Co-host of YMTGT from 2014-2016.
Stephen Marshall began using Magic cards to play games that bore no semblance to the official rules of Magic: The Gathering sometime in 1994. He then took a brief (two-decade) break from the game after Ice Age was released and Magic was ruined forever. Stephen is a deck hipster, preferring to play rogue strategies whenever Burn is not viable. If there is a new deck putting up results, he was probably playing it before it was cool, and before it was good. He can be found on MTGO under the username moonpi and is available 24/7 for playtesting or vicious trolling.
