Top 10 Budget Magic Modern Decks of 2021

Every week on the Budget Magic series, we play a deck that costs $100 or less. In 2021, we ended up playing a massive 20 Modern Budget Magic decks. But one of the challenges of building a cheap deck every week is that some end up being more competitive than others.

If you're looking for something cheap to play in 2022 Modern, this is a great place to start!
