We are often asked what the best deck is, or the best build of TES and ANT. In truth there is no best version as every shift in the metagame changes the texture of how our deck operates and performs. The best build today won't be the best build next month, and cards that are bad today might just be what take TES to the top 8 of a Grand Read More »
Almost a year ago, I wrote a fairly in-depth article on how to approach the Miracles matchup from the side of The Epic Storm. If you haven't read that yet, I recommend giving it a read despite that version of Miracles no longer being a deck. A lot of the philosophy can be used across many different matchups, and I'll also make reference to some of the conclusions here. Miracles Read More »
In the past I wrote an article on The EPIC Storm (TES) and Ad Nauseam Tendrils (ANT), I believe it's about time we revisit this topic due to changes in the metagame. I've seen a number of forum posts and general questions on the topic, let's provide some clarity.
TES - GP: Las Vegas - Bryant Cook

4 Infernal Tutor

I am always trying to find a way to innovate and make The EPIC Storm a better deck, it never ends. I mentioned at the end of my Grand Prix: Louisville article that I felt the deck needed to move the Bayou from the main deck to the sideboard for increased mana stability. I had two mulligans due to the Bayou not being the fourth copy of Bloodstained Mire, other Read More »
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.

It is no secret that Miracles is not only a tricky match-up for The Epic Storm, but is also one of the best decks in the format. On top of that, it is not exactly the easiest match-up to navigate even when you have all of the right pieces. While it would require more than a single article to teach you all of the tips and tricks necessary to beat Read More »
I've been focusing my efforts over the last few months on Standard as I had two Grand Prix within driving distance. Now that the dust has settled on those, I've been back to counting to ten (and sometimes twenty)! Recently some of you may have seen me streaming while testing for the upcoming large Legacy events, I've been using the same list that I took second place with at an Read More »
I'd like to start by saying this isn't necessarily a The EPIC Storm or even a Legacy article as the information can be used on other decks or even formats. At least once a week I receive an email or message asking why I don't play "X" in my sideboard. More recently, X is equal to the card Meltdown due to the recent potential rise of Chalice of the Void (the Read More »
With Star City Games: Philadelphia approaching, I've been doing more analyzing to the gain the slightest edges in match-ups. Since my last article, Jordon Robbins has won an SCG IQ and top 8'd a classic, with a list similar enough to the standard. The main difference being the second Empty the Warrens in the sideboard. I have tested three in the sideboard for Death & Taxes as well as Delver Read More »
