We're back with the mailbox, here are some more Q&A's:
Do you ever miss Silence from the list?
The mana is so much better without white in the deck that it's tough to reminisce. I haven't missed Silence due to the fact that people no longer only fight combo on one axis – back during the years of 2010-2013 when Stifle and Spell Snare where in almost everyone's main deck, Silence was Read More »
This series will be a continuation of what I wrote while at Jupiter Games a few years back.
Game one on the play against Omnitell:
Hand: Gitaxian Probe, Ponder, Underground Sea, Dark Ritual, Duress, Bloodstained Mire and Infernal Tutor.
Would I keep this hand? Yes.
How to play: I would start off with Gitaxian Probe. My next decision would be based off of if I was under pressure of dying on the next turn, if their Read More »
Words are running from me as the conclusion to this adventure comes near. Following this article, only one should follow; bringing with it the news of my victory or failure. With a single practice night coming next Thursday and our final tournament on Saturday night, I can feel my heartbeat racing.
We’re ending this soon.
With this shorter article, I welcome you to a realm of irony. First of all, as Read More »
The weekend begins with being let out of work early Thursday afternoon, my car already packed, I hit 81S for roughly four hours. I drive by Philadelphia and then Baltimore before arriving in Sharon Springs, DC after about six hours worth of driving. I get to Georgia avenue and my GPS says that I’m only 4 miles away from my destination, after 35 minutes, I’m there.

Ah, tournament nights.
Those with electric sparkles in the air, with a pressure so strong it pushes everyone to their limits, aggravated by the strong winds outside? A shiver of survival where the tension is so dense it's palpable? You don't have to be in the hundreds for such a feeling. 6 players, a stormy night and an eerie house is all you need.
Preparing for the tournament, no cards showed up Read More »
There an old saying that “you gotta dance with the one that brung ya”. For me, the deck that “brung” me to Legacy was The Epic Storm. I was drawn to Legacy watching SCG Opens, back when Legacy coverage was more frequent. After seeing Tendrils of Agony resolve a few times, I knew I was going to end up playing Storm one way or another.

This is the first TES Mailbox, once or twice a month I’ll be answering questions from the community in the following format. I hope you enjoy.
Do you play TES instead of ANT because you think it is better or because you are more familiar with the deck interactions and playstyle? or maybe a combination of both? I am currently building ANT but to be fair I never gave TES Read More »
Before anything, I would like to take a moment to thank all of you for your amazing support. I didn't know the first article would have such an effect on this hidden player base The EPIC Storm seems to have. I'm glad this fills a need we never expected to be that big. The kind words on Cockatrice from some of you were really appreciated. With that said, let's get Read More »
GP Lille is in the books and what a blast it was! Close to 1700 Legacy aficionados battled for the crown in this year's only European Legacy Grand Prix over three days. The weekend was full of trials, side events and the intense 15 round swiss main event which was followed by a Top 8 elimination which climaxed with a Miracles mirror in the finals.
My expectation for the format on Read More »
