Hey folks, I’m back from vacation with a small change to Elves and some videos from an ill-fated MTGO League. The only change I made this week was to buy one Thoughtseize and replace a Duress in the sideboard.

The Thoughtseize set us back $19.99 or just about our entire $20 budget for the week.  We do have $13.54 banked due to not having to pay our entrance fee and having a little money left over from last week. Thankfully we went 4-1 last week and accumulated enough play points to join this league on the house. Next week, I’d like to add another Thoughtseize to the sideboard and start working our way toward the white splash to make sideboarding options infinitely better. I’m also open to suggestions on future purchases and ways to make the deck more formidable.

Here is the list we played this week:

MH Elves Week Three

Creatures (35)
Dwynen's Elite
Elvish Archdruid

Elvish Visionary
Ezuri, Renegade Leader

Our record before this week was 5-5 in all time matches and 15-12 in games. A spoiler alert for this week, it only goes downhill from here:
