This week, Matt Sperling wrote an article entitled “Everything you wanted to know about Magic but were afraid to ask,” that has some excellent lessons gleaned from his two decades in the game. Such as “when a bad player wins a tournament, their deck is usually better than it looks,” and, “Trust everyone, but cut their cards.” So what’s another critical life lesson that you’ve learned from Magic that you’d like to share?

The Community Cup is later this month, and should the Community Team win it was announced that players who log in to MTGO during the event will get a foil full-art Battle for Zendikar basic land. But should the Wizards Team win, we will get… a foil Drown in Sorrow. Awwww. So for MTGOCC 2016, what should the player prizes be?
