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!

The dorks are back with another edition of There's No Plane Like Home! We're tackling (sort of) three planes this episode...and they're all the same plane! We're starting on Argentum, then moving on to Mirrodin, and ending on New Phyrexia! From quiet empty paradise to mostly good generic fantasy world (plus metal) to horrific war zone, we're covering the entire history of the plane!


Come join us in the future! The show is live on Thursdays around 8pm(ish) Eastern time on Twitch!

After some technological difficulties on Mike's part, the dorks decide to forge ahead without him! We're doing a Mythic Conscription for Visions, the follow up to Mirage. But where Mirage was loaded with good fodder for a Mythic Conscription, Visions is a little less...diverse.

But hey, at least we got Mike back partway through the episode!

First up the dorks are taking a look at the brand new reveal of Modern Horizons! Two of them hadn't seen it yet, so we get actual first impressions!

Then it's time for the main topic of this week's episode, suggested by the TMP Discord server - deckbuilding! We'll explain why some old deckbuilding rules we learned aren't great and offer up plenty of actual tips. And we'll even go further than that and discuss building for different environments and playgroups with plenty of personal experiences thrown in for good measure.

Let us know what we missed!
