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 this much-delayed episode of The Mana Pool!  Chewie here, and I'd just like to say sorry about that.  If this one wasn't worth the wait, the next episode should make up for it.  Trust me on this one.  But first, this episode!  We start off with some random stuff, and here are the links that go with those things!

Chuck & Beans strip about Magic, sort of

StarCity's coverage of the StarCityGames Open: Atlanta

Then we go back to a segment we started a short while ago, the Story Circle!  We have two Story Circles this time around, one that Mike started and one that I started.  These are definitely way out there, so we hope you enjoy them.  And don't mind the Aven Riftwatcher in the second one, they just wouldn't let me take it out.  For the full listing, check the forum thread for this episode, the link is down there at the bottom of these show notes.

Then it's time for another of Brian's creative segments.  I give you - Mortal Instinct Fighter Calibur Vs!  Through painstaking research and hours of meeting arduous criteria, Brian has assembled 16 creatures from Magic's history to meet in calibur vs?  Yeah.  Anyway, we go through the entire bracket, pitting creature against creature, victor against victor until only one remains!

I'd like to issue a special thank you to the announcers from the World Warrior and Killer Instinct tournaments for helping us out this episode.  And a big SCREW YOU to Shao Kahn for being such a douche.
