This stream will be taking place on the official Magic: The Gathering Twitch channel.
Hunter Pence is a right fielder for the Texas Rangers baseball team. A former player for the San Francisco Giants, Houston Astros, and Philadelphia Phillies, Hunter is an accomplished baseball player who has made it to the World Series twice in his career. In addition to his baseball accomplishments, Hunter is also a lover of Magic: The Gathering.
It’s not often that the worlds of baseball and Magic cross, but here we are! In fact, if you search the main MTG subreddit, r/MagicTCG, for Hunter, you get a load of posts where fans have spotted him in LGSes or streaming Magic on Twitch. In fact, a couple of years ago Hunter and his wife became owners of the LGS Coral Sword in Houston, TX. As if that wasn’t enough, he also was able to spoil 2 cards for Modern Horizons spoiler season that you can check out here!
Egashira is currently a professional Magic: The Gathering player who often streams on Twitch. A skilled Limited player and longtime MTG fan, Egashira is a renowned and active community member.
