If you are reading this it likely means you've received feedback from me, looked at one of my decks, or have read a part of my Modern Brewer's Bible.

If you DID come here from one of my decks, be sure to keep updated on my profile, as I'm always tinkering around with new brews (especially for Modern & Commander) and almost every budget deck I make will get posted here at some point.

If you have a question about a deck, a deck you'd like to me look at, or anything related to playing on a budget for the Modern or Commander formats, I'm your guy.

If you want some help on building a list, PLEASE tell me what your budget is and what type of deck it is, (competitive, casual, gimmick etc.) in addition to anything you want it to be or want to play in it, otherwise my feedback will likely not be as helpful as I'd like it to be.

I began playing MTG in 2009 when I found that I had some friends who played the game. I started out as a kitchen table player and continued to do so until 2013 when my playgroup began to deviate away from playing casual decks, and moved on to play more competitive decks.

Since none of us really had the money to get into formats like Legacy or Standard, we all decided that we should play Modern, since many of us had cards for the format already, and the cost of getting in was pretty low.

During this time I began to dive heavily into budget deckbuilding, since it was all I could afford. However, unlike most people, I fell in love with rogue deckbuilding, as while tiered lists are great, I would have never had the cash to invest in one.

As time has passed I've moved away from trying to buy decks in MTG and have instead been heavily active on the brewing side, as many of my friends have asked me for deckbuilding help and testing.

That being said, I still play tons of Commander and Modern, whether it be at my local LGS or on untap.in

I do not have a favorite color of the MTG color pie, however I absolutely love playing Midrange and Control decks, as they match my playstyle.

Disclaimer: You need to have a premium account for this.Where you would type in the color names in the customize username boxes, you instead type in codes. (I think it's CSS)

My current username code is:

black;text-shadow:1px 1px 5px black, 2px -1px 5px lime, 0px 6px 7px #2EFE64, 2px -6px 7px black;font-family:Chiller;

Some other codes I have before are:

black;text-shadow:1px 1px 5px lime, -1px -1px 5px lime, -2px 6px 7px #2EFE64, 2px -6px 7px lime;font-family:chiller;

grey;text-shadow:1px 1px 5px purple, -1px -1px 5px purple, -2px 6px 7px #2EFE64, 2px -6px 7px purple;font-family:chiller;

black;text-shadow:1px 1px 2px lime, -1px -1px 2px lime, -2px 6px 7px #2EFE64, 2px -6px 7px lime;font-family:Impact

Feel free to use them for yourself! Hope that helped!

If you need help with how to program a style, just take one of mine and mess around with the numbers and colors.

The Modern Brewer's Bible is my personal down-to-earth guide to the Modern Format. It's goal is to create the most comprehensive guide to the format that I can for the Magic community. It is currently being written during my free time and it's chapters will be posted here as they are created.

DISCLAIMER: Below is my archive of builds and brews that either I have made, or have seen around the site and saved here for other users.

Since I do not play standard (I love the format but I hate having to change around lists and constantly having to buy new things) my #1 reccomendation is to check out the budget archives on MTGGoldfish as Saffron Olive has built tons of great lists (he also does this for modern)

jolli20

This deck is a primer for pretty much any and all mono-black strategies, including many which are budget. As mentioned in the primer, the list at the top is one that I play, and I have given examples of decks that are well within the realm of budget.

If you are looking to build on a budget yourself, feel free to go through the primer, as I've included many budget alternatives and strategies to cards.

Cheers!

#2

Gotta spread love for mono-black players, so +1 from me.

My first suggestion would be to cut out the common fetches (Evolving Wilds and Terramorphic Expanse) even though they could possibly help you with Vampire Nocturnus.

  1. Modern has some great vampire cards available to you, the most obvious being Captivating Vampire and Kalastria Highborn. This deck wants be very aggressive and you will probably want stronger vampires to play competitively.

  2. Interaction. Modern is a turn 4 format, and you are going to need discard and a sideboard to have any chance of dealing with decks like Tron and whatnot. The best options for the moment are Thoughtseize and Inquisition of Kozilek.

  3. Play 4 copies of Vampire Nocturnus, it is by far the best card in the deck, and you'll want to draw it every game.

  4. If you want a full primer on mono black decks in general, you can find mine here:

  5. A well-known deckbuilder named SaffronOlive made a great vampire list with options and whatnot a while back, you can find that here: SaffronOlive Vampire List Link

  6. If you want suggestions like cuts and whatnot, feel free to post on my wall @ Sargeras.

Said on CHAINED TO THE ......

#3

I loved playing RW Prison decks when they were a thing for a while. So I will give you what I know from playing those decks.

  1. If you are running Blood Moon, you need to up your plains count, as you want to be playing Gideons and whatnot. I would say AT LEAST 5+ plains in the maindeck, becuase all your precious duals are going to be mountains anyways.

  2. Chalice of the Void WAS the centerpiece for this deck back when infect was the real deal, but with all the tron decks now, more moons is likely the way to go. Which you should be maindecking since Spirit Guide isn't that great without really explosive plays.

  3. Since this is more midrangey, I could see why not playing Ensnaring Bridge is alright. If you do choose to go for the more prison shell, it's still out there.

  4. You might want Wrath of God or Anger of the Gods as a one-two of against decks like Elves if they are relevant.

  5. Blessed Alliance can serve as excellent sideboard if decks like bogles are played.

If you want any more suggestions, feel free to let me know.

#4

I saw this off a related deck on my mono-black primer, figured I'd pitch my 2 cents.

This might depend on your meta, but Disfigure should likely be swapped with Fatal Push (As an upgrade for a personal list, perhaps not your deck on here)

I'd up your Urborg count up to 2, just to help for consistency.

Cheers!
