What's a good way to go for a relatively inexpensive deck that has a good shot in standard? I have some cards I'm willing to trade towards it (4 umezawa's jitte, noble hierarch, thornling, garruk, few others) I was thinking maybe going 5cc, as the main investment would just be the manabase, but was wondering if anyone here could give any ideas. Thanks a lot.

Cheapest is elfball, but it's nowhere near Tier1.

Kithkin is really cheap if you just get past figure and goldmane. (I like ajani better than elspeth.) Stillmoons in the board aren't a necessity, but are a pricey help.

Rb Blightning aggro is probably next, but if you get Demigods and Bitterblossoms and obviously Thoughtseize, then yeah, pricey too.

I think the best deck in the format right now is jund ramp, the lands are expensive and u already have the garruks so i would suggest investing in that, or mono red thats good too and very cheap. I dont think 5cc is that good anymore so i would not waste money on starting to build it right now.

Do you think the kithkin list that just got 4th by Ethren would be a good one to build? I could probably obtain the rares for that pretty easily.

Have you thought about Bant Aggro? It is very good and other then the mana it need very few rares.

The Kithkin list looks pretty solid.

I'd say about the cheapest thing you can do that would be remotely good is Kithkin WW.

I would disagree with you there. Most, if not all, bant decks will run cryptic's, and those will set you back. Rafiqs are a bit expensive as well, though he does already have a hierarch, so that helps out.

Sure Cryptic Command makes the deck. You can run other counters in place until you get the CC. The main card for that deck is Rafiq anyway. CC is just a perfect support card for the deck.
