I have a pal who is a well-spoken player who’s got the skill to connect an audience to a story with a clear purpose, while still providing educational value.
He quickly advanced from casual to competitive after Q1 and has Day 2’d 3 out of 4 regionals in less than 10 months. This is his first year pushing for Worlds.
The skill he exemplified last weekend is that he closely observed and analyzed a competitive deck from Oceania, and with only a few days’ preparation, determined what changes would make the deck successful the following weekend, and got 13th/1056.
I spoke with him extensively during the event, and he could expound on his story quite a bit. (short version here)
Could a story about the creation and implementation of a 13th place PikaZek deck potentially be published on your site? Is there a section on this forum to post an article as a thread, in hopes of getting it published to the website?
