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 the late 2000s, Magic nearly had a new mechanic (ominously) called "Forbidden." It almost made it.
No matter how big or small an issue comes up with Magic: The Gathering, you can typically count on someone making it right.
Once upon a time, Magic: The Gathering had a much publicized role in a Disney movie… for all of about two seconds.
For five years, Magic: the Gathering had an official magazine before the internet killed the periodical star.
Back in 1994, Magic went out to destroy some of the most poorly printed cards in company history. They succeeded. Mostly.
