JudgeCast #156 – Kaladesh Release Notes with Tabak and Mox

Tabak and Mox, attorneys at law.

Tabak and Mox, chefs extraordinaire.

Tabak and Mox, crime fighting duo.

Whatever they may be to you, we have Matt Tabak (Some random editor at WotC who would agree to be on. I think he writes some stories on the website?), Sara Mox (The judge manager at WotC and contender for #1 fan of the show), and a silent and mysterious Kayla (who attempts to, behind the scenes, reign the first two in but also knows deep in her heart that it is impossible) on the show to talk about the release notes for Kaladesh!

With this much greatness on, something had to give and CJ was not able to make this episode and he’s deeply sad about it. You won’t notice him missing though. HIS COHOSTS SURE DIDN’T NOR DO THEY MENTION IT AND THEY QUICKLY REPLACE HIM.

Oh yeah. Kaladesh. We go over the new mechanics! We talk card by card for the cards of interest! I’m told there is some form of wrestling game in the middle for some reason!

Warning: If you’re not someone who enjoys shows where we have fun, this might not be the episode for you. You can jump in 21 minutes to where mechanics talk starts.

JudgeCast #151 – Eldritch Moon Release Notes

As per the pact made with 4 demons, we are back yet again with another Release Notes episode! We cover our top picks of cards that we think are interesting rules-wise or maybe just interesting.

We seem to really like cards that make spirits, and we make sure everyone knows a new card isn’t a one-turn-kill. Oh and Emrakul. That wily Emrakul.
