Chrome got into the world of TCGs long ago when he was first introduced to Magic the Gathering Online. He had enjoyed reasonable success in Limited formats of MTGO before permanently switching to Hex. Itemization as well as figuring out the intricacies of TCG economies are his other areas of interest.
