As requested in a previous YouTube comment, Jason tries out Goblin Matron in a Mardu shell! Will the Pauper 2-Man Queues be kind to him?
Pauper Mardu Matron Midrange By Jason Moore
Heliod’s Pilgrim was in the deck for a while (as requested by clelvis225), but I just don’t think it’s well-positioned right now.
Peregrine Drake encourages us to play Lightning Bolt, while many decks in the format still encourage Flame Slash. This means that a number of our deck slots are already accounted for, and making even more space for aura-based removal and other synergies just doesn’t seem optimal.
This deck certainly underperformed today, and I’m trying to piece together why.
I built and played a very similar strategy recently, and that one semed to do much better. This particular list seems to be lacking in overall power, and has a tendency to lose topdeck wars (which it shouldn’t).
It also feels like a worse version of other decks in this class (a class that includes Kuldotha Jeskai, MBC and Puaper Domain) because it doesn’t have many haymaker sequences along the lines of devotion-into-Gray Merchant of Asphodel.
Feel free to point out what you think might be going wrong with the deck.
Coming soon is Dime a Dozen #100! Crazy.
