Caster Introduction: Poke'Pope
Updated: Sep 1, 2020
Good afternoon everyone! This has been a bit of a long delayed post, something I wanted to do on my first week as a member of TSJ but never got around to doing. Mainly because I wanted to really think about the questions I had for myself as a player, and a member of the community. So this week, I wanted to write about myself, and give you all some insight to who I am not only as a player but as an individual. I had four questions written out to myself that I took time to reflect on, so I hope you enjoy and connect with something in my self-interview!

Question 1: When did you start learning to play Magic?
I started to play magic back in 2012. I went to a small shop near Nashville, Tennessee and participated in a draft comprised of the new set Return to Ravnica. I had zero clue what I was doing, and for the most part just took the green cards and a few artifacts. I had a handle on the mana system, and how the game generally worked, but for the most part I had zero clue what was going on. From that point on I continued my interest in the game, moved to Florida, and found my home at a small shop called Breakpoint Books in Mount Dora. There I met players and friends that taught me the ways of spell slinging, helped me navigate the economy so I wouldn't waste a bunch of money right off the bat, and worked me up from standard into formats like modern, legacy, EDH, pauper, and so forth.
