Cool stuff Vern.


Sponsored player run events are great.

I have to ask about how you said there is no banned list.   
There IS a banned list in Pauper on MTGO.   (Cranial Plating and Frantic Search).    
Are you saying those cards are allowed in this event?
Or do we use the MTGO Pauper format as controlled by the format filter?
    
Have you considered pluggin this at PDCMagic.com?    (or maybe you have and I missed it)

   

      
Hi yes it is post on pdc and i posted on facebook

i did not know that there was a ban list for pauper do i will look that up and post it then yes we are follow the rules for mtgo so yes use the filter.

sorry about the miss info am still learning how to do this again
Looking forward to this, it will be my first ever tourny!

Top 4 for this event.



This deck works quite well against other aggro decks. It so bad against control or storm deck. Haven't had a duel with WW deck.

I may want to remove 2 gruul turf, because most of the game, I'm mana-flooded. I also need to work on my SB.

Any suggestion for my deck is welcomed

Thanks to topdeckland for the event

I think this deck has a good spot in this metagame.  It beats every other control deck and midrange deck, including MBC and Cloudpost.  It also beats Infect because it has so much removal.  WW can be tough and Goblins is impossible, but as long as the dominant aggro deck is Infect and not Goblins, this is a great choice.

I tried some individual card choices and was please with some.  Spire Monitor was really good, it is huge having fetchable endgame.  Unlike some people, I played all hard counters, and it worked well.  Augur of Skulls/Grim Harvest was something I desperately wanted to work, but probably didn't.  Those slots should be something else.  4 Karoo lands failed me, hurting my tempo too much G3 vs. WW in the top 4.  In the same WW match, Snuff Out hurt me G1 because it was my only removal and had to pay life for it.  I feel with some minor mods I could have won that match.  Overall, it did well, going 4-1. 
Sorry I left all of a sudden. I got called into work and they made it seem like it was extremely important. Turns out I wasted a lot of time and effort going in to answer a phone call from someone I didn't know.

Here's my decklist:
Ghetto Fish: Because I am poor and will slowly replace the cards that I can.

Main
4 Psychic Barrier
4 Spellstutter Sprite
4 Spiketail Drakeling
1 Trinket Mage
4 Æther Adept
2 Gitaxian Probe
2 Ponder
4 Mana Leak
3 Perilous Myr
1 Spell Pierce
1 Skywatcher Adept
3 Sylvok Lifestaff
1 Halimar Wavewatch
2 Flayer Husk
4 Stoic Rebuttal

Land
16 Island
4 Terramorphic Expanse

Sideboard
2 Cancel
4 Pestermite
2 Gitaxian Probe
2 Steel Sabotage
3 Negate
1 Tumble Magnet
1 Halimar Wavewatch

 
Round 1: Loss against 4 or 5 color control. That deck is so powerful with the Mystical Teachings tutor package and skred and diabolic edict for removal.

Round 2: W against UGW TurboFog. First time I played against that deck. It is pretty interesting. I took the first game with spellstutter and spiketail drakeling. Game 2 he milled me out. Game 3 it looked touch and go until I drew 2 Negate to seal the deal.

Round 3: Dicey matchup game 1 against Mono red Burn. Got rolled up like a chump. Game 2, my opponent was not able to draw a land for 8 turns. Game three, he hit hard out the gate but I was able to stabilize with spiketail drakeling and  silvok lifestaff.

Was waiting on Top 8 matchup and then got the call to work for basically nothing. I sincerely apologize for the inconvenience I have caused. I understand if I am banned for the rest of the season or for even longer for disruption to the schedule. 

Hmm. What I would change for the matchups. I am waiting on Masques Block for fish to become powerful/annoying. Having the spiketail hatchling as common, with daze readily available and not for 10 tix, and possibly some gush action, it's going to on like Donkey Kong.
