TES Infernal Tutoring # 10

Welcome back to the Infernal Tutoring series! Hey Stormtroopers, my name is Cyrus and I am new to theepicstorm.com. I go by cyruscg on any magic related website that I frequent, and I am a San Francisco Bay Area magic player and Magic the Gathering Online grinder. I have been playing The EPIC Storm for the past 4 months, so I am very new to the deck. I am very excited Read More »

TES Infernal Tutoring # 9

Welcome back to the Infernal Tutoring series! This edition should show a major shift in my attempted learning process. As such, we'll start this article with some (minimal) applied logic. To contextualize, with all the talks and discussions around our favorite deck, I couldn't help but notice that I as a player had been stagnant for quite a while. My win rate on Cockatrice had never been so low and my confidence 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 »

TES Infernal Tutoring # 7

Miracles, Sneak and Show and the like... the meta I used to play in surely has evolved. While Cockatrice initiated me to some of these match-ups, I wasn't prepared to face friends around a kitchen table with their brand new weapons. Armed with my dusty paper TES deck, with an admittedly outdated sideboard, I struggled to give them any kind of challenge. I also forgot how much it was rewarding to Read More »

TES Infernal Tutoring # 6

Welcome back to the Infernal Tutoring series! This post-Grand Prix edition is meant to be a new step in the deck mastery, as it is now time to put this hard acquired knowledge into practice. For the summer, the Infernal Tutoring articles will go live once a month, which is a small drop in frequency. However, it also means that the Magdalen Legacy League is back in action, and there's Read More »

TES Infernal Tutoring # 5

Without a doubt, practice makes perfect. While I still consider myself a below average player, I can now proudly say that I am no longer a free win on Cockatrice! Being cannon fodder was fun for a while, but I'm glad we could move on and be a bit more technical. The Infernal Tutors' teachings are slowly building a better player, and I hope they're having the same effect on Read More »

TES Infernal Tutoring # 4

GP: Columbus is coming fast and Cockatrice is surely aware of it!

TES Infernal Tutoring # 3

We're back again with a new edition of Infernal Tutoring! After our last session on macro management and overall strategies, this week focuses in the opposite direction: small, tactical plays to grind out an edge and open the breach for The EPIC Storm to rage. For this week, the latest version of The EPIC Storm was used. It is, of course, available on the home page.   Main Deck 4 Burning Wish 4 Infernal Tutor 4 Brainstorm 4 Read More »

TES Infernal Tutoring # 2

It was only a matter of time before I went back to Cockatrice to try to learn more about our favorite deck. The feedback on the last article was amazing, please remember that we read every single comment and try to improve according to your suggestions. The last article taught me one major lesson: Empty the Warrens is a good card, but it needs to be used properly – too few Goblins, too late, is Read More »
