In Magic, Jadine Klomparens is best known for two things: exceptional Modern Jund play and articles that dive deep into the theoretical underpinnings of Magic. Her accolades include runner-up finishes at both a Grand Prix and an SCG Invitational, a host of SCG Open Top 8s, and the name Jundine bestowed on her by a loving public. She's more likely to examine the play patterns of a format staple than brew a new deck, but the analysis she does cuts deeper than any individual card or format.
