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. If you want to keep updated, make sure to hit the add as friend button on my profile so you can stay updated on when they come out.
The list below is the current planar deck being used for my local groups commander nights, feel free to check it out!

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.

This tab consists of former modern deck ideas I've had, but have since pitched and stored them here.
The lists below are decks that were made to be played by either myself or friends of mine.
Seems kind of self-explanatory, but these are my current modern lists.
Seems kind of self-explanatory, but these are my current commander lists.
I created a crazy vintage cube to draft with some friends online. Feel free to give any constructive feedback you'd like on it.
These are my newest creations that I've released, feel free to check them out!
