Ravnica Guilds in Three Words

Azorius: “Guiity. Guilty. Guilty.”

Boros: “Shoot. Then Arrest.”

Dimir: “Don’t Mind Us”

Golgari: “It’s Just Mold!”

Gruul: “Burn it down!”

Izzet: “Bored. Moving On”

Orzhov: “Where’s My Money?!”

Rakdos: “Fuck. Eat. Kill.”

Selesnya: “Come Animal Friends!”

Simic: “Needs more… tentacles.”

Planeswalker Shorts: Jace gets a Focus spinner

Lavinia: “Gideon, where’s Jace?”

Gideon: “In the office, getting paperwork done.”

Lavinia: “I never knew you to be one for jokes. Seriously, where is he?”

Gideon: “I Gid you not. He is indeed in the office”

*Lavinia walks in the office. Jace is poured over paper work, a spinning object in his left hand.*

Lavinia: “Jace, what are you doing?”

Jace: “Well we’re behind on paperwork. So I’m trying to catch up before I leave again.”

*The object in Jace’s hand spins at an increasing rate.*

Lavinia: “Who are you, and what have you done with the Guildpact?”

*Jace continues signing things. The device in his hand slows down a little bit.”

Gideon: “He’s been working hard all day.”

Lavinia: “What is that thing in his hand?”

Gideon: “On a plane we visited, there were local wizards there who used it for focus. Jace acquired one. He’s been working like this ever since.”

Jace: “Some of the locals used them for tricks and entertainment…I did not have such luck for that.”

Gideon: “He hit himself in the face, many times. We haven’t figured out how.”

Jace: “Never look at them close..and let go…I’ve learned my lesson”.

Lavinia: “I’ll leave you be, Guildpact. I am thankful for how serious you’re taking the paper work. Shall I get you any food?”

Jace: “All of it.”

*The spinner increases in speed, becoming a blur. Due to sweat, the spinner leaves Jace’s hand and hits a wall. Through sheer force, it bounces back and hits Jace in the head.*

Jace: *Head hitting the desk after being hit* “All the food please. Also, something for this headache.”

Lavinia: “Of course Jace.”

Lavinia exits the office. 

Moments later…

Lavinia: “I Gid you not, heh. Wait a second…”

genderlich  asked:

Can I request that first sets on new worlds have more interesting names more often? More like "Ravnica, City of Guilds" and "Shards of Alara" and "Khans of Tarkir" than just "Kaladesh", "Amonkhet", "Ixalan".

Let’s see what all of you think. When we first visit a world, would you prefer:

a) Just the world’s name as the set name (Innistrad, Theros, Kaladesh, Amonkhet)


b) Modifiers along with the name of the world as set name (Khans of Tarkir, Scars of Mirrodin, Shadows over Innistrad)?

(I’m aware some of my examples of the second aren’t first time visits, we just don’t have lots of examples.)

Battle For The Guilds

Do you like the guilds of ravnica? Do you wish you ran one?? Well now’s your chance!

In the Battle For The Guilds, a series of matches will be held on cockatrice to determine who gets to run their chosen guild.

You’ll play an edh game with a commander of your guild’s colors against other people vying for the same guild, and whoevers left standing becomes the official guild leader. This is using normal edh rules & banlist (40 life, 10 card sideboard for outside the game cards, vancouver mulligans, etc).

In the event that theres more than 4 applicants for a guild, youll be split up into separate pods, and the winners of the pods will face off against each other if necessary.

But thats not all! The winner for each guild is decided on two things- how well you do in the tournament, and how well your deck represents your guild. Each decklist will be made available to the public, and people not playing in that guild will be able to vote for which decks they feel best represent the guild!

Your final score will be a combination of your deckbuilding score and your placement in the game.

How do you get in on this? Just pm @guildpact-official with your chosen guild and a link to your decklist on tappedout.net. Registrations open to everyone! Theres no limit to how many people can be in each guild!

Registration will close sunday, october 15th.

If you have any further questions, feel free to shoot me an ask.

D&D, Anyone?

I’m interested in making some one shots at lower levels in MTG planes to feel grounded in that world. I have a few scenarios in mind, since they’re one shots in grounded worlds you’ll make characters and possibly background to what you’re doing or who you are. For example in a squad of Boros soldiers you can have been trained together and assigned something when we pick up the one shot.

Details will come out by the one shot. Below are a few ideas I have. If you’re interested Like this post, if yuh rebolg or comment it with a scenario you’re interested in I can try to reserve you a spot. I’m also flexible on races and classes if they fit the world better (aka playing a Boros minotaur or angel).

Boros Squad on Assignment (Ravnica)

Any Ravnica Guild (Ravnica, lemme know which one)

The Woods at Night (Innistrad)

The Great Airship Heist (Kaladesh)

The Inventor’s Fair (Kaladesh

The Goods: a Courier Run (Fiora)

Captured by the Sultai (Tarkir)

The Exploration Party (Ixalan, any faction)

An Accidental Passage (Lorwyn)

I know y’all have your favorite Ravnica guilds and that’s fantastic but I just can’t with the guild morality push-up contests today. it’s dragonlords all over again

My Ingenuity. My Obsession. My Guild.

The Izzet signet is redesigned often, each time becoming closer to a vanity portrait of Niv-Mizzet.

Role in Ravnica

The Izzet are obsessive experimenters, the epitome of keen creative intellect combined with an unfortunately short attention span. The original mandate of the Izzet guild was to provide solutions for public works projects (sewers, boilers, roadways), but their experiments often produce mana geysers, spatial rifts, or arcane portals instead.




Replicate (cost) (When you cast this spell, copy it for each time you paid its replicate cost. You may choose new targets for the copies.)

Overload (cost) (You may cast this spell for its overload cost. If you do, change its text by replacing all instances of ‘target’ with 'each’.)


Humans, Dragons, Weirds, Djinns, Goblins, Elementals, Cyclops, Ogres, Drakes and Faeries.


Nivix, Aerie of the Firemind. Nivix, also known as the “Aerie of the Firemind,” is the home of Niv-Mizzet and the central guildhall of the Izzet. Nivix is a massive tower, one of the tallest in Ravnica. Every level houses Izzet alchemists, mages, and sages who are constantly theorizing, experimenting, and tossing miscalculated experiments across rooms. The very top of the tower is the aerie of Niv-Mizzet himself. Every Izzet who lives and works in Nivix has been hand chosen by Niv-Mizzet. Although none of the experimentations in Nivix seem connected, the great dragon treats them all as if they were part of one grand experiment.


Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind, is the leader and original parun of the Izzet League, is a 15,000-year-old, vain, temperamental, and super-intelligent dragon. Even before the waring of the ten guilds that led to the guild pact, Niv- Mizzet had killed all other intelligent dragons, leaving only his beastly cousins. Niv-Mizzet rarely stoops to concern himself with the day-to-day running of the guild, preferring to craft long-range plans and let his underlings implement the details. The servants of Niv-Mizzet who make up his personal court are referred to as the Izmundi. Niv-Mizzet uses this court to guide his machinations and to keep him abreast of the happenings in the wider world. The Izmagnus are the most powerful members of the Izmundi, which typically has five to seven members, including some whose identities are kept secret. Even members of the Izmagnus are not privy to Niv-Mizzet’s highest-level plans and goals.

Other Legendary Guild members

Tibor and Lumia are the Izzet Guild champions. They are a husband and wife team of archmages. Tibor is a master wind magics and most commonly uses the talents for magical flight. Lumia is a master of earth magic and call magma to the surface to scorch enemies on the ground. Tibor is wise, noble, head in the clouds in contrast to his wife’s fiery and wild-eyed abandon.


Melek was a weird created by Izzet mages to run the Implicit Maze against the other guilds, much to the dismay of Ral Zarek, one of the biggest researchers into the maze. Just as the race was about to begin and all the runners were announcing themselves, Ral sapped Melek’s elemental energy, thus killing Melek and becoming the runner.

The alchemists and artificers of Ravnica’s Izzet League are aided by dozens of attendants, who endure dangerous conditions while their masters remain at a safe distance. Mizzix began as one such attendant, but demonstrated a keen intellect that earned a place at her own magical forge.

During the fall of the Guildpact

In the end of the first Ravnica block, Niv-Mizzet was wounded in a battle with the nephilim and retreated to an unknown location on Ravnica, presumably to recover. Without their leader the Izzet scattered and chaotic, although they didn’t fully collapse like many of the other guilds. But in time as Niv healed, he used the firemind to re-organize the guild. Finally Niv came back to the city and with him the return of the full force of the Izzet.
