Todays deck is a standard Core Set 2021 budget build with just 5 rares!! Budget Boros Dogs is the deck and with M21 now available on MTG Arena i feel it's a good time to feature some budget decks as we all know wildcards are hard to come by, plus some new players to our great game may be arriving too!! Boros Dogs is an aggro boros deck that aims to amass the field with lots of creatures and overrun our opponent. Pack Leader is integruel to the deck and we craft 4 of our wildcards on that card as it makes attacking into opponents oh so sweet as it prevents all our combat damage. So basically our doggys survive :) In all my budget MTG Arena Standard decks i keep them to no more than 5 rare wildcards which i think is a good starting point and it means that you don't have to craft lots and lots of rares to play and have fun. The decks are all good enough in my opinion to do your casual daily's and grind the ladder at the lower ranks especially.
