The guys do their monthly Hearthstone episode this week! We begin with a quick recap of our humble origins as an unofficial Blizzard gaming podcast. After that it’s business as usual, discussing our latest new decks and deck changes. We had some discussions about some cards and decks along the way like you’d expect. After…

The Mana Pool #364 – Ancient Carp: Best Card in Dragons

On this episode, the dorks are joined by our old buddy Eric of Many Names! We’re creating packs of Dragons of Tarkir out of the spoiler rather than just picking stuff out at random. There’s really not as much overlap as you might think, so give it a listen for a good look at a…

On this episode the dorks cover all the news from PAX East and hit a whole mess of the Dragons of Tarkir previews. When this was recorded, about half the set had been revealed, so we couldn’t hit ALL the cards, but we did hit all the high notes we could find! For more information,…

On this episode, the dorks take their first look at Dragons of Tarkir previews.

On this extra-long live episode, the dorks gathered at Brian’s house and played two games of Commander. The first game is truly awesome! And for the second game we managed to avoid the “long miserable grindy game” that sometimes happens when we record. And thank goodness we recorded this when we did, because the next…

On this episode, witness the beginning of TWO new recurring segments! First up is the soon-to-be-renamed (spoilers!) Mythic Conscription, where we go back through an old pre-mythic-rarity set and pick out which rares would be mythic nowadays. We’re starting with Legions! Following that, Dirk debuts Dirk’s Creature Corner, where he picks out a popular creature…
