CardShark Content - Michael Potter (6/30/2003)

A quick note on who I selected for match coverage. In general, I tried to pick players who I didn’t recognize from the A list that Sideboard usually picks for features. Round 1 I cheated a little because Seth Burns has been writing articles for a long time and Adam Horvath’s name has shown up in a few tournament reports, but I knew Seth and felt more comfortable starting with a player I already knew.

I’ve also written up a few rounds of the coverage from today. I have a greater respect for the Sideboard staff. My typing skills are not great and I rely on handwriting and then typing later. The Sideboard reporters type on the fly and get the coverage posted very, very quickly.

Round 1

Seth Burn from NYC - playing GR
Adam Horvath from Hillsboro, NJ and a member of Team Togit - playing Wake

I’ve been exchanging emails with Seth Burns for a while (we both work as accountants for a living). I was able to confirm that my boring, accountant personality was in full force when we had lunch together a few months ago because he recognized me but couldn’t find my name after searching in his memory for a while.

Seth and Adam chatted a little before the match. They don’t live too far from each other and knew each other before playing at Nationals. Seth said he was going to play MBC until he saw how many Zombie decks there were out there and switched decks without play testing his new deck much.

Seth accidentally reveled a basking Rootwalla

while pile shuffling. He complained that his sleeves were a little slick but admitted that it was his fault if they were. He also said he was planning on going back to grad school and was just waiting to hear back from them to see if he was accepted.

Adam was much quieter during the initial shuffling.

Seth won the die roll and chose to play after joking he was going to draw.

Both players kept their opening hands.

Both players sideboarded and joked a little about what cards they could bring in. Both swapped in about 6 cards.
