I have constructed five decks that while may not be able to beat first tier decks, can still win a lot in the tourney practice room on MTGO, which is always a good sign. All the decks are budget and don’t contain any cards over a dollar. They don’t even have any rares, and can be slightly tweaked to become Peasant decks.

The first deck is a post-banning version of Affinity. Wizards thought they could stop Affinity by banning Ravager and artifact lands, but they were sadly mistaken. Ha! Or not… So maybe this deck doesn’t get third turn kills, but it can still pack a punch. Instead of Ravager for kill, Affinity.dec relies on Qumulox
