Are they out of their mind? Judges get paid in promos currently.
Quote from MeatPileMagic »
Outside of the very lengthy monologue, I agree the fee structure does not support a volunteer community. Too many people here are making analogies to industrial and working certificates when the judge program is supposed to be a VOLUNTARY program. They are the street corner and soap box supporters of the game, and now they are being asked to take out their wallets and throw more money at the hard work they already put their blood sweat and time into. Its insulting and unrealistic. They asked for pay and most cannot receive it as an LGS 9/10 is hard pressed to make revenue on magic as the cost basis keeps going up and the player base shops more online.
Quote from Gutterstorm »Question about this and counterspells:
Say someone casts a spell, in response I cast Counterspell and hold priority and cast Sudden Exchange. I exchange control of the counterspell and some sweet creature an opponent has. When that opponent retargets the counterspell can it target itself or does it have to target something else?
Quote from The Lord of Tresserhorn »I think it has to target something else. I just looked this up, actually, and checked the rulings for Deflection, and it states:
"10/4/2004 You can’t make a spell which is on the stack target itself."
Quote from JNitmo »I was also informed by my FLGS that at least one copy in standard rotation has to be in the deck. Things that are not always in rotation like Llanowar Elves would be a good example of that.
