JudgeCast #211 – Tournament Policy Updates and MagicFest

There have been a lot of Magic announcements the last two weeks, and in this episode, we talk about as many as we can fit into an hour. There are tournament policy changes, MagicFest has been announced alongside Grand Prix next year, new Regional Coordinators have been selected, and JudgeCast’s own Bryan Prillaman was selected as the newest Judge Program Coordinator. And that doesn’t even mention the death of PPTQs!
