  1. I’d like to change my answer about the best deck in Standard to “Whatever Gerry T says is the best deck”.

  2. Awesome job, Doug.

    The original intro actually cost me quite a bit of money to get done, so I am in no hurry to get a new one made for us.

  3. Franstar had the best and most elegant answer to “What do new players need to know as they become competitive”…

    Humility will go a long way. Even when you think you’re at the top of whatever game you’re on, there’s someone else who’s miles ahead of you… so by recognizing that and continuing to always approach Magic as a learning experience is the only way to keep improving.

  4. I said Nassif but I guess my voice registered a little low. I’ll wear tighter pants next time. Sweet video!

  5. The only answer I liked in regards to the “how to get better at competitive Magic” was Franstars. Playing a lot will get you nowheres if you can’t accept that you are making misplays and only chalking up your losses to bad luck. All the other things will help you out, absolutely. And you will need them at some point. But being able to accept that you are not just an absolute master is the first step, and the hardest one.

  6. I would’ve said Nassif but thought that the KYT joke answer would be more appreciated – you hear that KYT? I SAID JOKE ANSWER!

  7. Yeah Francis had the best answer to that question for sure, I like Ian’s answer for best player because he gave some reasons, and it is best current very clearly by his answer, but it is cool to see how he interpreted the question and gave legit answers.

  8. Great video. My big gripe with all the Mana D videos is the poor audio balance… the voices are too quiet and drowned out by background noise, and when i turn up the speakers to compensate, the fade-in songs are really loud…

    Thanks for the feedback. We hope to improve as we start making a lot more of these.

    This is a huge gripe of mine also. All I have right now is my iPhone 4 to record on, and that is not perfect. I purchased a mic to try and fix this but it only plugs in to old iPod touches and such (since it is Analog and we are now on Digital) so I had to return it. I am looking in investing in some kind of mic to work with my iPhone 4, since the camera is good quality. I bought a Yeti (sick sick sick condenser mic, going to be used for stereo band recordings) but that will be good for home use for my audio I do here, but outside of dubbing that won’t help much for this kind of video. Should be some nice crisp sound for my screen capturing though!

    Thank you so much for the feedback guys! I am looking to do more stuff like this.
