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!

Happy Dorksgiving everyone! Before Thanksgiving, Brian invited us all over to his house to have a big meal and some Magic. He also invited our good friend (and Monday Night Magic cohost) Bill Bloodworth (Squee) to join us. During all that time, we wanted to do a new installment of our Commander Shenanigans series, which we do whenever a new Commander product is released. To keep it from becoming an extra-long monstrosity of an episode, and since there were five monocolored decks, we decided to play a game of Star. If you don't know what that is, don't worry - we explained it in the show.

Since the Dorksgiving portion of the show was not an extra-long monstrosity, it just didn't feel right. So we decided to put one of our Kickstarter backer rewards on here too! Two people took the "Send us a decklist and we'll play it" reward tier - Michael Serrahn and Rachel Franzen. Michael sent in a mono-white Avacyn, Angel of Hope equipment-based deck, and Rachel submitted her "hippy-dippy Trostani EDH deck". So Mike came over to Chewie's house and after a VERY long setup time (holy crap), we knocked out a few games as promised!
