Judge Conference

About the conference

With hundreds of players, dozens of event schedule and dozens of judges on staff, CommandFest Montreal is the occasion to unite canadian magic and offer suitable formation and inplay context experiences for judges to gather and share knowledge.

Our goals is to offer a multi-day conference, schedule at the end of each day, to be accessible to all judge (on and off staff) to attend different seminars of their interest. We want presentations on Jar, Competive REL, on the unicity of judging multiplayer commander, on the unicity of bilingual interactions aswel as offer a platform for judge to network during the event with judges that are on other teams, have similar objectives or decided to play. We also wish to have a quick seminar on the friday presenting Montreal, its points of interests and its magic scene, aswell as include a judge supper before sunday night’s conference.

About CommandFest

CommandFest is an event focused on Commander, with a suite of opportunities for Commander play in addition to other ways to celebrate coming together and playing Magic as well as the release of Commander Legends: Baldur’s Gate. Many of these events will require a badge but provide more Magic than you could possibly play in a weekend.



Foil support is available for presenters and all Judge Academy certified judge (Level 1, 2, or 3) attendees.
As an in-person conference, packs will contain the cards as per this post: Judge Academy announcement
