Battlebox help

The Kitchen Table forum

I'm building a battle box with 10 decks in it.

One for each 2 color combination.

The budget is 20 dollars per deck not counting basic lands.

Could I get some suggestions for fun and exciting decks that could be balanced around each other?

The enemy colored decks seemed so much more interesting and I've already got an idea for those 5 but would still like to hear ideas for them.


+1/+1 counters matter


Burning Vengeance


Hit me up with some ideas and suggestions. If you have cool decks post those too! I'll add mine to the thread as I build them!

Azorius flyers might be a little unbalanced, but might be my suggestion. Enchantment/artifacts might also be a build (think dance of the manse) Dimir mill might work, but might be too complex for a battlebox. Maybe a ZNR rogues-style mill build? Rakdos sac might be fun. Gruul 4-power Selesnya tokens+Convoke?

I know most of these aren’t keywords like the above, so maybe they wouldn’t work. Figured the suggestion can’t hurt.

Azorius - Flying matters.

Selesnya - Populate/Convoke

Dimir - Mill

Rakdos - Ball Lightning types with Sac theme

Gruul - SMASH! Because what else is there? XD

Air Force


Flash Control



These are what I've thought of.

My big hang up is how to balance the triad of Combo-Control-Aggro

Isn’t madness a Rakdos ability?

This feels like the beginning of a joke.

I don't understand.

I made a deck based around Cavalcade of Calamity and Raid Bombardment

Nonono. I meant Gruul smash madness. It sounds like the punchline of a joke.
