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!

We are joined this episode by Uriah Oxford, the progenitor of the CMDR Decks video series!  Why?  Because he's awesome!  And because we have the entirety of the Commander 2013 decks to talk about!  But first, there's a bit of other news to discuss.  Mike and Brian have to tell us about their latest foray into FNM, or Standard, or drafting, or whatever.  It was all of the above mixed together.  Then there's a new Duel Decks and Magic Online Vintage Masters.

After that, we're off into Commander previews!  We're taking a hard look at each of the decks, checking out both the new awesome cards and the old awesome cards in each one.  And there are some seriously awesome cards here.  I mean holy crap.  But that's pretty much it for the rest of the episode, so we hope you enjoy!
