Hi everybody, I'm Sean - the new Community Coordinator for Duels of the Planeswalkers and Magic Online.
That means it's my job to be your messenger on a daily basis. I'm here to listen and record the forum feedback, requests, praise, complaints and prophecies you post, and then make sure all of those are heard by the other Wizards of the Coast. I'm still new but if there's one thing I've learned during my first week in the office, it's that the people who develop and support MTG honestly want to hear what the community thinks, so I look forward to passing on the good, bad, and the ugly of what goes on here.
From here on I'll do my best to answer any questions you have, plus I'll be the one to announce upcoming events or game updates and new releases. Another one of my responsibilities is to play a LOT of Magic, so when I'm not in the forums there's a good chance I'll be in-game. Feel free to message me if you ever want to go head to head (my user name is Wizards_Sean).
I want to get to know you all as a community. To start off, what's everybody's play style? Tell me what your last match was like. What cards have you been favoring lately, and what cards in Magic 2013 Core Set do you have your eyes on? In return I'll start with a few fun facts about myself:
My first Magic expansion was Ice Age. I still have the torn up deck box tucked away in my collection, but I'd never put cards in it or breathe on it too hard because it would immediately disintegrate.
A lot of my passion for Magic Online goes toward endless deck building. I spent hours last week looking through my cards, picking a bunch out for a deck idea, then changing my mind halfway through and starting all over again. As a result, 90% of my saved deck lists are composed of 100+ cards with zero land.
I play D&D and DM for a small group of my friends. I aspire to slowly and covertly replace every player character with doppleganger versions of themselves. If successful each player will know they’re playing a clone, but will think they’re the only one. This could take months or even years, but the payoff would be glorious when everyone learns the truth at once.
Also open for discussion: your expectations for me. What would you like to see from me as your new Community Coordinator? What's been missing that you'd like to see happen, and what's the Wizards community team done in the past that you'd like to see more of?
