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 174 - Streets of Double Ransom: Championship Edition HD

Welcome to a very special episode of The Mana Pool, featuring a brand new guest host - Ralph the Guest Hosting Cricket!  He's a new addition to the show, and hopefully he'll be EATEN BY A F@#$ING GECKO soon.  Other than that, we've got a whole host of fun stuff to go over.

There's an exceptionally long listener Mad Lib to do first.  Then we've got a small rant about some EDH/Commander at a local card shop.  Then there's an entirely different small rant about the supposed balance of Duel Decks: Knights vs. Dragons. We couldn't find it! 

Then there's the main topic, which is another edition of the Mortal Guilty Edge Fighter Champion Tag Shodown, or whatever the hell it's called.  As always, this was entirely too much fun.  Spoiler alert: At least this time a green rare didn't win! 

And finally, we're going to throw out our own unique perspectives on the Ban Jace nonsense, as some guys who only sort of play Standard and have no personal stake in the debate either way.  I get the feeling this part will get us the most response.  Let us know what you guys think!
