Deck List


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 »

Mythic Games: November (2nd Place)

After a hot 3-0 start in Star City Games: Baltimore last month, I crashed and burned – losing twice to Shardless BUG and once to a Stoneblade variant. Slightly frustrated, I went back to the drawing board. Something I've been working on for awhile is finding the right amount of consistency while maintaining explosiveness. It's a delicate balance that is often tough to find because there aren't really too many flexible 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 »

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 mtggoldfish.com, 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 »

STORMING INTO PHILADELPHIA, PA (02/26/2016): AFTERMATH

At the end of the day Saturday, I had a pretty average record of 6-3. Which was not good enough for day 2. I don't necessarily blame my deck list for my mediocrity on the weekend. Which you can view below:   Main Deck 4 Burning Wish 4 Infernal Tutor 4 Brainstorm 4 Ponder 4 Gitaxian Probe 4 Cabal Therapy 2 Duress 1 Empty the Warrens 1 Ad Nauseam 4 Rite of Flame 4 Dark Ritual 4 Lion's Eye Diamond 4 Lotus Petal 3 Chrome Mox 4 Read More »
