Playing his own thing until he saw others playing really good decks. He copied those decks and started doing really well. He learned to embrace the works of others.
Worst Magic Moment
Matt made it to the finals of a big event and would have gone to Nationals if he won. He lost and took a break from Magic. Taking a break isn’t always bad.
