Mythic MTG Tech has been run as a personal passion for two years now. There are over 400 videos, 300 with scripts and post production work. I love creating these videos and want to do so much more!

I need your help to take this video series to the next level. These videos though are not my work alone. I have a great local community in the Seattle Area that supports this project with their thoughts, edits, criticism, and great ideas. The community is most active in the Magic the Seattling Facebook group (facebook.com/groups/MagicSeattle/), and local game stores.

Why Magic? Magic: the Gathering (MTG) is an amazing game that teaches strategy, tactics, innovation, community, and critical attention to detail. MTG has many aspects that are crucial for someone to survive in an ever-changing digital world. MTG can be used to teach skills that are useful in law, technology, and community building. Up to 25% of the channels content may be from other games, but this is primarily an MTG channel.

Why do you need money?
Making high quality videos is costly and YouTube does not pay the bills to cover upgrades. When I started, I was using an old FLIP (no hd) camera and free screencast software. In older videos the cards are barely readable, and there was no animation, sounds or remixes. Now I use a Cannon Rebel T5i, tripod (no more shaking hands), 2000W of studio lighting, and Camtasia. These upgrades were all funded by Patrons

Even with these upgrades there is room for improvement. I could really use a second stereo mic, real animation software, a pro-sumer camcorder to record full game play videos, and a PC that take less then 4 hours to render short videos. I also want  to do more interviews, travel to more events and make IRL game play videos that are just not possible with the current equipment. I even have dreams of paying the amazing people that help me with this project.

What do Patrons get?
  • More content - The more this campaign raises the more content we can make. Every patron adds to the quality and amount of videos produced
  • Choose topics - I listen to fan-input to create the content you view, like and suggest. Patrons will have a direct line for requesting video topics
  • Other perks! Want a specific perk or level added, email me! [email protected] . I am always open to new ideas!

How much should I give?
My recommendation is $5 a month, but this is really a personal question.  Any amount is appreciated!  The more that is pledged, the better the videos will get. I am super happy to be making MTG videos. I appreciate every suggestion, like, share and now ask for your patronage.

What if I want that cool Angel Token?

Everyone at the $5 or above level gets 2 Angel tokens sent to them.  The Angel is FREE to use, print, remix, download.  It was created with funds from Patrons and is under an open copyright License. CC-BY Sam Keiser. (This was the first contractor I was able to pay! This token would not exist without Patron help )

I own a LGS and want to be a Patron, can we sponsor the channel?
Yes, you to can support the channel! To be mentioned in the credits, we need to talk via email or Skype to make sure we are compatible. Mythic MTG Tech will only mention sponsors with a great reputation, that are committed to creating diverse and open community-based play environments. I strongly support the mission of the Lady's Planeswalkers Society & Planeswalkers for Diversity.

Final Promise:

Mythic MTG Tech will always be Free Content -
I will never add a pay wall or charge for access to any videos. All videos will be released under an open Creative Commons License CC-BY that allows anyone to remix or reuse the videos as they wish. (I used to work for CC.)

About the guy behind the videos:
I am a techie, non-profit lawyer, and adjunct law professor with a passion for strategy gaming. I have worked in several different gaming stores including managing a Wizards of the Coast store under the name Game Keeper back before WOTC was bought out by Hasbro. Currently I am a casual Commander (EDH) player with super competitive streak for Legacy, Modern, and Vintage.

Please become a Patron, tell your friends, share the videos, remix away and send me your comments or ideas. Mythic MTG is only a success because of the great fans and local community.

Special Thanks to: Magic: The Seattling, all the Seattle Area LGS (Card Kingdom, Gamma Ray Games, Shane's Sport Cards, Phoenix Comics, Card Exchange and the Dreaming), and Marguerite Cottrell @Maggibot.
