Meet the team
Matteo Orsini Jones, founder of the podcast, has been playing for well over half his life since the dark days of Prophecy. A promising PTQ player in the mid-2000’s, Matteo broke onto the big stage in 2009 with a top 8 at Pro Tour. He’s picked up a couple of GP top 8’s since then too, but nowadays he contents himself with qualifying for the PT once a year and convincing himself that one day he will be able to profit off 8-4s online.
Neil Rigby, the podcast’s most wizened host, has by far the most experience with 2 GP top 8s and over 50 PTQ top 8s (back in the day, when PTQs were a thing). Having dedicated much of his life to his passion for the game and his drive to succeed, Neil now helps out with official coverage on a regular basis, rubbing shoulders with the giants of the game.
Rob Wagner, PhD adds some balance to the podcast with his love for Eternal formats and cube drafting. That’s not to belie his skills as a player though – With a strong GP day 2 ratio and a couple of Pro Tour appearances, he can brawl with the best of em. Unfortunately, work commitments mean he struggles to make weekend tournaments on a regular basis, but you’ll still find him playing islands and snorting at his opponent’s plains somewhere in the depths of Magic Online.
Self-proclaimed grinder Matt Light has been making a name for himself tearing up the british PPTQ scene since early 2015, with more top 8s than he cares to share (unfortunately, not many of them led to a win). With 3 GP top 16s and a handful of PT appearances to add to his impressively consistent resumé, he’s just waiting for that one breakout performance that will bring him crashing (literally, probably) onto the world stage.
