    PRIMER: JUNK

    Note on Budget: Unlike its more controlling brother, Dark Bant, with Junk you can build this on a budget (or close to it). You do not need any Blue dual lands, and two of them are the ‘less desirable’ duals available for around a hundo each, however the bottleneck will be Bayou. If you can borrow this single expensive card you’re golden, but without it the deck is still entirely playable and loses very little functionality (saving you $250 in the process until you can trade into one). So if you take the Bayou out of the picture the deck is comparable in price to something like Zoo.

    Junk is an awesome Midrange deck with HEAPS of variations. The primer linked below is for the Value Junk version, whereas others focus more on the Melira Pod Combo (with Chord of Calling, etc.) or more Manlands to fight control, and so on. At the end of the day they all differ by only a handful of cards, because the essential equipment value deck in a GBW shell is already so elegant…
