About Mike Jardine

avatar

Call him what you will, Mike, Michael, Mickey Mouse, or even Emcee Mikey, he's always going to try his hardest in any format to grind you out with pure, unadulterated midrange value. Mike has experience in literature and creative writing, but never considered it a useful skill until he realized he could write about the best game in existence. He has since added it to the list of things he might do for a living someday, along with being an actor, a programmer, or president of the United States. He hopes that his love for Magic will be a part of his career no matter what he decides to do.
