Ryan “The Japan Hobbyist” Schwenk is a long time Magic player who has lived in Japan since 2005. Starting his competitive Magic career in 2010 with Standard and moving his way through Legacy and Modern, he’s finally settled with a format he loves; Pioneer. Multiple GP day twos, PPTQ/PTQ top 8, and a Pro Tour appearance at PT Born of the Gods. His claim to fame is beating Saito Tomoharu in the semi finals of the PTQ in order to qualify for that Pro Tour. He hopes to bring a unique perspective of Magic: the Gathering from Japan for English speakers.
