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—

This week I went way over budget, purchasing two Razorverge Thickets, one Rest in Peace, one Kitchen Finks, a Yixlid Jailer, and an Eidolon of Rhetoric for a grand total of $34.04 after shipping on TCGplayer. On the bright side, we finally completed our white splash and have access to much better sideboarding options now.
