DeckHub DeckHub Twitch Extension

The DeckHub Twitch extension is used by Twitch streamers to display their currently played deck in the video overlay. After a quick install you can select any public deck on AetherHub to be displayed in your overlay, here is how you set it up:

How to install

Open your Aetherhub Profile editor
  • Select "My Account" top right corner, then "Edit Profile". Click the "Copy" button where it says "Twitch Secret"
Install DeckHub Twitch extension on
  • Install DeckHub on Twitch by clicking this link
Configure App
  • After install click the app and select "Configure" put in Aetherhub Username and the Twitch Secret, click "Connect".
  • Make sure the Extension is active! Go back to Extensions, you will see a list of your installed extensions. Set it is set as an Active Component overlay and put it on the far left side and on the top for the best experience. If you only use one extension you can set it as Overlay 1 instead of Component
You are done!
  • Clicking the Twitch button on any public deck will now set it as your current Deck in the extension

Got to know Naban during the Dominaria draft on mtga. We got talking, exchanged some ideas on putting his ability to good use. He works for me now. So I'm not sure what to classify this deck as, it sort of controls and sort of burns but overall really does not do much beyond conjuring cheap tricks. Which is a hell of a lot of fun when it works, to be honest. As always, feedback is welcomed.

Update v1.1

  • 4x [[Academy Journeymage]] for 4x [[Storm Sculptor]]; needed less muddling and more oompf
  • 4x [[Siren's Ruse]] out; more value for a ETB pirate deck, in stead
  • 2x [[Quasiduplicate]] in; increased board pressence, fire ETB
  • 1x [[Naban, Dean of Iteration]] in; nothing works without this card
  • 1x [[Curious Obsession]] in; this should have been a 4-off from the start

Card choices

{{Naban, Dean of Iteration}}

Our key card, [[Naban, Dean of Iteration]], is not exactly sturdy so our first issue is our ability to keep it in play using [[Siren Stormtamer]] and [[Wizard's Retort]]. This deck is nothing without this card, so we run 4. 

{{Exclusion Mage}}{{Storm Sculptor}}

{{Viashino Pyromancer}}{{Ghitu Journeymage}}

Basically I have collected the cheapest wizzard spells with on-entry effects I could find. I have considered [[Merfolk Trickster]] too but the double blue cost and the one turn delay underperform considering the severe tempo swing that comes with returning half a board to the opponents hand. My main issue in the previous version was closing out games, enter [[Storm Sculptor]]. The unblockable is nice to scrape away those final life points and allows us to recast two of the burners if we are lucky.

Note: The [[Storm Sculptor]] ETB-ability is mandatory. Keep your board state in mind.


Triggers ETB and widens our board, what's not to like.

{{Wizard's Lightning}}{{Wizard's Retort}}

No wizard package without wizard tricks.

{{Memorial to Genius}}

The chief issue of this deck is the ability to continue generating momentum. [[Memorial to Genius]] has proven its worth many times over when it gets late, but I would much rather have a source of card draw earlier on too. For now [[Curious Obsession]] works but something more consistent (and less sensitive to removal or block) would be better.
