The Grapeshots of Wrath: A Legacy TES Report.

To the city of Ottawa and part of the old city of Orleans, the last storm spell came gently, and it did not drain life or produce goblins. The grapes shot and re-shot tiny creatures. The last grapes shot at players and scattered fallen opponents and hate cards along the sides of the tables so that the city of Ottawa and the city of Orleans began to disappear under the power of the storm. Last...

Legacy Combo: Paul Clifford does The Epic Storm (TES)

It was a dark and stormy night; the dice tumbled in torrents – except at occasion rolls off the table, when the Storm count was checked by a gleeful Flusterstorm which swept up all the copies (for it is in Ottawa that our scene lies), rattling over the Chalice of the Voids, and fiercely agitating the players of non-blue decks that struggled against the darkness. If there's any intro that is...

Going for the Gold: Leaving a Legacy with Grixis Delver in Vegas (6th)

Before we even get into today's article, just in case you missed the title.... I finally secured my second Grand Prix Top 8 in my Magic career at GP Vegas, in Legacy! Not only that, but this finish allowed me to lock up Gold for the second consecutive year in a row, and made it so that I no longer need any more tournament results. Man, does that feel nice! This Top 8 feels like it has been such a...

Fear and Lifelink in Las Vegas: A Legacy Grand Prix Report

We were somewhere in round five on the edge of the tournament when the caffeine began to take hold. I remember saying something like, “I lost the die roll; maybe you should start first…” And suddenly there was a terrible presence all around us and the sky was full of what looked like a giant jellyfish, tentacles swooping and flashing around the True-Name Nemesis, which could only hit for...
