SynergyBuild on Ultra-Budget: Teenage Mutant Ninja Wizards

4 weeks ago

So far none of these Ultra Budgets have been very competitive in modern, considering the speed of the meta I can't imagine them working to well. I want to build a more competitive one. I do really like the idea, and some (Like the elemental fling one) were still very good. The issue was that they were around 40+ dollars, rather than 20-10 dollar price range.


I tried to make one using the Heroic keyword, building it around cantrips that target creatures (like Bandage and Defiant Strike) along with good heroic abilities like Phalanx Leader and Favored Hoplite, filling the mana curve out with Lagonna-Band Trailblazer, Fabled Hero, and Vanguard of Brimaz, and it works suprisingly well, winning turn 4-5 on average, but I did have a game with a turn 3 kill, just because of the synergy that can be acomplished with the strive mecahanic of Launch the Fleet, targetting my two Phalanx Leaders, two Vanguard of Brimaz, and a Fabled Hero to get a board of giant (3/3 & 4/4) cats, and a giant Fabled Hero (5/5 Double Strike) for a big win.

Another Idea for a super budget is a combo deck, one that uses 2x Zombie Infestation & 4x Treasure Hunt, 4x Reliquary Tower and finishing the deck with 25x Swamp and 25x Island, I will let you imagine hoe the deck wins!

Another powerful budget deck is Kithkin! They have one of the cheapest good lords with Wizened Cenn and have Ballyrush Banneret, Rustic Clachan, Goldmeadow Stalwart, and a bunch of other great tribal elements at a cheap price. That kind of deck is also able to be easily upgraded for a still small price, with cards like Knight of Meadowgrain, Honor of the Pure, Militia's Pride, and Thoughtweft Trio for not extreme prices.

An easy deck to build is mono-white "2 for 1", its a deck I built a while back around just dropping cards like Expedition Envoy, Dragon Hunter, Dryad Militant, Mardu Woe-Reaper, Savannah Lions, Elite Vanguard, etc. backing them up by using Brave the Elements, and Honor of the Pure if you want. For a cheap version, you don't need to, and even for one that runs Isamaru, Hound of Konda and Kytheon, Hero of Akros, the deck cost less than 30 dollars.


The point of the comment is that I feel that though these decks are interesting and fun to play with, if competitive decks for a low cost are required, I think more competitive decks for a cheaper (or equal) cost are possible.

In the case of this deck (similar to neg counters), it requires the opponent to be playing creatures, and also be playing slowly enough, or with out removal, for you to steal them. This deck also doesn't have any way of dealing with the graveyard, has no sideboard, can't remove creatures, enchantments, lands, or artifacts opponents control, and though the deck is slow, it doesn't have the control elements like counter spells to support it, even though it is in the colors... It also can't speed the deck up with ramp or draw even though it is in the colors! Blue/green card draw could also help with Lorescale Coatl and ramp could make Nimbus Swimmer a seriously viable option.

If you do want ramp/draw, Explore is a super cheap option. More cantrip buffs could also help with the deck consistency, and I could go on and on, but it just seems like you didn't look at the deck for play-ability, but instead based on random cards you thought would be cool. I can't help look through every card to try and make this a viable option, because in the end I don't think it is an option, against pretty much any meta modern deck, where as my Heroic deck beats Naya Burn more often than not, and can stand to fight Affinity and Death's Shadow too. It doesn't stand a chance against Tron or make other decks, but this one can't stand against pretty much any.

I'm putting lands into a separate thing because I'm currently seeing 72 cards for your mana base, so something's clearly off and I can't make any assumptions as to what's actually part of the decklist and what isn't.

A mono colored deck, especially a white one always likes Terrain Generator, in my experience. I'd probably cut Rustic Clachan for it, because it's not a particularly great combat trick and always comes into play tapped for you. Myriad Landscape is another fairly obvious suggestion for mono colored decks, cutting one plains for it. Since you'd probably enjoy manlands but don't really want to re-equip your creatures all the time, maybe try Foundry of the Consuls as well as Spawning Bed, although the former is probably strictly better for your purposes. Lastly, I want to suggest running City of Shadows as a big mana land. You should have enough token production to make this viable, but it's still kind of risky considering it doesn't produce mana on it's own. Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx is another option that at least produces mana, but you'd need two white symbols in addition to your commander to get any benefit from it and considering a lot of your deck is colorless it seems like a waste. You should probably also add the two mono white cycling lands, Secluded Steppe and Drifting Meadow, as well as Buried Ruin for some attractive options inside your mana base.

I'm confused about Terramorphic Expanse and Evolving Wilds in the decklist. It seems like it's not worth having your lands come into play tapped simply to thin out one more plains, especially considering there are so many other nonbasic lands you could play. Strip Mine is obvious, because some lands just can't be left on the table for too long (hi there, Gaea's Cradle!). For the other land it feels like New Benalia's Scry 1 is a more immediate benefit compared to having one less plains in the decklist. Windbrisk Heights is another good option, though I always feel underwhelmed by the impact of Hideaway lands.

I'll summarize the entire manabase since I have no idea what is and isn't in there:

39 Land total

1 Eiganjo Castle
1 Emeria, the Sky Ruin
1 Kjeldoran Outpost
1 Kor Haven
1 Mistveil Plains
1 Throne of the High City
1 Strip Mine
1 New Benalia
1 Terrain Generator
1 Myriad Landscape
1 Foundry of the Consuls
1 City of Shadows
1 Secluded Steppe
1 Drifting Meadow
1 Buried Ruin
24 Plains

Blighted Steppe,Daru Encampment, Eiganjo Castle, Forbidding Watchtower, Kabira Crossroads, Rustic Clachan. Are all either too slow or a wasted slot. I'd switch them out with Basic lands till you find something better.

(P.S. I messed up the formating for the hyperlink to my deck but Give it I quick glance, might give you some ideas)

Hey there!

I was wondering why you dont play more Rustic Clachans? Your mana curve is left anyways, and even if you happen to draw multiple cards to begin with, you have enough hobbits to drop them untapped nonetheless. But after a few turns, when you keep drawing clean (W), you might start hoping cards that could at least give you some power instead of plain (W). When that time arrives, more of these could help to reinforce those soldiers who make use of counters, for example. Yet good thinking, +1.

I don't know much about your budget but Goldmeadow Stalwart and Knight of Meadowgrain are worth considering.

If you have the money, Flagstones of Trokair provide no downside, and occasionally you can just play 2, and sacrifice one for free deck thinning. Cavern of Souls also helps against counterspells. Rustic Clachan could also prove beneficial.

I once designed something similar, and chuckled every time I played Thoughtweft Trio with a Basilisk Collar attached. Works nice with Cenn's Tactician too, which combos with Rustic Clachan in the late game (you won't have problems revealing kithkins early in game since you have to play quickly and drop everything you got)
Cheers!
