The Summer of Hogaak is officially over! The B&R update did exactly what everyone expected...and it also did some things that weren't expected! Three formats had changes - Modern of course, Standard, and even Vintage! Then there's the double Grand Prixen at MagicFest Las Vegas, and two juicy bits of controversy that happened there. Just a friendly reminder that judges are your friends, not power-mad lunatics that DQ you for looking at them funny. Also, don't cheat. Unfortunately these two things are completely unrelated, which is just sad.
