Power_T looks at Five Color Green in Pauper

Power_T is my magic mentor who built the deck UB Trinket Control and coached me to my run on the Pro Tour back in the day. 

Five Color Green is a very strange Pauper deck designed by Shyft4. It only works in the Pauper Gauntlet for some reason.  Original deck list:

I received an email from the man. Here it is (my translation from Swedish): 

"I watched you play Five Color Green in the Pauper Gauntlet. I took that deck, rebuilt it, played a little, rebuilt it a little more, played a little more. It is not a competetive deck but it was very fun to play casually. The build is a work in progress and I can't really recommend anyone to play it, except for fun.

With 17 land you are mana screwed one-third of the time and - as you have so many mana sources - you are flooded another one-third of the time. The remaining one-third of the time you would think that the deck is flowing and is the perfect deck but a substantial part of those are games where you start mana screwed and then end up flooding.

OK, maybe it is not that bad."
