Chris Harrison ‘CardCounterChris’
CardCounterChris met the love of his life, Magic: The Gathering at the middle school lunch tables in 1999 at the ripe age of 11, just after the release of Mercadian Masques.

He later returned to the game during Scars of Mirrodin while in the U.S. Navy and started participating in FNMs PTQs and GPs.

Daryl Hartley ‘WaifuGate’
WaifuGate began his Magic the Gathering career at the age of 12 during the Torment and Odyssey block; he’s continued to play on and off throughout sets. The last time he played competitively was during Return to Ravnica. By watching a streamer that goes by the name TheGraveCrawler, he discovered MTG: Arena, and fell in love with the game again. The ability to playtest decks on a whim ignites an old passion rivaled by nothing else for WaifuGate. Currently, WaifuGate enjoys complaining about Teferi(even if he brews/pilots decks with him), and is trying to discover a list in which he can sink unlimited time into; it might not be a specific list, but a playstyle. Right now, he enjoys playing mostly off-meta control and some midranges lists. He recently switched from Path of Exile to streaming MTG, and will continue to do so until the end of his life.

It wasn't long before Jack started crushing his local FNMs, going on to seek out bigger fish at higher stakes tournaments. The objective in his Twitch Channel is to provide a welcoming and thoughtful community for all to enjoy, but particuarly those who aim to step up their game. He is never afraid of stepping outside of the meta and challenging current ideas of what's best, and looks forward to participating in the coming E-Sports scene in Arena.
