Brett Shears :: Master of Magic

Brett Shears :: Master of Magic - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Dec 27, 2006
( Rating: 1 Star Rating)

What does it take to become a master of Magic? For Brett Shears it took a 24-hour bus ride to Denver and a ton of cool cards. Brett kicked butt and took names at the 2001 Denver Grand Prix.

Magic the Gathering is a wicked strategy card game from Wizards of the Coast (WotC.) In it, players duel each other with fantastic creatures and spells. WotC runs tournaments every year, including the Grand Prix. At the 2001 Denver Grand Prix, 17 year-old Brett Shears rocked veterans and made it to the top.

Brett had been a Magic player for years but took a two-year break. His buddies got him to start playing again. He picked up a wicked deck of Magic cards and hopped on a bus for the Denver Grand Prix.

Twenty-four hours later, he climbed off the bus and began kicking butt at the Grand Prix. His blue, black and green neo-Kowal deck blasted through the competition with snakes, zombies and the super-popular Fact or Fiction card.


In the quarterfinals, Brett whooped Mike Abraham 2 - 0 and surprised everyone by beating Darwin Kastle, a veteran player, 2 - 1. Brett advanced to the final round against Daniel Mandel - a star player from Your Move Games.


Brett won the first round when his zombies chewed on Mandel's brains until he lost all his life points - munch, munch, munch. Round number two was a slugfest of creature cards that ended as Mandel pounded Brett flat with a giant hippo to tie it at 1 - 1. The tiebreaker was a toe-to-toe match where Brett had a one-card advantage. The two players fought with everything they had. Finally, Brett blasted Mandel's two remaining creatures and stomped him with a Spiritmonger for the win.


Brett kicked some serious butt with his skills and took home over $2,000 in cash, plus an invite to the Pro Tour tournaments where $200,000 is up for grabs.

    Would you Enter a Magic Tournament?

    • Absolutely, It's a great game.
    • No way, Magic is for dorks.
    • Maybe, if I could win stuff.
    • Only if I can use a cheat code.

    I was playing the fan game Undertale Yellow and there's a character you encounter named Dalv. Dalv is a vampire yet an awkwardly shy vampire who hates intruders to his home. ...  What if he's related to the blooks? I mean... I know he's a fan made character but it's just a thought... let me explain (or at least try): Dalv (Vlad backwards) is a pinkish-purple skinned vampire who usually hides under a wood and walks around talking to himself . He has black hair in a shape close to Mettaton/ Hapstablook... and his theme...  has some  Death by Glamour vibes. Hmmm... let me know what you think...
