Eric Chan (@platypusplatoon)
Eric is 2-9 lifetime in Modern Masters Limited matches, which is why he sticks to cube. More specifically, his own cube, where he wields a considerable home court advantage, which he capitalizes on to barely eke out a 2-1 record each draft. Although, he did run the table at this other guy’s “1998 and older” cube one time. Which played out suspiciously like an M10 draft. Take all the Looters, Fireballs, and Lightning Bolts, then go to town. Ignore the aggro beaters like Brassclaw Orcs, those are a trap. Wait, what was this paragraph about again..? Before Eric loses his train of thought, he remembers being told to mention that he’s the engineer behind Riptide Lab, and runs a Modern cube.
