"Since I managed to fall massively behind on these Part 8 is now going to be part of a GAOV Overview, rather than Preview, given that the set is actually out now… It does mean the cards will have the correct names and texts though.

Top Decks on a Low Budget (TCGplayer)

"While many of us don't have a huge problem buying a few costly cards to put together a strong deck, there are many others on a much tighter budget. Many of my friends fall into this category.

In this article I'm going to take three of the current top decks of the current format, and reshape them into decks anyone could afford. Join me, fellow budget Duelist, as we attempt to create some amazing budget builds!"
