Need to Beat Burn? Play Pauper Mono-Blue Delver!


Pauper Mono-Blue Delver by Medvedev



Mono-Blue Delver is having a fantastic time since Monastery Swiftspear and Rakdos Burn are rising in Pauper, with a win at Paupergeddon Pisa (340 players) first and a win in this Sunday’s challenge.

The deck has a rough matchup against Affinity, but with the uptick of these red strategies, it’s the perfect time to pick up 18 basic Islands!

You’re playing an aggro deck with 24 creatures and some combat tricks. The number of cantrips has been reduced to zero without a single Preordain or Ponder. Of One Mind is instead your card advantage engine with evenly split number of 12 Humans and 12 non-Humans.

Snap isn’t just a free interaction to remove a Gurmag Angler or to interact with a lethal Kiln Fiend, it’s also a way to trigger Spellstutter Sprite an additional time, bouncing it in response to a spell, untapping two lands and countering the spell. It’s basically copies five through eight of Spellstutter Sprite once you draw your first.

Moon-Circuit Hacker makes the deck more consistent, providing an additional card advantage engine on top of Ninja of the Deep Hours and Of One Mind.

The sideboard is also a big reason why this deck is performing so well lately. With a whopping four Blue Elemental Blast and four Hydroblast, this deck does not want to lose to Mono-Red, which is everyone’s #1 fear ever since Monastery Swiftspear hit the Pauper format.
