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!

It's time once again for us to dig into our mailbag and come up with something to talk about!  This time we hit on an email about podcasting hardware and software because we seem to have gotten a lot of those lately.  How many of you are starting a podcast anyway?

Then we hit an email that asks about our card preference.  When building a deck, which version of any given card do we like to use?  A certain art, foil, promotional, non-English language, white or black border...what do we prefer?  We spent a good amount of time discussing the various ins and outs of how we pick cards to put in a deck.

From there we get to an email about power creep.  Sorta.  Basically it's the "creatures today are so good and spells are not compared to back in the day - discuss".  And we did.  For a long time.  We threw out lots and lots of points.  We're pretty sure it's worth listening to, so there's that. 

Of course, expect the usual tangents, sidetracks, and random nonsense that you've come to know and love from our show.  Hopefully I didn't forget anything...
