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!

There's SO MUCH STUFF! We've inundated with loads of Dominaria! The official explanations of the rules changes, mechanics, sick promos, and the shiny new Dominarian Crown Molding. Also we've got Jace's Signature Spellbook, a new format straight from Wizards, and a few "voice of reason" moments from the dorks. There's not much else to say, so let's dive right in! Enjoy the giant collection of links down below!

As we mentioned briefly at the beginning of 500, the release notes for Dominaria were accidentally released early. Bill (you know, that guy on Monday Night Magic) joins us to talk about it. Don't worry, we're spoiler-free here! The dorks go over the removal of the Planeswalker Redirection Rule, the upcoming templating changes, and the sweet first card reveal, Phyrexian Scriptures.

From there, Brian rants about how Wizards of the Coast handled this leak. From there we take a look back at the notable leaks of the past, all the way back to the year 2000, and how WotC handled them. These leaks cover everything from IP theft to packaging errors to ENTIRE SET LEAKS to WotC oopsies.

Also, the MTG Arena NDA lifts soon, but Chewie still isn't in the beta. If he gets in there will be content of some sort. Probably.

And finally, JungleRatRob has done another audio clip montage for us! Look for it on the website soon!

Note: We livestreamed the entire episode complete with dork face cams, so if you want to watch that then check out the YouTube link down below.

This is it! Episode 500! We're celebrating with a full-on live stream game show. Due to legal reasons, we're calling it Jeopanaria! Our game show host is none other than Magic Judge and robotics guy Jake Janssens (@ZueluGaming), who just happened to have a full-blown Jeopanaria! game ready to go. And he offered to run it for us for the show! And it was AWESOME!

After the exciting end to the game, we spent a long while just talking about 500 episodes and doing an impromptu Q&A with the Twitch chat. It was awesome, and I want to thank you all for coming to hang out for this episode! It's extra long, but what would you expect from a 500th episode spectacular?

This episode is all about Masters 25! We're looking at all the cards that had been revealed by Thursday night, and there's SO MUCH AWESOME in it! Seriously, the episode is named this way because we said it so many times! There's even a Stangg Twin token! Come on man, this is just too good!
