Tron for Poor Orphans

Modern Budget RG (Gruul) Tron



Hey you! Yeah you! Do you live in a cardboard box outside of your local gas station? Do you enjoy Magic the Gathering? Well, do I have the deck for you!

I just got back into MTG recently and my friends showed me EDH and I made a few decks to play with. I enjoyed that but, I wanted something more competitive, like modern. I had all of the staples for a Mono-Red Burn deck, so I used that for a few weeks. That was okay and all, but playing RDW is so boring, your games are always the same, and each game lasts 5 minutes. Now, being a highschooler that isn't working means I cant buy a tier one Modern deck obviously, so I had to compromise. This is my attempt at a budget tron that I will consistently play at FNM and other Modern events, while slowly upgrading it and turning it into a tier 1 Tron deck! So enjoy the journey!

I'm not quite following, if you mean $7 for one set then that is correct but otherwise you must be mistaken.

How did you manage to swing that considering each card is about $1.70?

Livingham Honestly I don't know now that I'm looking at TCGPlayer's prices, I managed to buy 6 of them for 0.25$ (lightly played). But they show them for under a dollar, at least for the chronicles version.

Only thing I can see is maybe swapping out Explore for Exploration, but that's really expensive. Really neat deck!

TheSpiritombEnthusiast, Thanks! When first making this tron deck I considered Exploration, but I realized the card draw from Explore is what really made it the better option. That being said Exploration could be a fun interesting upgrade!

I admire your cause. I see all of these """"""""""budget""""""""""" $800 decks and furrow my brow. This looks pretty effective. Budget decks are the best!

prybarfacefuck, in total ive spent like 50$ on this deck and it consistently goes 2-2 (sometimes 1-3 or 3-1) at FNM, and that's pretty good considering everyone at my LGS just net decks top tier decks.
