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 Mana Pool turned 14! We spend the first chunk of the episode looking back at where the world was, and where we were, waaaaay back in 2007. Turns out things were pretty okay back then.

After that we dive back into Crimson Vow just to see if we missed anything else. There was a whole other planeswalker that was revealed in an email the day we recorded the last episode!

Thank you all so much for all the support over these fourteen years! We love you all!

Most of the dorks are back to look again at Crimson Vow! We're looking at Chandra's new finery, because of course her name inspired the name of this episode. For the rest of the episode we're bouncing around the CIG, trying to find good stuff. We'll cover most of the Cemetery cycle, sexy vampires (like seriously though), cards that have mechanics related to dancing, the moose wolf bear, an old friend who has fallen to the dark side, and a surprise kraken horror.

Neverending Preview Season stays true to its name, and Crimson Vow is the next set to pop up. Since this was recorded on the first day of previews, we're explaining the mechanics and hitting as many cards as we can. We'll talk about how Cleave is a dumb name for a clever mechanic (possibly too clever), an artist that appears to have "borrowed" a cosplayer's likeness, and the importance of remembering your invitation.

Oh, and vampires. Lots of vampires. Even Dracula shows up a couple times.
