Pauper Gauntlet Competitor #1 The Green One by Deluxeicoff

The Pauper Gauntlet is returning to mtgolibrary in November.

I will present some of the competing decks here and on in preparation.

The Green One earns a spot in the third season of the Pauper Gauntlet by getting a top 10 result last year.

For this year, I managed to get Deluxeicoff to talk about sideboarding. After three years of talking with the Pauper Master Brewer, this is the first time I get him to give me any advice on sideboarding, so that is a milestone :)

The idea behind the The Green One is to make an even more aggressive version of Stompy that goes for the face.

The Green One

2 Uktabi Drake
4 Vines
3 Bogle
4 Bonesplitter
1 Flayer HUsk
4 Vault Skirge
4 Ledgewalker
4 Quirion Ranger
4 Hunger
4 Nettle Sentinel
4 pit-skulk
4 Rancor
16 Forest
2 Khalni Garden

1 Longbow
4 Archer
3 Spore Frog
4 Moment's Peace
3 Faerie Macabre

Sideboarding advice
Delver...add 4 scattershots and 1 bow, lose 1 vines, 1 rancor, 3 ledge
Gobs/aggro...add 3 frogs and all 4 moment's - lose 3 boggle, 2 vault, 1 vine, 1 ranger
Graveyard combo (fae/mill etc) add 3 fae macabre, 3 scattershot, 1 bow, lose husk, 2 rancor, 1 hunger, 1 bonesplit, one ledge
Affinity - board same as gobs, but keep 2 vaults in and take out another vine/ranger
MBC - add scattershots to eat edicts depending on build - losing ranger, rancor, vines (1 each - mbc pretty easy matchup)

Don't discount the drake - often times if the game goes mid-long (rare) topdecking one of these with some bonesplitters laying around can be a quick green-flying ball lightning - VERY often vs. control/teachings styles, they exhaust your critters, and tap out thinking they'll have a turn for answers, nope!
