As far as the benefit of the rest of Magic is concerned, gold cards in Legends were executed perfectly. They got all the excitement a designer could hope out of a splashy new mechanic without using up any of the valuable design space. Truly amazing.
--Aaron Forsythe's Random Card Comment on Kei Takahashi
She liked board games and role-playing games already, and moving into Magic was smooth. She didn't like that sometimes other players treated her differently (So hey, let's knock that off!)
Treat her different? As in making a point to include her in an article, simply for the fact that she's a woman, with no relevance to the tournament report?
Love teh Baneslayer, Armored Ascension, draw step Doom Blade play. That'd make the whole day worth it.
