DarkStarStorm Deckling

Howdy! My name's Paladin (or Pal), known throughout my meta as a brewer of jank. My favorite formats (in order) are Modern, Pauper, and multiplayer Commander.

"A deck being called jank is one of the best compliments a brewer can get. Often the best decks are considered janky because they were specifically engineered to beat every deck in your meta."

Emrakul, the Aeons Torn is WAY too slow for even TRON to get out. The soonest they can is by turn SEVEN, and that's by getting EVERY Urza's Tower out of their deck. The odds of that happening are not high enough to actually prepare for. Reduce your mana curve to speed up the clock of the deck if you're worried about that. The only real modern decks that run her are the ones get her out with Goryo's Vengeance, Through the Breach, or Nahiri, the Harbinger.

Take out Hivelord, Legion, and Bonescyth Slivers and replace them with the full suite of Collected Company. It's too good NOT to use. Two 3-mana slivers are better than one five mana sliver.

Take out Sorin as well. He's too slow and doesn't synergize with what you're doing well enough.

I like the Collected Company idea

Good idea there, I can take the poison ones out

I had 4 Galerider Slivers, amongst thousands of dollars of rare cards a roommate stole from me so I don't have them to put into the deck at this time.

Valid point here

Necrotic was to go up against Erza power plant decks that my shop had a lot of players using, once destroyed I could use Relic of Progenitus and I would wipe out all 3 types of lands so they couldn't get out Emakrule or how ever it's spelled. Also I used it to go against a deck that prevented me from attacking and didn't have a way to destroy permanents to prevent people from doing that.

Mana Leaks and Remands are more valuable across the myriad of matchups you'll face than Spell Pierce.

Think Twice is a terrible magic card. It nets you a card in total across the five mana you pay to play it. Deep Analysis or Divination are my personal budget options! Deep Analysis costs one mana more across both payments and nets you THREE CARDS.

Go up some Electrolyzes and down Arc Trail. The former, while it does less overall damage, draws you a card. It keeps you from being emptyhanded.

I hope you have fun! Magic is fantastic in that it's a social game as well. It's an excuse to sit down and have a talk with the person across the table and get to know them. Win or lose, you're being given an opportunity to have real conversations with people without talking over a videogame. Since you're new to magic and want to play on a budget, you should try out Pauper! It's a format consisting of NOTHING but commons. You can build even the best decks in the format for a mere 20 dollars, so you don't have to worry about facing a 600 dollar deck and losing horribly. Just because they're commons doesn't mean that the decks are weak. Just a few months ago I built a "defender tribal" deck that has infinite mana, damage, and mill combos in it! Enjoy playing magic, and I hope that my input will help you. Have a great day!
