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!

We're joined this episode by Bill, the voice of Squee, who haven't heard from in a good while.  We kick it off with a quick rules correction from last episode - Mike missed one small detail on the question about the single spell with Cascade, Storm, and Ripple.  Imagine that, something got missed in the most complicated spell ever.  No one is allowed to give Mike any crap about that one. All the others are fair game as usual though.

After that Chewie gives a quick rundown of all the podcast whoring he's been doing lately.  By lately we mean in the last couple months, because some of these took a while to show up.  He's been on Off-Color Cast, Kitchen Finks, Horde of Notions, and was one of the guys on the new Five Minutes of Magic cast that is, in fact, only five minutes long. He also had another video for CMDR Decks, his Spirit of the Night deck, which you can find right here:

By now everyone's heard the news that came out of PAX East, and if not you'll hear it for the first time right here!  There's the Return to Ravnica, Duels of the Planeswalkers 2013, and Nicol Bolas showing up in the M13 Core Set.  Holy crap that's a lotta news keeping us from the spoilers!  There's one last thing before the spoilers though, as Chewie gets all mushy and heartfelt for once in his miserable life to extend a special thanks to some listeners for their generosity.

Oh, and then there's a whole MESS of Avacyn Restored previews.  We've got angels, demons, devils, BOOM, pants-crapping, stunned silence, angry eyebrows, miracles, and Elmer Fudd.  It's gonna be great.
