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!

After not recording for a staggering 2 weeks in a row, the dorks are back! We've got a very cheeky Sam Quiz to kick off the whole thing, because what's a better way to get back into the groove?

After that, we're all-in on Core Set 2019 previews! After 3 years without a Core Set, Magic has decided that it's a necessity. So they've changed the way they build these sets, with beginner-friendly cards at common & uncommon and laser-focused answers and super-neat cards at rare & mythic!

Captain Sniffles rides again! And the Beardy Man has completely forgotten how Magic cards work! Will our heroes get through the episode without incident? You'll just have to listen to find out!
