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!

I assure you this isn't a Monday Night Magic episode, even though we're essentially just hitting the news of the day. Seemingly out of nowhere last week Wizards of the Coast dumped all the news of next year's big products on our laps, including a first look at all the Standard sets and the first batch of Universes Beyond IP crossover products. The dorks take a look at all of it. You'll never guess who's the most jaded dork on the show!

Chewie is. You probably did guess that. But he's only jaded about WotC business practices, not Universes Beyond itself! No really!

The dorks take on a controversial topic that came up lately in the MTG world - cards and mechanics that only exist on Magic Arena. This conversation wanders all over the place, but we're primarily talking about the fact that these cards exist rather than looking at the cards themselves, because what they actually do matters a lot less than them being there in the first place.

After that, we do actually hit up the few Innistrad: Midnight Hunt previews that were shown just before we did the Just Chatting stream last week.

Since we haven't done an actual podcast episode in a couple weeks I decided to put the Just Chatting stream we did on July 29th up on the podcast feed to see what you all thought! There's a bit more swearing than you're used to (because it wasn't a podcast episode), and we went in with no plan whatsoever.

Topics include video games, Activision Blizzard's repulsive nonsense (though not in any detail, because ew), modern remakes of nostalgic cartoons, comedians, and ice cream! Let me know if this is a thing I should do in the future so the podcast feed doesn't just sit here empty!
