Sancho Napora

  • Name: Sancho Napora
  • Preferred Format: Commander, Cube, Battle Box

About:

When I first started playing Magic, I hated blue. A friend and I picked up Magic: The Gathering in the summer of '94, and my first deck was a Revised 60-card starter deck with only two Islands. This made it almost impossible to cast Phantasmal Terrain, and turn one of my friend's lands into an Island and attack with my biggest creature, a 5/5 Sea Serpent with Islandhome.

A few additional starter decks and a several Islands later, it all changed when I discovered my one true love in the world of Magic. It was a blue card with an odd illustration of a clown and a jackal-headed person on a seesaw with a text box beginning with seven words that would drive my friends crazy for years to come: "Players do not get an untap phase."

At that moment, when I first laid eyes on the beautiful blue enchantment, Stasis, a Johnny was born. Since then, Magic for me was not just about winning, but about winning in silly, annoying, and janky ways — preferably using blue spells.

Newly returned after nearly 20 years away from the wonderful world of Magic: The Gathering, I am thrilled to explore the new formats and the thousands of cards I have missed out on, and I look forward to sharing my journey of rediscovery with the readers of Cardmarket Insight.

Forgotten Heroes: Hypnotic Specter

von SanchoN (2019-09-17)

Frequently cast on turn one to create early disruption or bait a Lightning Bolt, Hypnotic Specter was often a playset in mono-black decks in the early days of Magic. Today, though legal in most formats, the card never sees any play. This week, Sancho looks at what happened to another of Magic's forgotten heroes.

Art Appreciation: Scott Kirschner

von SanchoN (2019-09-02)

Featured on 43 cards from '94 to '98, Scott Kirschner may not be among Magic's most prolific artists and most of his illustrations wouldn't even be considered as memorable as some. But, as Sancho argues this week, several of Kirschner's works have stood the test of time and have managed to make even forgettable cards live on for decades after they last saw play.
