Fate Unraveler is also really great synergy with Dark Deal and Collective Defiance , jus’ sayin’!

Step 1, playing on a budget- plan your sideboard and think about matchups.

Right now, all the wraths give you a great creatures matchup, but you are dead to combo due to a lack of interaction, control and midrange if they can outvalue you, while you risk sitting there while burn bolts you in the face.

Fortunately, there are specific cards for each of those which you can pick and more general answers you can play to fill the gaps. Look at other decks sideboards, and see whats both cheap and will fix things.

Lightning Helix is a stock card for these kind of decks, it kills a creature and gets your life total up. 'and gain life' is really good for budget control.

You will want a way to handle card advantage.

Nahiri's Wrath points towards discard; discard draw and draw discard both work really well. Collective Defiance and Incendiary Command are worth knowing about, as they are also do other things.

Scry/filtering will help- if you are considering something like Oblivion Ring , check for things like Prison Realm to consider the trade-off.

Rule of Law does a good job slowing things down, but you will want more than four ways to slow your opponent down to '1 thing a turn' for consistancy unless you are doing other things to slow your foe. Deafening Silence is an interesting alternative, that is currently in-print.

Deafening Clarion should also be cheap when it rotates out of standard, and if you run incidental tokens or creatures that draw cards, the 'and lifelink' becomes very relevant.

Miracles are cool, but they basically mandate Opt in modern and stretching to three colours in any non-tribal setup kills budget very fast. See whether you are happy with whats on offer in red/white before making a decision.

I think Skred Boros Reckoner sound like a good finisher on top of their normal utility. The whip may be the slower or rakdos return. I would board the charm. How budget is this build if you don’t mind me asking? Fetchs can grab snow-covered lands and you also have the new MH basic fetchs. Mutavault would also gain the tribal buffs. All in all, some deck manipulation would help most other tribes have card draw if nothing else. Collective Defiance might work too cause it has a lot of options

Okay, the easyest ways to upgrade this deck are:

Cut Cartouche of Ambition , Trial of Zeal , Hungry Flames , Magma Spray , Festering Mummy , 1 Plague Belcher , Shamble Back and Collective Defiance .

This frees up fourteen slots.

To fill them I would add:

4x Undead Augur

4x Inquisition of Kozilek

4x Lightning Bolt

2x Cryptbreaker

Other (expensive) options:

Creatures

Gravecrawler is great, but after it spiked, it might be a little to expensive. If you ever do add Gravecrawler , Carrion Feeder is insane. Tidehollow Sculler is one of the best zombies, but without expensive lands, it might not be the right fit.

Removal

Fatal Push is one of the best removal spells in decks that can reliably turn revolt on, usually done by using fetchlands like Bloodstained Mire .

Disruption

Thoughtseize : Although you probably don't want to play Inquisition, Sculler and Thoughtseize , they are all good cards. Blood Moon compleatly shuts down some decks, while mostly leaving red decks intact. Leyline of the Void is A+ Sideboard Material, and is always a good cards to play in the 15.

Lands

Bloodstained Mire , Polluted Delta , Blackcleave Cliffs and Blood Crypt are all staples of R/B manabases, because of the fetchlands ability to fetch Blood Crypt . Because of this, they are at a crazy price right now, but they are the best.

Other options:

Liliana, the Last Hope and Liliana Vess are incredibly powerful cards, and sticking to the theme, Liliana, Untouched By Death has some synergy :)

Ziusdra, I'm sorry but I must disagree with Lightning Bolt as a powerful Signature Spell for a couple of reasons.

  • It requires your Oathbreaker to be out on the field. This is a hefty requirement to use an Instant.

  • Paying for 3 damage is great. Paying is okay. Paying is insane. Paying is so laughable that it'd never be cast. After the first two castings, it loses it's value.

I made an Oathbreaker deck that's designed to be budget and runs Jaya Ballard with Collective Defiance because she can cast it immediately after coming out thanks to her +1, it scales with mana, and it is very flexible in it's use; Aka utility.

Here is the deck Budget Oathbreaker - Jaya Ballard if you'd like to take a look at it. It's one of five mono-colored decks. I just made a post about it in the Oathbreaker thread I started.


Aminatou's Game

Instant

Choose one -

Return target permanent to the top of it's owner's library. If it was a permanent you owned, scry 3.

Fateseal 3.

Entwine: Pay 2 life or discard a land.

Let's play hide and seek. Only I hide your future and you seek out madness.


I'd actually like to see another Aminatou . She's extremely interesting and I wonder how she would have acted in WAR. She obviously would have never shown up, because she would have seen her own future there and decide to merely not Planeswalk. But let's assume she had?

Make her a Mythic level Planeswalker so that she gets access to all three abilities and has a static ability on top of it :)

Nekusar, the Mindrazer is not modern legal. Fortunately, there are other critters that do what he does: Kederekt Parasite and Fate Unraveler . If you add both of these, you can make drawing cards very painful for the opponent.

I think the flexibility of Collective Defiance would make it better than Molten Psyche , but that's just my opinion.

And I think Quest for Pure Flame would work well with this kind of strategy, since it could come down early, and activate as the enchantments ping the opponent, and be used to kill the opponent when you make them draw a bunch of cards, with Cerebral Vortex or Runeflare Trap or whatever.

Waste Not with the Sire is awesome. Better keep people drawing cards tho. Dark Deal , Burning Inquiry and Collective Defiance are in your colors. Blue offers Jace's Archivist , Windfall and Magus of the Jar .
