Ethereal Absolution by Eric Deschamps (http://www.ericdeschamps.com/) The Spoopiest Little Guild It’s that time again! Ravnica Alligience is here, and the Orzhov Syndicate is back to play. This time around, their guild mechanic is Afterlife, which creates white and black flying Spirit creature tokens after your creature dies. This doesn’t look like it was designed with […]

Ravnica Allegiance Set Review – Azorius

Emergency Powers by Chris Rallis (https://www.rallisart.com/) I Fought the Law, and the Law Won Of course the law won. The law always wins. For the Azorius, there is no phrase sweeter, no sentiment more precious, and no rule more golden than the strict adherence to the hieromantic power they hold over Ravnica. As Ravnica Allengiance approaches, the […]

Nikya of the Old Ways by Ryan Pancoast (@rpancoast_art) Not Gruul? THEN DIE! Hello, and welcome to EDHREC’s set review for Ravnica Allegiance!

Pursuit of Knowledge – Rakdos

Rakuno, Rakdos, Raktres Barring decks with black and green in their color identity, the Command Zone found in their gameplay survey that decks with black and red in their color identity were the strongest.

Mechanically Minded – Ninjutsu

Ninjutsu for You Everybody loves Ninjas. You loved them in Mortal Kombat. You loved them when you read about them in the Magic Treehouse books (or was that just me?). And you probably loved them when they first appeared in Betrayers of Kamigawa, despite them being criminally under-supported. Their signature mechanic is, of course, Ninjutsu, and this week […]
