Bluffing, Lying, and Playing Your Opponent by Onikage
Anyone who has ever played poker can understand this. Playing your opponent comes in the form of mind games, bluffing, and sometimes just plain lying (without breaking the rules) to gain any advantage.

Locus of Control by Kevin Weber
I finally realized why I'm a better Magic player than the others at the coffeeshop. And it has nothing to do with fundamentals or tactics. It's something much simpler.

The Expert's Role in Magic by OrnithopterLover
The expert holds with him/her a wealth of knowledge about magic that many players don't know, much of which is taken for granted. The expert should make it a goal to help players who don't play as well.

Combo of the Day
Puca's Mischief Buy + Immortal Coil Buy + Relic of Progenitus Buy
Funny way to win. Give your opponent the coil. That will throw then off gaurd. Then you play the relic then use its remove graveyard ability FTW!

Also works with Tormod's Crypt Buy or Jund Charm Buy.
