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're back with Level 3 judge and SCG writer Chris Lansdell to finish up the history of the Banned & Restricted List. From the Day 0 Modern Banned List to the most recent cleanup of the miserable state of Standard, we're covering it all! And since all the announcements still exist, we can give you actual explanations for each banning and unbanning. Then we'll wrap it all up by discussing why there is a B&R list and the reasons for constantly updating it.

Just remember - Dark Ritual is fine.
