Early Challenge

Making the best use of time. There’s a ton of things you can do and Nick struggled with making time for Magic. Now, he only focuses on the format of his next event.

Learning Moment

The first time you step out of your comfort zone, you’re going to lose a lot. So make the most of it.

Proudest Magic Moment

Top 8 at Grand Prix Barcelona, 2018.

What Have You Learned From Magic

Discipline. Hard work paying off.

Grand Prix Preparation

Nick is a Burn player and knew he was going to play his Boros Burn deck. To prepare though he updated his sideboard guide.

Biggest Mistake Players Make

Getting things you can’t control to get the better of you. (e.g. Playing against a more experienced player. You have no control over how much Magic your opponent has played.)

Parting Guidance

Focus on your current game. Don’t let things you can’t control affect you.
