The EPIC Storm


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 »

TES 2016 - Pimp Deck Update

For those of you unfamiliar, I have posted a yearly update of my deck in the Pimp Legacy Decks thread on MTGthesource ever since 2008 (I keep links to each year's update on the Resource Links page). Below you will find my storm deck's main deck, sideboard and some additional cards! You can also find two other Pimp Deck updates: Modern Storm |  Godo EDH Main Deck: Sideboard and Read More »

TES Matchup Battles: Death & Taxes

Every once in awhile it is a good idea to do a mental breakdown and matchup analysis of some of the key matchups that we are likely to play against in a tournament. The metagame is always shifting and decks are getting new toys to play with, and now it’s Death and Taxes (D&T) who has gained some great additions to their deck. Just understanding the key players in a 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 »

TES Infernal Tutoring # 8

It's once again a pleasure to welcome you in the Infernal Tutoring series! Be warned, this edition is stacked. Before jumping right back into action, I've been playing a bit with different deck lists as of late. From the get-go, I knew I needed to include Pulverize. I know there has been discussion about it, but yes, I've actually used Burning Wish for it and won a game after. However, it 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 »

Where You Want to Be

Other than a terrific reference to Taking Back Sunday's second album, where you want to be as a Legacy storm pilot right now is playing The EPIC Storm. I know, I know... "Look, Bryant is preaching about his deck again." Well, that's true - but for good reason. If you look over the last three events you'll find that a large portion of prison based strategies or other fast decks.   Eternal Read More »

Time & Mistakes

It's been a few months since the release of Conspiracy: Take the Crown and to be quite frank, the printings of Sanctum Prelate and Recruiter of the Guard haven't effected the metagame as we predicted.   10/22 Milwaukee Classic 10/16  Baltimore, Eternal Extravaganza 5 10/01 Indianapolis Classic 09/17 Orlando Classic 09/03 Richmond Classic 08/19 New Jersey Classic 08/13 Syracuse Classic 07/30 Baltimore Classic   Sometimes you're wrong. It's not that Sanctum Prelate isn't seeing any play, but without Read More »

TES vs. Sanctum Prelate

With the release of Conspiracy: Take the Crown, there's been two printings that heavily influence the EPIC Storm. Unfortunately, neither of these cards are tools for the deck - instead they're cards that help shut the storm down. I'm talking about Sanctum Prelate and Recruiter of the Guard. When initially reading the pair of cards, my mind instantly went to, "Well, Death & Taxes just became a whole lot better". But Read More »
