Making day 2 for the first time was a challenge.
Worst Magic Moment
Louis was disqualified from a Grand Prix because he had an illegal deck.
Proudest Magic Moment
GP Lille 2015. Louis missed the win-and-in for top 8 but was very proud of his performance. He felt in the Zone all event.
What Have You Learned From Magic
Louis has developed a very rational mindest from playing Magic. He’s also embraced a stoic philosophy for life. Don’t stress about the things you have no control over.
Advice for New Players
Build your own decks but still play the best decks to give you a leg up.
Biggest Mistake Players Make
Sequencing and mechanical actions. Always do the thing that gives you more information first. (Draw a card first then make decisions.) Notice what information your opponent gives you.
Louis was obsessed with being good at Magic and pressure made him unhappy. Don’t be results oriented. Be process oriented.
