Yams on A Hand for A Hand

6 hours ago

Overall this deck looks pretty solid. It reminds me a lot of 8-Rack (which you may or may not have heard about), which uses The Rack and Shrieking Affliction. Those could be 1-drops that replace Rakdos Cackler since that doesn't seem to add towards your "discard to win" strategy, especially since the Rack is splashable. The main reason you may want to keep as-is is if you don't want to be entirely dependent on the discard strategy and have a good beater.

Also, I find that Duress is very useful. Maybe replace 1-2 Despise with that or Brainbite since, although brainbite cantrips and acts as a painless budget Thoughtseize, it's rather slow and you may rather be casting Blightning or Bloodhusk Ritualist at that point.

Arian_the_Fox I made the changes you recommended however i feel that if this deck is going to be dragon focused it needs more dragons especially if i am trying to run a card like Descendants' Path. I decided to cut Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip and Whisperer of the Wilds in exchange for the mana dorks Birds of Paradise and Sylvan Caryatid. Fatal Push I feel is out of reach if this is to stay a budget deck. With Blightning gone the burn option seems to be cut from this deck. With that being the case what is your opinion of Lightning Bolt.

Imho I would suggest a bit more straight up removal, and use the black aspect of control to its full power with cards like Terminate, otherwise very good. As for individual cards, Sedraxis Specter, Blightning, Rakdos's Return, and Transgress the Mind. Thoughtseize if you can afford it. +1 from me!

Vaan on Grixis Control

Let's start with the most grixis card ever: Cruel Ultimatum, not running at least one copy is a sin. Some decks even go all in on the ultimatum, filling themselves with removal/counterspells, counting on Cruel Ultimatum to close the game.

I believe the removal suite would be great with a set of Terminates and 3 to 4 Murderous Cuts, Electrolyze and Smother are both nice removal options if you're facing lots of small creatures.

Some builds of grixis control have a bit of discard with cards like Inquisition of Kozilek, Rakdos's Return, Raven's Crime, Duress, Consult the Necrosages and Blightning, but controlling your opponent's hand and countering their spells are usually mutually exclusive.

On the card advantage side of things, Faithless Looting, Izzet Charm, Mulldrifter are good options, even Thought Scouring yourself is ok if you're running Murderous Cuts and Gurmag Anglers.

Now, the threats: Tasigur, the Golden Fang, Gurmag Angler and Delver of Secrets  Flip are the most common in this kind of deck but Enigma Drake, Sedraxis Specter, Shriekmaw and Goblin Dark-Dwellers are good options.

If you decide to run the delve cards then running some of the looting effects is also a good idea, if not then Goblin Dark-Dwellers and Enigma Drake become much better threats.

I am not shute about Sin Prodder by my self, but for me it is is the most fitting creature, I think.... shure he wount do much dmg with his ability, but its free dmg. At the moment I woult prever it over Blightning to have an hight creatue count for Claim / Fame. Not shure how many creature you have to play to make this card really worth plaing 3 to 4 timnes

I like Sin Prodder, but your overall CMC is too low to effectively utilize it. Perhaps Blightning would be a fun alternative?

rockleemyhero on Help with Modern Jund without ...

Jund is a deck that is based off of value cards and attrition. That's why you see cards like Bob and goyf, both a bargain for 2 mana that can keep the pressure on your opponents while you use cheap removal such as Lightning Bolt, Abrupt Decay, and Inquisition of Kozilek to throw wrenches in their plans and keep them on the defensive.

That being said, you can absolutely make a budget rendition of jund! Use cards such as Putrid Leech, Blightning, and Sprouting Thrinax from the original jund deck that started it all. You can use cards such as Siege-Gang Commander to top your curve off, which was actually played in some of the original builds to help finish your opponents off. Lightning Bolt and Terminate aren't too expensive and shouldnt be excluded. Even cards like Sylvan Advocate is a decent substitution for goyf. There's a derelium 2 drop that can become a 4/4 that shouldnt be missed. Also, some of the delve creatures such as Hooting Mandrills or the black one aren't bad.

No offensive to glisteneragent, but if you are playing with friends and want to make a budget version of the same play style, you can absolutely build jund. Don't let budget become an obstacle for you; you aren't taking this to the pro tour or anything. Have fun, play what you want, and one of the most fun things you can do is find creative ways to build a deck within your budget. You'll surprise yourself (and others) with the powerlevel :). Let me know if youd like budget options for a decent mana base too. Good luck!
