TES Infernal Tutoring #19

Welcome back to the Infernal Tutoring series! Hello Legacy Storm players! My name is Joshua Hughes, and I've been given the most distinct honor of taking over the Infernal Tutoring series on a bi-monthly basis, trading off with the very talented Alex McKinley! My introduction into writing for Infernal Tutoring could not have come at a more turbulent yet interesting time. Halfway through writing my first draft of this very article, 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 »

Reading the Ropes - Using Draw Spells

Hello everyone and welcome back to Reading the Ropes! In this article, we are going to cover the basics of getting the most mileage out of your draw spells. Knowing how to effectively use your draw spells can seem marginal, but over a large sample size can really increase your win percentage. It's an incredibly complex topic with a lot of contextual aspects, but the goal of this article is to Read More »

TES Infernal Tutoring #17

Since Grand Prix Seattle, we have been testing new lists to see if any of them are an improvement over V4.2. This led to the creation of V4.4, which has more or less been an alternative to V4.2 if anything. I don't believe either one of the deck lists is strictly better than the other. I will say though, the second main deck Empty the Warrens has been great for Read More »

TES Infernal Tutoring #16

Starting with Grand Prix Seattle, we decided to cut green again and go back to a Grixis build, this gave us v4.2. I am a big fan of this decklist, the addition of the fourth Chrome Mox in the sideboard has been amazing every time I brought it in for the decks we want it against, such as Grixis Delver, or any prison deck variant. We also have another new Read More »

Reading the Ropes - Mulliganing

Hello everyone and welcome back to Reading the Ropes! In this article, we are going to cover the basics of how to mulligan with The Epic Storm. Knowing how to mulligan is an incredibly intricate concept that can't easily be covered in one article, but my goal is to provide you the tools to evaluate hands in various general contexts, from which you can extrapolate a lot of meaningful knowledge. For Read More »

TES Infernal Tutoring #15

Since our last Infernal Tutoring session, we've had a couple minor tweaks to our deck list. We cut the copy of Telemin Performance in our sideboard for a fourth copy of Empty the Warrens. This decision was brought upon by the fact that Grixis Delver is the best deck in the format, and Empty the Warrens is incredible in that matchup. The other reasoning is that we only use Telemin Read More »

Reading the Ropes - Winning the Game

Hello everyone and welcome back to Reading the Ropes! In the last article, we covered the pros and cons of various win conditions in the deck. Hopefully, you took away from that article that a lot of our wins will come from Empty the Warrens or Ad Nauseam. The next step is to figure out how we actually win the game with those cards, especially if we do not have them Read More »

TES Infernal Tutoring #14

Since the last segment, our deck list has switched to the current standard of running the green splash for Abrupt Decay and Xantid Swarm (v3.9). This deck list is much stronger in the current metagame as Miracles has grown to be one of the most popular decks, with Abrupt Decay being the only viable answer to Counterbalance. This deck list has proven to be a big success for many pilots of Read More »
