Everyone has amazing, unique works in them, and something great to share with the world. Everyone also has some learning to do. Remember that the two come in roughly the opposite order.

Once again, we’re all gearing up to get our hands on some fresh cardboard with Khans of Tarkir. Prerelease weekend is always an exciting time, but let’s not forget some of the basic necessities for having a good prerelease:
✔ SLEEP: This is a tough one. If you’re like me, I always have trouble falling asleep before a big, exciting event. Nonetheless, sleep is necessary if you want to be alert and on your toes while playing Magic this weekend. (This is doubly important if you’ll be attending a midnight prerelease!)
✔ SNACKS: Food is good. One of the things I find most often brings players down during long prerelease events is hunger. No one likes to play Magic on an empty stomach. If your local shop doesn’t offer food or drinks, plan to bring some light snacks or even a meal to keep you nice and fed.
✔ EXTRA SLEEVES: This one is mostly for newer players, but even I’ve had times where I completely forgot to bring extra sleeves. Sleeves are important if you want to protect your new cards from wear and tear while shuffling during the prerelease. Your local shop will most likely be selling sleeves if you don’t have any.
✔ DICE/COUNTERS: It’s always a good idea to bring extra dice, counters and tokens for keeping track of all the crazy shenanigans that might transpire during a match. Most players will usually be nice enough to let you borrow dice or counters if you simply don’t have any. But don’t be afraid to ask!
✔ EXTRA DECKS: A lot of players forget this one, but you’d be surprised how much time there might be to kill while waiting for a prerelease to start or round to end. Many players like to get to events early, so it’s a good idea to have just-for-fun decks on hand to practice with friends while waiting. For those looking to trade, bringing your trade binder might be a good idea as well.
Of course, the most important thing to bring to any Magic event is your FRIENDLINESS. We are all called to be top-notch ambassadors to this wonderful game we love. Prerelease events are often the first exposure new players ever have to the game and the community. Let’s make sure they come back for more.
p.s.: *GAMER FUNK IS NOT ACCEPTABLE* The only thing anyone should be smelling at a prerelease is the smell of freshly-opened booster packs.

You have masterpieces in you. And every mark you make on a piece of paper, every thumbprint in clay, is a tiny lesson. Keep going and it will enrich your life, expand your understanding, and yes - make you a better artist. And a better person.

Crap, I might have to play Sultai just for that purple dice. I’m so glad they’re exploring different colors this time.
