-Why you play competitive Magic
I play competitively because I enjoy the thrill of the game. Magic is a game which brings out the competitive nature between two competitors. Because of this, emotion, albeit, a byproduct of playing, is such a key part of the game for many people, and it is important to not to get too high or to sink too low. Whether it be snatching victory from the jaws of defeat, or snatching defeat from the jaws of victory, competitive Magic provides an outlet from the stresses of life. In addition, Magic provides players with a unique ability to innovate unlike any other game, where success with a rogue deck can change the outlook of an entire format.

-What your main reasons are for wanting to join the team
Although I'm not a constructed specialist, I think that one of the best parts of playing Magic is constructing a deck. Joining would allow me to expand on that interest. Also, I want to do well in future Pro Tours, Grand Prix's, and PTQ's. I feel like joining would allow me to be more prepared.

-What you think you would bring to the team that makes you stand out above other applicants
My dashing good looks and charming personality.

-What your strengths as a Magic player are
Topdecking like a master. I usually also have a very strong grasp on the formats I play, so I know what cards to potentially look out for within a given format. I also believe I'm a pretty decent bluffer. Drafting is probably a strength too. I also have a willingness to try out almost any card in limited at least once. Case and point - Shadowfeed from Shards of Alara limited.

-What your weakness as a Magic player are
Sloppy play caused by playing too fast. I'm pretty sure that if I took twice the time I usually took to make decisions, I could cut my losses in half just due to a lack of misplays. Also, I don't have a great deal of experience playing Magic competitively, like people who have been playing for a decade plus. I also seem to forget I have a sideboard a lot in limited.

-What the main formats that you play and focus on are
Whatever PTQ season it is. However, I play limited the most.

-Which format you think you're most proficient in
Probably any constructed format. For some reason, I feel like I misplay a lot less in constructed when compared to limited, despite playing limited much more.

-Please add anything more you think would be important to your application. The more we know, the better we can make an informed decision about your application.

I've only been playing competitively for a year now. I guess what really got me to play competitively was that I won the first PTQ I ever attended, so in a sense, I was "forced" into the competitive Magic scene, not that I regret it or anything.

I vote no, simply because he wouldn't scoop to me in a 3v3, causing me to Gimp.

To be fair, I was playing AWFUL on purpose. I seem to remember pinging you with my Vithian Stinger mutiple times times despite you have x/1's on the board.... and you still couldn't pull it off.
