JudgeCast #151 – Eldritch Moon Release Notes

As per the pact made with 4 demons, we are back yet again with another Release Notes episode! We cover our top picks of cards that we think are interesting rules-wise or maybe just interesting.

We seem to really like cards that make spirits, and we make sure everyone knows a new card isn’t a one-turn-kill. Oh and Emrakul. That wily Emrakul.

JudgeCast #129 – Battle for Zendikar Release Notes Awokened!

In our quarterly tradition, we’re back with an episode all about the Battle for Zendikar release notes! We cover every mechanic in depth, and pick out the juiciest looking cards to give you a boost for playing in and judging your prerelease.

Want to learn how Awakening a spell might not always be the best move? How about how it interacts with manlands? How colorless is devoid? Converge, what’s the deal with that? How to handle “processing” when there are multiple piles of facedown exiled cards, I know that’s been eating away at you.

Come for the knowledge, stay for the awkward segues!
