Well, let's see.

• It can't be Gruul, because they have no substance to them and are just UNGA BUNGA
• It can't be Selesnya, because they have no substance to them and are just boring bland holy men
•It can't be Rakdos, because they're LOLSODRANDUM intelligent nihilistic and with a wicked sense of humor led by a fucking demon, literally the 12 year old Deviantartist faction
• It can't be Azorius because they exist solely to be as bland as possible and smother fun
• It can't be Dimir because they don't exist
• It can't be Golgari because they're literally just uppity trashmen and the entire character of their guild is totally unfocused due to trying to reconcile that fact with the need to make them seem cool and badass
• It can't be Izzet because they're the SCIENCE!!!!!! xD faction led by Diet Bolas™.

So, Simic, Orzhov or Boros. You've got actual scientists doing actual science things instead of being Rick & Morty tier random, or you've got a peacekeeping force with interesting internal politics and an actual organizational structure, or you've got basically The Order Of Mammon. Take your pick.

The Boros Legion is shit because there's nothing red about them. White is already zealous, white is already passionate about enacting justice. There can't be anything red about them because white is diametrically opposed to EVERYTHING red stands for, there's no red elements you can add without depleting it of white. Militancy is white. Extermination of the wicked is white. Boros's keywords, Radiance, and Battalion, are both white effects. Boros is a white guild.
The only reason they're red/white is because their cards are.

Eh. Vigilantism is pretty firmly a white thing. What makes the Boros red is that they're actively provoking fights. Characters like Batman and Superman are also vigilants but not the least bit red. Well, Batman pretends to be red as Bruce Wayne, but his actual personality is more WU.

It's more they can't be done together as an institution. White and red has to be the individual who is trying to be a greater whole on their own. Vigilantism captures that pretty well.
A group trying to be a greater whole all individually? It's just white!

>> No.55802244

Umm yes, i guess you could make the group not be very united? Like italian partisans come to mind for me, they were very unorganized(not completely of course), had many different factions with different ideals and every little squad was kind of free to do whatever, they were definitely red in behaviour, but i would call them white in their ideals.

>choosing any of the guilds
The guilds have done more harm than good for the average citizen. They're rotten to the core, and Ravnica needs to be cleansed of these organizations of oppression.
Orzhov have enslaved practically every other citizen with their loan shark tactics. They're pretty much a criminal organization of nepotists that use a false religion to keep raking in wealth.
The Golgari only feed the poor in hopes that they would join their ranks, dead or alive. That wouldn't be so bad, except the swarm also like to spread disease around and drag hapless citizens into their filth holes.
Simic and Izzet waste time doing dangerous shit that endangers the city. They always ask themselves if they can, but they never ask themselves if they should.
Boros and Azorius pick away our freedoms in order to achieve peace and order, while turning a blind eye to organizations that "legally" abuse the citizens. They can't get their ethics and priorities straight.
Selesnya are a brainwashing nature cult that want to make the world a better place only for themselves. How are they any different from Boros and Azorius?
Rakdos are the worst. They torture, rape, maim, kill, and vandalize anyone and everyone. They claim it's to keep their demon asleep, but I believe that they only exist so the Boros and Azorius can point at them to justify their oppression.
You think that the Dimir are harmless, but they are the most dangerous. All the other guilds have made their goals clear, but the Dimir murder, steal, extort, and spy on others for unexplained reasons.

To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to understand the Firemind. The science is extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp of metamagic most of the spellcrafting will go over a typical mage's head. There’s also Niv Mizzet's nihilistic outlook, which is deftly woven into his characterisation- his personal philosophy draws heavily from ancient Ravnican philosophy, for instance. The guildmages understand this stuff; they have the intellectual capacity to truly appreciate the complexity of these sorceries, to realise that they’re not just explosive- they say something deep about LIFE. As a consequence people who dislike the Izzet truly ARE idiots- of course they wouldn’t appreciate, for instance, the humour in Niv Mizzet’s existential catchphrase “(Z–>)90º – (E–N2W)90ºt = 1,” which itself is a cryptic reference to himself. I’m smirking right now just imagining one of those addlepated simpletons scratching their heads in confusion as his genius wit unfolds itself onto the city of Ravnica. What fools.. how I pity them.

And yes, by the way, i DO have an Izzet Signet tattoo. And no, you cannot see it. It’s for the ladies’ eyes only- and even then they have to demonstrate that they’re within 5 IQ points of my own (preferably lower) beforehand. Nothin personnel kid

That chart would be perfect if it used the Tarkir names instead of the old ones nobody knows.

And as far as philosophy the best bet is lloking at the Shards of Alara and Khanates of Tarkir. Tri-color doesn't get a lot of exploration, especially wedges, because it is often hard to unite the philosphies into something solid and meanigful.

If anything that troll chart with "What your color combination says about you" is probably the most helpful thing.

People really like to forget the fact that what's reflected in the cards are the things most suited to battles and magic.
That's why red, the color of emotion, is almost always shown as rage.

Each guild has the extremes and their more civilian side. Low-tier Rakdos members can be anything from average bartenders to strippers.
Boros isn't just the legion, though it is 99% of it.

That being said it feels like the far end of the spectrum was really forced so that there would be no "good" guild. Like how Selesyna is shown to be really caring and kind to all walks of life and they suddenly tagged in that mind control shit to keep everyone in line as an afterthought

the problem with wedges/shards is that they're also influenced by wich colour is the central one.
e.g. in Tarkir, Sultai are pictured like some decadent empire because black is the central color, but their philosophy could change if G or U was. Probably if G was the central colour (as everyone pictured for the BUG shard before Tarkir), there would be less emphasis on the power structure and hidden schemes and more on the natural selection typical of Green. Sultai would probably look more like a cult or a Golgari-like hive, with a stronger ideology and a more stable hierarchy based on strenght and wits.

As a consequence people who dislike Rick & Morty truly ARE idiots- of course they wouldn’t appreciate, for instance, the humour in Rick’s existential catchphrase “Wubba Lubba Dub Dub,” which itself is a cryptic reference to Turgenev’s Russian epic Fathers and Sons.
