So my card shop randomly announced a T2 pauper tournament for this Saturday....

My first immediate thought was "Dang, mono black is going to DOMINATE that....", so I built mono black aggro which currently, note that this is a rough draft, looks like this:

// Deck file for Magic Workstation (http://www.magicworkstation.com)
// Bauper - TheGODehT

// Lands
24 [M10] Swamp (4)

// Creatures
4 [ZEN] Vampire Lacerator
4 [ZEN] Guul Draz Vampire
4 [M10] Child of Night
4 [M10] Vampire Aristocrat
4 [M10] Looming Shade
4 [ZEN] Crypt Ripper

// Spells
4 [ZEN] Disfigure
4 [M10] Sign in Blood
4 [M10] Tendrils of Corruption

// Sideboard
SB: 3 [ALA] Bone Splinters
SB: 4 [M10] Mind Rot
SB: 4 [M10] Duress
SB: 4 [ZEN] Hideous End

A few cards that were in it but were later taken out included vampire's bite and soul stair expedition.



Then I looked at a constructed t2 boros bushwhacker deck and realized that most of the ridiculous cards in the deck are common. I then decided that I liked this deck more than mono black: (This is also in rough draft, but less rough than mono black)

// Deck file for Magic Workstation (http://www.magicworkstation.com)
// Boros Aggro (Pauper) - TheGODehT

// Lands
7 [9E] Plains (1)
5 [CST] Mountain (2)
4 [10E] Terramorphic Expanse
4 [ZEN] Teetering Peaks
4 [ALA] Naya Panorama

// Creatures
4 [ZEN] Plated Geopede
4 [ZEN] Kor Skyfisher
4 [ZEN] Steppe Lynx
4 [ARB] Cerodon Yearling

// Spells
4 [CFX] Quenchable Fire
4 [ZEN] Zektar Shrine Expedition
4 [ALA] Oblivion Ring
4 [ZEN] Burst Lightning
4 [R] Lightning Bolt

// Sideboard
SB: 4 [M10] Soul Warden
SB: 4 [ZEN] Journey to Nowhere
SB: 4 [M10] Blinding Mage
SB: 3 [ZEN] Goblin Bushwhacker


So which deck do you all think I should run on Saturday? What are the reasons and what card changes should I make to these lists to make them better for this tournament? Any help and/or comments is/are appreciated.

It just doesn't seems as solid when you can't search for little guys along with him. What would you suggest putting him in for? I basically took him out for Cerodon Yearling which I feel is a very very solid card in this format.... kind of like a burst lightning that has to be dealt with eventually xD
