    Re: [Deck] T.E.S. - The EPIC Storm

    I didn't do any extensive testing, but I did test drawing 20 cards (which should be on the low end on average) in ANT assuming no mana floating and practically always found the win. Remember that...

    Re: [Deck] T.E.S. - The EPIC Storm

    After some initial goldfishing I'm convinced enough that this card essentially says 'you win the game'. That coupled with the fact that it's a viable late game kill condition (outside of specific...

    Re: [Primer] UB Death's Shadow

    Delver is terrible in this deck. It really is and this is no exaggeration. In all my games with this deck I've very rarely ever won on the back of Delvers. The best it does is absorb Plows for...

    Re: [Primer] UB Death's Shadow

    I did the math wrong, it's true that DRit is essentially +1 on Thought Scour. However, you don't need to waste your turn 1 on Scour necessarily. You can turn 1 fetch into Ponder/TSeize (2 in yard),...

    Re: [Primer] UB Death's Shadow

    In slower games I do get to cast the second Angler pretty often, though it's still a very bad card to draw in multiples early. I haven't tried 4 yet, though 3 is perfectly doable, so 4 shouldn't be...

    Re: [Primer] UB Death's Shadow

    Thought Scour is as fast as DRit at rushing Anglers. DRit is +2 mana, Scour is +2 cards in yard. Given that the card you draw off it could be the zero mana spell you needed in addition to cast Angler...

    Well, I'm still not sure about a 5 drop creature in a deck that otherwise tries everything it can to never have 5 lands in play. We have the lowest mana curve in Legacy with every standard maindeck...

    Symmetrical draw hosers are always going to have that issue that they just don't seem to have a place in any existing Legacy deck. The only decks I can think of that want them are non-blue non-aggro...

    I mean that in the literal sense. Brainstorm is not a very good Magic card in a vacuum, which means you don't have 12+ free shuffle effects in your deck.

    Well, that SCG article of his was posted before most of the companions were spoiled I think. So he kind of did say they were broken before we actually knew the final list of companions, though Lurrus...

    First, the 'anymore' kind of suggests that existing cards become more powerful with new sets releasing. In reality the power creep of newer sets has had the opposite effect, which is making...

    Well, now we all know this was secretly the reason why Borrower was playable in the first place. Both halves of the card are Pauper material at best, but getting a free card is just that powerful in...

    Cutting the 4th Ichorid and Thug is possible because more permanent discard outlets means both less bricking on dredgers and having more bodies to sac. In the same fashion DR gets better and more...

    It is insane, I'm trying to figure out where this lies in terms of power level between Angler and Arcanist, of which it is basically a mashup. 3/3 is not a lot of power for a CC2 creature, and unless...

    Questing Beast is a fringe playable 1-of in a GZS deck, which is fine, but nowhere near format warping.

    Mystical Dispute is probably the best one mana counter spell we have access to. Apart from killing a resolved Delver and dodging Veil it does most of what Pyroblast does. Dispel is just too narrow.
