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 grabbed Bill, or Squee, or whatever (@SqueeGoblnNabob) to join us for the full run-through of Journey Into Nyx now that it's all out there for all to see.  There was a bit of news too, the PAX East Magic Panel, some Conspiracy news, some Duels news, and lotsa other stuff.  So...enjoy!

It's still Journey Into Nyx preview season!  That's pretty much it.  You know the drill by now, there's really nothing much else going on.  Except for the Designer Cards from Magic 2015.  Those are pretty cool.  I love that they're using nerd designers instead of nerd celebrities, you know?

But seriously, have you seen the art for Riptide Chimera?  Holy crap that thing is terrifying. Nightmare fuel for sure.

There's also a nice little list of YouTube videos that came up during recording, they're listed below.

It's been a while since we recorded, so we've got news!  An article on Gathering Magic about Vorthos podcasts (we got an honorable mention!), new Duel Decks, and a new eBook are all on the docket, so do enjoy that.

Then we get to the fun part, the first of the Journey Into Nyx previews!  There's a god, there's all the mechanics (old and new), there's lots of crazy stuff, and there's a boat that screeches to a halt.  Oh, and the credit card mask!  Holy crap the credit card mask!  GET ON THE BOAT!

We finish up the episode with the announcement of the first video on The Mana Pool's YouTube channel!  It's a new Whazzap! video, so go watch it and enjoy and subscribe, because there will be more stuff in the future! We also spend a good amount of time thanking a listener for a major out-of-the-blue donation.  If you'd like to send us money...don't.  Just trust me on this one.  Hang onto it for a couple weeks, it'll be worth your time, I assure you.

So we're sure you've noticed that Episode 318 has yet to follow Episode 317.  You are correct.  Mike and Chewie hopped on to explain what happened. To make it up to you, we've included the outtakes from the recording of Episode 317's commercials.  Some of these are pretty funny, so we hope you enjoy!

The first video on The Mana Pool's YouTube channel is now up, you should go check it out! - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZQcc9e-sxI4

On this very special episode of The Mana Pool, the dorks are finally opening up to all the big plans they've had in the works for many months now.  From e-books to quantum computing apps and everything in between, we're revealing everything!  This will also mark the first episode all our new sponsors are on board with some nice, unobtrusive commercials to help us pay for all these amazing plans.  Oh, we also covered a few bits of news that we thought might be interesting.  You can find the links right down there.  See them?  There you go.

Thanks so much to all of you for sticking with us all this time and making this all happen!  We wouldn't be here without any of you!
