantage, Bonder's Ornament, which is fundamental in this format.
RemovalsLightning Bolt and Fire//Ice are great for removing small to medium creatures, plus Skred, which works great with snow lands. Sweepers are also present, such as Electrickery and Fiery Cannonade, which can slow down decks that becomes too aggressive.
OtherIn addition to these cards, the deck also has tutors, such as Muddle the Mixture, Merchant Scroll, among others, who search for the ETBs pieces or cards that directly influence the ETBs, such as Ghostly Flicker, which can create infinite loops, such as infinite mana with Peregrine Drake or Cloud of Faeries, or infinite mill with Sage's Row Denizen, or ensure that the monarch always remains with you. In addition to the infinite ETB strategy, which is already well known in the format, another wincondition is with cards that benefit from instants and sorceries, such as Thermo-Alchemist, Kiln Fiend, Nivix Cyclops.
Betão, professor of Physics, enthusiast of all formats, has dedicated himself solely and exclusively to Pauper since 2019 and recently to the PDH.
