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!

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.

Mad Lib!  Your filth has freed us!

Then we come to the good part.  There were some SERIOUS internet connection issues going on here.  We invited our old friend Professor J onto the show!  TheJaceKid.  Jace.  Javier.  He's almost on par with Eric here, holy crap!  The problems were pretty bad, but we soldiered through to give you a big discussion about the color Red in multiplayer.  We touched on lots of the big things Red can do, and why that does or does not work in multiplayer.  Of course, the discussion is a bit fragmented due to the constant dropoffs, but I think it's still good.  Be sure to follow Professor J on Twitter @JacevBeleren
