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!

Welcome to the first episode of The Mana Pool!  I'm your host, Chewie, and I'm joined by a big group of dorks that consist of:

Brian - occasional writer for Cardshark
Dirk - greenest Magic player alive
Squanto - token n00b



In this episode, we roll over to Cardshark and explain how it works and why it's great.  Then we hit many of the new Standard decks that have cropped up since Lorwyn became legal, including the decks that made Top 8 at Grand Prix Krakow.  Join us as we pick apart the new decks and pick on each other.
