Guildhall

From MTG Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The guildhalls[1][2][3][4][5][6] (or guildhomes[7]) are a 10-card mega cycle of utility lands from Ravnica block. As the name suggests, they represent the headquarter of each Ravnican guild; however, guildhalls are non-legendary.

Each land taps for {C} and has an activated ability that's thematically related to their guild, with an activation cost that requires the two colored mana of that guild as well as a varying amount of generic mana.

Examples[edit | edit source]

Example

Vitu-Ghazi, the City-Tree
Land
{T}: Add {C}.
{2}{G}{W}, {T}: Put a 1/1 green Saproling creature token onto the battlefield.

History[edit | edit source]

The first four guildhomes (from Boros, Dimir, Golgari, and Selesnya) were introduced in September 2005 with Ravnica: City of Guilds. Orzhov, Izzet, and Gruul followed in February 2006 with Guildpact. The cycle was completed in May 2006 with Dissension's inclusion of guildhalls from Azorius, Simic and Rakdos.
