JudgeCast #228 – The Many Mechanics of Modern Horizons

Brogan and Bryan team up with the Once and Future L2 Erik Aliff to discuss Future Sight 2, AKA Modern Horizons. In our Finest Hour, we outlast the nay-sayers and persist through all 45 mechanincs that appear on cards in Modern Horizons. We were hellbent on getting through all of them and created a 2 hour monstrosity of an episode.

JudgeCast #175 – Attending your First Comp REL Event as a Player

Welcome to Episode #175

In this Episode we talk about things a player may want to know before taking the plunge and attending their first Competitive Rules Enforcement Episode. What is a decklist and why do I need to bring it?  Is there a lunch break? Why is this person in a black shirt hovering behind me? It’s full of chillax and whatever wine pairs well with chillax’in.

We also are joined by a special guest;  Michael Shiver from The Mana Pool.  The Mana Pool is one of the longest running MTG related podcasts in the world, and are only a few months away from Episode #500.  Please check them at themanapool.com or find them on Twitter at twitter.com/themanapool
