When did you start playing Magic, and why? I started playing magic on November 10, 2015, the day Connor Opened Murphy's Vault. One of the staff at the time gave me an intro game where I was playing the Origins Pia and Kiran Nalaar intro deck and I've been hooked since then
Favourite card? Thunderbreak Regent, this is the first card I bought for a deck
Favourite format? Commander
Favourite deck? I can't decide on 1 but I can cut it down to 2. Both my Surrak Dragonclaw Dragon tribal and Gitrog Monster commander decks are my favourites
Favourite set? Unhinged/Unglued and Return to Ravnica, I can't pick just 1
Favorites food? Lasagne
Other interests/hobbies? I've been producing various styles of electronic music for around 13 years, it's one of my favourite ways to relax. 
I'm also a pretty big video game collector, my current mission is to finish a complete UK PS2 collection...it's taking a while
