    Just thought it would be nice if we had a topic that allowed you to introduce yourself to the other community members.

    I'm Michael Glow, from Syracuse transplanted in Oswego for college. I'm one of the founders of Team Evolution that team you love to hate. I've been playing tournaments since Chaos Orb was legal. I had a 1844 Vintage rating, but I tanked 30 points of that last tournament and haven't played since :). I mostly play T1 and T1.5. I'm also your admin so ph34r :D

    Frogboy eh...

    Ok, I'm Jordan from Portland, OR and uh... play T2 generally... Although I do play any format but mainly focus on what the big tournaments are playing.

    When I play Magic, I play for the intellectual competition and have the famous saying of; "For the thrill of victory, and the agony of defeat." in the back of my mind. I generally favor playing blue, but I don't let that blind me if something else is better. Favorite card is Tinker, and my favorite deck is 1.X Tinker as well.

    So anyways, hi.

I play down at Attactix fairly frequently and heard about this board from someone there, though I don't know his SN on here. Hmm...lesse, started playing magic during dark/revised. I played competative T1 for quite sometime in KC up until I quit playing in 98. Started up again a few months ago and am just now getting back into the tournament scene. Other than that not much to say.

    Anyway, cya around.

    hi people. name's tim, a kiwi born in asia studying in his third year of an arts degree in australia. i'm also new at themanadrain, and was surprised when i was invited because no one knows me there. ;P thanks for the invitation.

    i started playing during iceage, then quit around mirage because everyone else at the school did. picked it up again with odyssey, and here i am now. i'm slowly getting p9 cards to play t1, so help me out if you have any ;P (just not now. i'm quite broke after buying an alpha lotus recently)

    well... i think that's more than what people want to hear about me, so yeah.




    p.s. i stole your quote drg', i hope you don't mind ;P
    p.p.s. diablos, i have an asian girlfriend, does that make me > you? although my girlfriend gets all sorts of looks when i take her to the local gameshop... ;/

    Uhh... duno why I put that there but oh well. So, I've been playing since Ice Age, the influence of my big brother. I prefer 1.5 over T1 because I don't own all the power.

    I'm Andrew. I'm from Englewood, CO and I'm 15. I've been playing since Nemesis came out. I play mostly type 2, but my favorite format is T1 (if only there were more T1 tournaments around here, grrrr!).

    I also play at Attactix, almost every week, but I don't think I know you, Jason.

    I also have the misfortune of knowing Jeff (aka. GreenMycon).
    wtfuck?!?

    /me is Jeff, I own this site, litterally. I've been playing for 8 years on and off (4th edition rotation?) I hail from Englewood of the Colorado like Sir natals. I'm the only person in a good 5 mile radius with any power, and one of maybe 2 at my local card shop with any. Type 1 tournaments are more rare than Mew, the 150th Pokemon from the Original Gameboy game.

    I undoutedly piss everyone off and if I haven't pissed you off yet, you just haven't known me long enough. Ummmmm I said some more stuff in the Moderator forum I believe... I guess I'll list some favourite or something.

    Favourite Movie: Pulp Fiction
    Favourite Movie Dialogue: A Clockwork Orange
    Favourite Song: Faster than the Speed of Life
    Favourite Color: Black
    Favourite Deck of Current: Stax
    Favourite Format: T1
    Favourite smiley: ;)
    Least Favourite Smiley: ~_~
    Most Offensive Phrase: Fuckpuppet
    Most Offensive Movie: A Clockwork Orange
    Favourite multiplayer format: Emperors with Stax
    Favoruite Scrub to beat at local cardship: Alex H? (russian fuck)
    Favourite Pro to Barn: Matthew Motchkavitz III
    Favourite IRC Room to Idle in: #mtgwacky
    Favourite IRC Room to spam: #apprentice
    Best Trade Ever: No idea, I've done quite a few good ones. Maybe when I traded Phage and Visara for 2 Mintalicious Exalted Angels. Think that was a trade where I had the greatest percent profit, not the greatest increase in cash.
    Favourite Deck to spam: ICZ
    Blah!!

    I'd have to agree, that movie is hilariously offensive. That one part, where the lady was being attacked by a guy with a giant dildo chair sculpture... anyways...

    I'm August. I'm 19. I'm in Oregon. I'm male. I dunno how tall I am or anything but I'm probably like 6'. I have long hair.

    I play guitar and do vocals but mostly play bass. I've been working pretty hard on getting better bass technique; right now I can pick 32nd notes at 240, slap 16ths at about 260, and I'm working on getting a few more techniques functional. I'm in a death metal band. We're getting ready to record something releasable and start doing shows.

    I started playing about when Alliances was released. I've played off and on but lately I've been trying within reason to get competitive. My favorite deck to play used to be Erhnamgeddon, because it's badass, and Ernie and Juzam are still fucking cool. (Juzam is the coolest card ever.) But my pet deck for the longest time has been the Necro archetype. I generally play whatever is most comparable to the power of Necro, but basically just pick whatever's most tournament viable (in addition to whatever random casual stuff I like).

    I'm going to college.

    Hannibal Lecter is awesome.

    I've been listening to Carl Orff, Dissection, Sepultura, Skinless, The Berzerker and for some reason I've been listening to Mortician more than usual. My favorites still include Pink Floyd and 20th century classical composers like Stockhausen in addition to Gorguts, Decapitated and Blind Guardian.

    Setnakt is a name originating (apparently) from an ancient Egyptian Pharaoh's, meaning "Set is Mighty" (Set being the deity). "Khenemetapophis" is a compound word (yeah, ancient Egyptian compound words are odd sometimes), being made of "Khenemet-", a prefix for "He Who Is At One With," and "Apophis," another Egyptian deity. It has religious significance for me in that it represents a concept of being comfortable with artistic expression and discipline through introspection. I consider myself an atheistic/agnostic Setian (some people have debated with me about the meaning of being an atheist, but I think by mentioning them both I get my point across clearly enough for all practical purposes), and my philosophical perspective is more or less rooted in nihilism but from what I've seen it would not suit the purposes of definition to compare myself to a nihilist. All of this is up for debate however but people tell me that this sort of discussion confuses the fuck out of everyone so I think I may have explained enough for now.

    HI,

    I'm Michael Teachout, I'm 18, most know me as Mr.T, and a few as Roundeye (Thanks Nick). I live in a little town of Bridgeport, NY, and play in Syracuse. Currently go to SUNY Morrisville, where I'm studying Design & Drafting. I'm a race car driver, I race Sportsman Dirt Modifieds, and will be racing at Fulton this summer.

    I've been playing since 1996, started playing in tournaments in 1999. I'm part of Team Evolution. Favorite decks are Sligh/Burn and Oath. Although I now decided to play control. I'm known at Syracuse for taking multiple decks, and cramming them into one. Deck I'm most known for is Opium, a mix between Oath, Trix, and Deed.Deq. Deck I have been asked to cram together, TurboRecSurOath-a-trix-atogbattleofwits, or something like that, more or less a joke. Don't have much more to say.
