and/or if you enjoyed Michael J. Flores Deckade: 10 Years of Magic: The Gathering Strategy and Commentary you will probably enjoy this as much as have. Dojo-esque tournament reports with plenty of old school magic flavor.
Jamie Wakefield is a gift to Magic: The Gathering. He is easily one of the best, and most respected, writers about the game.This book takes a nostalgic look at a competing tournament player during the early days of the Pro Tour. The decklists are from a bygone era, but the stories of sportsmanship, competition, and meeting new friends are timeless.
Jamie Wakefield is one of the original storytellers of Magic: the Gathering. Back in the days of the first ever Pro Tour, Jamie Wakefield was out there with his buddies, slinging spells and battling for Magic fame and glory. This book contains tournament reports, deck analyses, and personal stories of victory and defeat that weave together to form a truly compelling tale of the early days of competitive Magic. If you want to read an inspiring and funny chronicle of what Magic was like "back in the day" then this is the book for you. I still reread this one from time to time, and it never seems to get old.The only additional thing I would note is that if you're a newer player, this book will probably deal with a bunch of specific cards and decks that you're not familiar with. Expect to spend some time looking up older cards in order to truly follow along. This isn't really a serious negative, but I thought it was worth noting.
I read this years ago and recently rediscovered it. As much fun as ever, highly recommend for anyone sick of the stuff that passes for Magic articles nowadays.
This book is a great read for anyone who has ever been interested in the game. Ageless, timeless, Jamie takes us through a wild ride of his experiences in the early days of the Pro Tour. An amazing and gifted storyteller, he brings to life for the reader the trials and travails of his firsthand experiences. Buy this book - you will not be disappointed!
