[MD] My most crushing defeat was when I lost to Patrick Waineright in top 16 when I got energy screwed.

[MD] My favorite card is Scyther due to his versatility and that he can do 60 in 2 rounds

[POJO] What kind of deck to you dread having to play against?

[MD] No

[POJO] Do you have a favorite card? Favorite video game character? Favorite animated series character?
[MD] My favorite card is Scyther. My favorite video game character is Venusaur. My favorite animated series character is Pikachu!

[POJO] Anything else you would like to add to this interview?
[MD] I would just like to add that all those people who think they are so good really aren't. I am talking about people who can't make their own decks. People who play Haymaker or Raindance or Stall. They think they are godly, but they aren't. I play a deck with Dittos, Scythers and Magmars. Good luck to everyone!
