This deck uses Axebane Guardian and Freed from the Real to gain infinite mana. You then use this mana to either put a Laboratory Maniac from your hand on the battlefield and draw your library with Blue Sun's Zenith to draw your library and win the game. Or you can use a Fireball to shoot at your opponent's face. You can also use a Genesis Wave to get your whole library on the battlefield. This deck is based off of a deck created by PrestonRush So you may wanna go check this one out I'm going to build a wall


I made the deck even lower by replacing Collected Company with Commune with Nature also replaced Fireball with Banefire base on my LGS.

Found this deck link on PrestonRush's page for I'm going to build a wall.

I love me a good budget deck, and I will say kudos and +1 on this one. I have myself a defender deck as well and they are just good ol' fun and don't break the bank. If I may make a suggestion or two(to help with budget as well as efficiency)) I would drop Genesis Wave and Blue Sun's Zenith down to one copy and that would free up 3 spots that I would use to make Drift of Phantasms a 4-of because, not only can it tutor for either of your infinite mana combo pieces, but due to the X cost for Genesis and Blue Sun, you can tutor for them with Drift as well. This also leaves you with one more spot to either add another piece of disruption or even another Banefire to increase your chance of drawing it.

Well done!!!

Bluefire016 I agree with what you are saying, but I think that I would prefer to drop Genesis Wave to one being that it is about $7.00 and is not really the main combo I want to get going. I would still like to keep three of Blue Sun's Zenith in here out of the possibility of them countering it. I will still have more backup.

Hamster2558, that does make sense, never hurts to have spare spells against pesky counter-magic. I've been thinking about how I want to do it, and Genesis Wave into Laboratory Maniac and Azami, Lady of Scrolls is gonna be my main win-con with Blue Sun's Zenith as my backup.

That's the best part about Magic, versatility.

Why not use Counterspell or Dissipate instead of Mana Leak? That way if an opponent does have it'll still be countered. I do enjoy the deck though. Always have to love infinite mana and mana dorks!

HunterClaise-Counterspell is not modern legal but it would be better. Dissipate is too high costing in modern for a counterspell. manaleak is cheap and allows me to use more mana on my turn and still gets the job done most of the time.

you could target your opponent with Genesis Wave, Blue Sun's Zenith to, that way they'll mill them selve next turn (if youre using genesis wave).

genesis wave is also very bad bcuz every wincon isnt without a permanent. so you would send every wincon to your graveyard.

Sterkemats-Thanks for the suggestion. I should not just have a Genesis Wave in here if it will not help me win and just put combo in the graveyard. So I am also putting in Azami, Lady of Scrolls for another alt win-con
