Early Challenge Not being able to beat the best guy at his local store. This constant, ever-present challenge pushed Zach to improve.
Worst Magic Moment Getting 9th at PPTQ's 6 times in a row. Zach learned that the results of tournaments are not indicative of your actual skill.
Proudest Magic Moment Making top 16 of Pro Tour Guilds of Ravnica.
What Have You Learned From Magic Making the play that sets you up for a win later. Make the best decision at the time with the information you have, but make a decision.
Biggest Mistake Players Make Getting out of the moment. Players need to focus on just the game in front of them.
Parting Guidance The people in Magic are what's most important. Relationships and friends are priceless.
