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!

This episode marks the first of the Mana Pool Creature Awards!  We covered our first few categories here, including Best and Worst Dressed Humanoids and Not-At-All-Humanoids (see image for Worst-Dressed Humanoid nominees), Best Use of Scale Birds, Best Art on a Bad Creature, and Most Disturbing Depiction of a Creature.  Stay tuned to a future episode for the rest of the categories!

Oh, right. Planechase. The entire decklists were revealed and all that, so we had to check those out too.  All four of these decks look like serious fun, and the Planes and Phenomena (doot dooooo doo-doo-doo) are seriously ridiculous.  Like damn.

Planechase Decklists:


Intro & Outro Music – Diamond by Swift –
Break Music – Thriller by Michael Jackson (creepy voice provided by Vincent Price)
