Matchup Mulligan: Death's Shadow

Burn Final Hand Answer Hand 10: (on the draw) » Keep or Mulligan? Keep I read a lot of back and forth on this hand. While I'm not sure of a definite answer, I'd probably keep it knowing I had a scry and a draw step to help fix things. The downside is the earliest you can combo off is turn two with a hand like this, which means likely Read More »

TES Infernal Tutoring #20

Welcome back to the Infernal Tutoring series! My name is Alex McKinley and I take a break from thinking about math and card choices to actually play some magic! I think I've found some situations that are a bit off the beaten path, where we are not always looking to go off this turn. When I'm practicing the deck, I am often goldfishing in my spare time, and finding the lines Read More »

Through the Looking Glass: RUG Delver with Eric Vergo

Special thanks to Eric Vergo for his contributions to today's article. Since July's bannings of Deathrite Shaman and Gitaxian Probe, RUG Delver has returned as one of the most played decks in the format. With having a wide array of countermagic and mana denial, RUG Delver can be very challenging to play against, especially with the loss of Gitaxian Probe. On this month's Through the Looking Glass, we brought on Eric Read More »

RUG Delver Final Hand Answer Hand 10: (on the play) » Keep or Mulligan? Keep I'm a risk taker, you need to find a land and then either a black or red card off of Brainstorm. I like my chances for this (I'll be honest, I don't know the exact odds.), there's also other scenarios that include Lotus Petal. Burn Pre-board Hand 1: (on the play) » Read More »

Reading the Ropes - Using Discard Spells

In this article, I'm going to discuss the discard spells in The Epic Storm, and the different ways to use them in order to have the highest impact. This article was initially supposed to be much longer and much more complex, but the banning of Gitaxian Probe meant the removal of Cabal Therapy from most deck lists. Cabal Therapy was a card with an immense amount of strategic depth to Read More »

Matchup Mulligan: RUG Delver

BR Reanimator Final Hand Answer Hand 10: (on the draw) » Keep or Mulligan? Most people correctly answered that this was a keep. This article's theme will be "Do not live in fear", and this is a great example of that. While your opponent could have a discard spell or even Chancellor of the Annex, you can't send this back. While you could just lose the game on Read More »
