Episode 1 – Cardshark and Lorwyn Standard

Welcome to the first episode of The Mana Pool!  I’m your host, Chewie, and I’m joined by a big group of dorks that consist of:

Brian – occasional writer for Cardshark
Dirk – greenest Magic player alive
Squanto – token n00b

In this episode, we roll over to Cardshark and explain how it works and why it’s great.  Then we hit many of the new Standard decks that have cropped up since Lorwyn became legal, including the decks that made Top 8 at Grand Prix Krakow.  Join us as we pick apart the new decks and pick on each other.

    You know, despite all your claims, this episode wasn’t actually that bad. It was just…incredibly generic, with none of the charm you guys have developed over the years you’ve been running.

    The Cardshark thing was understandable of course, but it feels a little…awkward. Hard to explain.

    And the tournament discussion would feel out of place these days. Or if you were looking at tournaments, it would probably be at the weird decks or how the top decks could be made casual.

    In other news, Cawgo would be great if it got turned into a living weapon kind of deck.
