This week, we take a look at the steps you should take in order to have an enjoyable and productive tournament experience. From testing and deck choice through meta considerations to tournament logistics. How to try and avoid tilt, when to call a judge, how to watch for slow play and cheating. We also consider some psychology and enjoy some rambling stories. Everything you need from your regular Legacy Breakfast fix!

Prepping for GP Kyoto; found this episode especially helpful. I’ll try my hardest to not flip any tables.
Sweet man. Glad you found it helpful! Also – one more thing: Don’t forget your CRUSHFACE! Have fun and hope you do well :).
Absolutely perfect pronunciation of my name. Could you teach how to say it to my colleagues?
And as always, thank you for your podcasts 🙂
Hey, nice cast just wanted to clarify something You guys seem to confuse slow play with stalling.
Slow play is defined as “A player is guilty of Slow Play if he fails to perform game actions in a reasonable period of time.” and this is very common, and repeated offense often results in a warning and can be upgraded to a game loss for second warning.
Stalling is defined as: “A player intentionally plays slowly in order to take advantage of the time limit.” The penalty for stalling is disqualification.
Keep up the good work 🙂
You aren’t the only person to have spotted this… Apologies! We’ll try and clarify it next episode!
