Hello, everyone! Welcome to my profile. Feel free to friend/follow me for information involving my article series or podcast!

I've been playing Magic since January of 2013 when my friend and now podcast co-host EAK1791 first taught me the game. Starting out of the gates as a mill player, I've moved from deck to deck finding what I enjoy most. I began making content soon after joining this site, and have been making various forms of MTG content ever since!
I help in the forums and coordinate content for the site. I am able to create, edit, and publish my own content and can also aid others who wish to do the same! If you have any ideas or questions, refer to the section below for those who wish to make content.
I have a hard time choose my all-time favorite color, but it would probably be either White or Green. My favorite 2-color combo is GW with second place going to UG, and my favorite three color combo is Bant, though I don't really like playing more than 2 colors in a deck. Beyond that, though, I enjoy making my own decks from scratch or near-scratch and fine-tuning them until they become worthwhile. My dream is to pilot my own rogue build into a finalist position at a large tournament one day. I guess you could say I'm a good definition of a "Johnny/Spike".
Some of my favorite cards include Archangel of Thune , Cyclonic Rift , Sigarda, Host of Herons , and Armada Wurm . I really like the art style of the Selesnya and Simic guilds, as well as the art style of the plane of Zendikar and Phyrexian creatures.

My Content
As mentioned, I do my best to create interesting, informative, and innovative content for the site. I create article series as well as run a MTG-focused podcast. Check them out!

I co-host The Top Deck alongside my good friend EAK1791. We discuss a wide variety of topics, including deck designs, opinions, current events in the community, and more. We also touch upon other cards games when necessary, such as Hearthstone and potentially the upcoming game Eternal. These podcasts will be located below, so please give them a shot!
My longest-running series right now is my "Showdown" series, where I pilot my own rogue standard builds against user-submitted decks of my choosing. This is currently on hiatus as I found myself getting burnt out on them and felt they were too much work for getting no compensation. It's possible they could return in the future, but you might still enjoy them! Showdown articles
You can find my other, older stuff by going through the browse function of the articles, but it's a bit cumbersome. In the future, I will probably be making a folder to hold all of them which I will post here.

How to Contact Me
I can be reached via my wall here, email, or Twitter. Feel free to choose whichever way you like, but know that I'm more likely to see/respond through email or Twitter. If you want to follow my content, be it articles or podcasts, I highly encourage following me on Twitter, as we always post when we will be going live, as well as when new episodes are up.
Do YOU want to make content for Tappedout? Fantastic! We're always looking for new talent and the site caters to those who strive to make engaging and informative content for it. If you have an idea for content, please feel free to contact me here, through email, or via Twitter. I am MORE than happy to help you edit, format or even just brainstorm some ideas you may not have fleshed out quite yet. My door is always open!

IAmTheWraith: Thank you! I'm surprised how many messages I get like that. I am certainly a very lucky man :)

From my experience, thundering spineback looked better than it played. The honest truth is that most things don't survive for a turn like it needs. There is a lot of premium removal in Peasant, and when you're up against a ramp deck, you know to save that removal for what they play. I like spineback in the same way you do, but it just didn't perform (even WITH dino synergies).

channelfireball12345: Tajuru pathwarden is certainly a hell of a common. I think it ultimately depends on what I want that card in that slot to achieve. Given I am running both Sentinel Spider as well as Nessian Asp now, it might be a little overkill to have two creatures filling that "slot", and Tajuru Pathwarden may actually be a good card for that second slot. I'm going to give your suggestion some more thought, and we will both see how I feel in the future.

Thanks for the comments, everyone!

Flooremoji: Wow, you're right. Totally missed on that one. Eh...I might add in spider anyway. I still like the card more!
