MTG Arena Budget Standard Decks - June 2021

MTG Arena Budget Standard and Alchemy Decks for Beginners

The best budget decks for Standard and Alchemy, with cheap common and uncommon cards only.

If you’re new to MTG Arena, building a cheap budget competitive deck can be challenging, especially if you’re looking to spend as little real-world gold as you can! Magic’s myriad different cards can be overwhelming, and Wildcards are a precious resource that you can’t always afford to waste on the wrong decks, no matter how enticing! Placing small bets on crafting and gradually opening cards until you find an expensive deck you’re sure you’ll love is the best way to go, at least while your resources are so limited.

Innistrad Standard post-rotation has been an absolute blast to play, but admittedly, it’s not the easiest on the Wildcards. It’s much better than previous Standard environments in my opinion, but for those who don’t have large collections, it could still be a struggle. Well fret not! I spent hours upon hours making a large amount of budget decks that can be easily made no matter your collection size and the most competitive version of the deck you can make as well!

In this guide, you’ll find our exclusive curated list of some fantastic budget Standard decks from various archetypes, with a brief explanation of the deck, an upgrade guide, and sample decklists for each one. Visit our Standard deck page if you’d like to see what some of the finished products look like. You can also go straight to the Budget deck section itself for the complete list, and for more ideas, be sure to visit our Standard Artisan section (a format where you are only allowed commons and uncommons).

Historic is a format where your cards never rotate out, but has a much wider card pool and can be intimidating for players that wish to start out. Click here for our dedicated guide to Historic Budget decks!

Budget Deck Aims

Here’s a set of parameters we build our budget Standard decks around, to ensure they’re at their most useful to you:

  • The base deck will aim to have as few rares as possible, but if one or two different cards are exceptionally important to the archetype and there’s no easy replacement, then you might see them. For each deck, we provide pathways or a link to upgrade into more competitive versions. Upgrades depend on your collection and Wildcard availability, so we’ll provide different options to tailor to your specific needs!
  • Each deck is geared towards best-of-one, and players can now have up to seven cards in their sideboard. This makes the new Learn mechanic and Lesson cards quite powerful – include them where you can! For best-of-three, do check out our budget sideboard guide at the end to help you build a sideboard.
  • Here are the sets in Standard right now, which all these cards come from:
    • Zendikar Rising
    • Kaldheim
    • Strixhaven: School of Mages
    • Adventures in the Forgotten Realms
    • Innistrad: Midnight Hunt
    • Innistrad: Crimson Vow
    • Kamigawa: Neon Dynasty

How Do I Decide What To Craft?

Crawling Barrens Art by Jonas De Ro
Crawling Barrens Art by Jonas De Ro

This is a great question that doesn’t have a concrete answer, but I believe there’s an order you should upgrade your decks in. In totality, you should look to craft the most ubiquitous cards first and then keep going until you’re crafting highly specific cards to finish your particular deck. With that in mind, we can go even more specific.

1. Lands

Lands should always be your first priority as those are generally going to be the most ubiquitous cards in Standard. The Pathways are all excellent and invaluable moving forward so crafting 4 of each is an extremely safe craft.

The creature lands from AFR, the Channel lands, and the new Innistrad duals are also extremely safe crafts. However, these don’t always need 4 depending on what deck you’re building, so keep that in mind.

The last in the lands are the Snarls which unfortunately are pretty weak. For the most part you can avoid crafting these entirely for now as they see play in so few decks, but making a specific Snarl to make your deck run a bit more smoothly is perfectly fine as well.

2. Ubiquitous Rares

This is a pretty general category, but what I mean here is to next craft Rares you see in multiple decklists. Examples of this could include Esika's Chariot or Luminarch Aspirant as they see play in functionally any deck that can cast them. Furthermore you want to start with Rares as Mythics are going to be much harder to stockpile.

3. Ubiquitous Mythic Rares

Although you generally want to avoid crafting Mythics if you’re just upgrading budget decks, there are plenty of Mythics that see so much play they are very safe crafts. The most popular ones that come to mind are something like The Meathook Massacre or Goldspan Dragon cards that have literally no replacement.

4. Specific Rares

These are Rares that may see minimal play or some small amounts of play, but are really just for the deck you are making such as Werewolf Pack Leader or Orcus, Prince of Undeath.

5. Specific Mythic Rares

These are mythics that see minimal or small amounts of play. These are definitely the last thing you want to craft if you’re on a budget as these will be hard to use in other strategies like Galazeth Prismari or Turntimber Symbiosis.

This is more or less the strategy to go by. If you’re unsure where something lies, you can check out lists here to get an idea of what cards see the most play, but I’ll also give you my opinions as well. With that, let’s get into the decks.

Although less popular than the other aggro options, Mono Black can still pack a punch with it’s combination of a quick clock with solid interaction. If you’re looking to upgrade this deck, you can look to build toward this version which uses Zombies as the main fighting force.

Like Mono Black, Mono Red has mostly been out shined by it’s White and Green counterpart. Nevertheless, the deck is still relatively solid if you really enjoy playing Red aggro. If you’re looking to upgrade, I would look towards my build below.
