what sounds are you looking for?

what's your budget?

dont try to make the mg something it's not.

just use it, maybe put a pedal in front of it,
and save for your next amp.

Trying to have a pod or pedal that versatile to pretty much any kind of music but mainly rock/hard rock. Budget doesn't really matter.

you can run a POD into your amps clean channel and it will sound OK at best. if you think that running a POD or a pedal into your current amp will somehow turn it into a great sounding tone machine then you will be disappointed. any multi-fx unit will give you a verstile sound but it will only sound as good as your amp is able to reproduce. the MG series isn't very good so it will only sound ok . a better amp would be a better idea

What amp would be good. I thought the MG was a good amp. I know I can buy a cab and run one through it but not very familiar with the better cabs.

MG's are passable practice amps at best. you have to have an amp head to run a cab (or a combo with an amp out to connect to a cab). a multifx unit by itself can't power a cab.

as for what amp would be good we'd need a budget and a better idea of what kind of sound you want. just saying i play everything doesn't help.

and do you gig?

maybe if budget isnt an option, what you really need is a versatile amp
and not a pedal.

MGs are better than people here give them credit for, but at the end of the day they're still Marshall's budget amp so you can't expect too much of them.

If you're after a decent tone and budget doesn't really matter, the best option would be to upgrade the amp first.
