JudgeCast starts a new mega-series, to be picked up at some point in the future. The plan? Cover every format that was announced to be legal for FNM.
In this first episode of that series, we cover standard, modern, vintage, block, legacy, draft, and sealed. These may seem basic but you have a standard JudgeCast money-back guarantee you’ll learn something along the way.
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.
The Khans of JudgeCast go over the Khans of Tarkir FAQ! We cover the new mechanics (Except morph, we already did an episode on that and it didn’t change), and go over the interesting cards in the Khans FAQ.
You’ve all waited a long time, and finally we can say…
It’s Morphin’ Time!
With Morph coming back in Khans of Tarkir, we take this opportunity to talk about Morph and Face Down Spells/Permanents in general. We cover every situation with them we can possibly think of, and how you should handle people breaking the rules with them at all RELs.
It’s been an eventful month for judges! On this episode we have special guest Joe “Hugho” Hughto on to discuss all the changes coming down the pipe. We cover the Exemplar program, additional GPs coming to town, the changes to the PTQ structure, and, of course, the removal of judge foils from GPs.
We also take the opportunity to get caught up on e-mails from listeners just like you.
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
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)
