Early Challenge

Not sure what he was good at. Zac started to critically analyze his own games to learn what he was good at.

Worst Magic Moment

Zac struggled for an entire Standard season. He realized he was misevaluating the meta and kept losing to cards he thought was bad.

Proudest Magic Moment

Making top 8 for the first time at Grand Prix New Jersey.

What Have You Learned From Magic

Zac has learned to try and be very accepting of others.

Biggest Mistake Players Make

Not being critical enough of your own games. Players sometimes think they’re favored when they’re not.

Parting Guidance

Be kind to people. You feel better and the people around you feel better. It eventually circles back and keeps growing.
