  • Boros or Lorehold
  • Izzet or Prismri
  • Golgari or Witherbloom
  • Orzhov or Silverquill
  • Simic or Quandrix

Which do you prefer?

And I suppose bonus, the Wedges of Tarkir or the Wedges of Ikoria? Though those are fairly similar in nature.

I think, in time, enough differences can be made that a player can say they have a Boros deck and another player say they have a Lorehold deck, and everybody knows that despite being in the same colors, the decks operate differently.

"Oh nice, so you go wide and engage in brutal combat?"

"Yeah, idk I just love tokens and bashing face. So what kinds of sorcery and artifact tricks do you employ?"

That'd be nice. :)

Honestly I like the names of the guilds better, but some cool mechanics have come along with the color combinations in Strixhaven. I hope they will make the commands for the remaining combinations, as those are my favorite cards from the set.

For the time being it is still, Orzhov for me.

I do like the school name, "Silverquill" though.

Simic is far superior to quandrix for me. Although, they feel too similar the flavor of simic mashing creature types is my favorite

Color combinations are color combinations. In my mind, STX just added to the identity of RW (as an example)--which is what many of us tend to refer to as Boros, never mind what the colors are actually doing.

The names of the guilds are so ingrained in my mind, I automatically call a deck by its guild name.
