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!

In this episode, we're going to veer off the usual beaten path a little bit.  First off, we have to talk some more about our last get-together at Dirk's house that was featured on the last episode.  Especially once we get to what happened after the last episode - Respawn Magic!  After we finished the Planechase game that you listened to, we shuffled up some decks and played one game of Magic that lasted for several hours!  Not the miserable kind of "this game's never gonna FREAKIN' END" several hours, but the "holy crap I can't believe this is still awesome" kind.  Find out who was the elephant, which unlikely decks lasted the longest, and which decks might not work so well in this format.

Of course, there's Infect.  At this point it's a little late, but don't worry, there's more coming.  Not next episode, but the one after that.

Then we have to reach into our massive mailbag.  Apparently 3 weeks worth of email tend to pile up when you don't get to any of it.  So this is our giant Listener Appreciation Week episode, where we touch on all the email we can find.  Since we read all these, we need some more, so send us an email!
