This is a midrange value deck that seeks to generate card advantage through value creatures like Coiling Oracle, Eternal Witness, and Militia Bugler. The meme factor comes in from our combo finish which looks to leverage the card Biovisionary alongside cheap clone effects like Phantasmal Image and Mirror Image. In a pinch these clones can also be used to make more value creatures allowing us to flood the board with two power creatures.
You know what they say – you can’t make an omelet, or in this case an Emrakul, the Aeons Torn – without cracking a few eggs. This deck is looking to tuck a scary creature under Modern staple Summoner’s Egg and then crack it via Phyrexia’s Core or Greater Gargadon. Should we be unable to find our deck’s namesake we also have a backup plan of cheating our large creatures into play via Through the Breach.
This is a combo deck that puts some combination of Puresteel Paladin and Sram, Senior Edificer into play and then plays out a variety of zero mana equipment to draw through its deck while generating storm count. Mox Opal along with Retract lets us pick all of our gear back up and keep drawing cards while we combo. Eventually we play two pieces of fast mana and cast a lethal Grapeshot to win the game.
This potent meme is looking to empty all 7 of the lands out of its deck with cards like Caravan Vigil and Safewright Quest before it activates its namesake Goblin Charbelcher.

This deck might be the biggest Meme Modern contains. We choose to be on the draw, discard Shadowborn Apostle to hand size, and then Surgical Extraction all the other copies out of our deck. Now that our deck is small we play Shelldock Isle to find Emrakul, the Aeons Torn which we can then cast since our deck is now as small as it is.
Please note the video below is from one of my older streams so there are a few moments of the kids being loud in the background.
This is a White based prison deck that is trying to cast Enduring Ideal as soon as possible. We can ramp into our namesake card with both Lotus Bloom and Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx. Once Enduring Ideal is cast we lock our opponent out of the game with enchantments like Dovescape, Overwhelming Splendor, and Sphere of Safety. Eventually we win the game on the back of Form of the Dragon dealing five damage a turn.

This mostly creatureless deck is looking to generate creature tokens and then convert them into a scary monster via Polymorph or Proteus Staff. We have a back up plan of being a value midrange on the back of planeswalkers and creature lands.

This is probably the deck I am most Internet famous for. I was paid a large sum of money to play this deck at an SCG open in an Owl Costume. It is a total hoot and if you enjoy sending your opponent’s cards back to their hand I would highly recommend this one.
Mikokoro, Center of the Sea
This deck is capable of winning the game on the very first turn. It does so by putting Narset, Enlightened Master into play via Goryo’s Vengeance. Then we start taking extra combat steps with cards like Fury of the Horde. This is one of the few decks in Magic where you want to be sure you are choosing to draw. Not only do we want the extra card to try and kill with, but Gemstone Caverns is much better on the draw!
