What makes Magic: The Gathering fun for you?
Jonas is very creative with his hands and mind. MTG creative in another way. He gets to think and make plays 2 turns ahead
Worst Magic Moment
GP Krakow 2005 – Jonas traveled out of country and it was very expensive.
He went 0-3 drop. Outside of comfort zone.
He learned to practice more and learned to balance playing the best deck vs. one you know better.
Proudest Magic Moment
Won first Game Day. Born of the Gods. Hadn’t been playing long.
Standard – Look at the best deck and play a deck that beats them.
GW Tokens – Bad removal, can’t handle PW
Deepest Thing You’ve Learned About Yourself
Full of myself. Think I’m better than I am. Over confidence is your worst enemy. Respect your opponent. Beware always. Think about his outs, what you can do to stop it.
Biggest Mistake Players Make
Play cards, not opponent. You should play your opponent. Don’t over extend into effects that wreck you.
How to Effectively Prepare for a Big Event
Theorize about decks and match ups.
What’s in Your Tournament Bag
Deck, Playmat, Dice, Pen, Life Pod, Clothes, Water bottle
New to Magic?
Look for Tier I budget decks. Play on Cockatrice, use proxies, and borrow the cards you need.
