Welcome to my page! Thanks for coming by. Mono Black and Jund are the archetypes I prefer to build and play. Modern is by far my favorite format. I've been playing on and off for years since Mercadian Masks. My first deck was the "Apocalypse Theme Deck - Swoop" and I've been hooked ever since. I took a long break around the time of 9th or 10th Edition to concentrate on school while unbeknownst to me, Modern was developing into a hot commodity. I came back to Magic during M15 and have been a student ever since. I dug out my old box of cards and threw together some pretty terrible decks before learning about Modern. I took a stab at Modern with one of these dumpster fires and got roasted by Grishoalbrand and I quickly realized I was doing it wrong. I eventually put together Modern 8-Rack which morphed into Mono Black Devotion. Both did about average at FNM. I then got smacked around by Jund and instantly knew that THAT was the deck I wanted to play.

Please feel free to post any decks to my wall that you'd like feedback on. I enjoy a good Budget build and the occasional Jank. Have a look around and check out my decks. (I have a bunch) Happy travels on your journey through the Multiverse.


Here are some of my current decks. I update them frequently as I play MTG whenever I get a free moment. Be it here through playtesting or at my LGS.

Here’s a section from my recent budget Merfolk deck.


===accordion

===panel:Islands
![Islands](https://product-images.tcgplayer.com/237588.jpg "enter image title here")
#### [[card:Cavern of Souls]]
With a heavy representation of [[symbol:U]] decks in the current Modern Meta, this powerful land is worth it's weight in Platinum. (Literally) Unfortunately this high price tag limits us to 1 copy.
<hr>

#### [[card:Otawara, Soaring City]]
An un-counterable bounce spell on a land is hard to not include. This land is still a reasonable price and offers the deck an added utility with which to steal victory. Play it untapped as a [[symbol:U]] source, pitch it to bounce a permanent for soft removal, or bounce your own permanent for protection. Keep in mind that this hits artifact creature and enchantment lands if needed.
<hr>

#### [[card:Mutavault]]
While not an island, an honorary merfolk that can receive a boost from your [[card:Lord of Atlantis (LEB) | Lords]] and provide a threat that can be tough to interact with against certain decks.
<hr>

#### [[card:Waterlogged Grove]] / [[card:Fiery Islet]]
Running out of gas in an aggressive deck is the worst thing you can have happen. With an empty board and an empty hand, the top of your library is your last resource in Merfolk. The ability to double dip in a pinch makes this untapped land a welcome addition to the archetype. Be careful with the pain taken from this land as it can add up against other aggro decks.

I do very few things with html tables. Deck lists and things like that. But, most of what I do is in the accordion tool.

Yo yo, question about your deck formats.. Is it only premium accounts that can add sideboard guide/ card decisions sections? Or are you using custom HTML for that?

Infernal Grasp is a nice improvement over Cast Down. Not sure if it's already been mentioned. Lithoform Blight is another pet card of mine that might be an option.
