About:

Hi all! My name is Rodrigo Martin, although most of my MTG friends call me Rone. I have been playing this amazing card game since I was a child in school. Right after Urza's Saga was released, I started collecting cards, but by that time I didn’t even know the rules, so my friends made them up for a while!

After that, my parents moved to a new house in the same city and I had to make new friends. But lucky me, I found a nice group of young people playing Magic in my new neighbourhood. So, I kept learning and improving my skills with them as a team.

About my experience with the different formats, I started playing Extended until Legacy became successful during the 2012 Legacy GP in Madrid. I really loved the format during the next 3 years, but due to my career studies, I had to quit and sell all my Legacy cards. Nevertheless, it didn't take too long for me to come back and start playing again, but this time I chose Modern, since the format was more affordable and popular by then.

One of the best things about MTG is that I have made a lot of friends over the years. Some of them have stopped playing (I even sold my cards and came back at least three times), but we have kept our friendship until the present day. That's why I am always glad to play Magic.

Recently, I spent a year living in Australia and it was amazing how easily I met Magic players there. They helped me get the cards I needed to play Standard, and introduced me to their community. That's another reason why I love this game: the MTG communities all over the world.

Finally, in 2016, I started creating content about MTG. I wanted to share my knowledge with others to enhance my experience as a writer and an MTG player.
