Dave Scotford - Player Profile
Dave is the longest-serving member of Team Norse Thunder and is one of the team's founding members. Though he now mainly focuses on running the day-to-day operations behind the scenes, he is an avid Pokemon TCG, Hearthstone, and Magic: The Gathering player.
Dave originally started playing Pokemon TCG back in 1998 after his dad bought him a base set starter deck. Fast forward more years than he'll admit to, and he is now a qualified Pokemon Judge and leads events at a local game store in his hometown. On a Magic front, he enjoys the Pauper and EDH formats and usually plays some form of Blue/White control-based deck.
After a qualifying season that saw him win more than 30 events, Dave played at the 2018 Exodus TCG World Championships and ultimately finished in 11th place. He had been ranked as the world's number one player going into the event and was the only non-American player to compete.
Since the beginning of 2020, Dave has been leading the team's Hearthstone division and will be spending 2021 on a mission to qualify for major tournaments. He typically steams Hearthstone on the team's Twitch channel a couple of times a week.
