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 »
Do you ever feel like Magic: The Gathering events can be determined by one small instance during your day? Sometimes it seems as if an action in an early round will set the tone for the rest to come, good or bad. You draw three cards off a Brainstorm and it's Dark Ritual, Lion's Eye Diamond and Infernal Tutor - you just know that you're going to run hot. Then there are Read More »

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 »
Last month I played my "new list" to a second place finish at Mythic Games. This month, I did the same exact thing. I've been playing in two local events a week with the deck as well as a bunch of games online and have been having a lot of success. I think for the time being that I've found the sweet-spot with the hybrid list (who knows how long Read More »
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 »

"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.
