Today, we're going to deviate a bit from our normal overview article format, and instead do a deep dive into something I've been wishing to write about for a while. The desire to share this has simply been...burning within me..
I think you can see where I'm going with this.
We are going to talk about the greatest card in our deck, the one that sets our deck apart from all of Read More »
Special thanks to Brian Braun-Duin for his contributions to today's article.
Grixis Control has been one of, if not the most popular deck in legacy for a while now. It's strong combination of discard spells and countermagic can be a challenge for The EPIC Storm to win through. This month we brought on platinum pro, Brian Braun-Duin, to share some of his thoughts and wisdom on what I would definitely consider Read More »
Death's Shadow Hand Answer
Hand 10: (on the play)
» Keep or Mulligan?
I would hope most people would keep this, but recently I've found less experienced players addressing their concerns about keeping "no-land hands" against blue decks. I think this comes from the Ad Nauseam Tendrils (ANT) mindset. Something I believe is often forgotten is that these decks, while very similar, are actually pretty different at times. Read More »
Goblins is one of the most historic legacy decks because it has existed since the inception of legacy. Goblins has significantly decreased in popularity over the past several years due to the printing of Deathrite Shaman, and a few other cards, but since its banning people have been trying it out again, and we need to be prepared. Goblins is a unique deck in that it is a mono-red deck Read More »
At this point in the series, I feel that I've covered a lot of the very basic concepts that go into piloting The EPIC Storm, and so now it is time to start looking at some more complicated or unorthodox ideas. The next few articles will touch on some ideas that might seem innocuous, but can have a major impact on your win percentage with the deck. It is likely Read More »
Welcome back to the Infernal Tutoring series!
Hello Legacy Storm players! We are back with this month’s Infernal Tutoring article! Since my introductory article, we’ve seen some interesting changes in the Legacy metagame.

When people think about the types of cards that The EPIC Storm plays, rarely will people mention removal spells. The deck has played a variety of removal over the years, including bounce spells, spot removal, and mass removal. In the current iteration of the sideboard, let's take a look at the removal there!

Esper Stoneblade and other Stoneblade variations have been around for a long time ever since the printing of Stoneforge Mystic and Jace, the Mind Sculptor. It has gone through waves of success from being one of the best decks, down to pretty bad, and then back up to good again. Because of the recent bannings over the past year or two, especially Deathrite Shaman, there is more of a reason Read More »

Burn Final Hand Answer
Hand 10: (on the draw)
» Keep or Mulligan?
I read a lot of back and forth on this hand. While I'm not sure of a definite answer, I'd probably keep it knowing I had a scry and a draw step to help fix things. The downside is the earliest you can combo off is turn two with a hand like this, which means likely Read More »
