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 take a week off from MTG to talk about something else entirely - the Marvel Cinematic Universe! It's just a big fun discussion about how ridiculous it is that the MCU even exists, some of our favorite moments, and other topics of that sort. What's your favorite Stan Lee cameo? There will be spoilers for things released before last year, but nothing from WandaVision & The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.

Also Chewie will be making an announcement about an upcoming project that may or may not be related (it is totally related).

The dorks each create a School of Magic for the forthcoming TMP University of the Arcane! And as usual, each of us took the same idea and each took our own unique take on it. Brian created an entire university (misunderstanding the idea slightly), Dirk focused on flavor and mechanics, Mike honed in on the topics his school would teach, and Chewie prioritized his school's teaching methods and philosophies.

This one's a lot of fun and I can't wait to hear what everyone thinks! Which school will you join at the TMP University of the Arcane?

So incredibly sorry for the delay on this episode! Chewie had lots of real-life stuff come up so he couldn't actually get it all put together for a week.

The dorks (most of them anyway) are back to look at Commander 2021 since it has been revealed! Will this be yet another case of a handful of boring Commanders with the usual abilities that are some variation of "whenever you draw a card, draw a card"? Let's find out!

And you get to hear the bizarre tale of the theft of our Twitter account. That was frustrating and awful.

Also, PLEASE make sure your podcast app of choice is subscribed to the right RSS feed, because the Feedburner feed will soon stop updating with new episodes!
