Hmmm I don't think a 161 dollar deck is considered 'budget'? Especially if none of that value comes from lands.

Uri, $141 is not that bad. I mean, for something that's not RDW and is competitive, I'd say that's budget. There can be much cheaper decks, but if you want to win, then anywhere between $100-150 is fine and could still be considered budget. Keep in mind that budget is relative and is dependent on the format.

$150 for a solid modern deck that can put up results is frankly amazing.

freakingShane 161$ is quite a lot actually. In most decks, 40 to 60% of all the card value rests in the lands (because people like to use pain, shock, filter and fetch lands) This deck contains no special lands at all (beside 2x Ally encampment), so in comparison to other decks, it would be around 263$ - 322$.

ChiefBell: thanks, I will take that as a compliment, Chief... And it really delivers... it's kinda weak against burn decks though.
Uri: Hi Uri, thanks for commenting. This deck started (and still kinda is) budget. Also you don't need other lands here, and the Ally Encampment are just for fun. They could be as well be Plains. Mono colored decks should not be running non-basic lands to succeed (at least under my years playing and building). Also, the important thing, this deck ISN'T like most decks, as you are saying, so please don't make a "$263-$322" comparison. This deck's price tag is the listed one ;)
Aaaand going to the technical part: this deck delivers very good results, and could be improved by adding some control o recursion elements... but changing the lands wouldn't help in the direction of improvement. Best variation could be splash of blue, given the case. Also Gideon, Ally of Zendikar is not mandatory in the deck, you could make it cheaper there.
I hope you understand my point hahaha
SwaggyMcSwagglepants: I wrote your name with their blood... nice ceremony, lots of people crying, and many dead onions. Let's hope we can keep sacrificing them! Cheers!!

Definately Eerie Interlude over Ghostway, the former lets you choose targets so you can avoid loosing any tokens you'de made from Gideon, Ally of Zendikar. Quite situational but it is worth it just in case, in my oppinion. (And aparently less than a tenth of the price.)

How is under 400 not budget? Also how does this deck win a match of magic. You know infect can win on turn two!

Pownu: Much obliged! Thanks for the love... you got yourself an onion sacrificed!
AnonymouSAvatar: Yes... and no! As you said, it's very situational. Ghostway bypasses any protection you might have gotten with Kabira Evangel, and that's the only reason I keep it. Eerie Interlude is indeed best suited for work around the Tokens (now with 2 token-productors may be worth its slot... and for less than a tenth of the price!).
Worst part is that I have the costly Ghostways already... so you can imagine that I want to use them hahahah
EmrakultheGamingBeast: I am aware that there are lousy T2-Infect decks around. There is just one infect deck (' Virulent Infestation) in my meta (T3-T4 win), and usually it's 50/50 chance against that deck; either I whoop his ass ASAP by T3-T4, or it gets me first in T3.
And, actually answering your question, the way to prevent infect-decks from winning is by using Path to Exile and Oblivion Ring. Or Cloudshift a Kabira Evangel, giving color protection to something and blocking.
freakingShane: Yeah! I kinda like that extra part... it'll come back in a couple of days hahaha

braderus9: There shan't, indeed. Thanks for the vote man ;)
Tanneth: Glad this deck could help you. If you need feedback sometime, feel free to ask! Cheers
Ys_: I also love those sick synergies hahah, it's pretty cool to see the deck escalate when the opponents don't do something between T2 and T4 hahah
Cheers and thanks for the vote!
