Leaving A Legacy: 5K (06/30/2018) - 1st Place

...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 »

SCG: Worcester (02/03-04/2018) - 16th

In the last month or so, I took a hard look at data from my spreadsheet and came to the conclusion that the reason I wasn't spiking any events is that I needed to be better than 50% against Grixis Delver. When talking to AJ Kerrigan, he had a lot of success when returning to the full suite of Empty the Warrens. When testing it myself, I've seen an increase Read More »

Eternal Weekend (10/21/17) - 23rd Place

Warning: I didn’t realize I would be writing a tournament report until the very later rounds of the tournament, so I didn't keep detailed notes in my earlier matches, and as you can imagine after playing 11 rounds in a day my memory was beginning to get fuzzy about the beginning rounds. Deck List Main Deck 4 Infernal Tutor 3 Burning Wish 1 Empty the Warrens 1 Ad Nauseam 4 Brainstorm 4 Read More »

Eternal Extravaganza VII Report (9/16/17) - 8th Place

Jim Baxter is a guest writer on theepicstorm.com The Epic Storm was a favorite of mine back in the days of City of Brass, Gemstone Mine, and Silence. I wasn’t terribly good, but I had a blast doing unfair things. At one point I dismantled it because I didn’t regularly play Legacy, and when I did, people wanted to play fair and interactive Magic. (How boring.) I grew up playing in Syracuse Read More »

Riders on the Storm: Top 8 with TES at the Guangzhou, China Legacy Invitational Tournament (07/01/2017)

Vincent Cheung is a guest writer on theepicstorm.com Hi guys. My name is Vincent Cheung, and I am a 24 year-old university student from Hong Kong. I have been playing Legacy Magic for one and a half years. I previously played Ad Nauseam Tendrils but switched over to The EPIC Storm after I discovered Bryant Cook's website. I recently finished in the Top 8 of a Guangzhou, China 80-person Legacy tournament Read More »

GP: Las Vegas (06/15-16/2017) - 80th Place

In the last four months, I've gotten into MTGO (as many people know). A big part of this was to help prepare for large events, one thing I found others doing was making spreadsheets to help them gather information. I decided to do the same, using the data I collected, it helped me make decisions based on hard numbers and facts about the deck. Below you will find two links: Read More »

SCG: Worcester (04/07-09/2017)

A little over two weeks ago, I made the decision to split my Mac's hard drive to run Bootcamp (I tried to run Parallels as well, but that just ran incredibly slowly). Something I've been pretty against for some time, I told myself I'd wait to run MODO until there was a version for OSX - well, it's 2017 and that doesn't exist yet. Wizards of the Coast needs to Read More »

Eternal Extravaganza VI (03/18/2017)

The last two months I've been primarily playing a lot of Standard Magic (I know, I know, Shame on me, etc.), I was heavily preparing for GP: Pittsburgh, GP: New Jersey & PPTQs playing a sweet Grixis Dynavolt Tower deck. In the process I became distant from Legacy, yet alone Storm. When I attended local Legacy events, I played Miracles or Sneak & Show (due to an unhealthy metagame). After Read More »

Grand Prix: Louisville (01/06-09/2017)

Do you ever feel like Magic: The Gathering events can be determined by one small instance during your day? Sometimes it seems as if an action in an early round will set the tone for the rest to come, good or bad. You draw three cards off a Brainstorm and it's Dark Ritual, Lion's Eye Diamond and Infernal Tutor - you just know that you're going to run hot. Then there are Read More »
