Friday 27th July 2012 sees the debut of Modern Pauper at FNM relax. We wanted to give people every chance to play the cards that they have bought in a relaxed environment and Modern Pauper does just that.
For those that don’t know Pauper is a very popular format from Magic the Gathering online (MTGO) and allows the playing of common cards only. As it is modern pauper the cards need to have been printed in the modern card format with a black rarity symbol. So if you have a common card in the modern format of MTG cards you can play it, the only exceptions being those commons on the modern banned list which are – Ponder, Preordain, Vault of Whispers, Seat of the Synod, Tree of Tales, Ancient Den, Rite of Flame and Wild Nacatl.
Rather than look at the deck list I am going to play at this point I thought it would make a difference to look at the top ten common cards in the modern format to see if this helps give you ideas for a deck to play. As all these cards are commons they should be easy enough to pick up even if you don’t already have them.
