Francesco “Neo” Amati. The UW Modern Specialist.
Francesco is a devoted expert of the Modern UW midrange/control archetype. His passion for the Azorius deck is unique as he is one of the creators of the biggest Modern UW midrange/control online community in the world. He has helped a great number of players with the archetype and now he can be your Coach.
Francesco is always searching for ways to improve and adapt UW midrange/control to the Modern Metagame. So, if you like playing Cryptic Commands and Teferi, Hero of Dominaria, Francesco is the Coach you are looking for.
Our Coaching program is divided into two plans:
Francesco Amati a.k.a SPIKES_Neo is a Modern UW Control/Midrange Guru from New Jersey. He had devoted himself to the archetype for many years. His passion for the deck inspired him to create the largest UW Control/Midrange online community in the world, where he helps players to adapt and fight every change in the format.
He had written some of the best primers of the deck and coached a lot of players; from Modern enthusiasts to Professional players that look for his advice when they plan to join the Azorius Senate.
"Francesco is tireless when it comes to working on and developing UW Control to find the best versions, lists, and plans to take on the ever-changing Modern landscape."
"In addition to being a great Magic writer, Francesco is one of the most enthusiastic and dedicated members of the Magic community that I know. As the metagame has evolved, he's found countless tweaks and additions to help UW decks survive and thrive, from before the unbanning of Jace through the Phoenix era. He's always happy to bounce ideas back and forth to figure out the best way to approach new problems.”

"When it comes to building up players of any level, the only person I can recommend is Francesco Amati. A pillar in the UW/x community. Francesco is able to see metagames adapt ahead of time, and has been innovating non-stop, along with the community he has worked hard to build up around him. He would rather see others succeed with his help than be "right" and this shows with how he is able to handle criticism, or apply critical thinking with just the right amount of off-the-wall spice that can truly make or break a deck/format.

“When I think of Francesco, I think of a Blue White Control/Midrange aficionado. Why? Because Francesco gives countless hours of his time to provide in-depth analysis of his deckbuilding for the vast modern format.”
“Francesco is the most devoted Magic player I’ve ever met. Not a day goes by without multiple excited messages from him, tweaking some little thing about a deck or the Modern metagame; he’s always doing everything possible to play the best game of Magic he can.
Francesco’s also been hugely helpful to me personally in my play, often recommending cards that I really need to be playing like Runed Halo, which has now been seen all over the format to combat Phoenix and more.”
