Episode 326 – At the Movies with The Mana Pool

At the Movies

The dorks begin this episode by telling you all about how awesome Conspiracy draft is.  And it is.  Like a lot.  Seriously, go do some Conspiracy drafting, it’s SO much fun!

But after that, we decided to do something silly.  We’ve done it before with video games and again with television shows, so it’s time we do it again.  We’re taking a look at movies and imagining what kinds of Magic cards we could get out of them.  With everything from Wizard of Oz to the Princess Bride to slasher movies to action movies, we’re covering a lot of stuff.  And we’re even staying away from most of the really obvious fantasy franchises like Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter and the like, just to make it more interesting.  Let us know what we missed!

    The Denace the Menace quote is something like “except sunday mornings. That is when i think they take of their shirts and wrestle.”

    Just thought of what to do with the Jason card. (2)(B) Destroy target creature and destroy a creature soulbonded or bestowed on target creature.

      That’s exactly what I was thinking! Rules-wise, bestow would be difficult to distinguish from a regular aura, but soulbond is great.

    Fun episode, guys. I actually dug up my old doc of made-up Magic cards and I found that I did a series of movie heroes and villains. Hannibal Lecter has devour (with the caveat that he could only devour non-artifact creatures); Atticus Finch has defender and prevents lethal damage; Michael Corleone has an ability that destroys all other creatures except him at the end of every turn; Agent Smith puts an Agent Smith token into play every time he kills a creature.

    I’m pretty sure Miracle Max has “Tap: Regenerate target creature” to represent the mostly-deadness.
