Brewed Up: Lotus Storm

Storm has a long and storied history in Modern and has forced multiple bans. Now with the printing of Lotus Field it has a new lease on life. Today's brew comes from Nathan Wells who took it to a 12-3 finish at Grand Prix Minneapolis. With a Turn 3 win and a $200 price tag, this might just be the best budget deck in the Modern format.

Brewed Up: Aggro Shift

An archetype that I always seem to fall back into is Scapeshift. Aggro Shift is the intersection of two of my favorite archetypes in Modern. The deck is capable of incredibly fast aggro kills while also having a very viable Valakut Plan B. It is not a new idea, but the printing of Wrenn and Six has breathed new life into this old archetype.

Brewed Up: Post-Ban Hogaak

The recent banning of Bridge from Below left a lot of questions about the viability of the deck. It was a big loss but Hogaak, Arisen Necropolis is still good enough to see Modern play. Magic Online player, techninja701, has already managed a 5-0 league and a 6-2 finish in the Modern Challenge with a Bridgeless version of the deck.
