XxI-love-sliversxX on best budget deck for modern

try replacing Ghitu Lavarunner with Blistercoil Weird because it's almost like more swiftspears

NoopyNolife Blistercoil Weird can be untapped and serve as a blocker if things go south, and Soul-Scar Mage turns any burn spells into permanent damage. The ground for both is the same as Ghitu Lavarunner, but the ceiling is higher.

Destroyerbirb interesting additions. To my experience the deck doesnt need extra creatures but i also don't think 1 or 2 would hurt the deck.

I am wondering if you could elaborate on your choice of Blistercoil Weird. I don't really see its benefit; its a 1/1 prowess without any other abilities? There's an argument to be made that it is better than Ghitu Lavarunner, but there are a lot of cards better than Lavarunner, I've just really come to appreciate the pseudo-haste late game.

Soul-Scar Mage is an excelent addition to any prowess based deck, altough I'm unsure if the full playset is necessary here. It's just that they're 4 dollars a pop.

NoopyNolife Very interesting build. I would just add 2x Blistercoil Weirds and definitely a playset of Soul-Scar Mages and take out the 2x Ghitu Lavarunner and the 2x Stormchaser Mages, and also take out one copy of both Titan's Strength and Mutagenic Growth.

+1 from me!

How about Sprite Dragon? It seems better than Ghitu Lavarunner or Stormchaser Mage since it gets permanent 1/1 counters and still gets haster.

Also, Manamorphose is cheaper now because it was reprinted in mystery boosters. You can even open a few mystery booster packs and get it relatively easily since manamorphose is a common.

It seems that your mana base is a little underwhelming, probably due to budget reasons. Making your mana more consistant should be your number one goal. Since fetch lands are really expensive, you can use a few Sulfur Falls, Spirebluff Canal, Fiery Islet, Steam Vents. Even if you can't get a playset of them, try to get as much as possible. A really budget dual land would be Temple of Epiphany but I wouldn't reccomend it because you are an aggro deck and dont want to be missing out on mana. However, if you cant get any untap duel lands, it is good to have a few copies of them in your deck. (note that tapped out sometimes show cards as more expensive than it normally is. also some copies of a card are cheaper)

Since this is modern, expect a few graveyard decks, so you might want to add in some graveyard interaction/hate. I would reccomend Tormod's Crypt because it is cheap in real life, costs only 0 mana and triggers prowess/sprite dragon's ability. Put 3 of them in your sideboard instead of temur battle rage and smelt. Also, you might want some creature removal in the sideboard like Dismember. Dismember is essentially one mana and can deal with pretty much any creature.

Otherwise, really cool deck! I'm surprised how good it looks with such a small budget. This could easiley be very competitive if you upgrade your mana base and change a few cards in your mainboard. However, the sideboard does need some work and there should be more replacements other than what i said.

- Abbot of Keral Keep + Soul-Scar Mage add Ghitu Lavarunner and Wizard's Lightning I might be a bit biased but I have had a lot of success with the wizard package. I would take out Chandra, Fire Artisan as well, but that is mostly because I don't think RDW really has the space nor need for planeswalkers.
