David works on the Magic community team as a content specialist. He spends his days writing about Magic Online and trying to play too many colors at once in Limited.

Chosen from amongst the most devoted Magic fans out there, the Community Team faced off against the dastardly Wizards Team in the 2015 Community Cup on September 19 and 20. Across those two days of fierce competition each team's resourcefulness and Magic skill were pushed to the limit in a gauntlet of Magic challenges.

Magic Online Legacy Cube Stipulation Draft

In Stipulation Draft, players are confounded by deck-building restrictions that force a style of play that the mage-in-question might not have considered before. With restrictions like "Horrible Marksman" that prohibit the drafting of cards that can target, and "Spellbound," which only allows non-creature spells, it can fundamentally alter your usual playstyle.
