@EmoPizza Hi I'm the brainstorm guy. It was an honest mistake unfortunately it wasn't caught while the game was still going on and video was watched after match. I rewatched the footage and it appears bad on camera. The head judge just spoke to me and waived my opponent away when he asked what was going on. The situation could have been handled better but there is know way of the judge knowing that I'm telling the truth. Maybe he rushed to a dq I had no prior warnings. I don't like making excuses and told him I got excited about moat and messed up. I said I disagree with his decsion to dq but respect his opinion if that is what he feels he needs to do.
My thoughts on Vintage events friend who was on staff said his main take away from this event was major issue with tournament policy. Player in question had warnings ie marked cards insufficient shuffling these get upgraded to game losses then match/dq on additional ones. The issue was on a 2 day event penalties are reset for day 2. In top 8 which was day 2 he once again got insufficent shuffling and marked cards but since was day 2 these were just warnings again.
