JudgeCast #97 – Sky Is Not Falling Edition – L2 Redefinition and New IPG

There’s been so much happening over the past few weeks!

On this episode the judgefellas have special guest Justin Turner (L3 and RC) on to talk about some big changes to the judge program.

We go into the L2 redefinition in depth. Why did it change, what do L1s looking to become L2 need to do now, and even what do existing L2s need to do to remain L2?

We also cover the new IPG. Listen to exciting changes/clarifications to Improper Draw at Start of Game, Game Rule Violation, Deck/Decklist Problem, and the expanded and upgraded version of Unsporting Conduct – Major

JudgeCast #58 – Missed Triggers in Little China

Okay. You people sit tight, hold the fort and keep the home fires burning. And if we’re not back by dawn… call the president.

On this episode we have special guest L3 James Bennett on to discuss the new (super new) IPG! We talk triggers (Everyone loves triggers!), the other policy changes (We should rename a past episode due to some of these changes), and the newest MTR. Also for some reasons we make a lot of references from Big Trouble in Little China!

And of course we read all the e-mails from listeners just like you.
