The latest Limited Resources, posted here because MTGCast is full, and because Marshall is such a great guy that I finally got to meet. Also, Jon Loucks is SUPER dreamy!

We begin this episode by giving a quick rundown of the last EDH game that we played at Brian's house a few weekends ago. It was glorious, and terrible, and bizarre, and epic, and ridiculous. Yes, all those things. Consecutively or concurrently, it doesn't matter. Then we have to tell you all about the crazy first game we played that weekend. It was not an ordinary game of Magic, and it involved yet another of Brian's crazy inventions. I'm sure you guys will enjoy it though, I know we did.

On this episode, we end up talking a lot about Star Wars. Yeah, Disney bought LucasArts, or LucasFilm, or whatever the big thing is named and that's what kicked it all off, but we just went on about it for way too long. We're dorks, we can't help it. We also did another Magic Mad Lib, because they're entirely too much fun and we can't help ourselves.
Then we got into the meat of the episode. We each ranked the guild mechanics of Return to Ravnica in terms of multiplayer usefulness. Of course, as always happens when all 4 of us do something like this, we got VASTLY different results. I love it. So of course we have to discuss (argue) about each mechanic and why this one is better than that one. It's a good one as usual.

So here it is, the long-lost live episode of The Mana Pool! Well, not so much long-lost as recorded-and-not-needed. We recorded this way back in late June when Chewie, Mike, and Brian all got together to play some Magic. Dirk was all up in Denver and stuff at the time. So we played some Planechase, some EDH, maybe some other stuff? I don't know, we're all learning this together. There's never much to say with a live episode, so I hope you guys enjoy!
Also, don't forget that Chewie, along with his Monday Night Magic cohost Jack, will be at Grand Prix Charleston gunslinging! That's November 16, 17, and 18! Here's the link:
