Hi. My favorite format is Modern and my next favorite is Pauper; I've got some knowledge of Legacy (and sometimes Standard if it's an interesting set), but not much. Deckbuilding is my forte, and I specialize in budget decks! When it comes to Modern, it always seems like people underestimate either the ability of a budget deck to perform well or the general feasibility of making a Modern deck for cheap. As a student with not much money to spare myself, I try to squash that illusion as much as I possibly can when I build.

I also enjoy helping people out with their decks, so if you want any of my unqualified advice don't hesitate to send a message.

Chrono Trigger anyone?

Well, I mostly say not to play more than 1 Nykthos from personal experience with it in zombies. Zombies doesn't have that many payoffs for a lot of mana (although that's changed since Carrion Feeder is legal now), and I found that it sometimes made mana awkward. When it can make a bunch of mana and let you play your hand, it's good, but otherwise it's pretty meh, and I value consistency with mana a lot more than that every-so-often scenario, so in my own deck I cut it down to 0-1 copies. Although the fact that I was playing Mutavault may also have played a role in that decision.

Either way, you can play it if you want. It would probably work out fine either way.

Against midrange, you want cards that are able to create value so you can keep up with them; the most popular midrange decks play 1-for-1 removal, so creatures with recursion (like Relentless Dead ) or ones that make multiple bodies ( Diregraf Colossus ) are good. Murderous Rider is a beast vs midrange since it's almost an automatic 2-for-1 on its own (kills something then they need removal to kill it). Rotting Regisaur , while big, is easily answered by most removal spells outside of Lightning Bolt , plus its ability is the opposite of what you want in a resource-dependent matchup like midrange. So don't play it. If you do play Nykthos only play 1, there are a lot of B symbols on your creatures so 2 is a little risky without Urborg.

May I suggest having a having a split between Cathartic Reunion and Thrill of Possibility ? Reunion is better at filling the graveyard for Reveler, but after you get 6 in there every Reunion after drops off in value; plus the instant speed on Thrill lets you use your mana more efficiently. For example, if it's turn 3 and you have a Terminate and Thrill in hand you can pass the turn and draw if they don't play a threat, which you wouldn't be able to do with Cathartic Reunion.

Mistbind is a strong enough card on its own to make up for the slight inconsistency with the Rogues, so it should be fine. Hope you like it!

I figured Fiend Hunter could replace Plague Engineer in the main because it's got more relevance in a broader range of matchups. Like, the second Engineer against Jund is gonna be a near-dead card while the Fiend Hunter that would be in its place wouldn't be.

How about a Fiend Hunter in the main (probably in place of a Plague Engineer ) for some tutorable removal? You can do the permanent exile trick with Ephemerate , too. I would also recommend playing a few one-of creatures in the sb, like Thrun, the Last Troll , Collector Ouphe , Thragtusk , Acidic Slime , etc etc.

Hmm, I forgot they printed that. I could see a couple Duelists making it in. Thanks!

A better answer for lands is Fulminator Mage . It's a creature you can attack with and reanimate for another use.

September 27, 2019 11:41 p.m.

I'd replace the Claims with Unearth since it can reanimate Skelementals and Hell's Thunders. More discard spells (the rest of the Inquisitions and some Thoughtseize ) will generally benefit your deck more than Shock and Contaminated Ground .

September 27, 2019 10:56 p.m.

Murderous Rider is a definite upgrade. Might even be good enough to play 4, especially if you play against midrange a lot.

September 27, 2019 1:52 p.m.

Hey, I'm back again! Carrion Feeder is legal in Modern now and it's a waaaaay better card than Diregraf Ghoul (especially alongside Gravecrawler ), so I suggest you replace them with it.

September 26, 2019 8:40 p.m.

A couple Brazen Borrower would be great in here! It can be used as removal and is board wipe protection. Also makes kind of makes your mana curve a bit better. I'd cut a Vendilion Clique and a Wee Dragonauts to fit them in.

I would also consider cutting a Wizard's Retort and maybe an Electrolyze to play Remand . Early on, Remand is honestly a better counterspell than Counterspell in a tempo heavy deck like this one.

One Mutavault could be a good inclusion as an extra wizard/faerie that can activate itself to meet the requirements for Wizard's Lightning/Retort.
