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!

The dorks are here to discuss Announcement Day and our reactions to all the news that came out of it. Warning: some of these reactions might surprise you. They sure surprised me!

After that it's time to jump onto Battlebond previews! There's a lot of really neat stuff going on here. The mechanics are neat, the new cards are awesome, and the reprints are absolutely bonkers. Plus we get to explore a new relationship between an angel and a demon and make fun of Vince Russo. Everyone wins! 

As you might be able to tell from the title, we had some technical difficulties this week as Discord gave us our first ever hiccup! At least, as far as I can remember it's the first problem we've had with it. Still better than Skype!

Rest in peace John Bain, you will be missed.
