OpTic Pterodactylsftw: "I don't think I would actually be where I am now if it wasn't for the people I met playing Magic."
Depending on who you ask, seeing Sheila 'Pterodactlysftw' Weidman at a Magic the Gathering tournament is the first or last place you'd expect her to be. Although Weidman's current game of choice is Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, her roots in collectible card games goes back almost a decade, before she grew one of the largest Twitch streams on the platform and joined OpTic Gaming. Over the weekend, alongside 63 other Magic: The Gather Arena players from around the world, Weidman put her skills to the test in the Mythic Invitational held at PAX East in Boston. Up for grabs was a $1 million prize pool.
