Episode 208 – Like for Bullets

Sorceror's Strongbox - Ammo BoxThis episode is a little out there.  First off, we’re missing Dirk because it’s his anniversary.  Because not just anyone can fill in for Dirk, we tracked down two old friends to help us out.  First we got Bill, who is kurai_seraphim on the forums and a recent guest host.  Then we tracked down Ben, who is @Panahinuva on the forums, Twitter, and probably everywhere else.

We start off with a couple of listener-submitted Mad Libs, one from Jose Lorenzo de Jesus and one from Austin Abel.  Yeah I know we’ve done the first one before, shut up.  They’re fun.  After that, it’s time for a Story Circle.  But not just any Story Circle, this is a holiday special!  We’re taking a look at the various holiday special promo cards that Wizards has released the last few years, then we’re gonna concoct a Story Circle around one of them!  Trust me, it turned out great.

After that, things got a little unfocused.  We talked about some of the things that are coming up in the near future on TheManaPool.com and discussed our upcoming trip to the SCG Open Invitational in Charlotte.  Just a reminder, Mike’s taking on all comers with his High Tide Eldrazi Archenemy deck!  Then we turned our attention to some listener mail and assorted ramblings.  Hope you enjoy!

    The streets run red with Landsdell’s Blood!

    But man, you guys just lost focus, which is GREAT!

    And could you at least email me the deck list for that holiday deck featuring Measure of Wickedness? I’d be very very grateful.

        When you guys lose focus, it’s almost like a guessing game to see just where your tangents will land. Perhaps I should turn it into a drinking game.

    Evacuation Punch!

    I might have yelled ‘Leveler! Leveler!’ in the Story Circle. I do miss the old times when it was in order and you took turns naming cards, that made it much easier to follow.
