Matchup Mulligan: Elves

Eldrazi Final Hand Answer Hand 10: (on the play) » Keep or Mulligan? Mulligan The crowd seemed to be split 50/50 on this decision, which is good, it means people are thinking about these! That said, to me, it's a Mulligan. If you were to keep this hand, the correct line of play would be to cast Chrome Mox (imprint: Infernal Tutor), Duress, play Bloodstained Mire and pass. This leaves Read More »

TES Infernal Tutoring #15

Since our last Infernal Tutoring session, we've had a couple minor tweaks to our deck list. We cut the copy of Telemin Performance in our sideboard for a fourth copy of Empty the Warrens. This decision was brought upon by the fact that Grixis Delver is the best deck in the format, and Empty the Warrens is incredible in that matchup. The other reasoning is that we only use Telemin Read More »

TES Mailbox #12

Hi everyone! We're back with the mailbox, here are some more Q&A's: How do you know when to go for Empty the Warrens or Ad Nauseam? There are no defined rules. Everything is based on game states: Whats our life total? What does our hand consist of? Whats the match-up? What is the opponent's board? Do we know anything about their hand? The answer is based on context. Is it still correct Read More »

Through the Looking Glass: Lands with Jarvis Yu

Special thanks to Jarvis Yu for his contributions to today's article.  Lands is a legacy mainstay that has grown in popularity over the last few years. Until recently, Lands was always seen as a free win for The Epic Storm, but as Lands players have gained access to more powerful lands such as Thespian's Stage, the match-up has definitely seen a paradigm shift. The natural improvement of their other match-ups has Read More »

TES Matchup Battles: Eldrazi

Eldrazi is a fairly new deck thanks to the recent Eldrazi additions from Oath of the Gatewatch. The "Stompy" archetype itself has been around for a very long time and its plan is to use fast mana to accelerate out lock pieces, and then follow them up with a fast clock to pressure the opponent. The idea behind this is that by accelerating out lock pieces before the opponent can Read More »

Matchup Mulligan: Eldrazi

4c Pile Final Hand Answer Hand 10: (on the play) » Keep or Mulligan? Keep Correctly, most people determined this is a keep. However, I think it is't an immediate decision. What this hand needs is a "tutor effect", specifically Infernal Tutor since we're short on initial mana sources. Thankfully there's three looks with the scry from mulliganing and two copies of Gitaxian Probe, which would allow a second initial mana Read More »
