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 195 - Innistrad Previews 1

News news news!  We've got the announcements about the Duel Decks: Ajani vs. Nicol Bolas deck lists and the Duels of the Planeswalkers 2012 expansion, so of course we had to cover all that.  There was a lot of concern from our listeners regarding the various and sundry natural disasters that hit our area, so we had to talk about that a bit, including a mightily depressing hurricane story from Brian.

Oh, and there's Squeak.  Holy crap I'm in love.

But really, you're all here for the Innistrad previews, so that's what we're going to give you.  We look at every freakin' card we could find and discuss them.  We weigh in on the double-faced cards, the flavor, being Morbid, and the return of Flashback. You can check it all out here:

Then we try desperately to get through some of our emails, which is why this episode went so long.  There were some good ones though, so stick around!

Also, keep an eye out on the website for a few polls that have nothing to do with the show.  We're going to have you guys give us answers to a few questions just because.  There will be a new one every two days or so, so keep going back!
