This is a short post to lay out the details of how the deck queue works on the stream. Continue reading to learn how to get me to shill your favorite deck for you!
How to Submit a Deck
The first step in submitting a donation decklist is filling out this Google form. You should always get confirmation I am willing to play your deck before sending a donation for it.
I reserve the right to refuse any list for any reason. In general I am willing to take a crack at any tier’d deck or anything especially sweet (read: turn 1-2 kills). Once I have confirmed I am willing to play a list you have sent me you should send a donation using this link. In the donation comment be sure to include a link to the decklist as well as your Twitch username.
How much it costs
The queue is currently slowed. Learn what that means here.
If you are one of my Twitch subscribers you need to send at least a $10 donation. If you are not one of my Twitch subscribers you need to send at least a $20 donation. If you are bad at math this means it is cheaper for you to subscribe and donate $10 rather than $20, but who am I to tell you how to spend your money.
Build Around a Card / Idea
For a minimum $50 donation I will build a deck list around a card, cards, or rough idea of your choosing. You should always confirm I am willing to work with your idea before donating – because sadly not all cards / ideas can be made into something competitive.
When your deck gets played
Once you send a donation the decklist you submitted gets added to the donation list queue. Decks generally get played in the order they are in the queue.
Don’t like waiting? Me neither!
Thankfully money talks. You can throw a kicker donation on top of the base amount to push your deck’s democracy points up. For every $1 / 100 bits sent a deck gains an extra point towards how soon it gets played. So for example a deck that has been waiting 14 days would have the same points as a deck that had $14 extra dollars donated for it.
As an extra bonus for large donations – any non-cut the line donation over $50 will get a 20% bonus. People who support me a good deal do not need to wait as long.
Free Donation list every month for $25 Subscribers
As a thank you to my $25 (tier 3) subscribers you get a free donation decklist on the house! Just fill out the Google Form while being sure to indicate that the submission is for your tier 3 sub.
As a bonus for being consistently awesome your monthly donation list choice will also come with a bonus $30 worth of democracy points.
Bonus every month for $10 subs
While $10 (tier 2) subs do not get to add a deck list every month – they still support me extra so I give you a little bit extra back! As a thank you to my $10 subs, every month when you resub you can add 10 bonus points to a deck you like in the queue so it comes up faster.
SKIPPING THE LINE
If you really want to see something sooner rather than later, for a $100 donation I will change up the schedule for the current day and play your deck as soon as the current league I am in is finished.
Q: Are you a sellout for doing this?
A: Absolutely! But Declan is fat and expensive to feed, so here we are. (Disclaimer: Declan eats regardless of how many donation decklists we get, but he really is fat)
Q: How long does a deck get played for?
A: Magic decks are played for a minimum of two matches.
Q: When does my deck get played?
A: When it gets to the top of the deck queue. Total points is Dollars Donated + Days in the queue.
Q: Can I make changes to my deck while it is waiting to be played?
A: Yes! You are encouraged to keep testing / tuning a list while it waits in the queue. Simply update the list at the link you have provided to put in the queue. The day before I play the deck I will download the latest.
Q: Do I have to provide cards for the deck I donate to see?
A: No. MTGO Traders, one of my sponsors, hooks me up with whatever MTGO cards I need. They are great!
Q: Can you notify me when you are playing my deck?
A: Not likely. It is hard to predict when a deck will get played exactly because people donate to move different things up almost every stream.
Q: If I can’t watch my deck live will there be an archive of it being played?
A: Definitely. All of my streams get archived to my YouTube channel here.
Q: Can I donate to move someone else’s deck up the donation queue?
A: Yep! Who am I to refuse your money?
Q: What else can I pay you to do on stream?
A: I don’t know – How much money do you have?
