Take your monoblack deck, then set aside 14 swamps. Add 4 Creeping Tar Pits, 4 Darkslick Shores, 4 Drowned Catacombs, and 2 Jwar isle Refuge and add 4 Jace, the Mindsculptors. Your monoblack deck is instantly better. Better yet, drop those refuges, throw in some islands and some mana leaks, and lo and behold, you're now playing a real deck. Congratulations. Welcome to the world of competitive M:TG.
Quote from NightfallGeminithe judge was cheating. planeswalker hate is the hexmage's intended purpose. report him to the DCI.
Quote from lilmishraI was up against the judge at zendikar prerelease today and he had Chandra unleashed out and I put in Vampire Hexmage and my intention of course was to sac it to remove loyalty counters from Chandra and kill her, however he's the judge and he said and said that the counters on chandra weren't counters by the rules of the game, but instead just loyalty.
Quote from CarstenHaeseMuch more problematic than the incorrect ruling is the fact that he played in the event he judged. That's not allowed yet.
Quote from imafigureskaterIn a prerelease or FNM, can't judges play?
Quote from epeeguyNote: This changes October 1st, and judges will be able to play in Regular REL events they are judging (such as Prereleases).
Quote from epeeguyThat could be a problem, presuming he was actually judging and not just a certified judge playing in the event. (We do that from time to time.) Without knowing the full circumstances of what occurred, I would reserve judgment on making any comments about anything that occurred. Note: A judge playing in an event they were actively judging should create an error report when submitted to the DCI. If that happened, it will be detected on the DCI's end and dealt with accordingly.
If the OP believes something improper occurred, then John Carter should be emailed. He can be contacted through the Judge Center.
