Early Challenge

Quinton qualified for UK Nationals and quickly learned that he struggled with the draft. He went home and started drafting on Magic Online.

Worst Magic Moment

At Malaysia Nationals, Quinton made it to the finals and lost. He learned it doesn’t matter what got you to the top 8, you have to play well all the way.
He also learned you need to have fun playing Magic.

Proudest Magic Moment

Qualifying for the Pro Tour Kyoto through the RPTQ System.

What Have You Learned From Magic

Hard work pays off.

Preparation For Modern

Quinton expected creature heavy aggro decks based on the results of previous events. So he tested and found a deck that was well positioned. The key is to study the format and test.

Biggest Mistake Players Make

Going into autopilot. When players go into autopilot, they don’t think about the game or the lines of play.

Parting Guidance

Magic is a hobby, so have fun. The more fun you have the better you’ll do at competitive.
