Guilds of Ravnica:
With the return to the plane of Ravnica, the City of Guilds is busier than ever! Bloody skirmishes, brutal subterfuge, new growth, regrowth, and wild experiments abound as each guild prepares for the coming battles. But the greatest threats to the guilds are themselves…
With the new Guild Wars event hosted by Go4Games, you are now being called to join one of 5 guilds to battle for a position of power, as well as treasures of the guild city. Selesnya, Boros, Dimir, Golgari, and Izzet have all opened their gates to recruit fresh members to do battle on their behalf. This event will run from the release of Guilds of Ravnica on October 8th, until the beginning of December, just in time for the remaining 5 guilds to finish their preparations to start recruiting. For those of you who are new to Magic the Gathering, don’t worry.
All wars start small.
The first section of the Guild Wars will run from October 8th to November 6th. On the 6th there will be a grand tournament to determine the top guild for that section, as well as earn more guild points and win booster packs based on their guild. This first half of the war will be Standard format, 60-card decks based on the guild you choose. Your deck may only contain cards of your guild’s colors, similar to Commander format. Once you are dedicated to your guild, you construct your deck and begin battling on their behalf: and don’t worry its completely free to join a guild!
The winning guild is decided based on a points system, where each victory earns you points.
The points system is broken down as follows:
1pt- casual game win, using your 60-card deck
2pt- commander game win, using any colored deck
Friday Night Magic + showdowns + tournaments using your Guild deck
5pts- 1st place
1pt- for every match you win within the tournament
You will still have to pay the normal fees that come with each event, but it earns you more chances to collect points for your guild. What’s more, for each event your guild leader will select 2 champions who will earn DOUBLE the amount of points for their guild in that event! A player’s personal points will not be doubled, but the champion helps their guild’s overall standing, and thus earns more prizes at the end. It is also highly encouraged to wear your guild’s colors for these events to represent your guild and help recruit more members to your fold. The player in each guild at the end of the first section with the most points is named Lieutenant and wins a special guild kit based on their guild!
Once the first set is done, the second section of the war picks up on November 11th with Modern and Commander format. For this section of the battle, guild members will fight for the favor of their guild masters leading up to a tournament on December 11th. Players will earn favor by playing in at least one casual game a week and participating in at least one FNM or showdown each month. The guild members of the overall top guild and those who have earned their master’s favor may preorder a box of Ravnica Allegiance boosters for only $100!
Each guild will have a Facebook group to keep track of its members and allow the guild leaders to ensure their champions are made known. The Guild masters will be fighting amongst themselves in a personal “council” chat where they will discuss the wars, make bribes, threats, bad puns, etc.
Here are your guild leaders:

Choose your guild, wisely.
