Notes
 
You may know about affinity in modern - an artifact based deck that makes massive creatures very early on in the game. The pauper deck does a similar thing using the artifact land cycle and low costed artifacts to break the ‘affinity for artifacts' mechanic, casting cards like Myr Enforcer and Gearseeker Serpent as early as turn two. However, despite this line of play being powerful, this is not the deck's primary strategy. What you really want to do is make an incredibly huge Atog to one shot your opponent. You may think that you can just chump block but this is why the deck uses Galvanic Blast to get rid of blockers, Fling to ignore them and Temur Battle Rage to smash through anything that tries to stop the crazy big alien.

Affinity is a very powerful linear strategy in pauper but will likely never be the top deck as it can be hated out with some great sideboard cards: Ancient Grudge, Gorilla Shaman and Smash to Smithereens to name just a few. If you like artifacts and your local meta is running low on sideboard cards to stop you then affinity might just be a great choice. If you think this is the deck for you LSV recently did a video with it on the Channel Fireball youtube channel and I'm sure he can show you how to pilot this far better than I ever could!
