The Pauper Gauntlet: The Result of the Voteback

This week we had the Pauper Gauntlet Voteback. Read more about it here:

A lot of people voted! Thank you for all your votes!

One vote: MBC, Elf Bomb, Delver, GruulKitty, Izzet Control, Tron, Pox, Zoo, Trinket
Two votes: Thunder Trees, Croca Jund
Three votes: Illusory Tricks, Love Train, Turbo Fog, UB Creatureless Control

This means that we have four decks that could win but we only have three spots in the Gauntlet for the voted back decks.

What to do? Well, we will have to randomly select three out of four decks that get to come back. This will happen in the podcast Standard Pauper Show episode 25. That show will air on Wednesday the 26th (I will mention the result in my Wednesday blog post here, but that post will have another subject as well) on and somewhat later on itunes.

So which decks will come back? Will it be Illusory Tricks (#2 last year!), Love Train (Freed from the Real combo), Turbo Fog (mill and fog!) or UB Creatureless Control ("kill them all!") ?

Stay tuned!

What will happen after the voteback?
77 decks entered the Gauntlet. 27+3 decks remain. Round 5 is single elimination in the Tournament Practice Room. Expect the bloodbath to continue. My estimate is that another 10ish decks will fall in round 5.
