  • Name: Pietro "Elric" Cavalletti
  • Preferred Format: Old School, Vintage, Commander, Legacy


I started playing Magic in 1994, and I'm still in the game despite trying to leave it multiple times. I participated in a lot of tournaments back then and got some good results, but I'm too lazy to list them down. For merely affective and fun reasons, I largely prefer the old cards both as a player and as a collector, but I've played basically every format in the game.

I'm a kind of Jolly Joker (with the face of a Jester's Cap) being a collector, player, commentator, and writer. I'm passionate about Magic and all its aspects.

I will try to bring a little humor with a historical and classic point of view in my articles.
