Modern on a Budget and Basic Modern Help!

Hey guys,

I'm relatively new to magic but I'm fairly competitive and have a strong winrate as well as a top 8 in states/provs after playing for just over a month.

I am a student at University and I only had so much money to allocate into Magic cards.

As a result I maximized my standard deck and I'm playing U/W Humans which isn't all that expensive, but still with dual lands/geists/heroes cost me a good chunk.

I now need to make a Legacy deck and Modern deck to try and be proficient in all three formats.

For legacy, I plan to use the Red Deck Wins list that's only around $150 compared to most legacy decks at around $2030023023020


Now I need to build a modern deck that can be competitive, but not cost too much money.

Honestly, I'd like to play zoo, but the lands are more than I can afford alone and I've tried zoo with basic lands (worst idea ever).


Anyways, I need some help making a deck on a budget and I also need some help playing the deck, and what I should do against match-ups in the metagame.

Thanks for your help! It is truly appreciated and I'll acknowledge you after I win three pro tours and worlds :D
If you don't mind playing combo, Living End combo can be a fairly cheap deck to assemble. While it dose require some dual lands to create, the mainboard requires very few rares other then said lands, and the sideboard can be rare free if you so choose. An example build can be found at this link. The basic combo of the deck is to use cards with cascade to play living end from your deck for free. It's somewhat simmilar to hypergenisis decks, except using your graveyard instead of your hand and making use of creatures that sacrifice thermselves or have cycling or other abilites that can send them to the graveyard. It may not be your cup of tea and I understand that, but I just thought I'd sugjest it since it is one of the cheaper decks one can build in modern.
Cant you try to build a deck including the geist and the heroes in modern? Im sure there are some nice tools in modern to make the list better.
