About:

"Hello, readers! My name's Ryan, and I was a casual player for a long time before becoming more competitive in 2016. I've taken several regional tops and my most iconic achievement is becoming the LLDS Champion in 2018. I'm a big fan of the game's history and past formats, which are often a lot of fun to play!"
