279: Don’t Let the Fear of Losing Hold You Back with Aaron Barich
Aaron Barich has been playing Magic since he was 5 and is now a regular of competitive Magic. With some aggressive brewing, he has made a name for himself on the SCG Circuit. His Pro Tour grind began at Battle for Zendikar with a highlight of a Top 8 in Grand Prix Memphis 2018. Aaron lives in Gulfport, MS.
Card availability was really tough for Aaron. He took what he had and made it work. Aaron made friends and borrowed cards.
Worst Magic Moment
Aaron was disqualified for seeking during a draft at his first SCG event. He didn’t know how to communicate his thoughts to the judge and feels that would have made a difference. Judges are there to help, they are not your enemy.
Proudest Magic Moment
SCG open in Dallas-Aaron put together a deck of his own design and won the event.
What Have You Learned From Magic

Each of your opponents and yourself should enjoy each game.
Biggest Mistake Players Make

Have fun! Enjoy the game and the process.
