This week’s In Development – Let’s watch some videos about reading

One of the real joys of the ongoing Magic Effectiveness Project is the opportunity to collect ideas from and write about areas of the game that I’m not necessarily personally strong at. This week, for example, I’m writing about reading your opponent. As I make clear in the introduction, this isn’t something I do with great precision myself — I tend to treat my opponent as a generic opponent — but it is something that certain players do especially well.
…and, as it turns out, “it” is not one specific skill, but rather an amalgam of skills split across two very distinct skill sets.
So, if that interests you, and you’d like to see the topic covered with the help of instructive video excerpts from Pro Tour coverage, then I encourage you to check out this week’s In Development and then let me know what you think.
