The Mana Pool

Chewie, Mike, Brian, and Dirk have been talking about Magic: The Gathering on the internet for almost 10 years (at the time of this writing). Since there are so many shows about strategy and tournaments, these dorks focus on all the fun you can have with the game outside of that, from flavor to philosophy to game design to history to whatever else we can come up with. We're funny, we're serious about what we do, and we love it!

Episode 456 - Ultimate Kombat Smashy Smashy Face Punch Konflict F4rce


This episode is a truly strange one. Brian's not here, he got sick and died since I saw him the previous night. We have a sponsor this week, Easy Roller Dice Co. We grabbed Cap from Lair of Lore to join us. We've got a truly epic listener-submitted...

Episode 455 - Cosmic Larva For President


Woo! Cosmic Larva in 2020! It's got to be better than the Desecration Elemental, right? Guys? In this episode we're finishing off our look at Modern Masters 2017! The whole set looks like a lot of fun to draft. There are a few more rarity shifts to...

Episode 454 - This Set Is Insane!


No really. Have you seen the cards in Modern Masters 2017? It's completely bonkers. They've pulled out all the stops with this one, presumably to make up for the last two Masters sets. We're just diving right in and looking at all the stuff that has...

Episode 453 - The Lich's Tome


Not sure why we're talking about television shows at the beginning. We're just weird. We begin the actual show by thinking about some things that may or may not (and also almost certainly won't) be in Modern Masters 2017. It turns out Dirk might be a...

Episode 452 - Partnering Up


This episode begins with an extremely quick Sam Quiz followed by another user-submitted Magic Mad Lib from lvl99luck. Little did he know that it would play into our episode's theme! We didn't know that either! It's an amazing coincidence! Buy lottery...

Episode 451 - Someone To Midnight Ritual With


It's time for a new episode of The Mana Pool! We've got a brand new Magic Mad Lib, except this one was written by Chewie for the first time ever! Be afraid, it's based on some of his recent experiences. After that we're doing a Mythic Conscription of...

Episode 450 - We Have Returned! (MTG RPG)


It is time! Karim, Alaric, and The Angel are back to track down the mysteries of Trivester! Not because we want to, but because we can't freakin' leave the plane and we'd really rather be somewhere else. Plus apparently the dice have decided that...

Episode 449 - Aether Revolt Prerelease Reports


It's Aether Revolt prerelease time! Since we all went to different prereleases, there were no field recordings this time. But don't worry, we did grab the one and only Chris Lansdell to join us, since he did 3x as many prereleases as the rest of the...

Episode 448 - Howard of Anguish


We've got to talk about the big news first, of course. There were cards banned in Standard for the first time since 2011. This is big. Like really big. But after that we're back to more Aether Revolt! Yay new cards! And poor, poor Howard. I feel for...

Episode 447 - What a Revolting Development


We're back for a new year and a new set! Of course Aether Revolt previews are going on, so that's what we're focusing on this episode! After a heartfelt talk from Chewie about his recent charity stream and depression and stuff that is. We've got...
