Customer Reviews

"I found the entire course very helpful, Key Concepts was probably most helpful because it did a great job really explaining the Control archetype and provided a great framework to prepare for control match-ups.

I liked the way the information was presented. It was detailed yet not overwhelming. The length of each section was perfect. It was one of the best articles I have ever read on MTG game play theory and practice."
