@TheMaggotPrince Seems like an ok card depending on your meta. Being a primer, I've opted not to include narrow answers.

Budget replacements for Guile and Rack include Crystal Ball, Darksteel Pendant, Lifecrafter's Bestiary, and Seer's Lantern. Bestiary is honestly almost good enough to make the cut in my build. The rest are at about the same power level, and you'll have to play around with them to figure out which suits your deck best.

I like what I see so far. The land count seems right. I see many staples that I'd like to see. I'd like to see Path of Ancestry, Darksteel Pendant, Reclaim, Entourage of Trest, Mutant's Prey, Hunt the Weak, the two green cycle lands, Explorer's Scope, Village Elder, Crown-Hunter Hireling.

To make room I would look at the following to take out: Sizzle, Welder Automaton, Wrap in Vigor, Withstand Death, Blinding Fog, Jolrael's Favor, Nature's Panoply, Might Beyond Reason, Saddleback Lagac, Dragonscale Boon.

It's always nice to see new faces in our community :) Welcome!

Vedalken Orrery or Leyline of Anticipation would be great for this deck, Lens of Clarity or Darksteel Pendant maybe helpful

omg I just built my Yennett deck for Odd-Tribal and I did not even know Penance was a thing! I love it! I don't forget about Scry. I put a Darksteel Pendant in my deck as well as Crystal Ball but anything that lets you Scry at least gives you the option of bottoming before attack.

Oh Hell Yeah! I love me some ninja tech. I don't quite know what you have planned but don't forget Sakashima's Student although it might hurt the budget. Another card worth looking at, if you can squeeze it in your 50$ budget, is Duplicant because colorless exile on a stick? Yes, please. It's cc allows for some nice burn when ripping it off the top with our commander.

Now for some sweet budget tech. Sandstone Oracle is a flying threat that refills our hand and hits the table for 7 damage off the top of our library. I know Steel Hellkite is a popular budget option to deal with enchantments and artifacts in Grixis but I would give Meteor Golem a try. I find the dragon often eats removal on sight or gets chumped which prevents you from dealing with the problematic permanent you absolutely need to destroy. The golem circumvents all that with it's ETB ability. It's clean and recurrable.

Lim-Dul's Vault, Shadows of the Past, Read the Bones and Cryptic Annelid have a home here. Other interesting options include Mystic Speculation, Darksteel Pendant and Sentinel Totem which doubles as GY hate. Finally I would also consider Prognostic Sphinx, Conundrum Sphinx and Arbiter of the Ideal.

Anyway man. I'm looking forward to the build and video!

@Padbras Great questions. First off, let me say this: Xenagos, God of Revels is more consistent than Mayael the Anima. The deck wins faster and more reliably. Mayael is more for the kind of player who values the experience of playing as much as (or more than) they value winning. Some of the best Magic memories I have are flipping those top five cards, one at a time, just hoping to turn over that clutch blocker. That degree of randomness isn't for everybody, but it's how I most enjoy the game.

As to your follow up question, yes, I would definitely recommend running Mayael on a budget. Most of the money cards I run are for 1) mana base consistency and 2) topdeck filtering. Those make the deck more reliable, but they're not necessary for it to be functional. Also, the fatties you choose to run are easily tuned to any budget. There are plenty of sub-optimal inclusions that can fill the role of expensive cards and still make a splash on the board. Here's some easy changes you can make to slash hundreds of dollars off the price tag:

Alpha duals ==> Battlebond duals. This is a no brainer. Battlebond duals are almost as good, especially if you cut fetch lands.

Fetch lands ==> Pain lands, Larwyn filter lands, and Odyssey filter lands. Filters are just a notch below fetches for mana consistency. Pain lands are a notch below that.

Ancient Tomb, Strip Mine, Wasteland ==> Basic lands. You'll need to run a few more basics without top-tier lands at your disposal. Trim the pricey colorless mana.

Mirri's Guile, Sylvan Library, Sensei's Divining Top, Scroll Rack ==> Crystal Ball, Darksteel Pendant, Lifecrafter's Bestiary, Seer's Lantern. It's still really important to have some topdeck filtering. These will get the job done.

Rings of Brighthearth ==> Illusionist's Bracers

Tooth and Nail ==> Another 5+ power creature

Crucible of Worlds, Mana Crypt ==> Any other mana rock. Basically the same effect, just slower and more fragile.

Avacyn, Angel of Hope ==> Spearbreaker Behemoth

Balefire Dragon ==> Steel Hellkite

Kozilek, Butcher of Truth, Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre ==> Artisan of Kozilek, It That Betrays

Hope that helps!
