A Comprehensive List of Pauper Playables: Full Text Version

Reddit

Welcome back one last time for the final part of the Comprehensive List of Pauper Playables! This final week is a complete text version of the list that has been laid out in a visual spoiler style over the last few weeks. The reason for this is that some players prefer a text version to have a checklist, use it to convert to places like Magic Online, and more. If you'd prefer the visual spoiler versions, you can check them out in the previous articles:

White and Blue |Black and Red | Green and Multicolored | Colorless, Lands, Non-MTGO Cards

As a reminder, these lists pull cards generally based on at least one of the following criteria:

  • Has shown up in a proven, tier deck.
  • Is a popular favorite among lower tier decks.
  • May have fallen out of favor recently but still good at one point and may be good here or there.
  • Is a newer card from the last few releases that may have not had its time to shine.
  • Is a card that is close to breaking out, but hasn't found a home yet (Ashnod's Altar, for example).

It's important to note as well that while these lists are meant to cover everything as best as possible, it's highly likely that I've missed a few cards along the way. For example, during my initial collection of these lists I almost missed Desert, Ichorclaw Myr, Ichor Wellspring, and the Zuberas. If you don't see something that you feel should be in here, leave a comment at the bottom of the page. I'll make sure to add them to a small section in a revisitation piece I'll write later in the year to cover cards released in 2020.
