Our courses give you an expert point of view from the best players in the world. Teachers create their courses based on their own experiences, tournaments successes, and testing process.

Glowing Student Feedback

"I purchased both courses and it's the little things that helped most. I've gone from a casual player to someone who consistently places high in larger tournaments. The simplicity of returning to the a course before an event and having a refresher helps immensely even when prep time is short. I'd recommend these courses to an individual that wants to take down their FNM with a homebrew or the person looking to take on the competitive circuit."

- Phil Blythe

"Spikes Academy has definitely given me heuristics to help improve my play. Before it was very dependent on how good a limited deck I made but now I am better at playing with what I have and not dependent on luck as much. Win rates have improved for sure."

- Will Henson

Frequently Asked Questions

Am I getting a good deal?

Yes. Considering that each class is less than what each pro charges for one hour of coaching, it is an incredible value. You get several hours of laser-targeted course content in a very digestible format.

If you internalize and incorporate the lessons contained in these classes, your return on investment in prize winnings or gems on MTGA will far exceed the cost of the course.

This is not even considering the additional benefit of being able to join a community of likeminded Spikes to help you along your journey to competitive success.

How long do I have access to the courses?

You get lifetime access to the courses and their associated course materials. Come back and revisit a class before a big tournament, or give yourself a refresher each year -- it's your choice.
