JudgeCast #61: Welcome to my “Layer” – Part 1

Copy the URL to this one down! Try to control your excitement! Text all of your friends who are rules-loving types and tell them to listen to our very special episode on layers (Or, “Interaction of Continuous Effects”). Never heard of layers? Color us impressed! Part of the greatness of layers is their ability to reach intuitive results without the players needing to think about them. It’s a powerful tool, and it’s tough sometimes to even see where the layers are working.

As is characteristic of all our episodes, we set out to educate you, the listener, on all the basics of layers. Is there anything you’d like us to modify about this episode? Did we say something counter to what you’d expect? This episode is all about the basics (What someone going for L1 would need to know) and next episode we switch it up with the advanced stuff.

Have something you want to hear on the next episode? E-mail us at judgecast@gmail.com.

JudgeCast #52 – Every Little Step I Take

In this episode, CJ, Jess, and Bryan discuss the steps and phases of a turn.  Is it worth it? Let me work it.  I put my thing down, flip it and reverse it.  Or something like that.  I’m not up on all the hippity-hop you kids listen to these days.  Jess announces his bid for the Presidency, based on a platform we can all get behind, and CJ discusses a situation of great “gravity.”

And of course we answer questions from listeners like you!

Jess, CJ, and Bryan are back with another action packed episode of JudgeCast! On this episode, we discuss the new Infraction Procedure Guide and Magic Tournament Rules. We also take some time to discuss how priority works in Magic (You’re on your own to figure it out for poker).

We also announce our new contest! Take a picture of you hugging a judge and post it on our Facebook wall (facebook.com/judgecast) and you could win yourself a shiny judge foil Vendilion Clique! The winner will be selected randomly from all entries. Posting a picture with any judge will get you 1 entry. Take a picture with a current or past host (Sean Catanase, Jose Boveda, Jess Dunks, Bryan Prillaman, and CJ Shrader) and you’ll get yourself a cool 3 entries.  Get a picture with Riki Hayashi and your risking of your life just earned you 5 entries! We’ll even award bonus entries based on creativity!

Finally, we wrap up by reading e-mails from listeners just like you and discussing Harry Potter for some reason.

JudgeCast #40 – The Loucksiest Cast

Jess unfortunately couldn’t join us for this podcast, so Bryan and CJ soldier on with a very special guest: Jon Loucks from Limited Resources!

We kick the show off with some discussion on the Cavern of Souls ruling, do a crack a pack (A dream come true really) and then barrage Jon with rules questions as we go through the steps needed to become a Level 1 judge!

We wrap up by announcing the winner of our “Judgebreaker” contest and reading mails from listeners just like YOU.
