Bill, aka Kurai Seraphim
Bill managed to dodge the first few waves of Magic popularity and wasn't pulled in until his college roommate Animal bought someone's collection and wanted someone to play with. After wading through a very artifact-heavy series of one-on-one games with Animal, Bill eventually joined a playgroup and met Mana Pool Rules Guru Mike. Always playing with other people's cards through complicated board states, Bill grew into a limited player with an unhealthy love of both sealed and drafting formats. He occasionally guest hosts on the Mana Pool.
Bill's writing style largely draws on narrative elements rather than objective reporting. His first Magic article, Johnny's Quest, showcased his love of janky combo decks that require a lot of pieces to do something awesome. Another article, Compleat My Ride, drew heavy influence from the comedic style of the Valve writers responsible for Team Fortress 2 while illustrating Bill's interest in finding interesting rules interactions between cards that were likely never meant to be run together.
Bill's dork status occasionally wanders beyond the card frame. Outside of Magic, Bill has written articles for Escapist Magazine on the subjects of awesome game glitches and what the flavor of magic systems can offer videogame settings. He's also worked with Japanese animation conventions, staffed a scifi/steampunk convention, and one time he found five dollars.
You can follow him on Twitter as @KuraiSeraphim, but if you're looking for Magic-related posts you're far more likely to find them under his goblin alter-ego @SqueeGoblnNabob.
