Hello Atlas dwellers! My name is Scott and I love Magic… it gets very weird when I say that to friends and family who have no idea what MTG is, and is usually followed by “Ooo do you do card tricks?”… not that kind of magic my friend.
This is the first of hopefully many AltasCo articles to come and I’m going to use it to talk a little bit about how this happened, why we are doing this, who is involved, and what we will be doing. So lets get into it!
How did this happen?
It originally started with an ebay store as a way to sell excess cards, which quickly changed into this website when we realized that you sell cards really fast when they are listed at the cheapest price! Side note: we pride ourselves on the cheapest card prices which are constantly monitored!
Which brings me to now. The websites founder and creator (Nick – he’s awesome) began posting links to other MTG content about updates in the MTG community… light bulb! What if we published our own content!? Can we do it? Is it Possible? Will other players like it? Regardless of the answers, we had to try.
Why are we doing this?
This answer is simple. We all love magic and continuously talk strategy with one another. In fact when I first brought up the idea to the team everyone was immediately on board! This is a wonderful opportunity for us to share our ideas with everyone in the MTG community. The ultimate goal is to have our readers and listeners learn from our triumphs and mistakes, as well as have us learn from you. So please feel free to comment and let us know what you liked, what you would like to see and what we could have done better.
Who are we?
We are Team AtlasCo. I consider myself lucky to be surrounded with such a great group! Everyone contributes in some way as we all have our own strengths and weaknesses. It is because of this reason that we work so well together. Continuously giving and receiving advice on how to improve. For more info on our individual team members you can visit the Teams page.
What will we be posting?
Anything and everything MTG related! In terms of articles we have a ton of great stuff lined up including meta-game reviews, card ratings, new set reviews, deck techs, grand prix reviews (especially ones we attend), just to name a few. We will also be posting MTGO videos, limited and constructed, as well as opening tons of sealed product of new sets. We are all very excited to get started!
Until next time,
