Ok, here we go. Budget Modern.

Let me get this out of the way. I know how competitive modern is. While the hub may include competitive, I in no way intend this to mean competitive on a level like regional and higher. This is supposed to be table top working for beginners and even FNM Modern tournaments.

Now keep in mind that because modern is generally more expensive than standard I upped the price of the budget. So this deck falls between $40-$60 instead of $20-$40. So despite being roughly double the price, it's still VERY budget for Modern.

Now that that's out of the way, lets begin.

Extreme Budget Stompy. Someone introduced me to a the stompy deck earlier today and I fell in love. It's everything I love about magic when I first started. So I wanted to make my own version of an Extreme Budget Stompy Deck.

Instead of Mono-Green I went Jund colors and threw in what is a well meshed deck that can get handily out of of control. Unfortunately tap lands make it slightly slower than the Mono green version, the additional cards offered by the varying colors also makes it much more formidable and long lasting.

i would really recomend you to stay mono green if you wanna be on the stompy route... on the other hand, you could also try going Gruul zoo.

here is a not so traditional stompy list i made some time ago:

but if you are intersted in the Gruul Zoo thing, i would recomend cutting black (obviously) and cutting most of the instants and sorceryes. you should replace Magma Jet for Lightning Bolt as soon as you can. Kird Ape, Flinthoof Boar, Burning-Tree Emissary, Strangleroot Geist are budget aggresive creatures. also, going this way may also encourage you to move to a more traditional Naya zoo, suicide zoo (if you like the Become Immense + Temur Battle Rage way) or maybe Naya Burn once you feel more confortable playing the format.also, gruul manabase is not too expensive, Rootbound Crag, Karplusan Forest, (Maybe) Copperline Gorge. anyway, you should play what you find more fun

There's absolutely no reason you have to stay mono-green to go the stumpy route. I don't want to go zoo or burn either. The entire point of going jund is to go a non-traditional stompy route. Contrary to popular belief you can, in fact, reinvent the wheel.

I'd think about replacing "ruinous path" with "hero's downfall" and consider adding a couple of "tainted strike"s. If you only have to get up to 9 power before swinging, you can end games even faster then your opponents expect.

IF you want to bump up the price a little, I suggest Vraska the Unseen.
