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 not recording for a staggering 2 weeks in a row, the dorks are back! We've got a very cheeky Sam Quiz to kick off the whole thing, because what's a better way to get back into the groove?

After that, we're all-in on Core Set 2019 previews! After 3 years without a Core Set, Magic has decided that it's a necessity. So they've changed the way they build these sets, with beginner-friendly cards at common & uncommon and laser-focused answers and super-neat cards at rare & mythic!

Captain Sniffles rides again! And the Beardy Man has completely forgotten how Magic cards work! Will our heroes get through the episode without incident? You'll just have to listen to find out!

This episode was recorded a few weeks ago, but it's going up now since we're not recording this week! But here's the hitch - it's not a live episode! Man, the title is right - time travel is weird.

On this episode we're going all the way back to the beginning. Not the VERY beginning, just after that. We're doing a pair of Mythic Conscriptions for Magic's first two expansions - Arabian Nights and Antiquities. Since the old expansions are small, we could easily knock two of them out. Well, maybe not easily. These sets represent the earliest days of MTG's expansion design...and it shows. Be sure to let us know what you think!

What's that? A Sam Quiz for a card none of us expected? And a listener-submitted Mad Lib? AND even more discussion of the crazy stuff going on in Battlebond? All in the same episode? That's awesome! Where do I sign up?

And get that look of Frog Tongue off your face!
