JudgeCast #165 – Aether Revolt Policy Updates

On this episode, we cover quite a bit of news and policy updates! So much, that we have to bring special guest Erik Aliff on to help! Some mysterious changes to hidden card error, some tweaks to looking at extra cards, and some exciting changes to deck decklist error! If you’re not excited about minor policy tweaks then honestly what can you be excited for?

We also cover some changes in the MTR, like the new “you can only pile shuffle at the start of a game” rule.

And we read a few policy related e-mails from listeners just like you or who are you.
