It's no secret, I'm a fan of our judges. I love meeting judges whenever I travel to the Pro Tour. With judges around the world helping to oversee and facilitate a fun and fair competitive Magic scene there are plenty more to meet!

Most people see them as the referees of the game, which is certainly true, but it's far from the full picture. There is a very vibrant judge community to oversee game play, facilitate events, teach new players, and generally help the Magic community continue to grow and be more awesome!

Now, let's take a look at these new promos!

First up is Genesis in a new frame. It was originally released in Judgment, which used old card frames and even included a small tombstone next to the name to indicate it had abilities in the graveyard. This new printing does not use the tombstone and is just a sexy foil.

Next up is a new Vindicate with new art and flavor text. Vindicate was originally printed in Apocalypse and has provided many an Orzhov with an effective removal against anything they might face on the board.
