Ravnica was released late 2005 and is one of the most interesting sets in Magic the Gathering. Ravnica is built upon colors working together, and more appropriately has places cut off for this. In this block there are 10 different guilds that work to fend off the other groups.
Boros Legion (White/Red)
This guild is a huge portion of power and honor thrown together. They are the peacekeepers of the Ravnica realm and are not afraid to harm others to do so. Their leader of the guild is Agrus Kos, Wojek Veteran.
Golgari Swarm (Black/Green)
This guild is all about death and how it affects the natural life style. This guild, however is in contest with itself. As of now the guild is ruled over by Sisters of Stone Death however, it is being challenged by Savra, Queen of the Golgari.
Selesnya Conclave (White/Green)
This guild is the dedicates its own existence to peace and balance of the Ravnica. However, they are less brutal with their position and power than the Boros Legion. They are lead the Dryads of the Chorus of the Conclave and their champion is Tolsimir Wolfblood.
Dimir House (Black/Blue)
This guild is the embodiment of the discord of Ravnica. Most of the residents in Ravnica don't even know this guild exists, making them very sneaky and very dark. The other guilds, however, know they exists and they know their ways of getting what they want. This guild is lead by Szadek, Lord of Secrets and their champion is Circu, Dimir Lobotomist.
Orzhov Syndicate (White/Black)
This guild focuses on religion more than the other 9. This guild is more like a business guild in the selling and buying of more religious and mystical items. This guild is lead by the Ghost Council of Orzhova and their champion is Teysa, Orzhov Scion.
Izzet League (Blue/Red)
This guild is more scientific than the others. This guild is often found experimenting with different chemicals and altering shape. This guild is responsible for the technology in the Ravnica realm, and therefore the more needed guild. Their leader is a very brilliant, but egotistical Dragon Wizard named Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind. Their champions are Tibor and Lumia.
Gruul Clan (Black/Green)
This clan is very odd. Their original point was to defend and protect all that is nature and protect those who inhabit it. However, over the years they have changed. Their valiant nature has turned them dark and horrid. They now have more of an interest in destroying things, rather than protecting them. This could be because of a need for revenge against the plane of Ravnica for their change, but it is unknown. They are lead by Borborygmos and their champion is Ulasht, the Hate Seed.
Azorius Senate (Blue/White)
The Azorius are the lawmakers of the Ravnica plane and are the head of the government and the government itself. They are bent on making any type of action illegal and say that the law must be held up at all costs. They are lead by Grand Arbiter Augustin IV and their champion is a sphinx named Isperia the Inscrutable.
Rakdos Cult (Black/Red)
This guild is the more dark side of Ravnica. This cult is focused on the destruction and demolition of the plane. The group is focused on mayhem and blood. Their definition of a "good time" is a lot of blood splatter and gore. Being this way, they are trained to be powerful mercenary's and assassin's. Their leader is Rakdos the Defiler who is a blood thirsty demon with dark plans for Ravnica and their champion is Lyzolda, the Blood Witch.
Simic Combine (Blue/Green)
This guild is more like Gruul and Izzet thrown together. This guild was originally bent on protecting the natural ecosystem but changed into a guild bent on experimenting with creatures, mutating them so they can not just survive, but also thrive in the harsh Ravnica jungles. They are lead by Momir Vig, Simic Visionary, a deranged elf who experiments day in and day out. Their champion is Experiment Kraj.
