This is not a deck, but rather a list of useful cards to consider when deck-building on a budget. Included cards are easily affordable, and effective in either multiplayer or one-on-one (budget limitations were stretched to include cards like Phyrexian Obliterator and Demonic Tutor which are dominant at their respective CMCs). Most included cards are not commonly seen in Tournament-Tier play, except perhaps in the Pauper format, but are nonetheless worthy in casual games. There are, of course, those powerful and commonly utilized staples such as Murderous Cut and Dismember which are still affordable despite their competitive effectiveness.

This is not a comprehensive list, and is not intended to include all the cards which meet the criterion of "good but cheap." It is purposed to include cards which are generally functional and efficient without complicated contextual game-states or combinations.

All main-board cards are Vintage legal.

All sideboard cards are Vintage legal, and are solid options when side-boarding against a broad field of potential deck archetypes.
