MTG Guildpact Spotlight

The last Cheeto will soon hit the floor at the Magic The Gathering Guildpact Prelease events wrapping up across country. If you weren't able to attend then you can still checkout some of the great Guildpact official-content online.

First stop should be the the Guildpact FAQ page, which has links to some great Guildpact card preview articles written by the Ravnica designers. The expansion includes three new Ravnica Guilds: The Gruul (red/green), The Izzet (red/blue), and the Orzhov (white/black). The card-previews are mostly focused on the various guild rare cards, so they're all awesome and very much overpowered. But with that said -- all of these guilds do an incredible job of combining the mindset of the two correspondng colors. Our favorites include Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind which does some amazing things to turn blue decks into red decks (we realize that's the point), and Ghost Council of Orzhova which perfectly combines the controlling and anal white with power-in-death and leaching aspects of black.

Finally, there's a plain-text Guildpact Spoiler Page that lists each of the 165 new Guildpact cards from A to Z. If you don't mind a few more clicks of the mouse, then the official card database 'Gatherer' also contains all of the Guildpact cards in a far friendlier format.

Guildpact will be available in stores in the form of Tournament packs on February 3rd, and it'll release on Magic-Online February 27.

Can't freakin' wait.
