Early Challenge

Christian played really well and made day 2 at his first GP. But even though he played well and got a good result it wasn’t enough. This early challenge was also his lowest point. He learned to embrace variance.

Proudest Magic Moment

Making top 8 at a National tournament for the first time.

What Have You Learned From Magic

Make the best of any situation you’re freed with.

Biggest Mistake Players Make

Players keep too many hands. You need to be more willing to toss an OK seven-card hand for the chance of a great six-carder.

How to Effectively Prepare for a Big Event

Christian reviewed the decks that did well in the most recent event and then studied the metagame.

Parting Guidance

Keep trying. Never give up even when you lose.
