Worst Magic Moment
Pro Tour Shadows over Innistrad. Arne was crushed in the draft and didn’t make day 2. Sleep well.
He learned you should sleep well before events. He stayed up until 2 am the night before.
Proudest Magic Moment
Top 8 @ GP Paris – He felt a feeling of freedom He was screaming “You did it!” in his head.
Deepest Thing You’ve Learned About Yourself
Arne loves to travel and be with friends.
Biggest Mistake Players Make
Tapping mana wrong. Untapped mana represents something. Sending messages is part of Magic, make sure you’re sending the right messages all the time.
Also, players often think they are the aggressor when they’re not.
How to Effectively Prepare for a Big Event
Arne traveled every weekend to a tournament somewhere. He consumed Magic content (articles + videos) and played a lot on XMage. This helped him make his GP top 8.
