The Pauper Rogue Cup 2015 - a road to the Pauper Gauntlet

The Pauper Gauntlet season 03 is coming to mtgolibrary this fall. Open deck submissions will begin Sunday November 8th.

But before that there is the Pauper Rogue Cup 2015 happening in Sevilla, Spain thanksto my friends at

You can find the original info here:  It is all in Spanish so I will try to explain what is happening.

The Pauper Rogue Cup 2015

Because they are an outstanding amazing group, I offered the right to Cardboard Commons to do some sort of selection process for a certain number of slots in the Pauper Gauntlet. (If you are a website or community involved in the Pauper format and are interested in this for season 04 next year, please contact me).

Cardboard Commons decided to organize a special tournament to elect their candidates. They decided to focus on Rogue Brews!

In their own words (through Google Translate):
"Everyone has a moment of inspiration in which a fresh idea about a deck that revolves around our pet card or an unexplored synergy arises, but we dare not develop it for fear of being destroyed by some Tier deck at the first round. However, what if a tournament is organized that guarantees that there will be no top lists as contenders? Would you dare to show your creation to the world and to fight with other equally or even more bizarre decks than yours? Well, wait no more: Join the Rogue Cup! ^ _ ^"
Format: Classic Pauper (MTGO)
  • The main condition to be met by all participants in the Rogue Cup is that his or her deck doesn’t represent an archetype who has had a presence bigger than 2% in the Magic Online Meta (I appreciate this as the rogue decks are always the most fun to play in the Pauper Gauntlet itself).
  • This is a LIVE IRL tournament. Yes, there are several places in the world that organize live Pauper tournaments. I wish they were closer to Sweden.
Date and location: Sunday 20 September 2015 at 17: 00h in Agora Juegos (c / AsunciĆ³n 66, 41011 Sevilla).

Registration: 3 euros, complete decklist + sideboard (regardless of whether in Spanish or English), player name and DCI. Punctuality is requested to complete registration as soon as possible.

  • Store credit to be distributed among the Top Players.
  • The decks piloted by the top four of the tournament will participate in the third edition of Pauper Gauntlet, organized by MagicGatheringStrat and begin on November 8, 2015.
  • Likewise, a deck chosen by the organization according to criteria of originality, feasibility and / or flavor also get a place on the Pauper Gauntlet, regardless of their final standings in the Rogue Cup.
I will report the result of the Pauper Rogue Cup 2015 here as well of course.
