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, another live episode!  The dorks gathered at Dirk's house to hang out, play some Magic, and try to remember what each of us actually look like.  Oddly enough we look just like our cartoons on the website, only slightly less cartoony.  Hey, I said slightly!

We played a rousing game of Commander right off the bat, with some happenings that happened that were seriously awesome.  Okay, so I either don't want to spoil anything or I don't actually remember anything that happened.  I'll leave that up to your imagination.   Either way is fine.  It was a pretty good game though.

Then we took a short break and played a game of Horde Magic with the deck sent to us by a listener, Lou.  Of course, he built it for other more intricate reasons, but my incredibly well-prepared self had neglected to bring the rules he made up for the alternate format.  So we played a simple game of Horde Magic, treating all the */* Minion tokens as 2/2 zombies.  Then we played another one, treating them as having power and toughness equal to the number of them on the battlefield.  Both were fun games, and we hope you enjoy listening to them as much as we enjoyed playing them!
