Follow me on Twitter/Reddit for regular updates!

This is Tide Drifter, one of Magic’s many Drifters!

I’m MTG Arena Zone’s content manager and main editor alongside being quite a prolific site author! I have 50-60 articles at this point, listed from most recent below.

  • For my Limited tier lists, click here: Ikoria/Theros. Each of those link to my set reviews with descriptions at the beginning of the format, and you can find full written tier list updates in the “Changelog” section at the bottom. I offer Limited coaching (i.e. for the Draft and Sealed formats) alongside those; message me through our discord or using one of the social media links above if you’re interested in that!
  • I also do a ton of Standard content, including weekly metagame updates and deck guides. I’ve even been known to do the occasional Historic or Brawl article, and one or two opinion pieces!
  • Perhaps my favourites among the articles I’ve written are my Strategy Guides, especially Hypergeometric Calculators, Heuristics in Magic, and Priority and the Phases of Each Turn.
  • I love deckbuilding! You can find some of my brews and theorycrafts below.
