TES Matchup Battles: 4C Control

It is time for yet another edition of the TES Matchup Battles series and this episode we take on 4C Control! Over the past couple of months people have been shifting to BUG decks, which have evolved to playing Leovold, Emissary of Trest, because of its strong abilities in many matchups. The recent printing of Fatal Push is just one more good tool that the BUG decks get to use Read More »

TES Matchup Battles: Sneak and Show

It is time for yet another edition of the TES Matchup Battles series and this episode we take on Sneak and Show! We have previously taken on creature and control decks, but let's see how we match up against another combo deck. Show and Tell decks have gone up and down in popularity for the past several years. When Griselbrand was printed it really put this deck on the map Read More »

TES Matchup Battles: Leovold Sultai

It is time for episode three of the TES Matchup Battles series and this episode we take on Leovold Sultai! Now any legacy players that have been playing the last couple years are probably aware that Sultai variants have been around for a while, like Shardless Sultai, Sultai Delver, and their many flavors of each, but now we have a new one in the form of Leovold Sultai. Thanks to Read More »

TES Infernal Tutoring # 9

Welcome back to the Infernal Tutoring series! This edition should show a major shift in my attempted learning process. As such, we'll start this article with some (minimal) applied logic. To contextualize, with all the talks and discussions around our favorite deck, I couldn't help but notice that I as a player had been stagnant for quite a while. My win rate on Cockatrice had never been so low and my confidence Read More »

The Times They Are A-Changin

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 »

TES Matchup Battles: Grixis Delver

It is time for part two of the TES Matchup Battles series and this episode we take on Grixis Delver! Now for any of you long time legacy players we may not think of Grixis immediately when we hear someone say Delver of Secrets. Typically in the past Delver of Secrets decks have been Temur or Jeskai decks, but people have been moving away from cards like Stoneforge Mystic, Nimble Read More »

TES Matchup Battles: Death & Taxes

Every once in awhile it is a good idea to do a mental breakdown and matchup analysis of some of the key matchups that we are likely to play against in a tournament. The metagame is always shifting and decks are getting new toys to play with, and now it’s Death and Taxes (D&T) who has gained some great additions to their deck. Just understanding the key players in a Read More »

TES Infernal Tutoring # 8

It's once again a pleasure to welcome you in the Infernal Tutoring series! Be warned, this edition is stacked. Before jumping right back into action, I've been playing a bit with different deck lists as of late. From the get-go, I knew I needed to include Pulverize. I know there has been discussion about it, but yes, I've actually used Burning Wish for it and won a game after. However, it Read More »

Where You Want to Be

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. If you look over the last three events you'll find that a large portion of prison based strategies or other fast decks.   Eternal Read More »

Time & Mistakes

It's been a few months since the release of Conspiracy: Take the Crown and to be quite frank, the printings of Sanctum Prelate and Recruiter of the Guard haven't effected the metagame as we predicted.   10/22 Milwaukee Classic 10/16  Baltimore, Eternal Extravaganza 5 10/01 Indianapolis Classic 09/17 Orlando Classic 09/03 Richmond Classic 08/19 New Jersey Classic 08/13 Syracuse Classic 07/30 Baltimore Classic   Sometimes you're wrong. It's not that Sanctum Prelate isn't seeing any play, but without Read More »
