What makes Magic: The Gathering fun for you?
Trying to find interactions between cards.
Winning is also very fun and keeps Julien going.
How to have Fun and be Competitive
Focusing on improving keeps Magic fun.
Won a RPTQ for Pro Tour Atlanta. Julien played a lot with the same deck in preparation for the event and it paid off.
Worst Magic Moment
Modern Grand Prix in Madrid. Julien played a TON and fine-tuned his deck. He even gave his list to friends who also tweaked it slightly and took it to the GP. His friends did really well but he didn’t make day 2. To practice so hard and then fall short is very frustrating.
You have to practice so when luck hits you can grab it.
Proudest Magic Moment
Grand Prix Manchester 2016. Julien had a huge win streak and made Silver pro when he made Top 8.
