Dragons of Tarkir Standard Pauper Set Review (with Bonus Sealed League videos)

Spoilers for Dragons of Tarkir have officially completed – time to go rate some commons! But first, some bonus footage of the Standard Pauper Sealed League, hosted by Gwyned.

Click on the picture below for the video playlist


I enjoyed the league a ton and hope that there will be more in the future!


A new labeling system is being implemented!  Changed from a 5-Star system to alphabetical grades as they are much easier to comprehend (at least for me :P)

A = Bad-Ass // Build-Around
(Treasure Cruise, Grey Merchant of Asphodel, Temur Battle Rage)

B = Playable
(Akroan Skyguard, Nullify, Read the Bones, Lightning Strike, Nessian Asp)

C = Borderline Playable
(Kill Shot, Negate, Bolt of Keranos, Invasive Species)

D = Borderline Unplayable
(Erase, Cancel, Feast of Dreams, Scouring Sands, Naturalize)

F = Strictly Unplayable
