The Mana Pool
Join Brian, Mike, Dirk and Chewie as they discuss all things Magic: The Gathering. Since there are plenty of tournament and strategy podcasts out there, we've decided to focus on the fun of the game in all its many forms, from Prereleases to multiplayer free-for-alls to whatever else we can come up with. Give us a listen!

We have lots of stuff going on this week.  The World Magic Cup happened, for one.  That's about all the discussion we're gonna have about that.  WotC has revealed some information about some products (again) that we feel the urge to talk about.  There's the 2012 Holiday Gift Box, which you can find here:

There's the complete listing for From the Vault: Realms, which is right here:

They also revealed a Return to Ravnica card that will apparently be the Launch promo, which we're gonna talk about.  Yes I know it hasn't shown up on the Magic site anywhere just yet (for some reason) but it's official.  Trust us on this.

The main topic of discussion is all about Blue and how it fits into casual, multiplayer, and Magic in general. There's a lot of meat here that I'm just not gonna bother trying to write down, just listen. Also, a couple quick hits:
