The last two months I've been primarily playing a lot of Standard Magic (I know, I know, Shame on me, etc.), I was heavily preparing for GP: Pittsburgh, GP: New Jersey & PPTQs playing a sweet Grixis Dynavolt Tower deck. In the process I became distant from Legacy, yet alone Storm. When I attended local Legacy events, I played Miracles or Sneak & Show (due to an unhealthy metagame). After Read More »
I am always trying to find a way to innovate and make The EPIC Storm a better deck, it never ends. I mentioned at the end of my Grand Prix: Louisville article that I felt the deck needed to move the Bayou from the main deck to the sideboard for increased mana stability. I had two mulligans due to the Bayou not being the fourth copy of Bloodstained Mire, other Read More »
Do you ever feel like Magic: The Gathering events can be determined by one small instance during your day? Sometimes it seems as if an action in an early round will set the tone for the rest to come, good or bad. You draw three cards off a Brainstorm and it's Dark Ritual, Lion's Eye Diamond and Infernal Tutor - you just know that you're going to run hot. Then there are Read More »

Last month I played my "new list" to a second place finish at Mythic Games. This month, I did the same exact thing. I've been playing in two local events a week with the deck as well as a bunch of games online and have been having a lot of success. I think for the time being that I've found the sweet-spot with the hybrid list (who knows how long Read More »
After a hot 3-0 start in Star City Games: Baltimore last month, I crashed and burned – losing twice to Shardless BUG and once to a Stoneblade variant. Slightly frustrated, I went back to the drawing board.
Something I've been working on for awhile is finding the right amount of consistency while maintaining explosiveness. It's a delicate balance that is often tough to find because there aren't really too many flexible Read More »
Other than a terrific reference to Taking Back Sunday's second album, where you want to be as a Legacy storm pilot right now is playing The EPIC Storm. I know, I know... "Look, Bryant is preaching about his deck again." Well, that's true - but for good reason.
