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 »

A little over two weeks ago, I made the decision to split my Mac's hard drive to run Bootcamp (I tried to run Parallels as well, but that just ran incredibly slowly). Something I've been pretty against for some time, I told myself I'd wait to run MODO until there was a version for OSX - well, it's 2017 and that doesn't exist yet. Wizards of the Coast needs to Read More »
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 »

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 »
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 »
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 »
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 »
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 »
