Budget MTG Decks
All magic fun, all cards under a dollar

We here at Budget MTG Decks love playing constructed Magic: the Gathering! Whether it’s EDH / Commander, standard or modern, duel or multiplayer, we can’t get enough of it.

Our vision of MTG is a game which encourages strategic thinking, social interaction and above all…fun! To make this accessible to everyone we decided to lower the two largest barriers which people encounter with this game:

1: Cost of building a Magic deck.
2: Complexity of building a Magic deck.

Our mission at Budget MTG Decks is to provide full deck tech videos describing ready to play EDH / Commander and duel decks. With in depth commentary on each card and overall play style. To make sure the decks are truly budget we have limited the price of all our cards to under a dollar (with exception of the commanders). Now everyone can join the Magic: the Gathering fun!

These videos are so helpful and comprehensive. I can’t believe the actual MTG video thinks you can successfully play after a 5-minute tutorial. Thank you!

Thank you! Your tutorials are sooo helpful! I got free mtg decks a few days ago and I’m planning on attending Friday Night Magic. Wish me luck! (I hope I won’t make a fool out of myself lol)

CometAvis says:

this is the best tutorial out there but, I have a question. If I had a first strike creature attacking and my opponent blocks with another first strike creature, who would strike first? Or would the damage be done at the same time?

newjerseyjustin says:

why doesnt the youthful knight die to the rune claw bear? It only has one point of life and the runeclaw bear deals 2 damage.??
