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 177 - Lots of Actual Content!

That's right, we've got a stupid amount of content for you on this episode of The Mana Pool!  First off, Brian's unable to join us until later, so we have a special guest host - Tosus!  You might remember him from the excellent custom cards posted on our Facebook page during our last big contest, or perhaps you remember that he's the guy who made the intro you hear on this episode.  Either way, here he is joining us for an episode while he's in the USA.

Right, content!  First off, I have to recount meeting Ben and Tosus in person last weekend, and how neither of them could stand up to my mighty Progenitus EDH deck.  So what if they stomped me every other game?

Then Mike tells us all about his experience at the SCG Open in Charlotte NC.  Since Brian wasn't with us to ramble on forever, Mike took care of it for him.  There was a rules update too, and Mike explains a couple of the interesting things that came out of that.  Then we have to give a bit of opinion about the New Phyrexia leak and the Guillaumes that caused it.  Oh look, there's Brian!

There's a short break followed by a big announcement for next episode, be sure to listen carefully!  Then Brian tells us all about his SCG Open weekend.  And finally, we're able to get to the New Phyrexia cards. We take a look at all the cards with Phyrexian Mana in their costs, so check it out to see what we think.  Then...we ran out of time, so we picked out a couple other quick ones and called it a night.  See?  Very little nonsense this episode!
