This is the pregame interview with Mic Qsenoch.
Tell us a little about yourself. How old are you, where are you from, what do you do?
Mic Qsenoch: I am 29, I am from the big middle part of the USA, and I surf the internet a lot.
How did you start playing Dominion?
MQ: Like anybody else, one leg at a time.
What do you think was your toughest match in the tournament so far?
MQ: DG went to game 7, 50/50 chance on one of my last action plays to find a win, that’s pretty close!
What are your favourite and least-favourite Dominion cards, and why?
MQ: Favorite: Butcher, because it’s the strongest card in Dominion. Least favorite: do-nothing cantrips like Harbinger and Pearl Diver, they don’t do much.
What cards do you think are the most overrated? What cards do you think are the most underrated?
MQ: Just looking at some of these Qvist lists because I don’t really know what people rate things: Gear looks too high, probably because Gear BM was a meme for a while. Butcher is too low because it’s not #1 on the list. From games I play, people seem to open Shepherd all the time and I’m not feeling it.
What are your initial impressions of Renaissance, the newest Dominion expansion?
MQ: A direct quote from myself at a time when I could answer this question: “this expansion is sweet.”
What was the most memorable Dominion match you’ve ever played?
MQ: I still wake up from nightmares reliving the league championship where I needed to 6-0 Stef to win the season and I lost the sixth game playing something basic vs. something with King’s Court.
How do you like to spend your time when you aren’t playing Dominion?
What advice do you have for Dominion players looking to get better?
MQ: During/after every game, try to identify a handful of mistakes that you or your opponent made, then stop doing them. Never try to decide which player played “better”. Drink plenty of water and eat lots of vegetables.
Finally, who do you think is going to win the Championship?
MQ: Good question!
