I'm a professional Magic player from Denmark with five years of experience with coaching. I was a Gold-level Pro for many years straight, won the World Magic Cup as part of team Denmark, was 2023 Player of the Year and have 4 Pro Tour top 8s under my belt as well as 8 Grand Prix top 8s. During these years I have also teamed up with many of the best players in the game and learned what I can from them - knowledge that I now get to pass on to you! Not just a solid player, I'm also a competent teacher. For me it is always very enthralling to figure out potential holes in other people's knowledge base and work out how to best convey the information that will plug those holes. Magic coaching lets me combine two of my favorite passions. With me you will get flexible coaching. There are many different ways to approach a session - I have described a handful of them in my lesson description - and you get to pick whichever one you think will be the most beneficial to you. My time is also flexible, so if you need to book a time outside of my listed available ones, please message me and we might be able to work it out. This includes the weekends. We also are not just limited to Magic Arena. I can coach you through the Magic Online formats too. Take care and remember to always keep a learning mindset!

Replay Review

Send me a recording of one of your matches, and I will write out commentary for all the interesting spots. I am usually very thorough with these things and will make sure to not just chime in on the hard decisions but also the spots where you might not even have realized that you had a decision to make!

Prerecorded Game Commentary

You always get to choose which style of coaching you think fits you best. This method requires you to record your own games, and we go through the gameplay together. It has the advantage that you can pick out which games were especially difficult, and we can have a good long in-depth discussion about your plays.

Introduction Lesson

You might consider getting more than just single lessons from me and actually do a series of sessions over a period, maybe getting ready for a big tournament. Many students prefer this approach to coaching, and I've found that the first session is always best as just getting to know each other, where I can figure out what your goals are, as well as your strengths and weaknesses, I can provide suggestions for what to work on and how we can achieve that. Now, this introductory lesson is available at a cheaper price so you can get a taste of what coaching might do for you without having to commit a lot of money up front. Obviously this will only be available once per student.

Live Coaching

You always get to choose which style of coaching you think fits you best. Live Coaching is when you play games yourself and I watch what you do and comment. This is the most popular and easiest approach, though keep it mind that it can be difficult to have deep conversations about specific plays when the timer is running.

Deck Tech

You always get to choose which style of coaching you think fits you best. It does not even have to involve actual gameplay. I can also provide feedback on decks you build, or we can dive into the high-level dissection of specific decks that you are interested in.
