Rise of Eldrazi
The Gitrog Monster
Maitland resigned himself to the outcome of a game before it was even done.
To overcome that he started recognizing when he would have those thoughts, acknowledge them, and then actively push those thoughts out and focus on winning the game.
When Maitland was shown how to play around cards he experienced a level up moment.
People are the most important aspect of Magic.
Ask opponents what they drafted and show them what you drafted. Ask questions. Make sure you are asking people who it isn't their first time.
Feeling pressure. This blinds some players. Put yourself in situations as often as you can so you aren't pressured when at big events.
