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 dorks are joined by another Kickstarter backer this week, Stark Maximum! Stark has a thing for the flavor of the game, so he has two very Vorthosy topics for us to discuss! First, he wants to discuss everyone's favorite italicized words, flavor text! He and the dorks talk about some of their favorite flavor texts, touch on a few different kinds (flavors?) of flavor text, and discuss some of the characters who first made their mark on the game of Magic in italics.

From there, Stark steers us into a more general discussion about planeswalkers. But we're chatting about planeswalkers not as cards, but as actual characters. We poke around some of the story that surrounds some of the walkers, discuss the planeswalkers who, as Stark put it, have A story but don't fit into THE story. You know, stuff like that.

This episode was a fun one and we hope everyone enjoys! Let us know about your favorite flavor text and planeswalker as a character not as a card
