Worst Magic Moment

Win and in for a top 8 and Dan forgot to pay a cost and lost a game. Aaron is still in his low spot and is struggling right now with how to deal with consistent losses. Luke had to learn about ‘good’ decks the hard way. (By losing a lot.)

Proudest Magic Moment

Luke built his own deck and took it to a tournament where it turned some heads. Dan building a deck on his own and doing well at a tournament. He also loves showing off his collection. Aaron won a win-a-box event by playing to the top and then splitting in the final.

Biggest Mistake Players Make

Giving away too much information. Sideboarding and over boarding. Blood Moon.
