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!

Of course this episode, the dorks that attended Prereleases are going to tell you how they did.  That's a given at this point, don't you think?

But we're throwing a curve at you this episode with the addition of an old friend.  Squanto is back this episode!  One of the founding members of The Mana Pool, Squanto has returned so you guys can get reacquainted with him before the livestream this weekend.  More on that later.

The real point of this episode is Black!  We're talking all about the flavor, mechanics, and general awesomeness of Black as a color in Magic.  Did you know that Black can justify almost anything in you either make them sacrifice some resource or make it a zombie?  Apparently you can!  You can learn all this and more this episode!

In other news, WE DID IT!  We broke the first goal of $10,000 on the Kickstarter!  Not only did we break it, but we broke it WHILE RECORDING!  So you guys get to hear me lose my mind in the middle of the show.  So now that we're good, let's shoot for stretch goals! We're no longer pushing so that you'll get stuff, you're guaranteed stuff now!  We're pushing to get everyone BETTER stuff!  The more people pledge, the better everything gets for everyone!

To help with the big push to the end, we're doing a livestream this weekend on Twitch!  Join me (Chewie), Mike, Cluze from MNM and Card Advantage, Scott (roommate and webmaster) and Squanto (as producer) on Saturday starting at 10am Eastern time and going until we're sick of it.  Join us for some Magic and lots of insanity!
