The Trinisphere was created as a podcast and web-show roundtable featuring three EDH/Commander players. Each player representing one of the three main psychographic profiles in Magic: The Gathering: Timmy, Johnny, and Spike. The Trinisphere crew tackles a variety of discussion topics about EDH/Commander from their unique psychographic perspective.
I have been playing Magic: The Gathering since alpha, making me the resident old man of the group. I stopped playing somewhere around Wetherlight. During this time, I played somewhat competitively. But I was introduced to many casual formats along the way including EDH.
When I started to play again during Return to Ravnica, I decided that I would focus on EDH/Commander play and never looked back. I have a predilection toward blue and combo decks and don't really concern myself with winning anymore. I want to design and develop decks and enjoy time with my friends.
I have written for Tappedout.net in the past about deckbuilding, EDH/Commander, and card design over the years under the pseudonym squire1. I am also a cast member of commandercast.
Shannon, the Timmy, is a Software Engineer and Game Developer with 10 years experience playing Limited, Standard, and Commander. He now focuses on completing "The 32" - building a deck for every possible color combination. Shannon takes particular interest in the group dynamics, politics, game theory, and social aspects of multiplayer and alternative Commander game types.
Ryan, the Spike, is a Food Service Manager with 6 years experience playing Limited, Standard, Modern and Commander. For the past 4 years Ryan has joined up with a group of casuals to play commander, but still enjoys grinding drafts at the local game store. Ryan's game play goals include crushing dreams, wining, and taking names.
