We’re five weeks in, just about halfway through our second installment of Modern Hero. As you know, we’re playing Gb Elves and have spent nearly $100 on improvements to the deck. Here are this weeks changes:


+2 Fatal Push
-2 Evolutionary Leap

The two Fatal Pushes put us back $19.98 (or 11.72 MTGO Tix).

I’ve been noticing a lot of Elves decks with Fatal Push in the sideboard as it offers up some additional disruption that is relevant in a ton of matches. Evolutionary Leap on the other hand we only wanted in grindy match-ups like Jund, Abzan, and potentially blue based control strategies. Having said that, I never really wanted to bring it in as it’s mana intensive, still gets hit by Abrupt Decay, and mostly is worse than Lead the Stampede in these match-ups.

Here is the most recent list:
