Episode 336 – The Sam Quiz & The Hate Seed

Ulasht, the Hate Seed

This episode begins with a surprise quiz from Brian’s daughter Sam, which we all…failed.  But it’s great.  D’awww.

Of course, we had to talk about all the reveals from gamescom!  New Khans cards and mechanics, plenty of nifty artwork, and a Commander 2014 card are all there for us to talk about.  From there we went to the fully revealed Duel Decks: Speed vs. Cunning decklists and discussed for a while.

After a short break, we decided to do a requested Story Circle.  Never mind that it was requested a LONG time ago, that’s not important right now.  What is important, is that we’re finally going to take on…The Hate Seed!

Episode 335 – Drawing with All the Colors

Ancestral Dork Recall

On this episode, the dorks are taking a look at card draw across the different colors of Magic.  Card draw is a big and important thing in the game, so we’re outlining how each color gets to do it.  Or, in the case of white, doesn’t do it.  From card draw we move into the various forms of card selection, from Scry and Brainstorm to tutoring.

It turns out this topic was pretty broad, and in fact it was probably a little too broad for the show.  So after stumbling around for a while we decided to just call it.  The final thoughts get a little deep on this one, but you should listen to them.  They’re important.  And you should really consider reading Jack’s article.

Episode 334 – Gods Be Praised! (or Not)

Gods

Just be glad I didn’t name this episode ZOMG.  First up, after a long hiatus we’ve got a new Magic Mad Lib from Brian!  Yay!  Look up The Brute by the way, it’s really weird.

Then we delve deep into our main topic – the Gods of Theros!  Now that we’ve had a chance to play with them and see how they’ve done in the tournament world, we decided to revisit them.  We’re taking a look at what they do, how we like them, what you could do with them casually, their place in the Theros story, and their Greek pantheon equivalents.  It’s a lot of fun and it’s very long, so we hope you enjoy!

I had to actually do some editing this episode, so keep on eye on TheManaPool.com for the outtakes in the coming days!

Episode 333 – The Comic-Con One

Bear Puncher

This epic-length episode is brought to you by the San Diego Comic-Con MTG panel and by Modern PTQs.

We had so much stuff to talk about that we had to recruit a guest to help us all out, and it’s none other than the @Lansdellicious himself, Chris Lansdell.  The former podcasting lady-of-the-night helps us cover all the ridiculous amount of information they hit us with at the MTG Panel at SDCC.  Also, Mike and Brian tell you how they did in their Modern PTQ last weekend!  Also, 3/3s for 3!  Also, STICKERS!

Episode 324 – MTG, JB, Ctrl-V, OMG

Little Girl

This episode is all over the place.  We didn’t really have a central topic this week, so it’s sort of a potpourri of nonsense.  We had plenty of speculation about the next block, then Brian left for the night.  Then there was lawsuit talk, which everyone should totally read.  There’s a Kickstarter for crazy custom deck boxes, jailbait songs, sweet Terese Nielsen lands, and plenty of Conspiracy cards to talk about.  We hope you all enjoy the randomness!
