The_Raging_Flump's Pauper Storm


Pauper is a fun format that allows players to build decks using only commons. On Magic Online, The_Raging_Flump came up with a storm strategy powerful enough to do well in a recent Pauper Challenge. The combo: using Ravnica block bounce lands like Azorious Chancery and Dimir Aqueduct, the Flump builds up a number of spells by casting Cloud of Faeries, using Snap to return the 1/1, and drawing cards with Frantic Research.

When all is said and done, you have extra mana in your mana pool and a storm count that allows you to cast Temporal Fissure. That lets you return most of your opponent's permanents to his or her hand, and you should be able to win easily from there!
