This week on Pauper Ponderings, we’re trying a bit of an experiment. How can be best utilize Dark Ritual in Pauper? Can it gain as overwhelming tempo to make up for being a terrible top deck late game?

The way this deck works is, well it’s all in. Almost every creature is a 1 drop, we’re playing Snuff out as our only interaction and only 14 lands.

We’re looking to get out ahead with dark ritual into 2 to 3 1 drops on Turn 1 and hang on till we take all 20 life points.

Foul Tongue Shriek is there to take those last couple points of damage once the opponent thinks they’ve stabilized. So let’s journey and see if this experiment pays off or blows up in our face.

    Renegade Freighter might be worth a slot or 2. Open up with that on turn 1 with ritual and then any 2 power creature can crew it. Scoundrel, Scourge and Ghoul seem mediocre. Can’t wait to see how it goes.
