Tabulation of the Guilds

Reddit

Challenge

Win the game as quickly as possible using only cards in Return to Ravnica from a single guild. To make it interesting, you may not use either Fencing Ace or Giant Growth.

Assumptions

New Prahv Guildmage
A card counts as being from your chosen guild if it either has your guild’s watermark or if it’s one of your guild’s colors or colorless and has no watermark. Watermarks are visible in the cards’ text boxes (for example, New Prahv Guildmage has the Azorius watermark). You must choose a guild in Return to Ravnica (Azorius, Izzet, Rakdos, Golgari, or Selesnya).

You have perfect luck. For example, even after you shuffle your library, it’s ordered how you want. You may not assume anything about your opponent’s hand or library except that he won’t do anything relevant.

Winning “quickly” refers to both the turn of the game and whether you’re playing or drawing first. Turn three on the draw is quicker than turn four on the play but not as quick as turn three on the play.

You may only use four copies of any individual card other than basic lands.
