Guild: Golgari

Shard: Bant

Plane: Kamigawa

Current deck cycle: Scion of the Ur-Dragon Tribal Roon of the Hidden Realm Stax/Combo Toshiro Umezawa Zombie/RPG Zedruu the Greathearted Chaos Kess, Dissident Mage Wheels Jodah, the Unifier Superfriends Haldan, Avid Arcanist/Pako, Arcane Retriever Theft Kynaios and Tiro of Meletis Hug

Been playing since '96: Took an 8-year hiatus after the Urza's Block Banned List saw many in my area leave the game. Got back into it during Zendikar/Scars and haven't stopped!

Helped a local pizza shop get the WPN license we needed to host games. Meta Voted on: "Which Set does everyone want to Draft?" (back when snagging old boxes was easier) Every other week was different: Ice Age, Kamigawa, Alara, Future Sight, Eventide, etc... even a 12-man Unhinged with EPIC laughs! xD

I cherish the game in many ways... but the amount of insane profit milking going on & the direction Hasbro is pulling them, might dip again. ¯_(ツ)_/¯ (i.e. crazy R&D decisions leading to largest # of bans in decades, Casual environment exploited by product emphasizing Competitive push/Power creep, "Return to" planes nostalgia as the only real story drive, Fortnite/Warhammer & other IP screwing the identity/uniqueness, & alternate alternate prints giving off Pokemon vibes -eyes roll).

Thanks Grind - that was the idea with Alchemist's Refuge in fact. And for the Hug theme, I might do Tidal Barracuda =D
