About Us

We believe in Magic, and that's why you should believe in us.

"I started TopDecked because I believe in Magic. I've seen this game bring people together in ways that I never imagined, and I want to make sure we can all continue to play, our way. It helps people make friends, work through struggles, and celebrate great achievements. If we can help create stronger communities of positive people, who love to play together, then Magic is just the beginning of what we can do."

Lincoln Baxter, III
Founder and CEO, Principal Software Engineer, "Top Nerd"

"With over 25 years of experience, I've seen a lot of things go wrong, but I enjoy making sure they go right. I never imagined I would see my son's childhood hobby turn into a career (though I did teach him to code ;), and I'm excited to be working on a project that is both challenging and different."

Lincoln A. Baxter, DMA
Integration Systems Architect

"It's lab-coat time! Seriously, I love data. Give me all your data. My career is in social and behavioral analytics, working to leverage big-data to impact social determinants of health. I'm a casual Magic player and enjoy games here and there with my friends, and I think gaming is a great way to bring us together and create more connection. We're better together."

Carlene A. Mayfield, MPH
Behavioral Scientist

"I've been playing Magic for a long time, particularly on the competitive circuit, and when Lincoln reached out to me with this idea, it just made complete sense. Magic has been around for 20 years without much change, and TopDecked brings us the digital experience we've all come to expect."

Mark Stanton, DCI# (just kidding)
User Experience Designer

"Magic is life. I love this game and I know there's a lot we can do to improve the player experience. I also love software development, and the opportunity to use my skills to make an improvement in the game that I love is just too much to resist."

Christopher Lates
Software Developer
