Fire away! Consider it an AMA. No subject off limits: the format, Magic, judging, the Pro Tour, broadcasting, school, food, writing, wine, life, etc.. Likely to publish next week Thursday (the 29th).

How do you get new cards? Buy boxes? Draft? Singles? Whole sets?

If you ever make it out to Seattle, would you invite me to play some EDH with you and Scott? :)

Have you ever played with Planechase Planes? If so, did you use any variant rules (Blind Eternities Map, etc)?

In your years playing Magic, judging, and casually observing, are you aware of a trend in which players utilize extensive maths knowledge during gameplay? Do you subscribe to the results of the shuffling logrithm when determining if a shuffle was sufficient?

During your time as a Judge, what is one card that you feel made players the most frustrated during competitive events?

If you could suggest one card to be run in every EDH deck (other than mana sources), would what it be?

Why is Iona, Shield of Emeria still legal? Purely on its own merits, doesn't it (formally speaking) Interact Badly With the Format because of EDH's unique Colour Identity rule?

What varients of EDH do you often play with? Planechase? Vanguard? Archenemy? 2HG? Etc.

With perfect mana, reasonable removal, disruption, and card advantage, we're back to pitchforks and torches. And it's about to get worse for those who do not enjoy the game as Richard Garfield intended, playing as few win conditions as possible and prompting concession after all hopes (and spells) are lost. - Shaheen Soorani

Maple Crown Royal - clever marketing and flavour to cover up a mediocre whisky or delicious and fiendish trap to encourage the over-consumption of spirits?

Should CI be properly spelled Color Identity or Colour Identity?

Should players who spell it incorrectly receive a 10 life penalty at the start of the game, or just ten lashes?k

What discontinued keyword or mechanic (Banding, Manaburn, Ante, etc) would you bring back if you could?

Koreans have a saying, "Even a monkey can fall from a tree," which is appropriate for those who believe themselves flawless; what is your favorite proverb or saying (from any culture)?

Are you patiently awaiting colourless basics like some people or do you think Mono Brown is fine as it is? I recently made a colourless deck and having every land be some kind of spell is very powerful and i find the deck is more powerful for it, rather than less

How much do you value sportsmanship, not just at the EDH tables but on the Pro Tour as well?
This is something I've been working on improving, not easy but ultimately rewarding when it works.

If there was any race, animal, craft, or any other thing from real life or any of the thousands of myths and stories that encompass the general genre of magic that you could have appear in a future set, what would it be?

Personally, I would enjoy more sea monsters and if they could find a way to incorporate a race of sentient moose I would be extremely happy.
