I played a little around the 1999' (I remember sketching Bear Cub for a grade 7 art project) and then came back to the wonderful world of MTG January, 2018.

A local playgroup soon developed and we naturally moved into EDH, with appreciation for the ease of entry for singleton, and the depth of engagement plus the creative aspects of the format.

I'm a systems thinker and learning to apply that framework to this world is tons of fun! I currently find myself attracted to exploring the combination of flavour and function. Just going "function" seems to lead to the same cards, but flavour gives a nice creative challenge and character to the decks.

I love the experience of getting the ideas, making the assumptions on synergies and sequencing and then playing it out with the cards interacting with each other; seeing the deck come to life after it all just existing in my head is one of my favourite parts!

Said on Monk Tribal...


I'd love to see a little primer talking about how this plays, reasons for choices, etc. I'm working on a monk tribal and am really curious!
