2016 World Champion Recap
Brian shifted to playing the best deck for an event instead of a pet deck.
How to Determine the Best Deck
Look at results from tournaments and Magic online events as a starter.
Treat your opponent with respect and handle yourself with class.
Relationships and people are more important than Magic. Take time to think about what others might think about you and the situation.
Lose With Class
Look at the big picture. If you consider the one game of Magic to be the end-all be-all then it will be hard to swallow. By having a big picture perspective, you’ll realize it’s not the only match that matters.
Feel free to celebrate but be mindful you don’t “rub it in”.
Biggest Mistake Players Make
Tunnel Vision. Some players have a plan and execute that plan no matter what often to their detriment.
