I've been playing magic since the end of Rath Block, and I've been a tournament regular since Invasion Block. I started studying for a PhD in Sociology at University of Leicester in 2017. I was born In Scotland, but moved to Nottingham three years ago, seeking new oppertunities both academic and magical. I play regularly with David Inglis, Alastair Rees and Neil Rigby. I've been on 5 Pro Tours the 2016 English World Cup Team, and Scottish 2003 European Championship Team, but what I really bring to the table is experience. I've played 136 Pro Tour Qualifiers, 18 Grand Prixs, 11 National Championships, 13 World Magic Cup Qualifers, 51 Preliminary Pro Tour Qualifiers and more little tournaments than I can remember. More than anything else, my articles are intended to convey the lessons of this lived experience. Likes - robust decks, be they control, midrange, beatdown or combo. Cryptic Commands, Kird Apes and Abzan Charms. Dislikes - decks that draw hot and cold. Urza's Tower, Life From the Loam and Taigam's Scheming.

Ordered 1x duel deck, Elspeth vs Kiora, and it arrived in less than a week. Counting on the fact that I don't live in the UK, they are pretty quick and their costumer service didn't take too long (less than 24h) to assist me with a minor issue. Much cheaper price in contrast to other websites regarding duel decks and they give freebies such as 1x rare card. Thank you manaleak!
Items were in fine condition, the goodies were fun and the shipping was fast and the secure package safely arrived!
Highly recommended. The cards are all good quality, arrived rapidly and for a good price.
