Aryeh Wiznitzer is a teacher and Magic grinder from Houston, Texas. After years of near misses, he has recently reached the professional level of play with Top-8 finishes at GP Dallas and GP Atlanta 2015.
Rise of the Eldrazi
Aryeh loves grinding tournaments. Traveling all over and competing in tournaments is one of Aryeh's favorite parts of Magic. He feels fulfilled when he gets to see the fruits of his labors.
Aryeh recognizes that sometimes he tries to be too creative. He used to try to play a cool deck and make the cool play instead of playing to win.
Winning more and more at his local store is when Aryeh realized that he could hang with the big dogs.
Top 8 Grand Prix Dallas 2015
Limited (at the moment)
Constructed: Deck choice and side boarding. People bring in the wrong cards in the wrong match ups and lose a lot of win equity.
Draft: Towards the beginning of a format take the rares and uncommons and see if they are good. Then you'll know which ones are worth getting later on when people know more.
Find others who as invested in the event as you are. If you play with someone who has the same goal as you then you can save hours of play testing, especially if they are better than you.
Swiss draft on Magic Online - even if you lose the first round you still have a chance to make back some of your investment.
Play aggressive decks. They are usually cheaper.
