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!

Hey look, we're doing another Commander episode!  Told you we weren't done with these, what now haters?  Or whatever.  Gimme a break, I never know how to start off these episode write-ups.  But we are focusing on Commander again this week, and of course we've got a guest host.  We managed to snag none other than Tom of the now-defunct MTG Radio podcast.   That show is the main reason Chewie decided to give EDH a try back in the day!

We begin with a discussion of competitive EDH that came from a listener email, then move over to the Commander's Arse(nal).  Everyone has their opinion on the product thus far.  Except for Mike, since we were apparently not listening to what he said.  He said stuff though, he assures us!

Commander's Arsenal:

Then we decided to bring back the old Story Circle.  Aw yeah, you know you love it!  Our random general this time around was...Cromat.  Yeah, but we made the best out of it.  If you want to follow along or at least see what these cards are as we rattle them off, you can check out the post here:

Tom is @MTGRadio on Twitter by the way - you know what to do.
