Great question! Magic the Amateuring (aka MtACast) is Maria & Meghan, two Magic the Gathering superfans. They produce a weekly podcast about MtG specifically engineered for new players, players looking to create a better Magic community, or anyone who likes to laugh! They also create tons of additional Magic content including videos, articles for DailyMTG, and hilarious Twitch streams. You can also spot these two weirdos on official Wizards of the Coast Magic tournament coverage.
How does Patreon help?
Maria and Meghan work very, very hard to bring you brand new Magic content every single week. THAT'S A BUNCH OF WEEKS A YEAR, PEOPLE! The ladies draft online, play in stores, travel to tournaments (both near and very far), and read about a billion (estimated) articles. Money you pledge to MtA's delightful and insightful content is re-invested to make it even better.
Where do my hard-earned human dollars actually go?
Your funds work to make a bunch of things happen here at MtA Labs! Including:
- Weekly episodes of Magic the Amateuring (both podcast + video versions)
- Sketch Comedy (My Roommate is a Planeswalker series)
- Vlogs from tournaments + fun events like Loading Ready Run's pre-prerelease
- Top 10 List videos (like, "Top 10 Worst Rares in Rivals of Ixalan")
- Deck Techs
- Fun streams on Twitch
- New equipment (video cameras, editing software, audio + computer gear, travel fees, etc.)
- Food so Maria and Meghan don't die (it's mostly Pizza Rolls, let's be honest)
When does your stuff come out?
New episodes of Magic the Amateuring are release every Tuesday! You can subscribe on iTunes, Stitcher, or any podcast/RSS app you like. Video episodes are posted on our Youtube channel every Thursday. New video content is posted every Wednesday!
What is the Less Than 1% Club?
That's the name we give to our fans who support us on Patreon. Why? Because less than 1% of people who watch or listen to our content donate. It's a very small number, but it's also a very important group of people. Without you, we simply couldn't do what we do.
If you do decide to support us, you have our unending thanks. We want to continue to make MtACast better and better and we can only do that with your support. More content, more laughs, more strange things that Maria says, more Magic! Here's to you, our favorite people!
