TES Infernal Tutoring # 5

Without a doubt, practice makes perfect. While I still consider myself a below average player, I can now proudly say that I am no longer a free win on Cockatrice! Being cannon fodder was fun for a while, but I'm glad we could move on and be a bit more technical. The Infernal Tutors' teachings are slowly building a better player, and I hope they're having the same effect on Read More »

Eternal Masters and the Epic Storm

EDITOR'S NOTE: This article was written before the full Eternal Masters spoiler was released. With the spoiler season for Eternal Masters beginning, I figured that now would be a good time to discuss my thoughts on how the set will affect The Epic Storm. This won’t be an overly long article, as we are working with a lot of incomplete information and I am not a big fan of guessing at Read More »

The Current State: Massacre

I've been focusing my efforts over the last few months on Standard as I had two Grand Prix within driving distance. Now that the dust has settled on those, I've been back to counting to ten (and sometimes twenty)!  Recently some of you may have seen me streaming while testing for the upcoming large Legacy events, I've been using the same list that I took second place with at an Read More »

TES Infernal Tutoring # 2

It was only a matter of time before I went back to Cockatrice to try to learn more about our favorite deck. The feedback on the last article was amazing, please remember that we read every single comment and try to improve according to your suggestions. The last article taught me one major lesson: Empty the Warrens is a good card, but it needs to be used properly – too few Goblins, too late, is Read More »

TES Mailbox #8

Hi everyone! We're back with the mailbox, here are some more Q&A's:   What storm variant is currently better positioned during the Eldrazi menace, ANT or TES? I'm an ANT player who is currently trying TES. This could be a whole article in itself, but I'll keep it brief. The differences between the two storm decks is their combo turn, ANT's is often turn three which allows for several hate pieces to hit the Read More »

A Storm over Innistrad

Every spoiler season, storm players from far and wide rush to talk about all the new cards that they think will take storm to the next level. The Epic Storm is no stranger to this, and thanks to Burning Wish, people often love to pick out every single corner case scenario they can think of that might make any sorcery that costs four or more into a game winning card.

Storming into EE4 Satellite (03/19/2016): 2nd Place

After writing about some of my favorite TES Memories I had an itch to play Grapeshot again. I mulled over deck slots, like moving the Bayou to the main deck for the millionth time. I ultimately landed on Massacre. The reason being, according to, Death & Taxes is only 2.86% of the metagame.   Waking up at 5:30am to get to the Tales of Adventure Eternal Extravaganza 4 Satellite event wasn't Read More »
