Information
Plane Ravnica

Although the Selesnya Conclave of Ravnica believe that power is not centered in any one location, the massive world-tree Vitu-Ghazi still serves as the focus and guildhall of the guild.[1]

Description[edit | edit source]

Vitu-Ghazi's trunk acts as the cathedral where worshippers come from all around Ravnica, and also serves as home to the guildmaster Trostani and the Dryad Conclave.[2] At night, its branches of Vitu-Ghazi are aglow with firefly light.[3]

History[edit | edit source]

Vitu-Ghazi was where Mat'Selesnya slept, and was uprooted partially by Szadek so he could drink Mat'Selesnya. It was also severely damaged by the nephilim, and in the fight between Project Kraj and Rakdos. Nonetheless, it still seemed to stand proud.[3] Its mending were however superficial. Beneath the bark it was fragile, with stress fractures running through its branches, and hidden support struts barely able to take the weight.[4]

War of the Spark[edit | edit source]

During the War of the Spark, Vitu-Ghazi was animated by Nissa Revane into an enormous elemental that aided the troops fighting the Dreadhorde.[5] Vitu-Ghazi was defeated by the God-Eternals when they first entered Ravnica. Rhonas tore out one of its arms and Nissa had to relinquish her control and the elemental collapsed.[6] The fallen Vitu-Ghazi is now dormant.[7]
