MTG History: My father has played Magic since it came out in 1993 so the game has always been around me. However, it wasn't until I was in the middle of high school in 2012 when I started drafting at my local game store. I quickly became more infatuated with Magic and played a lot of standard events up until I discovered storm. It instantly became my favorite mechanic in Magic and I have almost exclusively played the archetype since.

I play a lot of Magic and love pretty much every song Taylor Swift has ever released.

MTG History: Starting playing during Alara block and quickly jumped into competitive play. Wrote for Star City Games for 4 years, then got a bit into judging and became a Level Two Judge. Now I'm back to playing, trying to make some headway on the GP/PT circuit and learn as much as I can.
Title: Stormtrooper. About Me: I'm an IT consultant for software development, runner, robotics hobbyist, and would like to get into real estate in the future. MTG Accomplishments: Several GP cashes (4 legacy, 1 team limited, 1 limited), 2 Eternal Weekend (legacy) top 32's, and a few SCG cashes... MTG History: I started playing back in 2006, and I think it was right before 10th Edition came out. My parents took me to the local game shop to meet some people and potentially interest me in a hobby. I was immediately hooked by the game and left that day with my first booster packs along with a pile of random commons nobody wanted – my addiction had started. My first combo deck I played was Splinter Twin in Standard. I had a lot of success playing it, and it was just a matter of time before that combo urge broke into Legacy.
Title: Degenerate. About Me: Musician and life long gamer from Buffalo, NY. Vocalist of the Buffalo based Pop-Punk band “Real People” (2008-2014) and long time American XP leader in Pokémon Go (2016-2018).
