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.

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)

Kazuul_Bloodmane

Thanks for the card suggestion and the upvote!

I gotta say this one cool card design, might have to change the wording a bit (since I need to read into the ability) but I really do like it!

Since you asked me for help, I will give you what I can.

  1. Card choices seem poor at the moment, when building aggressive decks, you should cut out cards that cost 4cmc or above, as they are not aggressive and will clunk up your hand, regardless of how good they are. Also, cards like Blessed Alliance and Djeru's Resolve could be replaced with better cards.

  2. Land count. Any aggressive deck wants to play 19-21 lands in total, cutting the cmc down with the lands will give you fast power and efficiency, which is needed for a successful aggro deck.

  3. Honestly, there is currently a great mono-red aggro deck that you could easily merge this towards, it is very cheap and has a full article here Two Tix Red Link

  4. If you need anymore help let me know.

Lord_Of_The_Void

Thanks for the upvote!

I also really like the idea behind your suggested card, and have decided to add it under the created by users folder, thanks for contributing!

July 22, 2017 5:12 p.m.

I love mardu decks, so +1 from me. But I definitely have some suggestions.

  1. This deck seems to currently have a very confused model, on the one hand, you have Young Pyromancer and Monastery Mentor, two cards which can be very powerful given the correct deck, and deck strategies. You also hae cards like Kalitas, and Archangel, which do well in the more top-down model version of this type of deck. However, a blend of these types of decks doesn't really work, as one of them wants to be a ground pounding midrange deck which could run the Platinum Emperion combo with Madcap Experiment as has been done with cards like Nahiri, the Harbinger, and Emrakul, the Aeons Torn. You really should decide on one model or the other, and if you'd like further help with that feel free to ask.

  2. You do not run enough discard spells. Inquisition of Kozilek AND Thoughtseize are needed for decks that do not run blue in order to have a chance to beat combo decks, since you have no real combos yourself at the moment.

  3. More fetchlands. Whoever said in the comments you can only look for basic lands does not understand how fetchlands work, as you can search for any land matching the land type designated, regardless if it's a basic or not. For decks that want to play 3 or more colors consistently, you need to increase the number of fetch and shocklands available in your deck, checklands are very popular and go with these shocks to make the manabase less painful. (Dragonskull Summit is a good example of a checkland.)

  4. Card Choices. Why is archangel even in this deck? Youdont have nearly enough effect for the card to be useful and do not play an infinite combo with it such as SpikeFeeder I'd suggest Baneslayer Angel or simply moving Gideon to the mainboard.

  5. If you want anymore suggestions, be sure to tag me in a comment!

Cheers!

Thanks for the upvotes!

Negative upvotes on a deck signify that fake accounts have upvoted the deck, and thus the votes turned negative.

Said on Tron for Poor ......

#6

Also, I'd cut a land to play Sea Gate Wreckage, as often Tron loses because you just draw a land when you really need a finisher.

July 12, 2017 1:08 a.m.

Said on Tron for Poor ......

#7

I like the concept, so +1. I have some suggestions.

  1. Perilous Vault is the closest thing you can get to Oblivion Stone without paying an arm and a leg, and would probably work out great as a one-of in the mainboard. But if not it's great for sideboards too against many of the decks this deck can struggle against.

  2. I'd play Nature's Claim over Naturalize in the sideboard. The 4 life may seem like a drawback, but you are playing tron, which is the best deck in the format at top-decking finishers, which means 4 life doesn't really matter in the long run. The real reason is so you can get rid of cards like Stony Silence when you are on the draw, and not have to worry about them.

  3. Since Platinum Angel is only about $3, I think it would make a great one-of addition to the mainboard since it requires your opponents to deal with it. Also, Thopter Assembly is great at gumming up the board with Flyers.

  4. I don't know if its needed, but Firespout as the traditional sweeper played in tron, and its still very cheap.

  5. Karplusan Forest, got a needed reprint and is now only $2.5, although I'm unsure if you need it with your current set up.

  6. Banefire is 40 cents more expensive then blaze, and is uncounterable if X is 5 or more.

LastRaven69

First off, thanks for the upvote! This deck is close to getting positive again!

With tron decks that play 4 Chalice of the Void being one of the best decks in the format, lantern is pretty dead online, and is no longer played at my LGS,

Recall might seem like an okay choice, but in reality, I already have better options. Because for recall to be any good, there needs to be a board of artifacts on the board, which means my opponents deck has been working great. The other issue with recall is that I need to top-deck it for it to be useful most of the time, and lantern usually does a good job of making sure that doesn't happen.

The other main reason I don't like it is because it is just a one turn deal, and affinity already scoops to wraths and Spell Snare on important threats.

However, Engineered Explosives and Stony Silence are great sideboard cards for game 2, since I can just play them and save them with cryptic if needed.

It honestly comes down to both metagame and sideboard slots, but I can definitely see where you are coming from!
