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 165 - Fumiko the Underperforming

Magic Mad Lib!  Mailbag!  The homogenization of American music!  A contest that's already over!  And From the Vault: Legends starring Lawrence Fishburne!  And all that is just the first half of this episode of The Mana Pool!  Why can't I stop screaming?!

Fishburne Legends right here:

The gang's all here for this episode, if you ignore Brian wandering away a few times in the middle and leaving a bit early.  So ignore that.  But the second half of the episode is devoted to a special EDH edition of Pimp My Deckbox!  Mike built a deck using Fumiko the Lowblood that looks pretty good on paper, but he's not terribly happy with how it's working out in practice.  So we're going to poke at it a bit and try to figure out what's missing.  He's got it on Tapped Out, so feel free to play along with us and send in your suggestions.  Check it out right here:

Intro Music - Diamond by Swift -
Break and End Music - Super Cranial Syphon (Super Metroid) by Armcannon -
Dirk's Rant Background Music - Wishmaster by Nightwish -

New website coming soon! -
