Quote from Rapidwombat »This game meant a lot to me as a kid who felt like an outsider and I would really like to get back into it. My financial situation is so strained that short of finding these dual lands there would be no way I could start a collection at all.
Quote from Rapidwombat »I can't answer your questions about what format and deck I want to play until I do some research.
Quote from WarMachinePrime »There are a few budget oriented Tron decks in the Modern metagame as well, albeit not quite as viable or competitive.
Shocklands and Fetchlands are the basis of most every competitive deck in Modern, they are essential.
Quote from KnickM » »
Personally, I'd advise strongly against Modern Masters '13. It was an AMAZING draft environment; I loved it to death, and it has some awesometastic cards. But the box cost just isn't there in value when you crack it. Modern Masters '17 is a much better entry point to Modern, since it has the fetch lands at rare and boxes can be had for significantly less than MM13 boxes.
Quote from WarMachinePrime »KnickM makes a good point on MM17 if you are into cracking packs and want to sample Modern. Again they aren't cheap. If casual is where you want to be at, no problem with that.
