In any case: Great interview! Though I miss getting a bit of an analysis by these great players as to current meta trends and what needs to happen to disrupt them (Do they need to be disrupted?). Maybe that's a topic for another week. ^_^

Part of the problem is that all of the "big name players" from way back when are in a different spot in life now. I'm working in a game store, so I'm still active-ish, but Many people just aren't as game centric as they were 5 years ago.
As a side note, I'm not actually good at building spoils decks. My teammates were better at it- all I did was play tight and do lots of limited. I mostly played things they recommended with my own tweaks after pile.dec.

One other thing to note. Technically, I've won a limited championship, a constructed championship, and the year they were mixed together. So only 1 straight limited belt national belt for me. I'm not quite as 1-dimensional towards limited as I may seem, I just prefer it.
