Standard Pauper

Last night’s Friday Night Magic Group got to choose what next weeks format will be and I think they made an excellent choice with Standard Pauper.¬†

Entry fee will be as normal, $5.00 or $7.00 and you get 1 booster pack.

Registration begins at 5pm on Friday the 20th. Play will begin between 6 and 6:30.

Format Guidelines from Wizard’s. Note that for next week, along with the rules below, only cards that are currently in standard will be allowed.

n this Magic Online format, all cards must have been printed at common rarity in a Magic Online set or product. Common promo cards are only legal if the card meets that qualification.

If a common version of a particular card was ever released on Magic Online, any version of that card is legal in this format.

Example: Counterspell was a common card in Seventh Edition Core Set online. Counterspell was reprinted in Masters Edition II with an uncommon expansion symbol. Both versions of the card can now be used in pauper.

Other than that, the usual rules for constructed decks apply:

  • Minimum of 60 cards in the main deck
    (There is no maximum size for main decks)
  • Up to 15 cards in your sideboard, if used
  • No more than 4 of any individual card in the main deck and sideboard combined (with the exception of basic lands)


Revised: January 18, 2016

The following cards are banned in this format:

First Recordings

This morning, Nathan, Sean, Devin, and myself sat down and played our first 2 games of Pandemic Legacy. We broadcasted both game sessions on Google Hangouts. We wanted¬†test a very rough camera setup for future recording. We used the camera on my laptop as we don’t yet have a digital camera, yet. We had a lot of fun playing the game and while the quality of the recording wasn’t all that great, I will be editing the videos and getting them uploaded to the Multiverse YouTube page in the near future.

We are looking forward to recording and broadcasting more of our games from the shop. I’m shopping around for a good camera to really get us started with.


I am looking for some playtesting volunteers for Saturday March 12th.

I will be running a D&D 5E combat encounter for 2-4 characters of 1-2 level. I’d like to run the encounter for multiple groups over the day. I will have pregen characters available. Each session should take 20-30 mins at most.
