Ajani's Pridemate Discussion
2 days ago
RustBeltGames, if you wanted to make this deck more budget minded, you could drop the Fetch Lands, the Gavony Townships and the Temple Gardens and just run all basics. Or use Ghost Quarter for deck thinning instead of the fetches. With respect to the creatures, I was running Ajani's Pridemate before Metallic Mimic. I added the Mimic for more Human/counters synergy, but the Pridemate was also great. That leaves Auriok Champion as the last expensive piece. I suppose you could leave out the Auriok Champions but that would cause less life gain over the course of a game. If you still wanted to splash green (using Temple Garden or some other G/W dual lands) you could replace Auriok with Essence Warden. Splashing green for mainboard creatures would also open up the sideboard to other various options.

Soul Sisters is probably the most competitive deck you can play that directly obliterates Burn as an archetype. It's mono white, so the mana base is cheap, and has good matchups all across Modern and doesn't need to play narrow cards that only hit burn.
4x Soul Warden
1x Cast Out
It is basically impossible for Burn to beat Soul Sisters, the deck does well against other decks as well, and best of all IT'S CHEAP! Less than 60$ for a good Modern deck is a great place to start. Upon further investment, if you like the deck, you can make slight upgrades like Serra Ascendant, Mistveil Plains, and Archangel of Thune
This is my suggestion over playing very narrow cards that only do well against burn and not other decks, to me, it would be a waste of money to invest in such a deck.

Ajani's Pridemate seems like it would be a natural fit here, probably over Debt to the Deathless and Felidar Sovereign. I would recommend Rest for the Weary over Whitesun's Passage. Your land count also looks a little high; 24 or 25 should be plenty. A little more discard might help against combo; Inquisition of Kozilek and Thoughtseize are probably best but Duress is fine against most decks if you want to keep it budget.

Ajani's Pridemate is an excellent life gain pay off
Kitchen Finks is also very strong
The deck looks like it could use some spot removal. Path to Exile is the best option followed by a ton of other options like Valorous Stance, Condemn, Journey to Nowhere, Cast Out, Oblivion Ring, Fiend Hunter, ect

Along with what Sylvannos was saying, I can vouch for a few of the decks in that list.
Storm is relatively cheap minus the lands - if you get the base of storm the most expensive card in it will be the play set of Gifts Ungiven and then the one to two copies of Past in Flames. You could probably put the whole deck together for 50 or so dollars and just use islands and mountains. And you have a deck that's actually relatively competitive.
Mono green stompy was one of the first decks I played. Very cheap but still pretty competitive - I still have my build from two years ago.
Elves, which wasn't on his list, is also relatively cheap and still effective - anywhere from 30-50 dollars for a decent deck, and you can make it mono green so you don't have to go crazy with land and mana fixing.
Mono-red burn is good too. Very cheap, very simple but it gives that not so fun infect feel because you just kill everything your opponent has or damage them straight to the face - very uninteractive.
As I said, infect - cheap, fast, but it isn't very fun. It will win, that's all.
White weenie is also pretty good. It's a mono white life gain deck that uses Ajani's Pridemate to make a huge, hard to deal with creature. Has good protection and very hard for low tier decks to beat. An upgrade from that deck would be adding Serra Ascendant to make it not budget.

I would honestly replace Underworld Coinsmith and Kalastria Healer with Suture Priest and Kambal, Consul of Allocation. You have way more creatures than you do enchantments, plus with Suture Priest you don't have to pay mana for the effect. You might also want to look into Chalice of Life Flip, Ajani's Pridemate, Syndic of Tithes, Read the Bones, Odric, Lunarch Marshal (he doesn't give everyone extort, but he will give them flying and lifelink, which is okay because you've added Pontiff of Blight
