TES Infernal Tutoring #22

With the release of Guilds of Ravnica, Legacy received one of the most powerful removal spells ever, Assassin's Trophy. As I was playing leagues, I was really hoping to run into this card more to see it in action. In this version of the list, there are two Past in Flames in the sideboard, which was an attempt to help the control match-ups. This plan was furthered by the second Read More »

Reading the Ropes - Getting More Mileage from Tutors

At this point in the series, I feel that I've covered a lot of the very basic concepts that go into piloting The EPIC Storm, and so now it is time to start looking at some more complicated or unorthodox ideas. The next few articles will touch on some ideas that might seem innocuous, but can have a major impact on your win percentage with the deck. It is likely Read More »

TES Infernal Tutoring #21

Welcome back to the Infernal Tutoring series! Hello Legacy Storm players! We are back with this month’s Infernal Tutoring article! Since my introductory article, we’ve seen some interesting changes in the Legacy metagame.

This might sound a bit counter-intuitive, but there is a possibility, as a storm player, that playing MTGO can make you worse at piloting your deck in paper (yep, I said it). Now, don't get me wrong, I think that playing MTGO is one of the most important things any magic player can do. It significantly increases your understanding of the game's rules and interactions because there's never any misinterpretation of 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 »

TES Infernal Tutoring #18

Welcome back to the Infernal Tutoring series! After a fair amount of testing, we decided that (v4.2) is the list we still want to be playing, at least for the time being. If you haven't, I highly recommend checking out Bryant's article The Importance of Confidence, as it goes into more detail regarding the switch back to the (v4.2) deck list. Personally, I am a fan of switching back. Pulverize is Read More »
