Competition is key to having fun for Eric. The ability to progress is very appealing.
Sideboarding was tough at the beginning. By finding a deck, he would master helped him focus on improving his sideboarding skills.
Playing the same deck and going to competitive events regularly really added to Eric's skill.
Pro Tour Battle for Zendikar (3rd Pro Tour), after a great day one and having a 10-1 record, Eric loses 4 games in a row and then draws and misses top 8 and a Pro Tour invite.
Top 8'ing a Grand Prix to make silver and get the Pro Tour invite after losing it 6 times. Top 4 of a team Grand Prix was also a highlight. Eric made a sweet reanimator play on camera.
Players drop from tournaments. WHY? If you paid and traveled, then play all the rounds. Thinking through this turn and the next yields big advantages.
Grind booster drafts and sealed events on MTGO. Play pre-release. Have a draft camp weekend.
Have fun playing the games.
