Thinking too far ahead. Cody would think about the end of the tournament instead of the current match.
Worst Magic Moment
Cody was playing against Brian Braun-Duin for a top 8 slot. He didn’t kill a key creature and then had to discard his removal spell.
Proudest Magic Moment
Playing for top 8 at Grand Prix Louisville, Cody had the foresight to play around a Vendilion Clique. This drew him into Griselbrand for the win.
Deepest Thing You’ve Learned About Yourself
Cody has learned he doesn’t do things halfway.
Biggest Mistake Players Make
Players look at Magic more as a job than a game. If you take the game so seriously then losses lot harder and you’re more likely to tilt.
