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 »
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.

With the release of Conspiracy: Take the Crown, there's been two printings that heavily influence the EPIC Storm. Unfortunately, neither of these cards are tools for the deck - instead they're cards that help shut the storm down. I'm talking about Sanctum Prelate and Recruiter of the Guard.

It is no secret that Miracles is not only a tricky match-up for The Epic Storm, but is also one of the best decks in the format.

While it would require more than a single article to teach you all of the tips and tricks necessary to beat Read More »

EDITOR'S NOTE: This article was written before the full Eternal Masters spoiler was released.
With the spoiler season for Eternal Masters beginning, I figured that now would be a good time to discuss my thoughts on how the set will affect The Epic Storm. This won’t be an overly long article, as we are working with a lot of incomplete information and I am not a big fan of guessing at Read More »
I've been focusing my efforts over the last few months on Standard as I had two Grand Prix within driving distance. Now that the dust has settled on those, I've been back to counting to ten (and sometimes twenty)! Recently some of you may have seen me streaming while testing for the upcoming large Legacy events, I've been using the same list that I took second place with at an Read More »
It didn't take long for Oath of the Gatewatch to begin defining the Modern format. It is apparent to anyone paying attention that the Eldrazi menace is a powerful one, taking advantage of the incredible efficiency provided by Eye of Ugin and Eldrazi Temple. With 75% of the PT Oath of the Gatewatch Top 8 playing some variety of Reality Smasher, many are left wondering if we have a new Read More »
