Thinking of trying Standard
Posted on Dec. 4, 2017, 3:06 a.m. by GelatinousCube
I'm thinking of trying out Standard, but I typically play Modern and Commander. I need help coming up with a low budget Standard deck that will be fun to play on Friday nights at my card shop. Since I'm asking for budget, I don't expect the deck to win a lot. I just wanna play with my friends at the shop for FNM.
You can do a budget Favorable Pirates Deck
Since Pirate decks are doing really well right now and the format is so aggressive.
Sorry, I couldn't get the URL/Link button to add the link correctly.

I've also built a deck, Disappearing Torrential Gearhulk, that I took to a FNM and did alright with. It cost around $100, but hasn't been updated in a while, but it might give you a place to start!
I also have a deck that I'm working on now that is mainly artifacts. Not sure how it is going to hold up at FNM, but it's only at about $50. I'll keep it updated as I keep play testing it! Would you like a servo with that?

Hey, perhaps give a little more description of the kind of deck you would like to play?
What's your favorite colors or color combinations?
What archetype do you prefer: aggro, midrange, combo, control, tribal?

If interested I have a few decks that are a little above 50 and below. (I like going budget). If you want to, go ahead and feel free to check them out

This is quite inexpensive, and we've been having some fun with it.
Yes, you need those.
As one of my friends says, Standard is not a poor person's game.
It's not REALLY possible to build a Budget deck that can hold its own, unless you are some kind of Genius deck builder, or you happen across a deck that hasn't yet been adopted by the Pros.
So be prepared to lose most games, and all matches, unless you have an extremely casual play group that has few Tier 1 decks.

[Strictly Better MTG on YouTube] (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCpZCNYMXJI_ptSBD3t47NOQ) is a great place to start for budget decks, and they provide a great breakdown as far as the cards they choose.
