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!

Yup, it's preview time again!  We are returning to Ravnica in the next set, Ravnica.  Really?  Is that the best they could come up with?  Maybe the next time they do this we can just all it "Printing Money" or "Preying on Nostalgia".  Anyway, the Card Image Gallery is right here so you can follow along:

We also talked about the upcoming Duel Decks: Sorin vs. Tibalt.  Of course, that's basically all we know, so congratulations to us for covering that one so well.  Here's a link:

Also, the first Magic Player's Championship happened, and it sounded completely awesome.  The new World Champion was...huh?  Not the World Champion?  Player of the Year?  But that's decided by pro point accumulation throughout the year isn't it?  Not anymore?  Weird.  Anyway, it was Yuuya Watanabe, and here's the full coverage:

Also, Chewie is still going to the Escapist Expo in Durham next weekend (Sept 14-16).  If you're at all interested, here's a link to the Magic events that are happening all weekend:

And finally, Dirk has an important announcement, so don't leave until you get to the end!
