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 usual suspects are here, and they're dorks. We're taking another look at Murders at Karlov Manor! After going through the mythics we do our usual thing of bouncing around the set looking for cool stuff to talk about, and there's a LOT of cool stuff to talk about.

The game is afoot! The dorks are investigating The Murders at Karlov Manor for the first time! We'll be looking at all the usual suspects - the mechanics article and the card image gallery. The mechanics are especially neat this time around. We've got Morph+ and the bizarre lovechild of Quests & Sagas being my two high points. Let us know what you think of the new stuff!

And it's KARLOV Manor. Yeah, we know. Especially Brian.

This is it! The dorks are doing the final pre-Mythic expansion, Eventide, for Mythic Conscription! This was a fun one, as we have a lot of nostalgia for Eventide. There's also a really good discussion about swapping the power level for two hybrid cycles from the previous set. Be sure to let us know what you think!

This is really bizarre to say. We started Mythic Conscription waaaaay back in 2015. We are still going to do something with base/core sets, but absolutely not all of them. But as far as regular expansions go...we're done. It's so weird to not have a list of sets to fall back on.

The dorks kick off 2024 by...looking back at 2023! We're talking about stuff that happened in our lives over the last year. Things we did, places we went, games we played, mice we captured (wait what?), all that good stuff. Along the way we'll get distracted several times, as is our way, and tangent off into whatever other stuff captures our attention for a few minutes.

How was your 2023? However it was, hopefully your 2024 will be even better! Thanks for sticking with us and happy new year!
