Introduction

What is this?

End of turn, draw a card is a blog about Magic: the Gathering. Currently mostly about Old School, specifically the Swedish rules of 93/94, as that’s what I’m mostly interesting in these days, but also likely some Vintage, probably some Legacy and newer formats and current issues and things like that. I also have plans for a larger project, but that will have to wait a couple of weeks. Mostly it’s an outlet for me to rave and ramble about magic and assorted subjects. Don’t trust me all too much. I’m heavily into fiction, after all.

Why the title?

Because there are few things in life better than drawing cards. Especially at the end of the opponent’s turn. (Drawing all the cards on turn 1 is preferable, but less of a productive strategy in 93/94. And since that is the main focus of this blag for the time being, end of turn it is.)

Who are you?

I’m Svante Landgraf, Magic player since 1994, boasting a moderately successful career including a GP top 8 back in the ancient days of 2001, some Nationals top 8 in assorted formats (of which my win playing Doomsday in the unofficial 2015 Swedish Vintage Nationals is a favorite), a N00bcon top 8 and a number of GPs played somewhere in the 40s (which is probably a bad thing, considering a very low cashing or day 2-ing conversion rate), having a Ph.D. in literature as well as a background in maths, generally huge nerd when it comes to games and science fiction and assorted topics, enjoying good beers and vintage cards and reading and writing. Living in Link√∂ping, Sweden. I’ll probably grab the opportunity to write more about myself in the future. It’s a topic which I’m somewhat fond of, I must say.
