Since July's bannings of Deathrite Shaman and Gitaxian Probe, RUG Delver has returned as one of the most played decks in the format. With having a wide array of countermagic and mana denial, RUG Delver can be very challenging to play against, especially with the loss of Gitaxian Probe. On this month's Through the Looking Glass, we brought on Eric Read More »
RUG Delver Final Hand Answer
Hand 10: (on the play)
» Keep or Mulligan?
I'm a risk taker, you need to find a land and then either a black or red card off of Brainstorm. I like my chances for this (I'll be honest, I don't know the exact odds.), there's also other scenarios that include Lotus Petal.

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!

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.

BR Reanimator Final Hand Answer
Hand 10: (on the draw)
» Keep or Mulligan?
Most people correctly answered that this was a keep. This article's theme will be "Do not live in fear", and this is a great example of that. While your opponent could have a discard spell or even Chancellor of the Annex, you can't send this back. While you could just lose the game on Read More »

Before the bannings of Deathrite Shaman and Gitaxian Probe, Dragon Stompy was by far the most prominent prison strategy you would see in Legacy. With most fair decks having a very greedy manabase, Blood Moon was very, very good. However, I wouldn't expect to see Dragon Stompy diminish, as it is a very powerful deck.

With the recent banning of Gitaxian Probe and Deathrite Shaman people have been moving away from Grixis Delver for the more traditional version of RUG Delver. RUG Delver is a tempo deck that tries to use all of its resources to keep the opponent from gaining traction to set up their game plan, and then try to kill the opponent before they regain their balance. They do this by playing Read More »

...and to think on Wednesday afternoon I was telling Jerry Mee (host of Leaving A Legacy) I wasn't sure If I wanted to go.
I had just checked how long it would take me to get to Acton, MA from Syracuse, NY. In the northeast there's really only two seasons – winter & construction. Due to all of the roadwork being done, it was being estimated at a little over six Read More »
