I know Guilds of Ravnica has been out for a while; but I (and a lot of other people, apparently) was absent from the site during its spoiler season. That being the case, I figured there's no time like the present to discuss our thoughts on the new (and old) guild mechanics featured in the set:

Boros = Mentor

It's simple but very flavorful. It does a good job portraying Boros' Spara-esque culture. I like it.

Selesnya = Convoke
[+] Click to Show Spoiler

I love convoke. I have always loved convoke. I will continue to love convoke.

Izzet = Jump-Start
[+] Click to Show Spoiler

I'm sorely dissapointed. Retrace was a much better mechanic, in my opinion. Izzet deserves better.

Dimir = Surveil
[+] Click to Show Spoiler

Thematically, it does a good job of representing Dimir's shadowy spy network. Mechanically, its just meh.

Golgari = Undergrowth
[+] Click to Show Spoiler

I was a huge fan of scavenge. This, not so much. It feels way too broad to be a proper guild mechanic.

We have one returning mechanic, two basically returning mechanics, something that's done all the time being given a name, and one actually new thing.

In all fairness, at least the actually new thing is pretty cool. Nice to see a combat mechanic that isn't just "turn guys sideways and see what happens".

That sums it up nicely.
