    well mine's paul mccabe. his 97 counterburn deck is one of my all-time favorite decks.
  2. Killer Joe Active Member

    Alright, I'll bite.

    Michelle Bush - She was a med student in the Boston area a while back and used to write for Star City (I Think). She's either the inventor of the "Trix" deck or the reason why some key cards got banned like Dark Ritual and Mana Vault.

    Johnny "Friggin" Rizzo (Okay, so he's NOT a professional tourney player, but one helluva <onik>ing good writer and funny, too.)
  3. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    I only remember the "first generation" pros, so it's probably not too valid, but I thought Ollie Rade and Shawn "Hammer" Reginer(?) were noteworthy.
  4. train The Wildcard!!!...

    you guys ever heard of a Randy Buehler?...

  5. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    Know him, but not my favorite... ;)
  6. Reverend Love New Member

    Hammer who won with a creatureless grind deck in a pro tourney waaay back in the day.
  7. orgg Administrator

    Jamie C. Wakefield, the King of the Fatties.

    Really, there are none higher in quality of wrighting or in style.

    kai budde's a good deck maker don't ya think?
  9. train The Wildcard!!!...

  10. Almindhra Magic's Bitch

    How about Mike Long?....I like how tall I feel when standing next to him....
  11. train The Wildcard!!!...

    nice point Mindy...

    He looks kind of cute between the thumb and pinkie finger...;)

    Tops - Jamie Wakefield, a (former) pro that casual types can be proud of.

    Other faves:

    Olle Rade is very gracious, as is "Hammer" Reigner (he signed my Hammers of Bogardan, is that cool or what?).

    Sol Malka is the least egotistical player you'll ever meet, as well as the best judge when it comes to explaining things.

    Zvi is a real nerd, but can be quite funny to watch (It really is true, pros get mana-screwed, too).
  13. Rooser Thread Necromancer

    Oscar Tan:cool: ;)
  14. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    Is Oscar a pro? I think he sticks to Type 1 and with a couple exceptions, usually the Pro Tour is Type 2.
  15. Rooser Thread Necromancer

    Yeah that's why I went with the double smiley.


    He's not a pro, I was just fooling around. And I think if Type 1 was on the pro tour, he'd probably be a part of it.
  16. chris92 king

    is mike long the pro known for his cheating?
  17. Istanbul Sucker MCs call me sire.

    I have no favorite pro players.

    Generally speaking, you don't get to pro standing unless you learn how to cheat properly.

    And that makes me sick.
  18. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    Rooser: Ah.

    chris92: Yes.

    Isty: I disagree on principle :)
  19. train The Wildcard!!!...

    yeah - I'm not a pro - but I'm not a cheater either...;)
  20. Notepad Seffy Sefro

    Right about now, I'd have to also say Mike Long, but for much different reasons. Call it the past coming back for a big bite, but if I saw the guy in person right now I'd give him a big hug and say:

    "I forgive you!"

    And just walk away, leaving him to wonder just what the hell that was just about.
