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!

We are sadly without Brian this time around, but that's only because a) it's his wife's birthday (at least I'm pretty sure that's the excuse he used) and b) Skype absolutely would not let us record the night before.  It was completely weird.  I think it's plotting against us.  But of course it worked the next night, giving you this episode right here!  Yay!

We spent a little longer than anyone probably should have on the Magic 2013 Intro Pack decklists (since we sorta ran out of time last week).  Then we had to go into great detail about our Prerelease experiences!  Mike tells us all about his mediocre black and white deck (it appears lots of people were playing his deck just with better cards).  Then Chewie goes into all the smack he laid down with his blue and red deck.  Seriously, ALL the smack.

Then we dive into our neverending mailbag to point out a few interesting things to you listeners.  Here are a few of those things now!
