Episode #447 – What a Revolting Development


We’re back for a new year and a new set! Of course Aether Revolt previews are going on, so that’s what we’re focusing on this episode! After a heartfelt talk from Chewie about his recent charity stream and depression and stuff that is.

We’ve got Aether Revolt mechanics, the Planeswalker Deck cards, plenty of new cards, and even some Star Wars Rebels to talk about this episode! All the links are down below, so be sure to tell us what you think of these cards!

Episode 446 – A Chill End to the Year


For the final episode of 2016 we’ve decided to take it easy. We’re starting off with a listener-supplied Magic Mad Lib, sent in by Lvl99Luck. It’s pretty great. From there it’s on to a few more Aether Revolt previews. Then we’re going over some feedback on last week’s episode, both from Mike and the listeners! It turns out we came up with some entertaining and controversial ideas last week and several of you wanted to weigh in, which we love! Keep it coming!

Episode 444 – We Did This To Ourselves


We have Aether Revolt previews! But wait, Aether Revolt previews haven’t actually…started. And yet we have this stack of cards on the official site to talk about? I’m very confused. Clearly we did this to ourselves.

After we’re done with those we’re taking a look at various forms of vehicular transportation in Magic’s history and sort of trying to turn them into modern Vehicle cards. There are plenty of tangents along the way, with everything from coin-flipping to ante (and yes, Amulet of Quoz has both of those things) popping up to distract us. But it’s a lot of fun and we hope you all enjoy!

And by the way, Chewie is streaming video games on Twitch now! Come check it out at www.twitch.tv/themanapool!

Episode 442 – The Moist Curse


After an accidental week off during our ninth anniversary (whoops) we’re back to finish off what we started in the last episode! We’re taking a look at the rest of the new cards in Commander 2016 and poking around in the reprints to see what’s good there.

In the next episode we’re actually going to play a live game with four of these new decks, so be sure to come back then!

Episode 441 – Double Strife & Likelink


The dorks are tackling the Commander 2016 set! Now that the whole thing is revealed we have plenty of stuff to go over – so much so that we didn’t even finish this time. We are going into great detail about all the new legendary creatures since they are the focus of the Commander format in general, as well as a handful of the new cards! If nothing better comes along then next week we’ll look at the rest of the new stuff as well as the insane number of reprints in these decks!
