Pauper Challenge #5: The Jason Moore Invitational

Pauper Challenge #5: The Jason Moore Invitational

Jun 30, 2014

Are you tired of seeing the same old decks in Pauper events? Sick of feeling like you have to play Delver to win? Casting Commons would like to announce the fourth Pauper Challenge. Every two weeks we will be posting a new challenge involving the Pauper format. Each challenge is unique and designed to encourage Pauper players to push the limits and think outside of the box. The first player who completes the challenge successfully wins the prize posted for the challenge. Every challenge remains open until it has been completed successfully by a player and marked as closed by our editors. We will post any winning submissions on our site to highlight the winning player and their achievement. Good luck to everyone!

To further motivate Brewers, the winner of this challenge will be automatically invited to our Casting Commons Pauper Invitational, normally reserved for the Top 50 on our Pauper Players Premier Event Leaderboard. (More information coming soon.) They will also have the opportunity to write a paid guest column for our New Brews section. Clearly no one has met our first two challenges so we figured we needed to raise the stakes. Hopefully you will all be motivated by the release of Born of the Gods on Magic Online.

If you need more help, Alex himself has provided potential Brewers with a whopping 16 initial lists in his latest article for StarCityGames, Finding The Way With Satyr Wayfinder.
