Tron might be very well-positioned in Pauper right now…But what about Bant Tron?! Jason runs his custom list in a Pauper League to see what it can do!
Pauper Bant Tron By Jason Moore
Okay so I know many of you are wondering why I would choose the Bant color combination.
I believe Bant might be the answer to making this deck not only strong against the format’s top performers, but also significantly stronger against low to the ground decks like Burn and Izzet Fiend.
It’s clear that Fangren Marauder is more than problematic for Affinity, and reason enough to warrant playing green in the deck. Blue is also a bit of a given because it gives us so much to do with copious amounts of mana.
So the real ìinnovationî here, if we can call it that, is playing white over red. I think the white removal spells are slightly more potent at the moment, since Flame Slash sometimes falls short of killing creatures that can be pumped up (like Atog and Nivix Cyclops).
People are mostly playing red because they feel Rolling Thunder is an auto-include in these Tron decks. While it’s obviously quite the spell, I’m hoping that today’s videos can prove that it’s far from a foregone conclusion.
