The Pauper Gauntlet competitor #6: DelverFiend by Farfishere

The Pauper Gauntlet is coming to mtgolibrary. You can submit your Pauper brews starting August 31st right here. Please do not submit any decks yet.

Some of the deck lists of the competing decks that are pre-qualified by different means will be presented here. This is deck #6.

Deck #1 Illusory Tricks:
Deck #2: Love Train

DelverFiend is a UR aggro/combo deck that tries to go off with Kiln Fiend or Nivix Cyclops and a ton of sorceries/instants to make one or two attacks that hit the opponents for 20+ points of damage very early in the game.

There are many different builds of the deck. I interview master deck builder Deluxeicoff about the deck in this video. 

I ran that build in the first season of the Pauper Gauntlet. A year has passed by and I decided to turn to one of my other favorite brewers - Farfishere - as he recently took down a major pauper event playing DelverFiend to win the tournament.

Farfishere is most famous for making the obnoxious Time Walking deck in Modern called Taking Turns. I talked about that deck in an earlier blog post here on mtgolibrary:
