My name is Alvanson, and welcome to the Lab.
The Forbidden Alchemy opened its doors on September 23, 2017, because I wanted to give back to the Magic community more than just playing. When I started playing Magic in 1996, I always had this mindset that Magic is a deck-building game and that’s my favorite aspect of the game until this day. Mixing and matching different cards to give birth to crazy and fun interactions and synergies have been the most enjoyable games for me and this is why the TFA blog is dedicated to home brews I concoct myself during my free time.
Don’t get me wrong – I am a competitive player but it’s a personal choice for me not to use meta decks. I enjoy being competitive on my own rules riding behind the Jank and Funk philosophy.
