Evan Symon is a seasoned journalist with stops at the Cleveland Plain Dealer, Cracked, GeekNifty, Pasadena Independent, and California Globe.

A graduate of University of Akron, Symon has covered stories in Vietnam, South Africa, Namibia, Germany, North Korea, Slovakia, and Switzerland (in addition to across the U.S. as well, of course).

He enjoys content creation, baseball, politics, and gaming.  When it comes to Magic: The Gathering, he tends to lean towards Selesnya (G/W).

In 1994, a rare Magic: The Gathering card was only obtainable through two (unusual) methods.

For six years, many Magic: The Gathering players depended on Magic phonecards to know their rankings.

For almost 10 years, Ryan Alexander Lee has been creating art for Magic: the Gathering and, seemingly, for every company in between from 21st Century Fox to Namco.

Since 1996, Magic: The Gathering expansions have always been called something different during planning, design, and development.

Magic: the Gathering once existed as a Dreamcast game. No, really.
