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!
Episode 85 - M10 Rules Update Discussion Hey there, all you Mana Pool listeners!  Brian here, subbing in for Chewie.  He worked 12 hours on the day that we recorded this episode, only to come home and run the recording less than 2 hours later, and he needed a bit of a break.  You’d never guess it from the episode, though, ‘cause we’re all firing on all cylinders for this one.  When I say "we", I don’t mean Dirk, because he’s not going to be with us for this episode and another or so due to computer death problems.  Never fear, as we’ve got a mystery guest host, whose identity is unknown for at least a minute or so into the episode. [Chewie note:  It's Bill, who is kurai_seraphim on the forums].

We cover quite a bit of ground here before we even get into the meaty, juicy topic that the episode covers.  We go over Cardshark member promotions for June, new members on the forums and Facebook [Chewie note:  International, baby!], and the usual routine.  Then, Chewie answers a challenge from the Avant-Card Show Podcast of the utmost importance - nudity is at stake!  No, Chewie will not be naked, we promise.  Maybe.  After that, Duels of the Planeswalkers release information is discussed.  Anybody got a spare $10 (and an Xbox 360)?

Then, we get into the main topic.  This was going to be the next installment in our ongoing multiplayer series, but Wizards forced us to change course with the publication of rules changes accompanying Magic 2010.  These changes are huge and will impact the way you play the game from now on, so love them or hate them, you’d best listen up.  Mulligans are like going to bed?  Creatures getting tired?  The end of Magic?  Tune in to find out what I’m talking about!
