For The Old School Magic Player by Saran Ekambaram
Magic is about more than just numbers and damage and phases and the stack. Aside from all the rules and mechanics, we play the game because of the way it makes us feel. Mostly, the majority of us play because it makes us feel happy or like we are having fun. If not for how the game makes us feel, what point is there in playing at all? Would we really be playing if it made us feel like garbage?

Combo of the Day
Eureka Buy + Suppress Buy
Easy. Suppress Buy your opponent so they can't play anything, then Eureka Buy and play every permanent in your hand. Looks like a fair exchange to me.
