Right now, Modern is in a fantastic spot. The format is so open it allows for off-beat strategies to thrive, proving that you can be successful if you're feeling creative. Each week you see a different strategy win a Modern Challenge or a Showcase, which is a testament to how diverse the format is.

From the outside looking in, the best way to approach an open format is adopting an aggressive mindset. Often these aggro decks are strong, quick, and allow you to understand the basics of the game.

One of these strategies is Mono-White Tokens, which is an excellent starting point for format beginners and veterans alike. It's blisteringly fast in early turns, and kind on the wallet.

Your goal is to amass a board of tokens and turn them sideways. You have a swath of anthem effects to ensure you can pile on the damage effectively, with one-for-one removal not doing much against you. The strategy sometimes crops up in undefeated Modern Leagues and saw success at MagicFest Sao Paulo at the hands of Wendell Santini last year. This proves you can see competitive success with a budget build, as long as you put in the time.

What makes Mono-White Tokens a viable option is the inclusion of Venerated Loxodon.

I'm going to be blunt, I adore this card. The best thing about Venerated Loxodon is how it grows your creatures. When surrounded with the correct cards, it can lead to strong openings which is why it complements tokens so well. Most importantly, Loxodon falls outside of both Fatal Push and Lightning Bolt range which is a decent baseline for Modern usage. Even in Standard, Loxodon saw extensive play due to its power and ability to come down in the early turns. Fortunately, you can have the same fun in Modern and on a budget.

Optimal Mono-White Tokens

As the core features commons and uncommons, upgrading this deck is straightforward—you focus on the manabase and sideboard options.

Main Deck

Sideboard

Adding Silent Clearing and Sunbaked Canyon provides card draw that will also offset mana flood. You can keep Shefet Dunes in and cut Plains instead, but be wary of the life loss from these and the upgraded mana base. Although you're in mono-white, you only have Legion's Landing to offer life gain, so keeping your life total high is something to keep in mind.

Extending to the sideboard, Auriok Champion is in a fantastic spot due to the prevalence of Rakdos Death's Shadow and Mono-Red Obosh. As a result, Auriok Champion's stock is on the rise due to the emphasis on Lightning Bolt and Fatal Push within the format. With this, it is reasonable to keep Burrenton Forge-Tender or even use Kor Firewalker as alternatives. Rest in Peace is here to respect Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath archetypes which remain evergreen within Modern.

Mono-White Tokens ft. Lingering Souls

Optimizing Mono-White Tokens is easy enough, but what if you want to delve into a second color?

Although it sees less play now, Lingering Souls is a fantastic option for Token archetypes. Spreading four bodies across five mana is a suitable way to generate two-for-ones in your favor. There are some cases where chipping in with a Spirit token will be enough to secure victory.

You'll need to add a decent amount of black sources to ensure you can cast the sorcery for its flashback cost.

Fortunately, the changes are minor and affordable. You'll want to cut Battle Screech and Unbreakable Formation to include Lingering Souls. As for your other black sources, Concealed Courtyard is the best option as you want to keep momentum while accessing your second color. You can get away with Caves of Koilos, but keep in mind the life resource management as there are few ways to gain life. Either way, Brightclimb Pathway // Grimclimb Pathway and even Godless Shrine are also excellent options if you have them. Be mindful that Rest in Peace can reduce the effectiveness of your Lingering Souls if you ever side it in against graveyard decks.

Orzhov Tokens (Budget)

Going further, you can add more black cards for a traditional approach. Orzhov Tokens was once a staple of Modern back in the early days that used Bitterblossom and Sorin, Solemn Visitor to create a constant stream of threats. It's a different play style to Mono-White Tokens as you care about draining your opponents' resources while progressing your board. Orzhov Tokens trades aggression for a midrange and attrition game plan.

There are a bunch of changes if you want to shift into a classic Modern strategy. Even on a budget, this is possible to achieve. To upgrade from Mono-White, these are the changes to make.

Main Deck

Sideboard

Granted, there are a lot of changes, but starting with the manabase will ensure you can transition into Orzhov with ease. Then, you want to grab the necessary token generators. While it's not quite Bitterblossom, Dreadhorde Invasion offers a fixed substitute on the tribal enchantment.

Compared to Bitterblossom, Dreadhorde Invasion performs better in multiples. Invasion has the same life-loss drawback but allows you to go big with multiples. As a result, playing back-to-back copies in the early game does not lock you into a position where you need to win fast or destroy your own copiesof Dreadhorde Invasion to stay alive. There are situations where you can fold to your own Bitterblossom if you are unable to close out the game. But with Invasion, attacking with a large Zombie token will restore you the life you invested early on. Eventually, you'll want to upgrade into Bitterblossom, but Invasion serves as a decent placeholder until then.

Another draw into Orzhov is Sorin, Solemn Visitor. It's the best planeswalker for this strategy as it achieves everything you want to do. It generates tokens, and you can comfortably race with Sorin's +1 ability. Plus, the ultimate is relevant and can be backbreaking against certain archetypes that are unable to keep up. Also note, Sorin's plus ability grants +1/+0 and lifelink until your next turn which means your blocks are also favorable. You'll want at least three copies of Sorin in your list, as your opponents will look to trade their best removal to keep the board tidy.

As you are expanding into black, your sideboard becomes more versatile. Kaya's Guile shores up against aggressive matchups, and Languish helps to keep the board clear. As you are a token strategy, you can recover your board quicker than your opponent, and it's good to have access to a sweeper. Once again, you can make this Orzhov build cheaper by omitting Auriok Champion for Burrenton Forge-Tender.

Orzhov Tokens (Optimal)

If you want to optimize Orzhov Tokens further, adding Thoughtseize and Bitterblossom will give you more robust win conditions.

Main Deck

Sideboard

*2 Collective Brutality moving to the sideboard replacing 1 Zealous Persecution and 1 Kaya's Guile.

You can get away with using either Bloodstained Mire, Polluted Delta, or Flooded Strand instead of Marsh Flats, but be careful that you won't be able to grab basics. However, these can all find Godless Shrine which is your best dual, so it's a small downside which you can play around. Thoughtseize is the premier discard spell of Modern and clears the path for you to deploy your threats. If you want to improve further, you can add a couple of Bloodstained Mire to improve filtering, but it's not essential.

Orzhov Tokens is a ghost of Modern's past, but it's fun to go down memory lane and try something different. Modern has a rich history full of weird and wonderful archetypes that are worth playing even if they aren't well-positioned anymore. You get a sense of how the format has grown since the beginning, and you get to learn something unique in the process.
