JudgeCast #162 – E-mail Soul Brother

On this episode, we take the time to go over listener e-mails! We cover rules, policy, and some mysterious “other” questions. The mysteries of transform are revealed, and how many Emrakuls are too many Emrakuls? Also, everyone’s second favorite weird red card Illicit Auction is here (the first favorite is of course Goblin Game).

This episode may hold the record for our shortest ever (but maybe not)…and it may also hold the record for longest amount of bonus material after the episode is done. In other words, this episode was so rubber.

JudgeCast #153 – Answering Letterrrrs

We have L2, frequent e-mailer, and pirate aficionado Kali Rainwater to help us get through our backlog of e-mails.

We cover policy questions like how to handle if someone actually drew out of their sideboard, or if you can scry 3 infinite times to order your library.

On the rules front we cover a ton of cards from Eldritch Moon and some wacky Blood Moon shenanigans, among others. We even have a special sidebar on what’s apparently the most confusing card in Standard: Spell Queller.

We even have some great discussions on what it means to be an L2, how to handle counterfeits, and what to do when you make an incorrect ruling.
