  • Preferred Format: Modern, Commander, Legacy Tribal Wars, Limited

About:

I hail from Genoa, Italy.

When I don't write about Magic, I write about film and television. In general, I write a lot.

When I play Magic, I usually play something with green in it. I don't know why I like green so much, I'm not even so concerned about the environment (but I'm concerned enough).

When I don't play Magic, I play things like X-Wing or Zombicide. But mostly I watch films and TV shows.

When I do things I don't like to do as much as playing games and watching films, I'm a freelance translator, editor, and proofreader. I also worked as head of programming for a couple film festivals.

I might have some mild OCD.

Tribal Attractions: Standard Giants

By Kumagoro (2019-12-05)

Our long, collective Oko nightmare is over, and with the Food tyrant out of the picture, now Standard opens up to experimentation once again. No better time than the present to try something big, something new, something Naya, something brewed.

Survival Guide for an Enchanted Meta

By Kumagoro (2019-11-27)

Following the November 18 bans, the Year of the Food has officially come to an end—and it was actually just six very intense weeks. In its wake, several top decks are now vying for Standard supremacy, and one thing most of them have in common is their focus on one key artifact or enchantment.

Mythic Championship V: Twilight of the Dead

By Kumagoro (2019-10-23)

The penultimate Arena Mythic Championship was foremost a Golos affair, yet the wandering robot and its favorite Zombieland destination failed to reach the topmost place in their final Standard showcase. This ended up the privilege of the reigning, and fervent, world champion.
