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 #60 – Billy Willy’s Public Events Fun Hour

GP Charlotte was the largest Magic event to date (And much bigger than estimated), which had some unique judging challenges. We have L2 Matt Williams (lovingly referred to as Billy Willy) on to discuss being at the GP with a focus on being the Public Events lead for an event with so very many people. We also talk paper cutters for much longer than rational people should.

As always, we read e-mails from listeners like you! This week had some real doozies, including a rant and proclamation by CJ about Hive Mind and/or Knowledge Pool.
