I play a good deal of different Modern decks every week on stream that viewers send in. When a deck feels powerful, or fun, I often end up playing it more than once. This page will serve as a collection of the decks I have played multiple times and have developed preferences for. Using the links below or the search function you can find my latest preferred deck list for various Modern archetypes.
You can also find a list of literally every deck I have ever played on stream on my streamdecker page here.
