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 plane of Trivester for another installment of the MTG RPG! Yes, that is still a thing. We haven't forgotten. We'll NEVER forget! Alaric, Karim, and the Angel head into the mysterious Tower of Icolnir in an effort to figure out what's happened to its planeswalker owner. What sort of traps will they get caught in? Is Syr to be trusted? Should they open the mysterious giant door?

Happy new year to all of our beloved pooligans! We hope your 2024 is even better than your 2023!

Stick around to the very end to find out some big plans Chewie has going for the beginning of next year!

The dorks take a look at all the Jurassic Park cards first, because who doesn't love those movies? Well, the first couple anyway. Then we dive into the Lost Caverns of Ixalan and take a look at the new Gods and whatever else catches our eye. What do you think of the new stuff?

The dorks are taking a page from MNM this week and covering a variety of Magic topics. Marvel throwing its hat into the Universes Beyond ring, the first Fallout cards, Lost Caverns of Ixalan's mechanics, and WotC's latest way to jack up the prices are all in our sights, so be sure to let us know what you think about any or all of it!

They say there's No Plane Like Home (well, we do) but what about the one known as the Homelands? That's right, we're taking a look at Ulgrotha, that place where Baron Sengir hangs out! It's a plane that hasn't been thought about in a VERY long time except for a few fan service mentions in a Commander set and a (very) small bit in the New Phyrexian Invasion. We'll take a look at the place and see what we think about moving in.

And then we'll finally Brian's Magic Mad Lib that has been burning a hole in his pocket since he wrote it. Yay!

The dorks get together to chat about assorted nonsense! This time around we're talking about a lot of stuff that almost certainly won't age well, but that's okay. Here's what's on the docket:

Donald Trump is a terrible defendant
Doctor Who Mechanics - https://magic.wizards.com/en/news/feature/magic-the-gathering-doctor-who-mechanics
Falling off of the constant stream of Star Wars & Marvel shows
What we've been playing lately

The dorks are all here, and we're taking a look at the near future of Magic! What that really means is we're looking back at the Magic 30 panel that WotC did at GenCon! They announced the next two years' worth of major Magic releases, so we have a LOT of stuff to talk about!

Never mind the various technical difficulties that plagued this episode. Nothing to see here.

The dorks have returned! We're taking our first look at Wilds of Eldraine now that we're all back! We're starting with the mechanics as usual before moving into the new-and-improved-and-obnoxious Card Image Gallery. As always, there's a lot of neat stuff going on in here!

The Mythic Conscriptions must continue! We're almost done! To that end, we're tackling Morningtide, which was the very first new set that came out after we started this show! There's a LOT of nostalgia going on here, but are there any cards that could have been Mythics? As always, let us know what cards you think fit the bill!

The dorks dive into the first full Universes Beyond set, Lord of the Rings: Tales of Middle-Earth. As usual we'll go over the mechanics before diving into the card image gallery to poke around and see what we can see. We'll be focusing on the flavor as it relates to the books, because we know them well and LOVE what the designers have done with some of these cards! How do you think they did?
 
There is a tangent where we have to talk about the backlash to Black Aragorn. Oh yeah, we're going full woke. If Aragorn being black on cards bothers you, just ask yourself why. And be honest.

The dorks give Lorwyn the Mythic Conscription treatment! Lorwyn was the set that was current waaaaay back when we started The Mana Pool, so it's just dripping with nostalgia for us. We have tales about several of these cards and openly admit that it's impossible for us to be neutral about them. And there are the Commands, the Incarnations, and so much other stuff!
 
And yes, the planeswalkers were a given.

And we've got Squee here with us this week to remind us of the Dungeons & Dragons Open Gaming License shenanigans from just a few months ago. And because we missed him of course.

And we'll laugh at some of the ways the Phyrexians got slapped down of course. Let us know what you think of the set!

We'll even explain everything about the brand new card type! Then we'll bounce around the card image gallery as usual, picking out stuff that catches our eyes.

The dorks dive into a long discussion about the pros and cons of expanding a game. Board game expansions, video game expansions, downloadable content, all that stuff. How old is the idea of adding onto a game? What are some of the firsts in various categories of expansions? We'll tackle all this and a lot more in this episode. It was a lot of fun and we hope you enjoy it as much as we did!

The dorks dive into the first look at the Lord of the Rings set! As Tolkien fans we range from "very much" to "insanely huge" so we're looking hard at the cards that were revealed as Magic cards but more importantly, as Middle Earth lore! If you've ever been curious about the inner workings of Tolkien or if you just enjoy listening to nerds nerd out then this episode will be great!

The dorks called a last-minute audible and did a Dorks Just Chatting episode. We ended up hitting on video games without combat early and just stayed there pretty much the whole time. What are your favorite nonviolent video games?

The dorks dive into one of the most complicated sets of Magic ever made, Future Sight, and give it the Mythic Conscription treatment. Does this set work through this particular lens? Which dorks will almost come to blows over this discussion? Will the Goyf goyf the dorks? These answers and more are answered in this episode!

The dorks take a look at the recent preview of March of the Machine and all the crazy stuff contained therein. What happens when you put a vampire on a dinosaur? Who's that riding the frog monster? Why is Chandra crying? Are those giant Phyrexian murder tentacles? We'll attempt to answer all of these questions on this episode!

The dorks got together to discuss a horrible illness, prerelease experiences, breaking away from a game you've played a long time, and video games in general!
 
Sorry this was so late, I've been going through a lot in the last couple weeks besides just the sickness.

The dorks return for another look at Phyrexia: All Will Be One! Well, most of us. Apparently compleation wasn't good for poor Brian. But even without him guiding us along, we go through a mess of new cards and have fun goofing off in between them in true TMP fashion.

Hey look, the dorks are back for 2023! And we're starting off the year by leaning into Neverending Preview Season and taking our first look at Phyrexia: All Will Be One. Who's getting compleated by the MTG Borg? You probably know already! But listen anyway because we're checking out the mechanics and then hitting the card image gallery.

Here's to 2023 being better than the last one!
