COUNCIL FOUNDING MEMBERS
Web Admin & Graphics
Fef’s Planeswalker spark ignited around the time Jhoira completed the Weatherlight. Her first Planeswalk was to the mostly depleted Zendikar, and fell in love. Not with its eclectic, though small band of denizens, nor any of its flora or fauna. She fell in love with its emptiness, the devestation that marred the landscapes. Setting out to discover what could have possibly caused such destruction, she marshalled her favorite Commanders, the trusty trio, Trostani, and the Vexatious Varina. Will she find the answers? Only time, and maybe lots of fire will tell.
“As Jaya always said, ‘When in doubt, release the biggest boom you know.”
Stream Team Member & Writer
Hailing from the Great White North, Sebastien, probably better known as "WoWo," is one of the founding members of The Lotus Council. As a streamer on his own channel, he is very familiar with the ins and outs of Twitch moderation, which makes him the perfect streamer for us! He will also be doing a lot of behind the scenes work, as well as being the head writer for our skit segments!
Sebastien has been playing since Innistrad, and EDH is his favorite format. He is a planeswalker collector and has never actually traded or sold one away. His favorite Planeswalker card is Liliana of the Veil, and his favorite card in his collection is his Lion's Eye Diamond.
Social Media Manager & Writer
Sona started playing MTG during Revised, after his cousin introduced him to the game. He mowed lawns to pay for booster packs and after opening a bunch of Homelands, it didn't seem worth it. He collected on and off over the years until his son found his cards prior to a cross country move. With Arena and War of the Spark, he got back into the game and quickly became intrigued by Commander and Brawl. He plays a variety of formats, from Brawl & Commander to Standard & Pioneer. He enjoys playing limited and has what some might say is an unhealthy obsession with Jank. He writes the Jankmander series for The Lotus Council.
Level 2 Magic Judge & Writer
David has been playing Magic on and off since Limited Edition Beta back in 1993. However, even when he wasn’t actively playing, David always loved Magic and made sure to buy at least a few booster packs whenever a new set was released. After several years of helping with events, teaching newer players, and serving as a local “rules expert,” David became a certified Level 1 Magic Judge in May 2019 before advancing to Level 2 in June 2020.
Although he plays almost every format under the sun, David’s favorite ways to play Magic are Draft and Commander. His favored decks in any format are Mono-Red Aggro, especially loving Goblin Tribal or Burn decks. David’s love of Red runs so deep that his favorite cards are Raging Goblin and Lightning Bolt, and the most cherished part of his collection are his many 1/1 Red Goblin tokens. David also loves the lore of the game, and enjoys reading and discussing the many wonderful Magic stories.
Web Admin & Writer
Koert has been playing Magic since about 1995 and enjoys talking Magic, covering just about any topic (gameplay, deckbuilding, finance, rumors, etc.). Should you have any suggestions, or just want to chat, feel free to send him an email!
Koert also co-founded Project MTG back in 2017 to help foster and promote online MTG communities. He was previously the Web Admin for ExoticMTG and is the current Web Admin for The Lotus Council and the MTG 31 Days of Christmas project (www.31daysofchristmas.com).
