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!
Episode 162 - I Am the Elephant of Death (Live)

Once again, we all gathered at Dirk's house for Magic playing and snacks, and so you get to listen to us do so on this episode.  We start off with a nice LONG game of Elder Dragon Highlander, or Magic: The Gathering Commander if you prefer, or Dorky Card Game with Different Rules than Usual if you wanna be real about it.  But either way, that's what we're doing.  It's Fumiko the Lowblood vs. Karrthus, Tyrant of Jund vs. Tolsimir Wolfblood vs. Sliver Overlord (Brian's a filthy whore) in this knock-down, drag-out, hyphenated-words fight to the death!

Then we decided to show you guys that Brian isn't the only filthy whore and play a game of Archenemy.  Mike built a deck that only a horrible horrible person would build, then supplemented it with a Scheme deck that only makes it more horrible, and we decide to let him kill us for your amusement.  Well, I knew that's what would happen.  Brian and Dirk were more optimistic, but you know what they say about ignorance in this particular case.  But it does make for a good show, listening to Mike summon up a Shoggoth to have vicious sex with our faces while pouring sugar in our gas tanks and making us listen to miserble old twangy country music and Swedish death metal at the same time.

Wow, that was out there.  Uh, hope you enjoy the episode!  Next time is a look at Mirrodin Besieged as a whole, with a full Chewie-less hour! *gasp*
