What: Draft–Each player gets 3 packs, opens and picks a card and passes the rest to the person next to them.  Lather, rinse and repeat until all the cards from the packs have been picked.  Take about 23-26 of the 40+ cards you get and add land to make a 40 card minimum deck. Play 3 rounds, win a round, win a pack with an option of a free draft to those who go undefeated.  Since it’s a new set, and none of us know what we are doing yet, it’s a great time for new players to come and join.

*Why do we do the prerelease randomly instead of picking them?  3 reasons.  Usually the people who are have done enough research to “know” which of the guilds is better then others are the ones who already have an advantage in building decks.  2) All the Guilds have interesting stuff, the prereleases are about having fun exploring the new set. And 3) Lovely Eventbrite decided to take the part of the ticketing site that let people pick their preferences and make it a bonus feature that almost doubles the extra fees they add for the ticketing.

Here’s what you need to get a head/catch up to the game.

Ravnica Allegiance Set overview..

Ravnica Allegiance

Ravnica Allegiance is the second set in our (re)return to the planet wide city of Ravnica.  This set brings the other 5 guilds back into the mix, each with their own color combination and special powers. (It also brings back the last five of the fetch lands…special lands that lets you go find one of two paired lands from your deck for the low, low cost of one life point) 

Emergency Powers

Azorius:  Blue and while combine with the Senate of the law.  The Azorius special new mechanic is Addendum.  These are Instants that have a special bonus surprise in the box if you cast them during the time you could cast a sorcery.

Frenzied ArynxThe Gruul (Red & Green) ‘s new mechanic reflects their aggressive ways.  Riot gives you the choice to either bring in a creature in with haste so they can attack right away, or a +1 counter. 

Zegana, Utopian SpeakerSimic (Blue & Green), the clan of growth has traditionally been all about tossing on the counters, and the new Adapt mechanic is all about adding on counters and once in a while throwing in an extra power or two for all creatures with counters on them. 

Imperious OligarchThe Orzov Syndicate (Black & White) brings in Afterlife, a mechanic that brings one (or more) 1/1 flying spirits when the creature dies.  

Rafter Demon

Finally, we have the Mad Clowns of Rakdos (Red & Black).  Their distributingly  named Spectacle.  When these spells are cast in a turn after an opponent has taken damage they get extra abilities.
