Samuel Ihlenfeldt has just started making a name for himself by busting onto the Magic scene when he made Top 8 at Pro Tour Ixalan. Sam lives in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Innistrad/Khans of Tarkir
Sam used to be afraid of big tournaments. But by going over and over again he got past that feeling.
Worst Magic Moment
Sam made it to the top 8 of an RPTQ and lost. He recognizes he made mistakes but in the match that mattered he mentally confounded himself and beat himself up.
Proudest Magic Moment
Top 8 at PT Ixalan. But also, when Sam learned that two of his closest friends were going to PT Rivals of Ixalan. Sam made top 8 he knew he’d be going with his friends.

Biggest Mistake Players Make
Not breathing. You need oxygen. Write down a reminder and breathe.
