I have been playing since Nemesis, and have never taken a break since then. If you show me any random Magic card from history, chances are I know it and chances are I've played it.

Have you ever met one of those people who see the bigger picture behind the smaller details? That is me with cards. I look at a card and immediately see its hidden potential. I am also the best with words. I have the best words.

I have played a lot of Magic and I hope to pass that experience on to my readers. My aim is to help readers with Magic strategy, finance, and most of all, finding the fun in Magic, whether you're a Spike, Johnny, Timmy, or any other kind of player. Fun is the sole reason why we play Magic. Oh, and money. Sometimes, mostly for the money.

So, let's figure out what the best card in a Standard deck is, what will break your favorite Commander deck, and which cards look so stunningly beautiful, you just have to have them in foil.
