JudgeCast #125 – As Easy as DEC

Yes I know I used this title on episode 38. YOU COME UP WITH NEARLY 100 TITLES AND KEEP THEM FRESH.

Speaking of fresh, we have a brand new IPG out! This one has some big changes, and we go in-depth on the biggest: Drawing Extra Cards is now a warning! We go in deep on what this means with a few examples.

We also discuss some of the other miscellaneous changes to the IPG and some small changes to the rules (A change to casting spells?! Will we need to learn a new mnemonic?), and read the spiciest of e-mails.
