craft draft

A few years ago, those Magic: the Gathering starter decks that Wizards of the Coast puts in PAX Prime swag bags got my friends and me playing Magic. Ultimately we all went different places with it. Some of them are really keen on pre-releases and sometimes go to FNM, a couple of them have gotten […]
