JudgeCast #42 – Getting Your Priorities Straight

Jess, CJ, and Bryan are back with another action packed episode of JudgeCast! On this episode, we discuss the new Infraction Procedure Guide and Magic Tournament Rules. We also take some time to discuss how priority works in Magic (You’re on your own to figure it out for poker).

We also announce our new contest! Take a picture of you hugging a judge and post it on our Facebook wall (facebook.com/judgecast) and you could win yourself a shiny judge foil Vendilion Clique! The winner will be selected randomly from all entries. Posting a picture with any judge will get you 1 entry. Take a picture with a current or past host (Sean Catanase, Jose Boveda, Jess Dunks, Bryan Prillaman, and CJ Shrader) and you’ll get yourself a cool 3 entries.  Get a picture with Riki Hayashi and your risking of your life just earned you 5 entries! We’ll even award bonus entries based on creativity!

Finally, we wrap up by reading e-mails from listeners just like you and discussing Harry Potter for some reason.


JudgeCast #41 – State Based Action Robots

How well do you know your State Based Actions?  Could you name all 21 of them?  Could you accurately compare them to some cartoon that only Bryan is aware of? After this show, you’ll be able to do all of that and more! (Ok, you still won’t know how Archenemy works but you should be able to live without that)

On top of that, we have the mythic rare man/JudgeCast mascot Raven Fox on to help us cover all the ins and outs of SBAs, and maybe even read off some e-mails from listeners just like you.

UPDATE: The SBAs for Legendary permanents and Planeswalkers have changed since this recording. The updated rules are the following:

704.5j. If a player controls two or more planeswalkers that share a planeswalker type, that player chooses one of them, and the rest are put into their owners’ graveyards. This is called the “planeswalker uniqueness rule.”

704.5k. If a player controls two or more legendary permanents with the same name, that player chooses one of them, and the rest are put into their owners’ graveyards. This is called the “legend rule.”



JudgeCast #40 – The Loucksiest Cast

Jess unfortunately couldn’t join us for this podcast, so Bryan and CJ soldier on with a very special guest: Jon Loucks from Limited Resources!

We kick the show off with some discussion on the Cavern of Souls ruling, do a crack a pack (A dream come true really) and then barrage Jon with rules questions as we go through the steps needed to become a Level 1 judge!

We wrap up by announcing the winner of our “Judgebreaker” contest and reading mails from listeners just like YOU.
