First introduced to magic by a friend of mine and was as most players hooked right away. Can’t really remember when exactly this was but I know there where for sure Revised available at the local toy store and I’m sure it was before the Necro summer cause I have some vague memories about us waiting for the release of Ice Age.

Grown up in a really small city/society called Färgeland, located in Dalsland direct translated to Colorland in Valleyland, with around 6.000-10.000 inhabitants.

For a long period of time we only played the cards we had and only acquired some additional boosters here and there. We mostly played casual kitchen table formats such as mutliplayer, highlander, ANTE and whatnot.

When I finalized college and started working I got more and more into new school magic and I actually remember us having loads of drafts with both Mirrodin and Kamigawa alongside all the standard FNM we played in Gothenburg.

Started collecting Legacy cards as I where really into playing with all my revised duals and the older cards.

The years passed and in 2017 i disovered Old School Magic and decided the entire collection into old cardboard. Thirteen months later and 27 individual Legacy decks I had acquired my first set of POWER-9 (of course black bordered) and a semi-large old school collection.

Ante has always spoken to me and I love the thrill it brings to the table!

When I heard about the Ante 40K @ n00bcon 11 I just needed to be a part of it!

Some words: I love the game since i was 14 years old and bought a Starter Pack of 4th Edition (i could buy 3rd Edition, but on the Pack was written „Unlimited Edition“ and on the 4th Edition Pack was written „Limited Edition“) haha. I can remember the first Rare – Mind Twist. Second Rare – Birds of Paradise. Third Rare – Bottle of Suleiman. I went through the Mini-Rulebook and was fascinated about the Girl Player with Mon‘s Raiding Goblins and the Boy Player with War Mammoth and (i think) Howling Mine. As a nerd from the first second, i was totally in it and tried to find more players. We ended up in a small Community of 4-5 players. No sleeves but Rubber-Bands 🙂

I wanted to keep the spirit of Magic of the Old days so i decided to go into Oldschool Only and sold all Modern, Legacy etc. Cards beginning of 2019. So far i never regretted this move 🙂 Also to play Magic and especially AnteAnte40K within this great community brings me joy and its a real honor to know everybody from you Ladies and Gents.

So not much more to say but

Truly a kitchen table player at heart. It’s all about the Gathering, it’s all about the Magic.

Played a crazy amount of magic during my teens. Lived and breathed the game up until end of Tempest block. During the following 15-20 years, I only played sporadically when visiting my old highschool friends, and we only cared about the cards that infused us with nostalgia, I guess one could say that we played what would today be called OS 95.

Like many others, stumbled upon this awesome 93/94 community that really spoke to me. It had all the ingredients of the game I loved and cared about. That coupled with all the sweet people with the right mindset made me stay.

Watching Markus and Magnus duel for keeps in the late night during the n00bcon X aftermath struck a nerve with me, and I knew I need to get in on this. Magic from Below
