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!

After taking an unintentional week off, we're back with another of our Kickstarter backers! This week Elliot Hunter (@erjhunter) joins us, and he's awesome! We know this is a really long episode, just think of it as a bonus since you didn't get a new episode last week.

First off there is a tiny bit of news involving the planeswalkers in Magic Origins! The ten planes that comprise their original planes and the destination of their first planejump! Then there's the little matter of the draft pick heard 'round the world, Pascal Maynard's pseudo-controversial GP Vegas Top 8 draft pick of a foil Tarmogoyf. To see how it's doing now, click the link a little further down.

Elliot comes to us with an excellent idea that we're totally going to steal from him. Of course, he basically stole it from us in the first place, so we'll call it even. In Dirk's Creature Corner, we like to point out how the various creatures (zombies/merfolk thus far) differ from plane to plane. But what if we did that for creatures that don't really merit a Creature Corner? BRILLIANT! For the first edition of this segment Elliot wanted to cover one of the most iconic creatures that are found across most of the planes - GOBLINS! We're bouncing from plane to plane and discussing how these little green (red?) men look, act, and whatever else in each one!
