Welcome back to Modern Hero; the column where I take a budget list and slowly tweak it over time, spending $20 a week on new additions, and record the results in MTGO Leagues. If you aren’t up to date, feel free to hit the archives—

Deciding on a Deck
GB Elves Week One
GB Elves Week Two
GB Elves Week Three
GB Elves Week Four
GB Elves Week Five
GB Elves Week Six

This week I chose to buy two cards and not add them to the maindeck or sideboard just yet.

We’re still a few lands away from fully supporting our white splash. Until we get somewhere in the realm of eight white sources in the main deck, I’m not comfortable playing any white sideboard cards even if they are creatures we could play off Collected Companyand Chord of Calling. So I bought the Temple Garden to put aside until we also purchase another Windswept Heath and a set of Razorverge Thickets. Thus, the list still looks like this:

MH Elves Week Seven

Creatures (35)
Dwynen's Elite
Elvish Archdruid
Elvish Mystic
Elvish Visionary
Ezuri, Renegade Leader
Heritage Druid
Llanowar Elves
Nettle Sentinel
Reclamation Sage
