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!

It's the first week of Fate Reforged previews, and none of us are completely with it. Seriously, we can't seem to get our words working properly. We're bad at this game.

As we usually do during the first week, we begin with the mechanics of the new set! So of course we spent a nice long time on Manifest, which is easily one of the most interesting Magic mechanics in recent memory, possibly ever. From the mechanics we move on to the rest of the Card Image Gallery and hit up every card that was listed there at the time!

Be prepared for lots of Back to the Future references this episode. Seriously, we refer to Khans as the beginning of the film's version of 1985, Fate Reforged as 1955, and Dragons as end of the film's 1985. If you haven't seen the first movie, I HIGHLY recommend you look it up. Not because of this episode, but because it's FREAKIN' AWESOME!
