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 143 - Alternate Multiplayer Formats Live!

On Game Day, we all gathered at Dirk's place to play some Magic!  And you are listening to the fruits of that labor.  We started off with a quick recap of the day's events thus far, then played a knock-down, drag-out game of Archenemy, featuring Brian's custom Archenemy deck and Scheme deck.  No I'm not going to tell you who won.  Really now, listen to the episode.  The ending was really freakin' epic though.

But that didn't take nearly as long as we thought it would, so as an added bonus we decided to play a game of Planechase.  That also ended in epic fashion, but only after a string of griefer planes tortured us for a while.  So what did you guys think?

Featuring a cameo by Dirk's lovely wife Chelsea!
