Hi, I’m MTGJoeD and I like making stuff!
I’m a Magic: The Gathering player, writer, streamer, and video maker from Boise, Idaho. I started streaming on Twitch at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic as a way to feel less alone during lockdown.
I love making YouTube content! You can find stream replays, videos about Magic: The Gathering and other games, and how-to videos on my channel!
I’m always thinking of new ideas, and I’m always open to community feedback! Is there a kind of video you’d like to see from me? Let me know!
I started streaming on Twitch at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic as a way to feel less alone during the lockdown. Since then, hanging out with my chat community has become one of the best parts of my week!
I stream every week! Most of the time you’ll find me streaming Magic: The Gathering in some form or other and I have Wild Card streams every week where I play games requested by members of our Discord community. If you want to keep up to date on my schedule I have a handy dandy calendar right here.
Before I became a web developer by day and a content creator by night, I was pursuing a degree in Creative Writing. Writing is one of my biggest passions and I continue to stoke that flame by writing gaming-related content for various websites (as well as short stories, but that’s for another time.)
I was the QS Insider Community Manager over at Quiet Speculation! They’re the go-to resource for MTG Finance and I’m proud to have been a part of their content team. As part of my job over there, I wrote a weekly article on various Magic: The Gathering topics and covered breaking Magic news. You can read my work here.
From my Patreon page:
“Okay, so why should we give you money?
Well, like Jacob Geller says on his Patreon page, “you’ll be supporting the kind of work you want to see in the world.” I want to make content that makes people happy, that makes them think, that helps them feel less alone in the world – and my Patreon subscribers get to help shape that content. Along with other benefits, top tiers get to vote on what kind of content I work on next and submit ideas for things they’d like to see made.
Other benefits at the various tiers include early video access, names listed in the credits of my video projects, behind-the-scenes access to stuff like scripts and storyboards, inclusion on my Christmas card list, and the knowledge that you’re helping keep my fur babies’ bellies full.
I’m new to this whole Patreon thing, so I’ll be continuing to add benefits to the other tiers based on feedback from my Patrons!”
Big shoutout to my sponsors! They help me keep doing what I’m doing and I’m super grateful. I’m always on the lookout for cool companies to partner with – if you’re interested in some form of sponsorship feel free to reach out any time, I’d love to chat!
Phoenix Fire Games sponsors box openings on my YouTube channel. They’ve been my FLGS since I started playing Magic and I can’t recommend their store enough. If you live in the Treasure Valley you owe it to yourself to stop by their shop and check out all of the wonderful gaming stuff they have to offer, and if you’re not lucky enough to live nearby then you can still get anything you need from their website!
