This Thursday in these United States of America, we celebrate the time in history that we Americans like to think we very nicely asked the Native Americans to have a delicious Butterball turkey and stuffing dinner with the Pilgrims. Nowadays, we use Thanksgiving to celebrate what we Americans are thankful for, so as a Magic player what are you most thankful for this year?

Over the weekend, Paulo Vitor Dance Dance Revolution made a tweet discussion the possibility of playing a Pithing Needle naming Abandon Hope in an unlosable game… for the trolls. Now Pithing Needle naming Abandon Hope in an unlosable situation might be enough of a needling to actually make your opponent concede, so given the opportunity, what card would you name in certain game situations?

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?
