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 169 - Mailbag and Beasts

Holy crap we've updated the contest we mentioned in the last episode!  If you'd like to see what we've changed, go here:

We then follow up with a Mad Lib sent in by one of our listeners, Alex.  How awesome was it?  Well ideally you'd listen to find out, but I'll issue a little spoiler - pretty awesome!  And if you like our Magic Mad Libs, then you'll love this new section of the website:

We've got a whole mess of emails, since we haven't managed to check them on-air in a few weeks.  I mean it, we've got a lot!  Look at the title of this episode!  We are not screwing around here!

And since I played the old Beast deck on the last live episode, Mike decided I should do an Out of the Deck Box with it.  It's been a while since I talked about it, so I dug through the deck, told everyone what it does, and realized it really needs some changes.  So we kicked around some ideas for updates, most of which I actually executed in the time between recording and uploading.  Let me know if you guys have any other suggestions for it, I'm always willing to ignore our listeners!  I mean...listen to them.
