I enjoyed watching the games and look forward to seeing you continue your adventure in Modern. Reply alex November 24, 2017 Neat break from the regular pauper games. I’ve been flirting with taking a modern/pauper deck to modern play night at my local store for sometime, but, just not sure what I want to go with yet. I think you could probably convert this into a heroic boros or possibly naya pauper deck Akroan Crusader/Skyguard are both decent. Lagonna-Band Trailblazer is great at clogging the ground and gets out of range of any red removal pretty quickly. You’ve already got Blades of Velis Vel and could bring in Tandem Tactics. Hoplite Satyr is a decent filler. If you go with green the creatures are a little more mana intensive and higher in cc, but, most importantly, this opens up an option like Travel Preparation, which is a Heroic all-star. There is also the possibility of Blue for Wavecrash Titan as you can essentially lock opposing creature decks out of ever being able to attack. Could be a fun little experiment Reply Leave a Reply Cancel ReplyYour email address will not be published.CommentName Email Website Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.
