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 final hard look at Magic's Lord of the Rings set and continue to wonder at just how much effort went into what could have easily been a lazy cash grab.

The dorks dive back into more of the Universes Beyond Lord of the Rings set! Again we're focusing on the how the mechanics of the cards actually relate to the story and flavor of the books, and it is ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS!

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.
