JudgeCast #275 – The Return of Premiere Play

In this episode Bryan and Samma talk about the recently announced changes to Wizards’ Premiere Play and a little bit about what judges can expect. Bryan rants (too much) about his dislike of PPTQs, while Samma waits for him to tucker himself out. Spoilers: Both agree that we are happy that something has returned, though.
