Don't Be a Couch Potato

Modern* Budget W/B (Orzhov)



Just one of my three decks. Fairs well at FNM, especially considering it is super-budgeted.

I recommend 4x Godless Shrine 2x Obzedat, Ghost Council 2 mas Soldier of the Pantheon 2x Whip of Erebos Swap out a few bad creatures for Sin Collector Add some number of Hero's Downfall , Read the Bones , and Thoughtseize

@valendras I agree with all your suggestions. I think this deck could benefit from a lot of things being removed and others being added. But remember it's a budget deck.

He could definitely do Read the Bones and Sin Collector s though.

Shrines are 50+ for the play set.

Thoughtseize is around 20-25 each depending where you get them. Hero's Downfall has gone up.

Thank you for the suggestions @valendras and @Cleric. What should I remove for the budgeted cards you mentioned? I'm at a loss to say the least.

Devout Invocation is a 7drop....to expensive. Take it out.Lord of the Void and Necropolis Regent Come out for the same reason. That opens 3 spots for 3xRead the Bones Replace Serra Angel 's with Sin Collector and you're starting to get somewhere. Your CMC will drop, which will make the deck run smoother

@valendras, even with Crypt Ghast you think they are still too much? And what should I put a Whip of Erebos in for? (Or two).

You're counting on having a turn 4 Crypt Ghast which, even as a 3 of, isn't always going to happen. Also, even if you get those cards out early, they can still just be hit with a removal spell. Chances are a 7 drop creature will only get in 1 hit before it's answered. Draw power, and discard spells are REALLY powerful. I'd personally rather resolve a Sin Collector then get 7 damage in any day. The only creature you have right now that I would bother to pay 4 mana to whip back is Lifebane Zombie because of A) 3 damage in thanks to intimidate, and B) Enters the battlefield effect. This is why I think you need an Obzedat, Ghost Council

Okay, thank you so much for the advice! I'm changing it up as we speak. I'm trying hard to get my hands on an Obzedat, Ghost Council , but of course nobody wants to trade away such an awesome card.
