Putting the Guilds in WUBRG order[edit source]

I just noticed that none of the three Ravnica blocks use a unified order for the Guilds. Some seem to use alphabetical order, while other use a logic i can't figure out. I'd like to propose that we use the official WUBRG order accross all pages for the three blocks (including cards cycles) meaning allied colored pairs first followed by ennemy-colored pairs.
Giving us:
Azorius {W/U}
Dimir {U/B}
Rakdos {B/R}
Gruul {R/G}
Selesnya {G/W}
Orzhov {W/B}
Izzet {U/R}
Golgari {B/G}
Boros {R/W}
Simic {G/U}

As it is a huge change (in volume of edits) i'd like to have a second opinion/consensus before going forward-- 16:38, 27 November 2018 (UTC)

I am actually torn on that. I thought about this quite often. Currently we are following the order used by Wizards, which - and I agree with you here - has no rhyme or reason to it. Changing everything to WUBRG order is certainly easier and more consistent, but it also losses the information, that the original releases were quite odd from the the guild sorting.
I am very open both variants. - Yandere Sliver H09 symbol.png 00:47, 28 November 2018 (UTC)

I waited a few days to see if anyone else wanted to weigh in on this, but i guess i'm gonna go ahead and start organizing the guilds. Haaring what you said however, i think i will add a sentence along the line of "these guilds were originally presented in that order" to preserve the original wizard wonkyness. -- 13:26, 12 December 2018 (UTC)

Sounds great! - Yandere Sliver H09 symbol.png 13:41, 12 December 2018 (UTC)
