1. The Kid
It’s no shame to lose to someone born in the 2000s, but it still stings. There is an equal chance that The Kid is an autodidact who plays Magic like a relentless threshing machine or that they simply have more time on their hands. Console yourself with the fact that you can drink away your woes. They cannot.
6. The Rules Lawyer
If a game has been invented, then a Rules Lawyer exists for it and Magic is no different. The Rules Lawyer is the Speed Demon’s mortal enemy in that they will dispute anything and everything that happens during the course of a game and slow proceedings to a crawl. Playing the Rules Lawyer is about as much fun as doing your taxes and without the possible reward.
7. The Saint
The greatest tournament player is The Saint, who helps out new players and is a joy for experienced player to encounter. The Saint is the person who keeps you coming back to tournaments after an experience with one of the players mentioned above because they always remember that Magic is a GAME and games are meant to be enjoyed. Surprisingly, Saints appear in large frequency at tournaments and should be treated with the utmost courtesy and respect.
