Early Challenge

When Mani moved to Victoria for the university he had no friends and it was harder to play Magic. He turned to Magic Online.

Magic Milestones

First PTQ top 8, Mani played all the MTGO PTQs that he could. He remembers doing well but losing in the finals.

Worst Magic Moment

Mani was playing at a local event and he was undefeated going into the last round. In the last round, he got a deck check and as he waited he wandered around the store. The judge thought he was trying to get information and disqualified him!

Proudest Magic Moment

Grand Prix Champion Las Vegas 2017.

Biggest Growth

Becoming more social and enjoying people.

Biggest Mistake Players Make

Players get a situation stuck in their mind and don’t refresh the data as often as they should.

Parting Guidance

Don’t lose sight of the big picture by putting so much pressure on yourself.
