Essentially, they lay out four positive reasons why Pauper could be a good Grand Prix format:
- The format has a healthy amount of diversity, with a wide variety of decks.
- The format is cheap, making it accessible to just about anyone.
- The format is tons of fun to play.
- The format has the potential to sell what are otherwise undesirable cards.
Interestingly enough, these are the exact SAME reasons myself and others have used to argue that Standard Pauper should be an official, sanctioned format on Magic Online. Granted, it is certainly less diverse than Classic Pauper, but makes up for that by being a rotating format. But otherwise, I would argue these arguments apply just as well to Standard Pauper as they do to Classic Pauper.
I wonder what it would take to make Wizards reevaluate the viability of Standard Pauper as a supported format?
