decks for pauper magic

Three decks that I've been playing in Pauper magic (commons only)

Elves (extended):

4 Llanowar Elves
4 Boreal Druid
4 Arbor Elf
4 Nettle Sentinel
4 Essence Warden
4 Elvish Visionary
4 Gilt-Leaf Ambush
4 Lys Alana Huntmaster
4 Might of the Masses
4 Strength in Numbers
2 Elvish Branchbenders*

18 Forests

Notes: In my experience this deck does okay ~ when it wins, it wins fast. When it runs out of steam, it loses hard. As is the typical plight of balls-out aggro, I guess. The idea here is to overwhelm with Elves and Elf tokens and swing FTW with some huge pump like Might of the Masses.
*I just took out two forests and added 2 Elvish Brancbenders. I'm running 12 total one-drop mana producing elves, so I shouldn't need too much land.

Thallids (extended):

4 Thallid
4 Tukatongue Thallid
4 Thallid Shell-Dweller
4 Scatter the Seeds
4 Thallid Germinator
4 Pallid Mycoderm
4 Sprout Swarm
4 Might of the Masses
4 Fists of the Ironwood
2 Selesnya Evangel

9 Plains
13 Forests

Notes: This deck works pretty well. It's pretty resilient, and can pick up ad recover even if I lose steam a little bit. It wins pretty often, so that's cool. The idea is to swing with a bunch of Saprolings and fun guys, and sac saprolings off to Pallid Mycoderm to buff everyone. I typically can get 7-8 Saproling tokens out pretty quick, then on the turn I drop the Mycoderm its GG.
Some of my friends have suggested Sigil Blessing. I'm thinking about replacing the Might of the Masses with that.

Affinity (legacy):

4 Disciple of the Vault
4 Atog
4 Ornithopter
4 Arcbound Worker
4 Frogmite
4 Myr Enforcer
4 Thoughtcast
4 Cranial Plating
4 Chromatic Star
4 Springleaf Drum
3 Lotus Petal
1 Chromatic Orb

4 Darksteel Citadel
4 Great Furnace
4 Seat of the Synod
4 Vault of Whispers

Notes: Apparently, the rule that my friends want to use is that "if it's ever been a common, it counts as a common," which I don't necessarily agree with, but whatever. That means Ornithoper and Atog are fair game, so I'm okay with that I guess. What I like about pauper affinity is that I can make a competitive deck without owning cards like Moxen, etc. Not much to say here, it's affinity, it does what it does. Disciple + Atog, I've noticed, is pretty nuts.
