ChannelFireball is an online retailer for Magic cards and related gaming utensils based out of Santa Clara, California. It is popular for its text article and web video content produced by its associated Pro Players such as Luis Scott-Vargas, Owen Turtenwald, Conley Woods, Paulo Vitor Damo da Rosa, David Ochoa and others. As these players usually test together for large tournaments and often bring similar strategies to those tournaments, they are known as a Super-team because of the large number of members (as opposed to traditional teams who enter team events that only consist of three players, or four players comprising the team of a Nation during the World Championship).

The name of the website and team is derived from the cards Channel and Fireball, one of the original combos in Magic, and is also related to its video content.

ChannelFireball features two kinds of video content:

  • Studio videos entitled "Magic TV" in which a host would interview one or more pro players about a certain topic, such as upcoming Banned/Restricted list updates, the current state of a format, what to expect out of the next big tournament, or the Top 8 best cards in a certain category.
  • Gameplay captures, usually from Magic Online, in which a player comments on their decision process for each play they make during the game.
