    In October of 2008, Matt Antonello was shown the interaction of Channel and Lich’s Mirror at a pre-release event for Shards of Alara by an unnamed party. After which, Channel Mirror was created. The deck performed reasonably well as piloted by Antonello, Ben McCoy, and Jason Scott for a number of years. In 2011 Jacob Dunn began playing the deck and streamlined it down to the present day iteration over time.

    Experiend Pilots include (Discord usernames): Jacob Dunn (The Editor), Michael Hearn (Grashnak), Tim Evers (?)
