17: Dan Jordan Shares Why You Should Test Outside Your Normal Group
Dan Jordan has 3 Pro Tour top 16s, 4 Grand Prix top 8s, and 4 Star City Games Open wins under his belt. He has also top 75’d another Pro Tour and has cashed in numerous other Grand Prix.
Dan admits to being a terrible card evaluator but still thinks about cards as they are released and their possible impact on Standard.
Sealed: Identify a deck plan and build around that.
Draft: Be very mindful of your mana curve.
Find A team. Ideally you’ll want a team with Pro players but if you can’t find one then just get on A team that play tests regularly.
Take good notes and don’t waste play testing time. Be mindful of “inbred” play testing.
Invest in Standard and stick with your deck as you improve and move up to bigger tournaments.
