Budget Hex Constructed Decks

Last Updated November 19th, 2017

I often have people ask me for suggestions for decks to get started into Hex Constructed that have reasonable price tags. I am going to keep this post updated with a few different suggestions so I can reference it when people ask this question.

If you are new to Hex itself and want to learn about the game in general check out my post on Hex Primal here. If you do end up purchasing the deck you want from HexPrimal.com you can use code Jeff5 at checkout to get a 5% discount on your order. You can easily paste the list of cards below into their Quick Buy Tool.

BD Constants

Approximate Cost: 25 USD

Blood-Diamond Constants is a midrange deck that leans on the power of quality removal like Decree of Banishing and Dark of Night to control the board while we kill them with cards like Twilight Eclipse and Twilight Archon. Early troops like Vesper and Sunset Shade also allow us to occasionally have aggressive draws as well.

RD Ardent Sockets

Approximate Cost: 45 USD

Ruby-Diamond Ardent Sockets is what I like to refer to as a “brunch” or aggressive-midrange deck. It showcases Hex’s “socketed cards” nicely. Socketed cards are cards that you can customize during deck building and change while reserving in a match.

It has powerful must answer threats like Emsee, Etcher of Nulzann and Ardent Crusader while also playing quality interaction such as Decree of Banishing. It is capable of aggressive draws thanks to Haraza’s Burning Banner accelerated out by the Major Ruby of Galvanism in Animus of Nulzann.

  1. I like reading your articles and budget decks are always interesting for me. I haven’t played any constructed format because I always think I don’t have a chance to win and that’s why I always play limited (although I play hex from 2014). I would encourge you to continue with your articles and posts on reddit. Is there any chance that you can make links to decks that you post on tcgbrowser? I would really like that I can see what cards I have and which I don’t while looking at decks and I also can put deck in favorites. Thank you!

      1. Thank you for your time. Also you could add few match videos with decks so people can see how it actually plays and ofcourse your commentary.
        Eitherway…keep up with good work 😉 (hopeing to see new ones soon)

  2. I don’t Twitter, so I figured this would be the best place for it.

    Thanks for all your Hex content! Thanks to all the streaming and videos you do as well as written content (like this page in particular), I’m pretty sure I piloted Redlings to a top 8 in today’s Platinum Plunder. 8-2 with 65%+ breakers should be good enough, I hope. Hex is great, and it’s because of your content that I discovered it.

    By the way, any chance King Kitty and Young Peezy will ever make a comeback? Those decks were a lot of fun to watch way back in the day.

    1. Thanks for the kind words mate! Sorry for the delay in my response, but I often forget to check the comments here. Congrats on the strong run in the plunder!

  3. Hey Jeff, love your content, never get to see it live because timezones but try to catch it all on YT. In regards to Candlings, what would you recommend I ditch for Lyvaanth?
