Deck of the Day #53 - Pauper Reanimator

Magic is not only Modern & Standard! There has never been a good reanimator deck in Pauper. Even if one of the most powerful reanimator spells, Exhume, is legal in the format, the lack of a decent shell and having few or no creatures worth reanimating were problematic. Also...

There has never been a good reanimator deck in Pauper. Even if one of the most powerful reanimator spells, Exhume, is legal in the format, the lack of a decent shell and having few or no creatures worth reanimating were problematic. Also: the prevalence of black decks and the amount of removal those decks played made very difficult to win games with this archetype.

4 Insolent Neonate
4 Stinkweed Imp
4 Ulamog's Crusher
4 Exhume
4 Faithless Looting
4 Tormenting Voice
3 Duress
4 Manamorphose
3 Lightning Axe
2 Shred Memory
3 Dragon Breath
5 Mountain
4 Bloodfell Caves
4 Sandstone Needle
3 Evolving Wilds
3 Swamp
2 Rakdos Carnarium


Sideboard
4 Faultgrinder
3 Martyr of Ashes
1 Duress
1 Chainer's Edict
2 Electrickery
4 Pyroblast

Well, it seems that no-one told TMan85 about this and since he didn't know it was difficult, he made a perfect run at a MODO Pauper League. Black control decks are at an all-time low, and recent sets have brought good cards to this archetype.

For example: Insolent Neonate. Not only can this card work as Faithless Looting 5-8 but he also does Wonders as insurance against those pesky Chainer's Edict (Stinkweed Imp also works here). A perfect hand works like this: Insolent Neonate, sacrificing it and discarding Stinkweed Imp, and dredging it. If we Dredge an Ulamog's Crusher and 2 Dragon Breath then we can Exhume the crusher, attach both Dragon Breath to it and attack for 10 (and Annihilate 2 as well).

This kind of starts are not that difficult. The deck is nothing but discarders (Rakdos Carnarium played turn 2 on the draw also allows us to discard), drawers, and the combo parts. Shred Memory works as Exhume 5-6 and Duress (and those sideboard Pyroblasts) will improve our performance against control decks.

We know that there are many Pauper fans out there - why don't you try this new deck at your local tournaments? Tell us how it goes!
