Top Deck Legends is a blog and (eventually) a podcast about Magic: the Gathering and related topics. Our goal is to share our enthusiasm for the game with others, and through doing so get better ourselves.

I started playing Magic near the end of summer 2015, just a few weeks before Magic Origins was released. Since then, I’ve delved deep into the game. Having a tendency to obsess over a few hobbies, Magic fulfills my cravings through it’s complexity. I often shy away from Tier 1 decks in favor of brewing my own. I enjoy the surprise associated with it, as well as making opponents read cards. Get ready for some jank.
Favorite Cards: Rancor, Restoration Angel, Frostburn Weird, Gideon Jura, Breakthrough, too many to name.
Modern – GW Hatebears
Legacy – Fish
Pauper – Check them out (all paper)
Current Cubes: Core Set
My first MtG experience was a pack of Masques at the end of 1999, because I liked the art. I played kitchen table until Fifth Dawn, then picked up the game again in college and played more seriously starting with Scars block. I prefer Legacy, EDH, cube, and paper pauper, and I’ve been creating custom cards for years. I like brewing, drafting, and speculating over actually playing. I always draft aggro and tempo because slow, grindy matches feel like a waste of my time. I’m also a Level 1 Judge and really enjoy a good FNM – Magic’s greatest strength is its community!
