JudgeCast #102 – Are you telling me you built an episode out of a Delorean?

The Judgers Grimm take this episode to discuss the recent policy updates! We cover changes to Drawing Extra Cards, Improper Draw at Start of Game, GRV, and also go over how to handle morph at Competitive REL events!

We also get caught up on some listener e-mails, mostly about the new cards in Khans of Tarkir.

JudgeCast #100 – Blast from the Past

This episode is all about JudgeCast! We have some very special guests (Who could they be?!) on and discuss the past, present, and the future of JudgeCast in all its forms.

If you’re only in it for the education, this episode might not be for you. Take a couple weeks off, read the CR, take a nap. For the enfranchised fan, this is one of the best episodes ever.

You’ve all waited a long time, and finally we can say…

It’s Morphin’ Time!

JudgeCast #97 – Sky Is Not Falling Edition – L2 Redefinition and New IPG

There’s been so much happening over the past few weeks!

On this episode the judgefellas have special guest Justin Turner (L3 and RC) on to talk about some big changes to the judge program.

We go into the L2 redefinition in depth. Why did it change, what do L1s looking to become L2 need to do now, and even what do existing L2s need to do to remain L2?

We also cover the new IPG. Listen to exciting changes/clarifications to Improper Draw at Start of Game, Game Rule Violation, Deck/Decklist Problem, and the expanded and upgraded version of Unsporting Conduct – Major

JudgeCast #95 – What To Suspend When You’re Suspended

We discuss the disqualification process from start to finish, including the paperwork a judge needs to do and what happens after they pass it off. And because we don’t know what happens after the judge passes it off, we have very special guests Eric “Toucan” Shukan (head of the Investigations Committee) and Guillaume Beuzelin (also of the Investigations Committee) on to discuss the process entirely.

(Unfortunately, Jess’s audio gets weird as the episode progresses. We apologize for that, it hopefully won’t happen again and does not take away from the great information in the show)

JudgeCast #94 – Potpourri Party

On this episode, we each bring a smaller topic that doesn’t fill an entire episode but something we wanted to talk about. Learn about numbers! Setting life totals! Damage! Drawing cards! And the finer points of casting a spell.

We also celebrate a new L4, issue a correction from the previous episode, and read listener e-mails.
