Can I create a Scrum Board where my Stories are EPICS and Sub-tasks are STORIES. Thoughts?

This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Creating a Board

Wondering if I can create a Scrum Board where my Stories are EPICS and Sub-tasks are STORIES. Meaning, in Project A if I have 50 Epics and under those Epics I have 3 Stories each (total 150 Stories)...  Can I create a Scrum Board with an existing Project and tweak the Board filter query in such a way that Active Sprint will show Epics as Stories and the Stories under those Epics as Sub-tasks. Thanks!

No, this isn't possible. The Epic behavior is locked to the Epic issuetype. The Sub-task behavior is locked to Sub-task types. The Scrum boards do not allow you to map behaviors to issue types.
