Ali from Cairo and Fortune Thief are both solid cards (and so is the modern staple Worship), so I will add them. Thanks!

Smoke, however, is actually a stax card, and so it, and other cards like it such as Meekstone, don't fit too well on this list.

Some of those lists won't be budget, broski lol. I mean, I suppose you can come close to budget...

I remember playing a / deck that used a ton of mana dorks like Llanowar Elves, Tinder Wall, and so forth that ramped into Force of Nature and Shivan Dragon. I had Lightning Bolt and Fireball in there too. I also played a / Tempo/Control build that used burn spells, Prodigal Sorcerer, Counterspell, Force of Will, Forbid, etc. It was a Delver deck before Delver! I also played a straight up burn deck with Jackal Pup, Ball Lightning, Chain Lightning, Lightning Bolt, etc.

I had a friend of mine that played a mean / control deck that used discard like Hymn to Tourach, Hypnotic Specter, and counter magic. I had another friend that played a / control deck of sorts that ran Ali from Cairo, Forcefield, Mishra's Factory, burn spells, and counter magic.

White weenie was popular back then with Meekstone, Savannah Lions, etc. That'd be a neat budget deck. Elves was also very good back then.

I hope this gives you some ideas, mate!
