Extra Life's Tabletop Appreciation Weekend is this Saturday and Sunday, October 3–4, and the Magic: The Gathering team is celebrating with its first ever 24-hour live Twitch stream featuring Magic Online's nummiest Twitch streamer (and recent Community Cup champion), Kenji Egashira! The action starts October 3 at 8:00 a.m. PT on the Magic Twitch channel!
Extra Life is all about helping kids in need. As humble Planeswalkers, we struggle against foes like the Eldrazi in the Battle for Zendikar, but that's a walk in the park compared to the thousands of hospitalized children who face far scarier challenges in life. Through the donations of our players, Magic's goal is to raise as much money as possible in support of the Children's Miracle Network hospitals and their mission to help kids. If that weren't enough incentive to help the cause, we're throwing in some sweet Magic-themed rewards for our most generous donors. Including . . .
. . . uncut premium foil sheets for our top donors! We've also got full sets from the original Zendikar block, Duel Decks Anthologies, Premium Duel Decks, San Diego Comic-Con exclusives, and more!
For more details, see the Magic Extra Life team page.
Kenji will be joined by host Matt Tabak (Magic Rules Manager), plus a plethora of other guests from the Magic team at Wizards of the Coast.
