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 return to the Kaldheim Card Image Gallery and continue poking around at the awesome stuff inside. There's a brand new Vampire Dragon (Dragon Vampire?) that makes Brian extremely happy. There's a whole new pantheon of Gods to discuss, a whole mess of weird creatures to fear, the Snow Figure of Destiny to freak out about, and a land that REALLY pisses off our old buddy Xenagos.

After not recording a show for a solid month the dorks are finally back! And we're taking a look at Kaldheim for the first time! We'll hit the mechanics first and then bounce around the Card Image Gallery talking about whatever new cards catch our eye! Planeswalkers, snow, gods, a legendary squirrel? What a weird set.

This was recorded six months ago on Dec 17, 2020. It was recorded on Chewie's old laptop because the dead computer. It was supposed to get posted a few days later, but then I was delayed because of putting the new computer together, and then getting bummed out, and then getting distracted, and then holidays, and and and. But here it is now!

Chewie tells the tale of December, that has focused all of its 2020 wrath on him at once. We reflect on the frustrations that come from watching our fellow humans not take the massive global pandemic seriously. We all share personal stories of what this horrible hell year has been like for us. We head into Magic territory to discuss what WotC has been up to this year and why that's got us all vaguely (or in one case, specifically) disillusioned with it. Then we turn to the current political landscape in the US, but luckily not for long. Then we look at what we would all like for 2021 to make it a better year for everyone.

Sorry for not getting this out in 2020, but crap happens and decided to happen to me. I hope you're all being safe in 2021 since this first week has been the longest 3 months ever.
