Maybe it is a bit late to introducing myself since I have already played two League seasons (E division of course
I am a Brazilian guy doing PhD in Biomolecular Physics. I usually travel to Germany once in a year to record some data for my thesis.
It was in Germany that I found Dominion. I used to play IRL with some friends, just to have fun. Chapel was really weak for me since it did not make sense trashing my economy. I used to buy all the cards available in a kingdom, supposing that was the best thing to do. That is why my picture here is from Menagerie
Once I found out Dominion Online and the Strategy Forum. I remember reading "The Five Deck Types" from theory on the blog... Those texts really helped me to improve my playing (by a lot!). I played the Dominion Meisterschaft Championship in Germany and I was crashed in the preliminary group by a Conspirator engine pretty badly. Ever since I realized a whole new level in Dominion! How you can spend hours discussing/playing a single board!
I am planning to post an article about Bonfire soon. It would be nice to hear your feedback.
