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!

Yes, we are without Dirk this episode.  He's not joining us on the show while on a cruise, that would be ridiculous.  But we kick off the festivities with another Magic Mad Lib from Brian, our first in quite some time.  It's a long one, and it turns out to be pretty damn funny.

Of course, that's not all.  We had a lot of announcements from the San Diego Comic Con that we just had to give you our opinions on (you know, like everyone else has been doing).  It's about Return to Ravnica, the RTR prerelease, From the Vault: Realms, and something called Commander's Arsenal.  I think I'll just call that Commander's Arse from now on.  Anyway, if you'd like to follow along you can read it all here:

Of course, we also have to tell you all about how we did at the Magic 2013 Launch, which no longer exists.  But Lucky decided to do one anyway, so Mike, Brian, and Chewie rolled out to play.  Remember from last episode how well Chewie did at the Prerelease?  Think he can repeat it?  Better listen to find out.
