Theros (for the draft environment)
Being stubborn. Jack would draft a good card and then get fixated on it. He would force an archetype and learned not to.
When Wizards switched off of the ELO system, Jack's qualification chances plummeted because he doesn't play that often. He learned to enjoy Magic at its roots.
Qualifying for the Pro Tour and calling his wife to say they are taking a trip.
Making decisions with incomplete information.
Don't play cards that lead you to being 2 for 1'd. Draft two colors.
Keep at it. Do what you're doing and take advantage of when variance breaks your way. Keep your emotions in check. Don't tilt.
You can have a good time while losing.
Giving away information and playing slow. Play faster!
Remember to have fun.
Jack can be found in the MTG Pro Tutor Facebook group.
