Hello Podwalkers,

Welcome back to the Goblin Lore Podcast and please welcome our guests for today! We are joined by Ced and Ken from One More Mana (aka ManaSquad). These amazing creators are here continuing on from Part 1 of a two-part discussion of how they approach EDH/Commander deck building. Part 1 covered their individual philosophies while Part 2 looks at how building styles may be influenced by the narratives we all have about ourselves. We discuss more about bringing our stories to the gaming space and about how representation and boosting of creators is beneficial to all.

Again we would like to state that Black Lives Matter (with a link to where you can offer support both monetary and not).


As promised, we plan to keep these Mental Health Links available moving forward too. For general Mental Health the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) has great resources for people struggling with mental health concerns as well as their families. We also want to draw attention to this article on stigma from NAMI’s site.

If you’re thinking about suicide or just need someone to talk to right now, you can get support from any of the resources below.
