I brewed up a UB control deck but my counters, discard, and removal weren't strong enough to beat mono black. A full blown emergency. Sirens going off. I tried to call 911 but the lines were busy. I woke up screaming; phew, it was all a dream. Then I 4-1d a league with UW. https://t.co/eLidtcH9ku

Was weird to sit down at the final draft table of the team series as the only challenger with five pros. Always the dilemma tough defeats – retire more completely or try to regain past form? It’s an eternal struggle for hobbyists like me.

These are decks I could have played against with Blazing Shoal Infect. That was a fun tournament. https://t.co/lgwCqqZ61g

I would have more confidence in Wizards moving forward if they would acknowledge mistakes made and lessons learned in moving forward.
Ex: Forsythe's article on Skullclamp. This is the type of ban notice I want for Oko, unlike the status quo of but…MY TEAM DID WELL!

When they let you get really far into your combo and stop you in the middle with "I have a response to that" pic.twitter.com/fdyWN84bhU
