Brewer's Minute: Budget Building

Hey, everyone! It's time for another Brewer's Minute! One of the most popular requests that I get is more content about my process for building decks, and while this topic is way too big to handle in a single video, today we're going to discuss one important aspect in regard to building budget-friendly decks specifically. When people first start building budget decks, the natural impulse is to take an expensive tier list and find cheaper substitutes, and while this is one pathway to building budget decks—especially in an expensive format like Modern—the end result usually isn't all that fun or competitive. There are simply too many staple cards that don't have good budget substitutes. Thankfully, there is another way to go about building budget decks: upgrading! What's the difference between downgrading and upgrading, and which path is more effective? Let's break it down!
