Match 1 

Match 2

Match 3

As I mentioned the deck is not the strongest but has some explosive starts.

Some weaknesses:

The most glaring weakness I found was the lack of late game. Once it got past turn 6 or 7, I felt that my chances of winning were hindered greatly. There was hope of maybe drawing a couple burn spells but each creature you drew felt very underpowered.

Also only packing 17 lands can lead to some awkward draws. Especially since there are no creature lands.

The last weakness is the lack of card advantage. Once you are behind, you stay behind and that is really tough to deal with.

Possible Upgrades:

The obvious upgrade is to go to complete Affinity. However that is not exactly budget. So what can we add to the deck that doesn't empty the wallet?

Master of Etherium Thoughtcast Steel Overseer

None of these cards are expensive and they can each add to the deck. Giving you the extra oomph that you may need.

Blinkmoth Nexus Inkmoth Nexus Glimmervoid

Even changing the mana base improves the deck considerably. Inkmoth Nexus is the most expensive but still not as bad as it used to be. Having the creature lands is a huge improvement. There are many games you can win if you just get a Cranial Plating on an Inkmoth.

If anything you have a cheap shell to build on and still be able to play some fun magic.

I will be looking into other budget lists, trying them out, and reporting back to you. They may not always be video series but I want to show you what is viable and what is not worth the frustration. I am hoping to find more time to play and write again now that life has slowed down. Thank you for watching and until next time!
