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!

Remember Commander Shenanigans 2? It was episode 303. Later that day, we recorded another episode. This is it. For some reason, when we record one live episode it records through the USB mic, which is why CS2 sounded good. When we record a second one, it defaults to the built-in laptop mic. That happened here, and we didn't catch it. This episode is a few days late because I decided to try to make it sound better, because it really sounded like crap. Sorry about that, but hopefully you'll think it was worth the wait.

Since there were five of us (the usual four dorks and Brian's buddy Jon Raymer), we decided to play a game of Assassin, since it is easily one of Chewie's favorite game types ever.  This episode is actually a really good way to learn that everyone plays the game differently, as evidenced by some of our reactions to the way Jon started the game (really Chewie was just irritiable at having his Titan killed).

After the Assassin game, Dirk had to leave.  The rest of us took advantage of having time left at the end of the first game to play a "lightning round".  We all grabbed EDH decks that would lead to relatively quick games and played.  It turns out it wasn't quite a "lightning" fast game, but it was still quicker than our usual games.  Hope you guys enjoy!
