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!

Here it is everyone! I've been working on the super-secret project for over FIVE MONTHS now, and it's finally time to reveal it to the world!  We're doing a Kickstarter to get capital to create all the merchandise we could ever want - sleeves and stickers with the TMP logo, t-shirts, and tokens and playmats with EXCELLENT new Jars art!  If you want the full details, just click the link right down there!  Thanks a lot to everyone for everything over these last 6 and a half years, I honestly hope that they were just the beginning!

On this episode, the dorks are taking a look at death in Magic.  Some of the planes we've visited over the years actually go into specifics about what happens when you die.  Ravnica, Theros, and Innistrad, for example, paint a fairly clear picture of the afterlife.  Most of the other planes mention it only casually or only bring it up as a way to justify reanimation spells.

But we're taking a look at all of them, whether it makes any sense or not.  We hope you enjoy the discussion, because it'll be the last one you get for a while since previews will start next episode!
