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 are back with an episode, as the title says, inspired by some actual emails we got from actual listeners! Remember email? Wow!

So we're starting with a Story Circle! It's been a while, so the Story Circle is where we pick a legendary creature to be the Commander and go around in a circle one by one and add cards to the deck until we have a tiny skeleton that could be built upon. It's a feature we used to do a LOT until WotC's legendary creature design took a turn to cater to the Commander crowd, making many of them either too narrow or too broad for this exercise.

After that, we have a listener-submitted Magic Mad Lib! Thanks to Peter for sending us another fun one, this time based on our recent milestone episode. Yay!

And then we decided to give the Kamigawa stuff a miss until next year and do ANOTHER Story Circle! Ha!


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

The dorks return with a regular podcast episode! This week we're doing a Mythic Conscription, and the target is Torment! This was the first set that was heavily intentionally weighted towards one color, and at the expense of two others! How does that affect the rares and their possible Mythic-ness? Guess you'll have to listen to find out won't you?

Because of a potential lack of Brian, we decided to do a Just Chatting stream instead of a proper podcast episode this week. We talk about Skyrim being rereleased AGAIN, a particularly vicious bout of hiccups that had after effects, and then Brian shows up, and we spent a few minutes trying to figure out what was up with his computer. Then we went into beat 'em up games and X-Men games, followed by the Legend of Zelda cartoon. Mike tells us about the Immersive Van Gogh exhibit he saw, and from there somehow we end up on video ads. Then a brief discussion of how to pronounce omicron and booster shot stories. Then Chewie has some stories about a bug, DoorDash, and a video intro animation.
