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 been a long time since the four of us actually recorded an episode, so we've got a lot of ground to cover on this one.  First off, we have to apologize for the sound quality of the last episode.  And we know we screwed up how Vorel of the Hull Clade works.  Our bad.  We're allowed one major screw up every couple years, right?  Then Mike tells us about some drafting he's been doing.  After that there's a mess of news type stuff (the links are down there a little further of course).  Then we sorta screw around a bit, sharing some random non-Magic nonsense until the musical break.

After that, it's time for the good stuff.  As if you didn't know from the ridiculous title, this episode continues the Old vs. New: Ravnica Guilds with the Gruul Clans!  The discussions here were really good, and this might be our all-around closest Guild OVN yet.  Holy crap. 

No really, this was a great one.  Hope you guys enjoy!
