TES Infernal Tutoring #29

Hello Legacy Storm Players! Since our last Infernal Tutoring, Wizards released their latest limited set War of the Sparks. War of the Sparks has already made a huge impact on Legacy by printing some incredibly powerful planeswalkers; Karn, The Great Creator, Ugin, The Ineffable, Narset, Parter of Veils, and Tefari, Time Raveler to name just a few. Bolas's Citadel has birthed a new experimental Storm list, which Michael Cliffy wrote Read More »

Card Review: Echo of Eons

Echo of Eons Sorcery Each player shuffles their hand and graveyard into their library, then draws seven cards. Flashback (You may cast this card from your graveyard for its Flashback cost. Then exile it.) Initial Thoughts Right off the bat, it's very obvious that Echo of Eons has a great synergy with Lion's Eye Diamond; which discards your hand (including Echo of Eons) adds exactly enough mana to Flashback the blue sorcery. It's crucial Read More »

Bolas’s Citadel — a Deep Dive for Legacy

War of the Spark has been out for less than three weeks and already we are seeing a heavy impact of the set in all formats. From Neoform breaking Allosaurus Rider in Modern to Karn, The Great Creator finding Mycosynth Lattice to lock opponents out in Legacy and Vintage, there is no question that this is the most powerful set for overall eternal formats since Innistrad. More often than not, Read More »

Through the Looking Glass: Humans with Eddie Zamora

Special Guest A few words on Eddie Zamora (Yosoyez on MTGO): Eddie Zamora is a SoCal human who's favorite past times include jamming a turn one Noble Hierarch and having a pint with friends. Though he has his best results in Standard and Modern, he is commonly known as the "Legacy humans guy" due to constantly playing his brain child, 5-color Humans, and not being very quiet about it. Eddie is dedicated Read More »

TES Matchup Battles: Eldrazi Ramp

Eldrazi and ramp decks have existed ever since the printings of Cloudpost and Glimmerpost and the Eldrazi in legacy, and even in modern while they were legal. The goal is to assemble these posts along with artifact mana to accelerate out bigger expensive cards like Ugin, The Spirit Dragon and Karn, Scion of Urza. In order to survive the game long enough, Eldrazi Ramp uses cards like Chalice of the Read More »

Development and Progress: The EPIC Storm moving forward

”Without continual growth and progress, such words as improvement, achievement, and success have no meaning.” -Benjamin Franklin In a game of variance, there is no one true way to determine the best iteration of a deck. As metagames shift and adapt, one must also adapt the list they are playing with. Sometimes this means changing sideboard slots, replacing flex slots, or even swapping the number of key cards. In a format like Read More »

Matchup Mulligan: Maverick

UW Stoneblade Final Hand Answer Hand 10: (on the play) » Keep or Mulligan? Keep I was a little shocked at how many of you would mulligan this hand, you're only an initial mana source away from winning while being protected by our best disruption spell. I would lead off on Chrome Mox (Imprint: Burning Wish) and then cast Hope of Ghirapur. From here we have 12 lands that Read More »
