  3. Commander Rules!
    1. Magic Hero origin stories
      1. Ryan - Bitten by a radioactive Magic Card, and gained the ability to sense what my opponents were thinking, as well as block creatures with Flying
        1. Tell the story of when I first started playing
        2. 1994, at the age of 15. Taught to play by Jonathan
        3. My dad learned how to play, to make sure that the game wasn’t “demonic” as there was a Dungeons and Dragons panic back then
        4. Played all the time at a local book store named Book Source
        5. Played all through high school and dipped off a bit during college
        1. My Dad would give me $10 and let me go into the mall to buy Revised Starters and Legends and The Dark boosters from Waldenbooks on the promise I wouldn’t tell my mom he let me get them.
        2. Taught myself to play and played alone for a long time until a card shop opened up.
        3. We played in a card shop housed in a small stucco building that was attached to the bus station.
        4. Eventually my mom found out as i started to get better and winning local events.
        5. I took a break after Urza’s Destiny as I moved to a new town and didn’t know anyone who played.
      2. Zack - I was recruited by the CIA at a young age and taught the skills to play cards as part of my cover to fit in at a high school in a rural East Texas Town.
      3. Trudy’s story
      4. DMF Houston
        1. Ryan - I played up until Time Spiral (around 2006). Then kept playing somewhat irregularly very casually Kitchen Table magic with friends a few times a year
          1. Made my first Commander deck in August of 2013
          2. Came back to collecting cards again during Khans of Tarkir (2014)
        2. Zack - Brandon and I played a bunch of card games trying to ignore the allure and obsession we knew playing magic could become. Finally broke down in, bought two planeswalker decks, and realized what we had been missing.
        3. I went on spring break in 2013 to playrest Star Wars LCG with a friend who used to play competitively and sell MtG cards. He told me about a format called EDH. I was talking to Ryan and he mentioned he played that format too.
        4. Ryan and I both went to a Pre-Release for Theros with some friends.
      5. Story of how we came back to Magic
        1. Zack tells the story
      6. Our first game of Commander together
        1. Ryan - Glissa the traitor
          1. Bought cards on August 9th, 2013
          1. Zack funded this deck by selling a foil sword of fire and ice
          2. Ryan has the original Ertai, the Corrupted I bought after I gave it to him when he gave me a signed one from GP Houston last year.
          3. https://archidekt.com/decks/95862#Ertai,_the_Corrupted
        2. Zack - Ertai, the Corrupted
      7. We each talk about our first Commander decks we ever built:
      8. Discuss that we were both free during the day and spent a lot of time playing magic and hanging out.
