Episode 174 – Streets of Double Ransom: Championship Edition HD

Jace, the Mind SculptorWelcome to a very special episode of The Mana Pool, featuring a brand new guest host – Ralph the Guest Hosting Cricket!  He’s a new addition to the show, and hopefully he’ll be EATEN BY A F@#$ING GECKO soon.  Other than that, we’ve got a whole host of fun stuff to go over.

There’s an exceptionally long listener Mad Lib to do first.  Then we’ve got a small rant about some EDH/Commander at a local card shop.  Then there’s an entirely different small rant about the supposed balance of Duel Decks: Knights vs. Dragons. We couldn’t find it! Continue reading »

Episode 152 – Mortal Instinct Fighter Calibur Vs 2 – 3D Alpha Forever

This episode is a little random.  We begin with a brief discussion of why not to buy cheap ice cream sandwiches.  I then offer up Mike’s phone number in case anyone wants to call him.  Then we point out how we’re not going to take money from our listeners, but gifts are appreciated when appropriate.

 

Of course, we have a main topic.  It’s Mortal Instinct Fighter Calibur Vs 2 – 3D Alpha Forever!  Once again we use the Random Card button in Gatherer to draft up 16 fighters to go head to head (or claw, or tentacle, or stump, or whatever) for your enjoyment!  During the tournament you’ll hear about vicious assistant birds, over-eager anti-assistant knights, and one contestant possibly passing a pearl to not be a dragon.  I didn’t say it would make sense, I just said you’d hear it.  Who will join Troll Ascetic in our winner’s circle?

 

And after the dust has settled, we have to bring back one of our favorite segments – Out of the Deck Box!  This time around we’re taking a look at Brian’s Archenemy Deck and the Scheme Deck that goes with it.  It’s appropriately evil, and we hope you enjoy it!

Episode 129 – Mortal Instinct Fighter Calibur Vs!

Welcome to this much-delayed episode of The Mana Pool!  Chewie here, and I’d just like to say sorry about that.  If this one wasn’t worth the wait, the next episode should make up for it.  Trust me on this one.  But first, this episode!  We start off with some random stuff, and here are the links that go with those things!

Chuck & Beans strip about Magic, sort of

StarCity’s coverage of the StarCityGames Open: Atlanta

Then we go back to a segment we started a short while ago, the Story Circle!  We have two Story Circles this time around, one that Mike started and one that I started.  These are definitely way out there, so we hope you enjoy them.  And don’t mind the Aven Riftwatcher in the second one, they just wouldn’t let me take it out.  For the full listing, check the forum thread for this episode, the link is down there at the bottom of these show notes.

Then it’s time for another of Brian’s creative segments.  I give you – Mortal Instinct Fighter Calibur Vs!  Through painstaking research and hours of meeting arduous criteria, Brian has assembled 16 creatures from Magic’s history to meet in mortal…instinct…um…fighter calibur vs?  Yeah.  Anyway, we go through the entire bracket, pitting creature against creature, victor against victor until only one remains!

I’d like to issue a special thank you to the announcers from the World Warrior and Killer Instinct tournaments for helping us out this episode.  And a big SCREW YOU to Shao Kahn for being such a douche.
