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!

Since Standard rotated with Throne of Eldraine that means Brawl rotated too! And our own rambling dork Brian is ALL ABOUT some Brawl, so he wanted to do an episode about it! So we're gonna hit what left Standard and what that means for Brawl, with Brian's decks as an example. There's a good amount of discussion with the live Twitch chat too, which is why you should come join us live on Thursday nights!

If you have any Brawl plans in the new post-rotation format, let us know!


Come join us in the future! The show is live on Thursdays around 8pm(ish) Eastern time on Twitch!

The dorks are back from a two week podcasting break, and we're coming out firing! We're giving the Mythic Conscription treatment to a notoriously overpowered set, Urza's Saga! In this discussion we'll point out the difference between powerful cards and, well, design mistakes. Which color is loaded with potential mythics? Which color just doesn't seem to have much for the discussion? And what about Tolarian Academy?

It's Prerelease time again! Chewie, Mike, Brian, and Sam (!) all went to House of Cards in Winston-Salem NC to play! First, Chewie tells the story of the weekend of Scott's wedding and the horrible, horrible sunburn while he & Mike are in the car on the way to the shop. We didn't get any pre-tournament recordings with Brian & Sam because they were playing a game of Brawl.

Once the tournament begins you'll get to hear from us all between rounds as we discuss how the games went. Which dork will be undefeated? Which dork couldn't win even if his opponent left halfway through the round? I guess you'll just have to listen!
