My Weekend in SeaTac (11/6-9/2015)

My Grand Prix: Seattle weekend began with waking up at 4:30am, my wonderful girlfriend driving me to the airport and meeting up with Eli Kassis, Paolo Cesari and Ozzie. For as early as it was, I was absolutely wired with excitement for this event. I missed Grand Prix: New Jersey last year due to my sister's wedding, there was no chance I was going to miss out on this! The Read More »

TES Mailbox #5

Hi everyone! We're back with the mailbox, here are some more Q&A's:   Do you often find yourself casting Burning Wish for Dark Petition and searching up Empty the Warrens to get an additional storm? How often do you Dark Petition for Ad Nauseam now that all 4 Infernal Tutors are in the main deck? In the last two large events I've cast the spell three times over twenty-four rounds – twice for Ad Nauseam and Read More »

STORMING INTO EE3 (10/24/2015): 11TH

The weekend of Eternal Extravaganza 3 (EE3) or as I like to call it, "A weekend at Aaron's" begins with me taking a half-day on Friday so that I could travel down to Allentown, PA from Syracuse, NY so that I could fit in getting some cards signed at Illuxcon!     For those of you who don't know, Illuxcon is an illustration convention held in Allentown, PA every year. Which was incredibly Read More »

From ANT to TES

Three weeks ago before the banning of Dig Through Time I decided that I should start play testing The Epic Storm. This is because the format had matured to the point where it had been warped to playing Dig Through Time or just win before the card can be cast. My reasoning for this was that TES is much better at getting under the Dig Through Time decks while still Read More »

Heart of the Storm - September 2015 B&R Update

Announcement Date: September 28, 2015 Effective Date: October 2, 2015 Magic Online Effective Date: October 7, 2015 Legacy: Dig Through Time is banned. Black Vise is unbanned. There it is: The big restriction everyone was expecting beforehand and it's a good one for the format, which suffered from the streamlining Dig Through Time had on control, aggro and combo decks leading to an undesirable state of similar looking decks with simply varying kill conditions. For me, its still Read More »

TES Vs. ANT

I read a lot of discussions around the internet and through coverage, people don't really seem to understand the differences between The EPIC Storm (TES) and Ad Nauseam Tendrils (ANT). Not only the card differences, but how they actually play differently and how the different versions have unique strengths. Let's start with the basics, TES is an Ad Nauseamand/or Empty the Warrens based deck while ANT is a Past in Flames/natural storm ("tutor chain") based deck. TES is Read More »

TES Mailbox #4

Hi everyone! We're back with the mailbox, here are some more Q&A's:   Why do you run a main deck Swamp rather than a Badlands? Basic lands are incredibly valuable against Tempo based strategies as well as against Death & Taxes and Lands due to Wasteland. The ability to search up a basic Swamp and cast a discard spell without having to worry about your land being destroyed is a very good feeling. I Read More »

Storm Hands #2

We're back with another Storm Hands – Let's dig in!   Game one on the play against Unknown: Hand: Chrome Mox, Lotus Petal, Rite of Flame, Rite of Flame, Dark Ritual, Burning Wish and Burning Wish. Would I keep this hand? Yes. If your opponent is playing blue, IF, there's roughly a 40% chance that they have Force of Will AND a blue card. Seems like very good odds for some turn one Goblins. How Read More »

Xantid Swarm Vs. The Metagame

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. Reasons Xantid Swarm is a great card Shuts of selective counterspells (Spell Read More »
