When asked about what he enjoys most about being a streamer, DeadFlip states, “When viewers contact me privately and tell me how I've improved their game, got them back into a hobby they shared with their parents back in the day, or just give them a show that allows them to laugh and shut out the world for a while, I can’t help but beam!” Click here to visit his Twitch page!

Viewers will primarily see Magic: The Gathering Arena with some fun and useful commentary as games progress.

When asked what she hopes that players take away from her channel, she says, “I want viewers to feel that our community on Twitch is a place for love and acceptance. It makes my day when people pop in just to say a quick hello, and I want them to leave with the same feeling.” Click here to visit her Twitch page!
