You must have a personal endorsement from an L2 or L3 judge to become Level 1. This can take time, and we STRONGLY suggest building that relationship as soon as possible. To see what this means and why it’s required, please read Endorsement Information.
This Module will guide you through the basics of the Magic Tournament Rules document, covering what a Level 1 judge needs to know. We’ll cover the different roles at an event, basic tournament mechanics, sanctioning rules for events, and the recommended or required time limits for common events you’ll see as an L1 Judge.
