Chewie’s Johan CMDR Decks

103_johan

Hey look, it’s another CMDR Decks video!  I haven’t done one of these in forever!  Maybe even two forevers!  But Uriah (@CMDRDecks) was good enough to let me do this one to plug the Kickstarter as well as show off one of my favorite EDH decks!  It was originally conceived WAY back in Episode 219 during a Story Circle with guest host Bennie Smith (@blairwitchgreen), and I LOVED it!  I loved it SO MUCH that I tracked down a copy of Johan and set to work putting the deck together.

As usually happens when building a deck, new ideas came to mind and new cards popped into my head, so the version you see here isn’t straight from the Story Circle. Given my inability to procure new cards for the last little while, there are cards from the last couple blocks that would fit beautifully, but I haven’t managed to snag any of them just yet.  Feel free to throw any suggestions you want at me!

Listener-Created Movie Cards Part 2

MVV Woman in Red

You know, we dorks have talked about a lot of things on our show over the years.  Most of the time there’s positive feedback, words of appreciation, and the like.  But sometimes we do episodes that just resonate with people.  Episode 326 – At the Movies with The Mana Pool seems to be one of them, because people have sent us an entire mess of cards relating to it.

We spent that episode looking at some of our favorite movies and trying to figure out what kind of cards we could get out of them.  Some of our listeners decided to help us out by sending in some of their created cards.  Keep in mind that some of these are word-for-word what we came up with on the show, while others were designed more by the card’s creator.  I’m not sure which is which, that’s what the link to the episode up above is for!

Mark van Velzen sent us an amazing 54 cards (holy crap!) like the Woman in Red over there on the right.  But you’re not reading this, you’re looking at her anyway aren’t you?

This is the second and final part of these cards.  You should check out Part 1 if you haven’t yet, it has the cards for Jurassic Park, The Matrix, Fight Club, and a pair of iconic horror movie bad guys!

Mark van Velzen sent us an amazing 54 cards (holy crap!) like Vigo over there on the right.  We are, in fact, like the buzzing of flies to him.

I’ve organized them a bit and put them here for all to see, hope everyone enjoys as much as I did!

Whazzap! – The Mana Pool Edition!

Whazzap!

Here it is, the first video for The Mana Pool’s new YouTube channel! This is more of a proof-of-concept than actual content, giving me a chance to brush up on my image editing and learning to use video editing software. I’m confident now that I can do this for real videos with quality results.
