What makes Magic: The Gathering fun for you?

Magic is a constant puzzle.

Early Challenge

Not playing the best deck. If it’s the best deck and nothing else is beating it then there is nothing wrong with playing it.

Worst Magic Moment

Ari was the “better-than-you” grinder for a while. This led to game losses and frustration that could have been a avoided. He learned that getting upset never helps.

Proudest Magic Moment

Seeing a close friend qualify for the Pro Tour.

Biggest Mistake Players Make

Logicking from the end. Players work backward and look for flawed interactions and then match results to those instances when in reality you could have been making the best play with the info you had at the time.
