Over the last few weeks I've been testing a hybrid storm list, a mix between The EPIC Storm (TES) and Ad Nauseam Tendrils (ANT). Basically, TES with a Past in Flames engine built in. I've been receiving a lot of questions from individuals who've caught my sporadic games on cockatrice, let's answer some of them! The lists are below, with List A being traditional TES and List B being our Read More »
No one needs to sell me on why Xantid Swarm is a terrific Magic: The Gathering card. Trust me, I get it, I've been playing the card since 2006 and back then it was in my main deck! But with the metagame being as aggressive as it is, I don't believe our bug friend is very good at the moment.

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 »
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 »
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 »
The EPIC Storm approaches the Magdalen coast
While winning a GP is the goal of most Storm players, some of us are trapped to a LGS, or even worse, around a kitchen table, unable to even dream about moving forward with their decks. However, we’re still addicted. These Tendrils of Agony must be spread out. With no local game store, but with plenty of friends living on an Island, 250km 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 »
Since StarCityGames: Worcester I’ve been evaluating each card in the sideboard meticulously trying to find the most value out of the fifteen slots that we have. Earlier today I posted a theoretical sideboard on social media, I’m here to give some more in depth reasonings to my card choices.
Abrupt Decay – There really isn’t much else to say about this card, it over performed all weekend to the point where Read More »
Recent Changes with TES
Over the last few weeks there have been some changes to The EPIC Storm (TES). In talking to Kai Sawatari (Sawatarix on mtgthesource) and Peter Raab (Lemnear on mtgthesource), I was convinced to cut a discard spell in order to shove the fourth Infernal Tutor from the sideboard into the main deck. This was due to the success that Kai had at the grand prix in japan Read More »
