On this episode, the team tackles three policy topics that aren’t big enough for their own episode: Electronic Devices, Notes, and Outside Assistance. Listen, learn, and send us questions to JudgeCast@Gmail.com.
On this episode, the team runs through the new mechanics and a few of the awesome cards in Commander 2018! Also… a bat-dragon?
Full C18 Release Notes from WotC:
Feedback is a two-way street. We talk about why you should write reviews about peers and leaders that you feel are more experienced than you, and how you should do it.
We also review the recent tournament policy changes, and promise we’ll finally delve into loops in a future episode! You can always find the latest policy documents at www.judgecast.com/docs.

Join us as we talk to Level 3 judge and Grand Prix Side Events expert Eric Dustin Brown, also known as EDB, about side events. We ask him what is the best side, and why is it cornbread? He tells us how side events work and why they’re his favorite area of a GP to be working.
JudgeCast is taking the week off to make sure we’re on track for the M19 release notes. But never fear! We’ve still brought you a great episode from the archive; it’s an interview with Jared Sylva about investigations!

We’re often asked about our conversations before and after the show. What do we talk about? How do we interact? Hang out with us as, on our 200th episode, we go in unscripted and unstructured. Our stories and silliness will give you a peek behind the curtain. For some reason, we’ll talk a lot about food. Regular Magic learning content will resume in two weeks.
In a continuation from episode 197, we talk about layers and how effects interact using them. We also talk a bit about dependencies, and reference too many moons (Blood Moon, Bad Moon, Imprisoned in the Moon, etc)
The rules are changing, but the sky isn’t falling. Along with new mechanics and weird cards, Dominaria brings with it rules changes that have caused the errata of many, many Magic cards. Additionally, we go card-by-card over some of the most interesting interactions in the set. Listen in as we explain it all!
