This evening, ChannelFireball announced a new subscription service called “CFB Pro,” which will give subscribers access to articles and resources written by the members of Team CFB as well as other benefits.

CFB Pro subscriptions start at $4.99 a month (or $49.99 annually) for a basic content subscription. There is a second tier, called CFB Pro+ for $9.99 a month (or $99.99 annually) which will provide access to the Pro content as well as $10 in store credit per month—with a free entry into a MagicFest Online Qualifier if you sign up for either (Pro or Pro+) annual subscription.

CFB Pro’s subscription tiers.

The main benefit for subscribers is articles written by the members of ChannelFireball’s pro team, Team CFB, which includes Luis Scott-Vargas, Reid Duke, Andrea Mengucci, Gaby Spartz, William “Huey” Jensen, Jeffrey “Sjow” Brusi, and Martin Juza, as well as content from other high-profile creators like Ben Stark, Frank Karsten, and Matt Sperling. Those articles include set reviews, pick orders, columns, and a “Deck Vault,” which will collect deck and sideboard guides for the top decks in all formats and will be updated as metagames shift.

Other benefits include a 35% store credit buylist bonus, 5% back on cash purchases, and access to ChannelFireball’s Discord, where they host Q&As and events like live recordings of Limited Resources.

ChannelFireball’s videos and podcasts, like Limited Resources, will remain free. There will also be free articles alongside the Pro content by regular ChannelFireball contributors like Brian DeMars, Eric Levine, Alex Ullman, and Riley Knight.

CFB Pro is following in the steps of Star City Games’ SCG Premium subscription, which costs $7.99 a month, removes ads, and gives a 5% discount on purchases. However, there are quite a few differences, including the fact that SCG Premium articles become accessible to non-subscribers after a week, while it appears that CFB Pro articles will stay behind a paywall.
