Our very own papa_funk, aka Toby Elliott, had the privilege of unveiling WotC's newest tournament tech today: Challenge Flags (Please read this article if you haven't been following the news lately.)

Now that they have been officially announced, we the RC are free to start talking about them here, and we'd like to inform the community that we have plans to incorporate Challenge Flags into casual EDH. Our intention is for the flags to play a similar role in Commander as they will in more competitive environments, and we are excited and optimistic that this will greatly facilitate progress toward our goal of making Commander more accessible to the competitive tournament community. Naturally there are barriers to the implementation of Challenge Flags in this format, as the vast majority of kitchen table or pick-up games have no judge staff at all, so a slightly altered procedure will be necessary. The RC has had much time to discuss this issue and we feel that we've come up with a great solution that allows the players themselves to act as head judge (expect to receive a copy of the comprehensive rulebook packaged with the next Commander precon release!), but we'd like the EDH community's input as well. Let us know how you'd like to see this implemented! We are not intending to roll this out with the May update, but you can expect to see your ideas put into effect in September.
