Riders on the Storm: Top 8 with TES at the Guangzhou, China Legacy Invitational Tournament (07/01/2017)

Vincent Cheung is a guest writer on theepicstorm.com Hi guys. My name is Vincent Cheung, and I am a 24 year-old university student from Hong Kong. I have been playing Legacy Magic for one and a half years. I previously played Ad Nauseam Tendrils but switched over to The EPIC Storm after I discovered Bryant Cook's website. I recently finished in the Top 8 of a Guangzhou, China 80-person Legacy tournament Read More »

TES vs ANT - 2017

In the past I wrote an article on The EPIC Storm (TES) and Ad Nauseam Tendrils (ANT), I believe it's about time we revisit this topic due to changes in the metagame. I've seen a number of forum posts and general questions on the topic, let's provide some clarity.

GP: Las Vegas (06/15-16/2017) - 80th Place

In the last four months, I've gotten into MTGO (as many people know). A big part of this was to help prepare for large events, one thing I found others doing was making spreadsheets to help them gather information. I decided to do the same, using the data I collected, it helped me make decisions based on hard numbers and facts about the deck. Below you will find two links: Read More »

Post-Miracles TES

Sensei's Divining Top was banned if you live under a rock and haven't heard. Other than Elves, I believe Storm is the deck that gains the most from this announcement. Because of this, The EPIC Storm went through an overhaul - see the changes below: Deck Lists Pre-Banning Decklist Main Deck 4 Burning Wish 4 Infernal Tutor 4 Brainstorm 4 Ponder 4 Gitaxian Probe 3 Cabal Therapy 3 Duress 1 Empty the Warrens Read More »

SCG: Worcester (04/07-09/2017)

A little over two weeks ago, I made the decision to split my Mac's hard drive to run Bootcamp (I tried to run Parallels as well, but that just ran incredibly slowly). Something I've been pretty against for some time, I told myself I'd wait to run MODO until there was a version for OSX - well, it's 2017 and that doesn't exist yet. Wizards of the Coast needs to Read More »

Eternal Extravaganza VI (03/18/2017)

The last two months I've been primarily playing a lot of Standard Magic (I know, I know, Shame on me, etc.), I was heavily preparing for GP: Pittsburgh, GP: New Jersey & PPTQs playing a sweet Grixis Dynavolt Tower deck. In the process I became distant from Legacy, yet alone Storm. When I attended local Legacy events, I played Miracles or Sneak & Show (due to an unhealthy metagame). After Read More »

The Times They Are A-Changin

I am always trying to find a way to innovate and make The EPIC Storm a better deck, it never ends. I mentioned at the end of my Grand Prix: Louisville article that I felt the deck needed to move the Bayou from the main deck to the sideboard for increased mana stability. I had two mulligans due to the Bayou not being the fourth copy of Bloodstained Mire, other Read More »

Grand Prix: Louisville (01/06-09/2017)

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 »

Mythic Games: December (2nd Place)

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 »
