The Mana Pool

Chewie, Mike, Brian, and Dirk have been talking about Magic: The Gathering on the internet for almost 10 years (at the time of this writing). Since there are so many shows about strategy and tournaments, these dorks focus on all the fun you can have with the game outside of that, from flavor to philosophy to game design to history to whatever else we can come up with. We're funny, we're serious about what we do, and we love it!

Episode 554 - Time Spiral Two Point Oh


We're back with more Modern Horizons previews! I've been saying it for a couple weeks now, but this set really is Time Spiral all over again. There's a ridiculous amount of old mechanics coming back, and so many cards are not only good on their own,...
