The 2015 MTG Grand Prix Manila

I have been playing Magicthegathering for more than 8 years. It was in my college years and believe it or not, that it was my professor who influenced me to play. Fast forward to 2015, my buddies and I decided to attend the Grand Prix Manila. And so we did.

It is very often for the country(Philippines) to become host for this kind of event that is why we took the advantage.

Even cosplayers are present on the event. Cosplaying planeswalkers (from left) Ral Zarek, Liliana Vess, and Elspeth Tirel

Us, being modern players, are not suitable to attend the standard tournament. So we had other plans. We planned to go to booths and meet the MTG card artists and have our cards signed. The artists present are RK Post and Johannes Voss
