lithium142 Deckling

Hello starshine! I hope you're doing spectacular today!

You're probably here for one of 2 reasons. You're either coming from one of the decks in my budget series because, let's face it, they're pretty awesome! Or, I just posted something weird. like.. REALLY weird! have you seen my descent deck? doesn't get much jankier than that! XD

Whatever you're here for, I hope you can find at least a few decks that will interest you, or if you have any questions (or ideas) about the deck series, feel free to message me or leave a post on the ol' profile. I usually get back to people in a day or two, but try to bear in mind that I am busy with work and classes 7 days a week.

A lil bit about me

I am someone who likes to draw the line between a "good" deck, and a competitive one. I see them as two completely different things, and some of the best, most creative decks I've seen have not been competitive by any means. However, they are still very functional, very powerful, and overall, very good decks.

So, TLDR... I'm a deck-brewer. It's my favorite part of the game. theorizing, testing synergies, clocking different methods of aggro.. I love all of it. That's probably why i'm becoming more interested in limited formats than sanctioned ones.

well.. that, and sanctioned formats are stupidly overpriced to get into these days. I started extended in 2006 for $30 and made it competitive for about $100. Now modern costs at least $500 to be competitive. but more realistically, it will be closer to $1000. Unfortunately standard is no better, and extended doesn't even exist anymore. So now you understand why I've taken on the challenge of making strong budget builds which seem to be in all too short a supply these days.

Favorite format: Modern

Currently playing:

mono green stompy (mdn)

mono green tron (ppr)

B/G nic-fit (lgc)

Rhys, the redeemed (edh)

Favorite deck: Necro-Jar (the banned standard deck), and legacy nic-fit

favorite card: idk... Storm Crow?

Preferred colors: >>>>

If you ever want me to check out a deck or idea, I'm just a message away.

I thought of another possibility. Since you like infinite mana, you could just instakill with Blue Sun's Zenith

I'll do some research for you. This is a deck style I've tried to work with before. I like Kraken Hatchling. A couple copies of Spellskite or Kira, the Great Glass-Spinner would make your endgame only stoppable via a board wipe.

I'll look into it more later, but Vapor Snag, Cryptic Command, and I comepletely forgot about Reality Shift.

I always enjoy these ideas and people trying to crack modern in two.

The problem you run into with this is that you have a lot of do nothing cards at every stage of the game. You need to look at cheap ways of getting counters on your enchantment, and reliable ways of pulling your combo. Deck stacking is awesome, but you have no way to keep yourself alive. You need counters, or bounce spells, or at the very least, Thing in the Ice  Flip.
