What Have You Learned From Magic

Things don’t come easy. You have to work.

Biggest Mistake Players Make

Giving up before the game is over.

How to Effectively Prepare for a Big Event

Karl goes through the spoiler twice and rates the cards himself. Then he needs LSVs Set review. He’ll attend the pre-release and play as much as he can online.
