Hey, let me know what you need. I'll happily do 70% of the cheapest you can find online.

I should have all the shocks, fetches and most of the key cards. I'm probably 5-10 cards off from building most decks.

I would just pick a deck y ou are going to be happy playing for a whole year and roll with it. To say you don't want to play affinity because it's going to be heavy hated for ~3 months is a poor reason to not play a deck.

Stony silence is the only hate card that plays itself

Don't give up on your favorite deck. A big part of modern is picking a pony and sticking with it.

That being said, yes twin will always be a thing and never worse than 45% preboard. But it is very very hard to play perfectly. Try to watch this. If you can't/won't, at least listen to one of the rants about a play he screwed up.

merfolk isn't too expensive i don't think, probably easy enough for you to pick up.

but in seriousness i will recommend twin, since knowing your luck, they end up banning it which is what i really want. lets use your powers for good!

I wouldn't even say affinity is my favorite deck, I've played it a lot but that was when the format was called Extended. it shares like... Ravager and Plating and Ornithopter with that deck.

I've watched a lot of modern on Twitch and Twin definitely seems like the one I'd most want to be playing, so if that's the criteria, then Twin.

Worst case scenario, Twin gets banned and you're all fucking welcome.

the best part is that even when you're tired or intoxicated, or just a bad player and screwing up you can draw a card that wins the game for 4 mana against Andrew Sullano

Depending on your budget / desire I would recommend Twin and/or Jund. Both decks are very customizable and able to adapt to how the meta changes, neither is likely to be banned out of existence, and large portions of the cards used in them transfer over to other deck types that you might want to explore later.
