Thank you for your interest in joining The Legacy Pit at our second Open! We’re very excited to welcome back judges to our Open series and we’re excited to have expanded it to include not just Magic’s best format, Legacy but also Modern and Vintage! Below, you will find all the information you’ll need to be a judge at our event. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us at or through the contact page on JA. We look forward to working with you!



Head Judge – Abe Corson

Appeals Judge/Checks Lead – Elliot Raff

Judge Manager – Ryan Freeburger

We are looking to add several judges to our team including both floor judges and team leads.

The judge staff for this event will be responsible for running the following events over the course of two days: A 20k Legacy Main Event, .a 5k Modern Memorial Tournament, a 2k Vintage Quest featuring 15 proxy vintage and three 1k side events featuring a mix of legacy and modern. Check out the full schedule here.



Judges for The Legacy Pit Open II are expected to prepare for each event by reviewing the Comprehensive Rules, Magic Tournament Rules, Infraction Procedure Guide, and Judging at Regular REL documents. These documents can be found at the Magic Judges Document Center. As certified representatives of the Magic Judge Program, judges are expected to behave in a professional manner at all times. Judges are expected to arrive on time and in appropriate attire to begin judging at the start of their assigned shifts.

Judges at The Legacy Pit Open will be expected to wear a black collared shirt provided by The Legacy Pit, black pants, black belt and black, comfortable shoes. If you have previously judged with us, we ask that you bring and use the shirt from the first Legacy Pit Open. During breaks, or any other time that a judge is off duty, judges should remove or cover their judge shirts. Judges will also be required to wear a mask at all times while in the Event Hall. This event has a Mask Mandate that requires players, staff, vendors and spectators to be wearing a mask at all times while inside the Event Hall. Judges will be expected to assist in the enforcement of the Mask Mandate in the same way that Judges are expected to assist with disruptive individuals. This event also has a vaccine or negative test mandate that applies to the staff as well. For more information on safety precautions, please read the FAQs.



If selected for a judging role, you may be asked to do any of the following:

  • Work on the Main Event (pairings, slips, floor management, deck checks, end of round, etc.)
  • Work on any of the other main events including the Modern Memorial or the Vintage Quest
  • Judge Scheduled 1k Side Events

If selected to judge, you will be expected to work the full event, reporting at 9AM. Judge release times will be dependent on the day of the event and can expect to work no longer than 11 hours per day, not including breaks.  Judges will have both a one hour lunch break and a 30 minute half round break during the course of the day, as coordinated by the Team Leads. If selected as a Floor Judge, you may staffed either one day or two days, depending on your answers on the google form linked later in the description.

Floor Judges will be compensated 200 dollars for the each day they are on staff at the event, paid through Paypal at the conclusion of the event.



If selected for the team lead role, you will be asked to do the following:

  • Oversee any of the teams for the Legacy 20k main event
  • Oversee any of the teams for the Modern Memorial or Vintage Quest event
  • Oversee the unified deck checks team for all of the events that require decklists (Legacy Main, Modern Memorial and Vintage Quest)
  • Oversee the team running the 3 1k side events

If selected as a Team Lead, you will be expected to work until your team is no longer needed, reporting at 9AM. Team Leads will have a one hour lunch break during the course of the day, as coordinated by the Head Judge and Tournament Manager. If selected as a Team Lead, you’ll be staffed for both days of the event.

Team Leads will be compensated 500 dollars for the full event, paid through Paypal at the conclusion of the event.



Depending on expected numbers at the time of decisions, we may choose to place additional judges on standby so that we can be prepared for any size event. On the google form that is part of this application, you will indicate whether or not you’d like to be considered for a standby role. If you indicate you would like to be considered for such, you may be offered a standby position. If that happens, you’ll receive an email within 48 hours of the event’s start informing you whether or not you’ll be activated for the event. If you are, you’ll be staffed as a floor judge for one or both days of the event, depending on what you indicate on the google form. If you are not activated, we invite you to play in any one of our 1k Side Events free of charge. Simply come to the stage on Saturday or Sunday, give your name to registration and we’ll be happy to accommodate you.
