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 628 - The Commanders of D&D

After an unexpected week off, the dorks return with the D&D set Commander cards! We're looking at all the Commanders of course, then we're hopping around the card image gallery to take a look at whatever else grabs our attention. Warning: I'm not...



Episode 627 - Go For the Eyes Boo!

The dorks head back into the Adventures in the Forgotten Realms Card Image Gallery to check out even more awesome D&D related cards! We'll go through all the Class cards, which are really a neat idea. There are more planeswalkers and flavor words...



Episode 626 - The Pool of the Dorks of Mana

The dorks return to guide you through their first look at the Adventures in the Forgotten Realms, or the Magic D&D set. We'll venture into dungeons, roll lots of d20s, and discuss the merits of flavor words on cards! You'll meet goblins, see...



Episode 625 - What's Up with Red Rares?

What's up with Red Rares? Not the dragons and phoenixes and big burn spells, those are all pretty self-explanatory. We mean those...OTHER Red Rares. You know the ones. The dorks dive into the different flavors of these bizarre cards and try to figure...

Episode 624 - The Return of Travis the Cursed!

The dorks are back (sorry for the delay getting the show posted by the way) and we're looking at more Modern Horizons 2! There's a lot of really neat and bizarre stuff in here, but none of that really matters compared to the one major revelation....

Episode 623 - Say the Name!

The dorks return to look at the Modern Horizons 2 previews! This set is truly bizarre. It feels more like a Commander set or another Time Spiral set with all the in-jokes and callbacks and utterly ridiculous card designs! Of course there's the one...

Episode 622 - The MCU Episode

The dorks take a week off from MTG to talk about something else entirely - the Marvel Cinematic Universe! It's just a big fun discussion about how ridiculous it is that the MCU even exists, some of our favorite moments, and other topics of that sort....

Episode 621 - The Schools of the TMP University of the Arcane

The dorks each create a School of Magic for the forthcoming TMP University of the Arcane! And as usual, each of us took the same idea and each took our own unique take on it. Brian created an entire university (misunderstanding the idea slightly),...

Episode 620 - Omnisword of Ultimate Badassness

So incredibly sorry for the delay on this episode! Chewie had lots of real-life stuff come up so he couldn't actually get it all put together for a week. The dorks (most of them anyway) are back to look at Commander 2021 since it has been revealed!...

Episode 619 - Keep Learning!

The full Strixhaven set has been revealed, so the dorks are combing through it looking for the neat stuff. We've got the Mastery spells, an Eye Bat, a...trudge?, a cycle of weirdly-costed multicolored hybrid cards, and an 11/10 creature for...four...
