Episode 196 – Innistrad Previews with Some Limey

Innistrad Expansion SymbolWelcome to another episode of The Mana Pool!  This time around we’re joined again by Chris Lansdell, that limey podcast whore that you know from many other podcasts, most notably Horde of Notions and The Great Debate.  If you haven’t listened to those, what’s wrong with you?

We kick off the festivities with a discussion about the newly-revealed (at the time) Planeswalker Points system.  This is the new rating system that’s going to replace the old DCI rating.  Thank goodness.  You can read all about it here:

We then take a few minutes to check out what happened at Pro Tour Philadelphia, which was the first official Modern tournament.  It made me happy to see a relatively healthy format after the first attempt, even though I have no interest in playing myself.  We discussed the decks that made the Top 8, which you can see here:

And then of course we have to talk about all the wondrous and crazy Innistrad previews that have shown up since our last recording session.  And there are some pretty good ones, as always.  You can find them all here:

    I’m sure you already know, but I’m listening to the show now and for the sake of making sure, Chewie, you are having the same audio problems as episode 191.
    Still a great episode as always :), but just sayin.

      Yeah dude, didn’t you hear my quick little apology just after the record scratch? Luckily, it doesn’t last the entire episode.

        Well, I’m an idiot. I just got to the apology now. Ignore my silliness, I shall finish listening to the ep :)

          Hold on. I was doing it before the apology that was just after the record scratch? Son of a whore. I wonder why…

    I will mess myself when somebody in my playing group is going to cast Army of the Damned and I cast Gather Specimens in response. That is going to be awesome.

    Also more Chris. He tickles my british bone.
