Metagame Gurus Form to Compete at SCG Events

Team Metagame Gurus is a skilled Magic: The Gathering group focusing on the Starcitygames.com circuit. The team was formed to share their knowledge of Magic with other players and to help grow the game. Metagame Gurus is comprised of some of the most successful players on the SCG Tour, the most watched tournament circuit in the game. Meet the Metagame Gurus:

Metagame-JimDavis-180x180

Jim Davis

Jim is the Metagame Gurus team captain and the reigning (2015) SCG Players’ Champion. You can often find him sharing MTG tips at metagamegurus.com, Starcitygames.com, or streaming at Twitch.tv/JimDavisMTG.

Metagame-PeteIngram

Pete Ingram

Pete is perhaps the most versatile member of Team MGG, and this has led him to success at almost every level of the game across a wide variety of formats.

Metagame-AndrewJessup-180

Andrew Jessup

Andrew is widely known as one of the best Legacy Elves players, with a finals appearance at the SCG Tour Open Worcester in 2015, and is also a very skilled pilot of Modern Infect and Modern Affinity.

Metagame-KevinJones-180

Kevin Jones

Decks that Kevin likes to play are notoriously difficult to play against and his innovation has shaped formats more than once – most notably the Jeskai deck he used to win the SCG Tour Open in New Jersey in 2014.

Metagame-DanJessup-180

Dan Jessup

While Dan is very comfortable going with whatever has the highest power level in Standard, in Legacy he has always stuck to his guns as a Temur Delver player with a number of excellent finishes under his belt with the deck.
