Today I Fucked Up

Mistakes Were Made I’m on a Greyhound heading out of Atlantic City. A low-grade hangover long since expired and replaced by that flat soda feeling that follows a day or two of excess and irresponsibility. My wallet thinner following a few bouts of bad calls, and the wrong side of rivered two pairs. My clothes drenched in the stink of stale cigarettes and faded dreams. Mistakes were made. I close my Read More »

TES Matchup Battles: Dragon Stompy

It is time for yet another edition of the TES Matchup Battles series and this episode we take on Dragon Stompy! Dragon Stompy is a prison aggro deck. It uses different lock pieces to disrupt the opponent's mana and making it more difficult to cast their spells. Dragon Stompy then follows up with a fast clock to try and kill the opponent before they can find answers to their lock pieces. Read More »

TES Mailbox #11

Hi everyone! We're back with the mailbox, here are some more Q&A's: You recently went 5-0 with a Grixis list. Does this mean you're off green again? Not necessarily, I switch lists a lot online to test different things. I'll say that the Grixis list felt a lot better to play, it was smoother and more consistent in almost every non-Miracles matchup. If Crow Storm was legal, would you play it? Totally! I think it's Read More »

Deck List Updates - Eternal Weekend & SCG:DC

Over the last few weeks I've played in three large Legacy events, this has caused me to question some slots in the deck. Below you can find my thoughts on these questionable slots and possible directions to where The EPIC Storm should be going.

Eternal Weekend (10/21/17) - 23rd Place

Warning: I didn’t realize I would be writing a tournament report until the very later rounds of the tournament, so I didn't keep detailed notes in my earlier matches, and as you can imagine after playing 11 rounds in a day my memory was beginning to get fuzzy about the beginning rounds.

Through the Looking Glass: Elves with Julian Knab

Special thanks to Julian Knab for his contributions to today's article.  Today, like Alice, we climb through the looking glass. Elves is one of the most powerful and popular decks in the current meta. The little green men can form a solid grindy game plan, or with the help of Glimpse of Nature and Natural Order, can combo off as quickly as turn two. The storm variants have a faster fundamental Read More »

TES Infernal Tutoring # 12

Welcome back to the Infernal Tutoring series! Hey Stormtroopers, I'm back with another episode of Infernal Tutoring. It has been almost 6 months since Sensei's Divining Top was banned and it appears the meta is starting to settle. Many people assumed Grixis Delver would become the top deck, but it appears from the last few months of data that 4c Control is actually the best performing, or at least most represented deck, Read More »

TES Matchup Battles: Lands

It is time for yet another edition of the TES Matchup Battles series and this episode we take on Lands! Jarvis Yu, one of the most well known Lands players, best describes Lands as a Life from the Loam deck. "With the ability to both recur lands and 'draw' three cards a turn by dredging, Life from the Loam allows the deck to operate. Most often used to recycle Wasteland after Wasteland Read More »

So Meta

Intro We are often asked what the best deck is, or the best build of TES and ANT. In truth there is no best version as every shift in the metagame changes the texture of how our deck operates and performs. The best build today won't be the best build next month, and cards that are bad today might just be what take TES to the top 8 of a Grand Read More »
