TES Matchup Battles: Turbo Depths

Turbo Depths is a combo deck that tries to generate a Marit Lage token (20/20 Flying Indestructible) by either removing all of the counters with Vampire Hexmage or by creating a copy of Dark Depths with 0 counters using Thespian's Stage. They try to do this very quickly (hence the name "Turbo Depths"), but also trying to balance that with protection and disruption. Like most combo decks their deck is 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.

Through the Looking Glass: Miracles with Anuraag Das and Sam Roukas

Special thanks to Anuraag Das and Sam Roukas for their contributions to this article.  Miracles, with and without Sensei's Divining Top, has been a natural predator of The Epic Storm for many years.

Miracles Final Hand Answer Hand 10: (on the draw) » Keep or Mulligan? Mulligan In the responses to the last article, players were unsure if this was a keep or a mulligan.

In the last article we talked about how Miracles' weakness is their early game and how strong of a late game they Read More »

Matchup Mulligan: Miracles

Lands Final Hand Answer Hand 10: (on the draw) » Keep or Mulligan? Keep This is a keep, but a hesitant "loose" keep. I was actually somewhat shocked that no one else found the same way, I think the issue is/was not taking enough time to properly analyze the hand. The most common response to this hand was, "if you keep hand seven, then you keep this hand too", Read More »

TES Matchup Battles: Aluren

Aluren is an archetype based around, and abusing, the card Aluren. It does this by having an instant speed combo, and a lot of value creatures to make removal spells worse. The combo is to resolve an Aluren to play Parasitic Strix + Cavern Harpy to return the Parasitic Strix, and then use the Cavern Harpy's second ability to return itself to keep repeating this process until the opponent is Read More »
