How about we talk about the currently latest in the The Art of Magic The Gathering RavnicaAs with all the other s in this series of looks into the multiverse of M TG, Ravinca is an excellent book of art put together from across the main two sets of the current story arc in the card game As with the rest of the books the artwork is the best feature as well as the accompanying world building lore that you get only the briefest scraps of in the cards themselves The most of the chapters focus on each of the ten Guilds of the Cityscape plane of Ravinica After the usual M TG explanations of the colors of Magic, Planeswalkers etc come the brief overview chapter of the world of Ravnica at large The the meat of the book begins with each of the Guild focused chapters.The Azorius Senate the Blue White Lawmakers of the Plane.The Orzhov Syndicate, a White Black church front led by the greedy spirits of the long dead preying on the living followersHouse Dmir, The Black Blue spymasters guild spies, informants, assassins and others that the other guilds hire to get the dirt on each other, all the while keeping enough for themselves to make their own power plays.The Izzet League, a group of Blue Red research magicians and artificers making what they can because FOR SCIENCE led by an ancient dragon.The Cult of Rakdos, Black Red demon worshiping sadists who praise their master by offering up the most entertaining show they can.The Golgari Swarm, Black Green denizens of the deep city, sewers, and decayed areas Life and Death are the cycle they believe in.The Gruul Clans, Wild groups of Green Red savage tribes who detest the city and destroy all vestments of civilization they come across.The Boros Legion, White Red Army and righteous law enforcement of the Plane Led by Angels into glorius battle against the forces that would threaten the peace of the plane.The Selesnya Conclave, Green White the ones at peace with Nature who wish to return the city to a beautiful natural state led by a trio of dryads who interpret the voice of the World Tree.And then the Simic Combine the Green Blue biomancer opposites of the Izzet league Willing to experiment on themselves with combining each other with other lifeforms to improve themselves.The next chapter then go into some of the backstory of the underlying plot the game at large has told with the chapter Claws of the Mastermind Diving into the plot and machinations of Nicol Bolas as they come together on Ravnica leading into the next War of the Sparks set.Lastly we end at a short look at how each of the Guilds have changed over the last 14 years in the three major visits to Ravnica we have seen.And that s kind of the issue I have with the Artbooks on returning worlds It makes sense for the books to primarily focus on the newer sets to promote them, but for worlds like Dominaria and Ravnica with so much previous to draw from it would be great alone to draw from the older sets as well to see how much things have changed But overall the book is another great look at the art and lore of the current world the game is set in now.
