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 186 - Commander Shenanigans (Live)

After many requests for us to talk about the various cards in the new Commander decks, we decided to go one better.  We all gathered at Brian's house, picked out one of the Commander decks, and played them in a 4-player game.  Yeah yeah, we know everyone else is doing this too.  The reason everyone else did this is because these decks are freakin' awesome, and people love to hear about them!  So we jumped on the bandwagon with the rest of the world.  The upside of us doing it is you get to hear our...unique take on things.

Just so we're clear here, Brian chose Zedruu the Greathearted, Dirk was playing Kaalia of the Vast, Mike had Riku of Two Reflections, and Chewie was rolling with The Mimeoplasm.  Spoiler Alert: The Mimeoplasm became something completely ridiculous every time it got played, but Riku set the record for number of times entering the battlefield.  Oh, and Veteran Explorer is the greatest thing ever for multiplayer.  Trust me on this.  Go to Cardshark and buy some.
