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)

You can check them out at this link MTGGoldfish Budget Archive

Below are some modern primers that I have put together, they give full and in-depth explanations about the type of deck being primed.

It's no coffers, but it is budget, and if it were to be slotted in here it would not be the worst.

Thanks for the suggestion, forgot to put that one in. I'll probably slot it in on the upgrades

May 22, 2018 10:10 p.m.

I'm not too big on standard, but I can already tell you want to be playing vehicles, Aethersphere Harvester and maybe Heart of Kiran seems like a good fit here. They have synergy with Night Market Lookout and are evasive threats.

Dark Bargain and Raiders' Wake seem really bad here.

I personally like Gonti, Lord of Luxury, as you get access to spells in your opponent's deck. You could maybe even play Yargle, Glutton of Urborg if the board gets cleared.

Conditional discard should be in the sideboard. You want to be mainboarding removal, it's what your color does best.

Vraska's Contempt would be good eventually

Since you commented on the primer, I figured I'd send you some love and suggestions, so +1 from me.

Here's my two cents.

  1. I don't know what your budget is, but I'll go as cheap as I can suggestion-wise. My first suggestion would be to find a place to put in Gifted Aetherborn, as it has pretty much become the all-star two-drop of mono-black. A playset of them will easily make your deck have a strong presence against aggressive decks. I'd cut Grim Haruspex becuase while I understand the synergy with Rite of Belzenlok, it really doesn't do well in your three drop slot at all.

  2. Cut Rite of Belzenlok and likely Squelching Leeches for either Lashwrithe or Desecration Demon (Maybe even Erebos's Titan) You really do want 4 drops that win you the game the turn after you get them.

  3. Cut Skirsdag High Priest, the fact that you need a total of three creatures on the board for him to work is pretty ridiculous, given how you want to be winning with Gray Merchant of Asphodel as the top of your curve. I'd seek out either a better two-drop or perhaps a 3-drop like Nyxathid to go in it's place.

  4. Guul Draz Vampire wants to be in a more aggressive deck than this one, I'd probably swap this card out for either a two-drop or removal/discard. As it won't hold up well against most of the decks you'd play at an FNM or something.

  5. Duress is the ultimate budget sideboard card for black players to use for noncreature matchups.

  6. I'd increase land count to make hitting 4-5 mana more consistent.

  7. I know you took a look at the primer, but if you want to look at a more budget list that's closer to what you'd be looking for, I have one here:

First off, thanks for the upvote! I really appreciate it.

While I absolutely love our new modern Cabal Coffers, I really think it just wastes away it's life on the board. I've been playing Mono-black for years now, and I have always found that when you play Liliana of the Veil, pretty much anything you play above 4 cmc looks like discard fodder because that's what will sit in your hand when you get there. Gary is an exception because he just wins games by getting played.

Also, with the amount of black mana symbol requirements this deck has, it becomes difficult to put in cards like Stronghold because I never want it in my hand until at least turn 3-4; and by that point I just want gas, not more swamps.

There also comes a point where we can just cast all our spells we draw anyway, and by that point, ramping to absurd amounts doesn't change much of anything. However, the card could be sweet in something like Death Cloud. I'll be sure to add it to the primer.
