You mention that the deck falls to combo decks. Would something such as Reclamation Sage / Broken Bond / Naturalize in sideboards?

There are clear benefits to all three of these, depending on what you need:

  • Sage is a 2/1, who under appropriate circumstances can be a decent creature. For example, if you are not up against a deck with burn aspects in it, you can always Giant Growth / Brute Force / Mutagenic Growth it for some serious power. Effectively, you are packing a combo-stopper inside of a creature that benefits from the Zoo archetype.

  • Bond allows you to hit your land drops. Perhaps you are slowed down for some reason. Perhaps you'd like to replace a land or two with more pump or more removal, and thus getting what lands you do have out earlier are all the more important. Perhaps you've gone a bit more budget and opted into lands such as Gruul Turf or are looking to optimize on your draw, so you choose scry lands such as Temple of Plenty . What Broken Bond will allow you to do is tap your land to gain the mana from it, drop your stronger land for the turn that enters tapped, then play Broken Bond to crack down on combo pieces and play the land you just returned to your hand. If you are wise, you returned a basic land so you can replay it untapped and gain an extra mana.

  • Lastly, Naturalize is just a powerful instant. Once your opponent declares their combo to start, slip in at the right moment and destroy it on the stack and watch their entire combo end.

I'd cut the crown for Lightning bolts in a heartbeat.

You could add Mutagenic Growth , Apostle's Blessing , Renegade Tactics and i personally would play 3-4 Fireblast in any mono red aggro deck

Hey my friend, such a cool deck. I know most of this is far from budget but some good tools you could use are : Yavimaya Hollow , Cavern of Souls , Primeval Titan , Survival of the Fittest , Vines of Vastwood , Sylvan Scrying , Crop Rotation , Fyndhorn Elves , Birds of Paradise , Berserk and indeed Birthing Pod or Mutagenic Growth that I see in your maybeboard. This will help you being way more consistant/fast :)

Aqueous Form x4 has been in my deck for years. This version hasn’t been tried as much yet. Inkmoth Nexus is the reason the deck is fast. Turn 1 you drop it. Turn 2 use the Mutagenic Growth since you can pay with life. If not those , the kill spells keep them at bay. I did want to replace them at first. And you may still be right. But there isn’t a forest in the deck. Let’s say I’m sticking with current color .. what then ? And I appreciate the advice and taking your time to look at it.

kaluzzay on Budget Formatless Decks

Hello everyone.

Me and my friends are trying to build ultra-budget formatless decks to play "competitively" against each other. The restriction is it cant be more expensive (based on a particular website min. price) than 15 dollars.

I started sketching some decks online based on strong cards that are also cheap or banned in other formats. For example i could use Ponder and Brainstorm and even Treasure Cruise and Hymn to Tourach .

i came up with this:

1 - UR Spells shell deck, using Thermo-Alchemist and Electrostatic Field together with Curiosity and cheap shocks/bolts, cantrips. Link -> UR Spells

2- Monoblack shell with discards, Smallpox , Pox , Shrieking Affliction and The Rack Link -> Budget Smallpox

3- UR Shell with Kiln Fiend and Nivix Cyclops Strategy. Link -> UR Kiln Fiend

4- Infect based, since we have acess to Invigorate , but the list seems too fragile and slow without room for Mutagenic Growth , even running BS and Ponder.

Ill be linking the decks ASAP here.

do you guys have any cool ideas for decks that i can come up with that are strong and fast, or maybe some weird control or combo deck would be nice too. Id like some kind of Balance deck xD
