Step One – Choosing a Root

As you might guess from the “Johnny” in my name, I get most of my TCG enjoyment from creative deck building.  I go out of my way to avoid using established decks and instead spend my time looking over all the overlooked cards in the game, seeking out potentially powerful cards that haven’t yet become known to the masses.
