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 173 - Phyrexian Ramblings (and Mail Call)

Just so everyone is aware, we started off this episode short one Brian.  We spend the first half of the show going over our neglected listener emails, which we've been skipping over for the last several episodes.  Guess who answered the most rules questions that were emailed to us?  Bet you guessed wrong!

Luckily after all this we were able to find a Bryan to fill the void in our show, so that's excellent.  We talked about New Phyrexia and gave our general opinions about it, then stepped into a Story Circle with Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite.  You may or may not want to ignore one color that we added in.

After that, Dirk went to bed.  That means we had no one there to keep throwing out profound statements, so we lost our heads.  It just sort of degenerated into random conversations about whatever came to mind.  It happens.  Hope you guys enjoy!
