(Hopefully these forums are not so busy that the moderators will feel obliged to move this post to the introduction forum, as I'm only intending to frequent the M:TG section.)
Hi Everyone! My name is Russell, and I'm a magic fan from the northern suburbs. You might have met or played against me at one of Scott Paisley's events, or very occasionally at Tactics' FNM. I'm more a constructed player than a drafter, and I love playing both competitively and casually. I've been playing since 10th Edition and I usually lean towards control decks, though lately I've been playing hyper-aggressive decks - first Boros, then Barely Boros, and now mono-Red. With all the good defenders out now, though, I'm going to be looking for a new deck.
I write a blog about magic at: http://gwafahazid.wordpress.com
that was featured on the mothership's community spotlight a couple of weeks ago, and I also write articles for ManaNation and MTGOAcademy. I play MTGO as 'plarp' and you can find me on twitter as @rtassicker.
I love chatting about magic and it would be good to get to know the people I see and play against at events, so, here I am! Is everyone getting ready for Nationals Qualifiers?
