Jacob Wilson’s story

Today, Vice released an episode as part of their “American Obsessions” series, this one is called “The Mystical Universe of Magic: the Gathering” and it details, among other things, Jacob Wilson’s hard work towards becoming a PT Champion. I just finished watching it myself, and I really liked it.

In parallell to Jacob Wilson playing at a Pro Tour, juxtaposed are two brothers who have been playing Magic for longer than Jacob Wilson’s life, and their passion for Vintage. The stark difference, along with competent editing, makes for an enjoyable watch.

If you have half an hour to spare, I highly recommend seeing the documentary.
