I'm obviously no expert, but certainly looks like Modern is still active:

I also found numerous local events where I live in Chicago. I'm sure being in a big city is helpful, but yeah, looks good as far as I can tell.

Background: I put together a deck this week, and it's only my 2nd-ever attempt at a legitimate competitive deck. I know it probably won't win any tournaments, but I have too many other hobbies and not looking to spend more than about $80 - I just want to not get crushed every single game lol.

Deck: Overgrowth - Tons of mana ramp in the hopes of getting Primalcrux out by Turn 3 or 4. If not, there's haste creatures Groundbreaker and Boggart for some quick damage. And Genesis Hydra that, depending on how the land and ramp worked or not, I can cast for lower (2G and 1-3 others) and try to get more ramp or some of the haste creatures out, or cast for 2G and 6 others and hopefully hit a Primalcrux. Also has Lightning Greaves to use on either ramp cards or attacking creatures (or both in the same turn!), and some drawing cards (Harmonize and Beast Whisperer) to keep things moving or if I get stuck with all lands and mana ramps.

Questions: In modern you pretty much have to win by like turn 4 or 5 though, right? (assuming neither running control). Or can it get to 5-8? Been years since I went to a tournament. Turn 4-5, I feel like this deck sometimes rolls, sometimes not. Do you have any suggestions for cards to put in or cards to take out? Any issues I might run into facing other common Modern decks? If you suggest an expensive card, if possible perhaps also suggest a similar more budget-minded one :)

Please let me know what you think! Thank you!
