Magic: the Gathering in the UK
I'm guessing there isn't a lot of organised play down there, so online is probably your best bet:
- play MODO
- read EVERYTHING you can get your hands on (I currently read between 10 and 20 k words of Magic content A DAY, not including twitter conversations etc)
Where possible, travel to big events in the UK (London pre-release weekends, etc), and to PT/GP weekends in Europe. They are AMAZING fun, even if you mainly lose and party (ie - you are me).
Search archives on Channelfireball and blackborder and read every word you can by PV and Juza. I think PV also used to write for SCG so you could go there too. But basically they are both incredible writers and PV especially writes a lot about general game play improvements. AJ Sacher has some good mentality articles whihc I found helpful but lots of people just out right cant stand him. I like him though.
