On this episode, the three amigos cover everything anyone could ever want to know about copy effects. If by the end of this there is some corner of copy effects you don’t understand, then you just weren’t listening.

(By the way, you’re going to want this: Mirrorweave – Each other creature becomes a copy of target nonlegendary creature until end of turn.)

JudgeCast #106 – JAR of Knowledge

On this very special episode, we finally dedicate an entire episode to the JAR. This is must-have knowledge for L1 hopefuls, and really something every judge needs to know at all levels as the nearly all sanctioned Magic events that ever happen are run at Regular REL.

To help us, we have special guest L4 and JAR Boss Kim Warren on to guide us through.

The latest version of the JAR can always be found at judgecast.com/docs

JudgeCast #104 – FNM Format Fun

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.

JudgeCast #89 – A Type-ical Episode (Part 2)

On this, our second part of our two part series on types, we cover Subtypes and type-changing effects in detail! This podcast is not a trap and there is nothing arcane about it.

Uhh…curse your gated shrines? Urza’s? This joke is not as easy with Subtypes as it was on episode 88 (Which you should listen to first before listening to this one!)

Also, be sure to listen after “the credits” for One Weird Tip a local mom discovered on how to increase the quality of your podcast audio!

JudgeCast #88 – A Type-ical Episode (Part 1)

This episode promises to be anything but basic, in fact you might call it legendary! Are you snowed in with only your creature comforts? It’s a good thing you landed here of all places in the world. Turn on this episode about types in Magic and in an instant prepare to be enchanted.

Through what sorcery do we put out content so good? We have special guest Aaron LaCluyze on, a fan of the tribe of Goblins and an all around scientific expert.

Unrelated, Karn is an artifact and a planeswalker. I mean, not really, but something has to complete this belabored joke.

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!

JudgeCast #42 – Getting Your Priorities Straight

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.
