Another week, another league. Let’s just jump right in shall we.

This week I spent  $32.53* on these changes:

+1 Windswept Heath
-1 Forest

+1 Thoughtseize
-1 Duress

*We also bought a Burrenton Forge-Tender but don’t have the white sources to put it in our starting 75 yet.

The addition of Windswept Heath works to increase our black sources of mana and will eventually cement our white splash (thanks to Temple Garden). Eventually we’ll up our fetch land count and add Razorverge Thickets to support better sideboarding options but for now we’re sticking with the Gb build. We also added a second Thoughtseize to the sideboard to give us additional disruption against combo decks and the like.

Here are the videos. A word of warning though, if you enjoy Elves, seeing me win games, or Modern Hero as a concept these videos may not be for you.
