Robert Lombardi has a Degree in Mechatronics Engineering, he's married and has a 6 month old son. He has been playing Magic since Visions, took a break in Odyssey and got back in during Zendikar. He's the Champion of Grand Prix Toronto and made Top 8 of Grand Prix Montreal. He's much better at Limited than Constructed and is actively trying to be less hyperbolic.

Losing to an "unplayable" card. Sub per cards when used correctly have a place. Expand your range.
Winning GP Toronto.
Don't get out of the game. Go straight to university.
