What would be a good deck to build that doesn't fold to every other deck and I can make on a budget?
What would be a good deck to build that doesn't fold to every other deck and I can make on a budget?That's a pretty lofty set of requirements.
Blue is the best color ever. How do you deal? ------------------------------ Team GFG - "gulf, foxtrot, gulf"

Best Pauper Deck in the format, not close:
...dirt cheap after the shocklands...

...dirt cheap after the shocklands...Yep, and Zoo is dirt cheap after goyf, the shocklands, and fetches. Saying something is dirt cheap after you spend 80+ dollars on lands is a bit far fetched.Mono red goblin bloodmoon will be cheap, straight forward, and can really hurt many of the decks in the metagame.
As mentioned, monored or monogreen elves should give you a lot of bang for the buck. Monowhite weenie might also. You probably won't win tournaments, but with an aggressive mono colored deck you should be able to put up a good fight most of the time, and you avoid the financial hit of expensive mana bases.
At least that's my goal: exclude the mana-base for now, find a deck that looks fun and yet has the tools to be competitive within my playstyle. Tweak over time.
I think the cost to be competitive will keep a lot of people out of it. Sad. Good Format.No Pro Tour for the poor.
Good point. I'm not lookin to play competitive, it just seems Modern might even be more expensive than Standard in terms of rounding out decks with high power singles, but no rotation means you wont have to buy a new set of cards every three months, so, maybe the scale balances.
The cheapest deck that's viable would be some sort of eggstorm. I'll give it a rough go.
