Pauper Gauntlet competitor #3 Exhume Control

The Pauper Gauntlet is coming to mtgolibrary. You can submit your Pauper brews starting August 31st right here. Please do not submit any decks yet.

Some of the deck lists of the competing decks that are pre-qualified by different means will be presented here. This is deck #3.

Earlier blog posts:

Deck #1 Illusory Tricks:
Deck #2: Love Train

Today's deck was created by David Shaffer. It is called Exhume Control and is something rare in Magic: A reanimator control deck! It requires some serious skill to play properly. One big question will be if I can manage that.

The basic strategy is to survive using counterspells and removal until you can exhume an Ulamog's Crusher and win the game.

Here is the original article on the deck by David:

David also wrote a later article on the deck that was written a while back but published recently here:
