The strategy and brain exercise.
Deck building. Mono curves weren't at the top of Erik's mind.
SCG Open in 2012. Erik made Top 8. Lost in quarter finals. Erik made a huge mistake in game 2. He misconducted the game state and lost. Slow down and think through your plays.
Top 8 at GP Los Angeles, hearing his name over the speakers felt amazing. It was very validating.
Play a deck with Force of Will. Ask to read you opponents card. If you don't understand it, counter it.
Erik chose his deck early, a few months in advance.
Clothes, Deck Box + Deck, Extra Cards, Toothbrush, Trail Mix Legion
Never be afraid to make mistakes and look foolish. Don't let your dreams be dreams.
