With the release of the full visual spoiler for Journey into Nyx, has anyone entertained the possibility of playing Theros Block Pauper?

I am kind of thinking along the lines of a Grixis card advantage build with Mnemonic Wall, March of the Returned, Gray Merchant of Asphodel and plenty of awesome burn spells.

It would be interesting to see what kind of Bestow & Aura based decks would be possible without RtR's powerhouse Ethereal Armor doing most of the heavy lifting...

I tried building a deck for this awhile ago. The lack of playable cards makes it less interesting than some other formats IMO, but could still be fun to try.

What would a gauntlet look like?

White Weenie
Black Devotion
UB Control
WU Aggro
Maybe something blue/green tempo?
Maybe White Weenie with red splash?

Our clan has been trying to set up a sealed event series on sundays around THS and BOG, using 4 ths boosters and 2 BOG boosters. Bigbee programmed an app to generate draft sets, wich can be downloaded on our clan's forum. JOU can be added too when it's available.

Sadly after the third event it was suspended due to lack of attendance. No prizes involved, just fun and experience drafting that.

And it's been tons of fun !

Maybe thinking of making that series public if more want and can show up.

Check all info on the STD Pauper Players Clan Blog here :

Join / get in touch with the clan if interested.

This is not constructed but it may be interesting for you.

Is anyone interested in even some casual playing of this format?

Necroing this thread. I dusted off my MTGO account and am looking just to play some Magic.

Does anyone have a Theros Block Pauper deck lying around that would be interesting in meeting up for some games? I'll build a couple to have on hand.
