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!

Hello again, and welcome to the show notes! This is Mike, filling in for Chewie because he's out of town at MAGFest, having a nice time and being a generally all-around lucky jerk.

We were all feeling kind of wiped out by our various goings-on, but we kicked things off in the usual way: random banter and listener emails. After that, we decided to take a look at the Mirrodin Besieged Mechanics article Wizards posted earlier in the week, which previewed a number of very interesting cards from the upcoming set.

And finally, FINALLY, we get around to the mysterious topic that we keep mentioning having to put off because of time issues. Was it all worth it? Actually, that's kind of what the topic is about.

Thank you all for reading, and go listen to some dorks!
