Fight For Your Guild
Tensions build on the city-world of Ravnica, where each guild plies its own agenda to outsmart and outmaneuver the others. Uncover the remaining five guilds with the Gatecrash set so that your guild can be the first to unravel Ravnica’s deep-rooted secrets.
- What guilds are in Gatecrash?
The Orzhov Syndicate, House Dimir, The Gruul Clans, The Boros Legion, and the Simic Combine
- What keywords are new to Gatecrash?
Each guild has its own unique keyworded ability.
Orzhov Syndicate, Extort – Creature Ability (Whenever you cast a spell, you may pay B/W. If you do, each opponent loses 1 life and you gain that much life.)
House Dimir, Cipher - Sorcery Ability (Then you may exile this spell card encoded on a creature you control. Whenever that creature deals combat damage to a player, its controller may cast a copy of the encoded card without paying its mana cost.)
Gruul Clans, Bloodrush – Creature Ability ([Cost] Discard this card: Target attacking creature gets [ability and/or power/toughness boost])
Boros Legion, Battalion – Creature Ability (Whenever [this creature] and at least two other creatures attack, [ability triggers])
Simic Combine, Evolve - Creature Ability (Whenever a creature enters the battlefield under your control, if that creature has greater power or toughness than this creature, put a +1/+1 counter on this creature.)
- How do you draft Gatecrash?
Gatecrash is a large size set, and is meant to be drafted alone (three packs of Gatecrash). It is expected that when the third set in the Return to Ravnica block releases, the draft format will change to the standard “one pack of each set” format.

For the Gatecrash Prerelease, you’ll choose from five Guild Prerelease Packs. The options (while supplies last) are Orzhov, Dimir, Gruul, Boros, and Simic. Each Guild Prerelease Pack contains five Gatecrash booster packs, a guild-specific booster pack, a special alternate-art prerelease card unique to each guild, an achievement card, a Spindown life counter, a guild symbol sticker, and a letter from the guild’s leader. For this event, players may use the promo card included with the Guild Prerelease Pack in their tournament deck.
