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 begin this episode short one host, but don't worry about him.  He'll show up in the nick of time.  Brian gives us his take on last episode, throwing out ideas for Hellsing seen through the lens of Magic cards.  Then he and Chewie tell us about some of their experiences with the Return to Ravnica Booster Battle Packs, or whatever they're called.  But of course, that's not why any of you are here, is it?

Yes, we're going to hit each and every Gatecrash card that had been revealed when we recorded this.  And holy crap there were a lot of them.  From the first five that revealed the new guild mechanics all the way down to everyone's favorite planeswalker bro, we're taking a look at them all.  And be sure you stay tuned until the very end, because we have some information about playing Extort cards in EDH that came all the way from a high-level judge.
