Time & Mistakes

It's been a few months since the release of Conspiracy: Take the Crown and to be quite frank, the printings of Sanctum Prelate and Recruiter of the Guard haven't effected the metagame as we predicted.   10/22 Milwaukee Classic 10/16  Baltimore, Eternal Extravaganza 5 10/01 Indianapolis Classic 09/17 Orlando Classic 09/03 Richmond Classic 08/19 New Jersey Classic 08/13 Syracuse Classic 07/30 Baltimore Classic   Sometimes you're wrong. It's not that Sanctum Prelate isn't seeing any play, but without Read More »

TES vs. Sanctum Prelate

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. When initially reading the pair of cards, my mind instantly went to, "Well, Death & Taxes just became a whole lot better". But Read More »

Fighting the Miracles Menace

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. On top of that, it is not exactly the easiest match-up to navigate even when you have all of the right pieces. While it would require more than a single article to teach you all of the tips and tricks necessary to beat Read More »

TES Infernal Tutoring # 7

Miracles, Sneak and Show and the like... the meta I used to play in surely has evolved. While Cockatrice initiated me to some of these match-ups, I wasn't prepared to face friends around a kitchen table with their brand new weapons. Armed with my dusty paper TES deck, with an admittedly outdated sideboard, I struggled to give them any kind of challenge. I also forgot how much it was rewarding to Read More »

TES Mailbox #9

Hi everyone! We're back with the mailbox, here are some more Q&A's: I have all of TES built except for the dual lands. What do you recommend as placeholders until I get the real thing? Five-color lands or Shock Lands? I don't recommend anything. Neither provide the necessary tools for the deck to be successful, you need to have shuffle effects for Brainstorm and the life-totals for Ad Nauseam. I recommend playing something Read More »

TES Infernal Tutoring # 6

Welcome back to the Infernal Tutoring series! This post-Grand Prix edition is meant to be a new step in the deck mastery, as it is now time to put this hard acquired knowledge into practice. For the summer, the Infernal Tutoring articles will go live once a month, which is a small drop in frequency. However, it also means that the Magdalen Legacy League is back in action, and there's Read More »

Grand Prix: Columbus (06/10-12/2016) 28th

My Grand Prix: Columbus weekend began with hitting the road early Friday morning, which was something I'm not used to. Normally I leave for trips after work on Friday, which works out pretty well, but Columbus is a seven hour drive. Joining me was Royce Walter, Adam Van Fleet and Aaron "Big Cat" Webster. It was very refreshing driving through the early morning and mid-afternoon on a long trip, rather Read More »
