Working in R&D since '95, Mark became Magic head designer in '03. His hobbies: spending time with family, writing about Magic in all mediums, and creating short bios.

One day I hope to make Greased Weasel the name of a real card. (Although don't hold your breath.) And just as you can't stop the Greased Weasel, neither can you stop this column from ending. (Okay that segue gets a D-.)

Yes, it's time to extract yourself from my warped mind. (Who knew the Three Stooges played Magic?)

But don't worry I'll be back next week with a new and different column.

Until then, may your weasel always be greased (okay, that sounds kind of dirty, but I honestly don't mean it to).
