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!

This episode is a little random.  We begin with a brief discussion of why not to buy cheap ice cream sandwiches.  I then offer up Mike's phone number in case anyone wants to call him.  Then we point out how we're not going to take money from our listeners, but gifts are appreciated when appropriate.

Of course, we have a main topic.  It's Mortal Instinct Fighter Calibur Vs 2 - 3D Alpha Forever!  Once again we use the Random Card button in Gatherer to draft up 16 fighters to go head to head (or claw, or tentacle, or stump, or whatever) for your enjoyment!  During the tournament you'll hear about vicious assistant birds, over-eager anti-assistant knights, and one contestant possibly passing a pearl to not be a dragon.  I didn't say it would make sense, I just said you'd hear it.  Who will join Troll Ascetic in our winner's circle?

And after the dust has settled, we have to bring back one of our favorite segments - Out of the Deck Box!  This time around we're taking a look at Brian's Archenemy Deck and the Scheme Deck that goes with it.  It's appropriately evil, and we hope you enjoy it!
