I hate to rush you but with magic returning to ravnica this year I would like for you to continue this series. I love the setting and philosophies of the guilds.

another way they tie together is not just through fear(that is a strong one make no mistake)that's just one connection two other ways these two colors connect is literally through religion hence the reason why these two colors are tied for the most clerics more so than any other color and the other is spirituality as you can see how the ancestral spirits of the Orzhov syndicate still rule the guild and the two colors also deal with spirits more so than any other color pairing and I think the ironic thing about this guild is despite being the most connected to religion the last thing that connects them insanely accurately is greed: they constantly want more, they have so much more than they'll ever need, they take from others just to fuel there own gain(taxing and mandatory tithing), they're afraid of losing what they already have, they aren't and never will be satisfied with what they already have and they part with NOTHING unless they get something in return like I said greedy as ever

I wonder how they’d play if they’d have Selysna splashed in. Tokens everywhere and whatnot. I just got into MTG and it seems like I’ve entered in at the right time. Ravnica has been easily one of the most interesting art stories thus far ( coming from yugioh) so it’s easily been one of my favourites to follow. Too bad you aren’t giving away Guilds of Ravnica or Ravnica Allegiances. I’m way more interested in continuing the story and collect all the cards. But hey Masters works I guess -_- :)

Orzhov sounds interesting.

Is it ironic that I love the gruul guild and my best friend enjoys the orshov guild decks?
Juanmax1909 (3 months ago)

Popcorn dudeguy (3 months ago)

Not sure but I doubt it!
Soetpotatis (3 months ago)
Wow, so basically I worked for the real life version of the orzhov syndicate... Hilton hotels. Everyone is there for a "common goal" but in reality you always have to watch your back not to get stabbed by people you considered good friends and colleagues only so they can rise one inch up in the ranks. No one is your friend, everyone is just looking out for themselves and their goals and ideas while trampling the goals and dreams of others without any regard. They pretend to "help" you when in reality they just trade you like a slave around and at the end of the day there is truly only one person who is happy with the situation - the CEO because he earns ridiculous amounts of money while underpaying every other member of the corporation which those members accept in hopes that they will be "noticed" and get in the big bosses favorable side when they do notice them. Absolutely disgusting company full of liars and cheats,not to mention how they love to show themselves off to the public as this benevolent and great company that cares about others and how they love building up their own bloated ego to new heights.

Orzhov: Knowing that what is best for the masses is to have the Orzhov rule them, to provide a semblance of stability and security purely so that the Orzhov can stay in power at the top of their parasitic society. A guild that creates the false pretence of security for the many in order to indefinitely benefit to few to a far greater extent.
Elijah Stevens (3 months ago)
You should do Gruul next pls
Rae Bracken (3 months ago)
*bangs fists on desk* BOROS! BOROS! BOROS!
K. Zachary Neese (4 months ago)
I don't think I agree with a lot of these videos. They somewhat approach the philosophy of the color pairings as if there is a control color within the pairing. I think that Orzhov as a guild fits this logic perfectly, but WB as a color pairing (and any of the other color pairings Wedge has analyzed) are more complex than this. To me it seems that when a card has two or more colors that that suggests a balance between those colors within the identity of the card (more symbols suggesting a higher leaning for one over the other). If the philosophy is approached in this way, it becomes clear that the relationship between WB is much more deep, and I believe this is true for all the pairings.

I'd be down for Naya
Joshua Carr (5 months ago)
when are you doing dimir, gruul and boros?
Robin Marks (5 months ago)
White is decidedly not "good". It's dogmatic and fanatical about its dichotomous morality, and will do anything in the pursuit of order and control. White is authoritarian and oppressive, not objectively "good".
Jolt237 (5 months ago)
I love these videos, they cover each guild at their core. Now all we need is Boros, Dimir and Gruul. (P.S. Please do Boros first!)
Elijah Charwyn (5 months ago)
Will you do a Dimir?
Rattlesnakemeuk (5 months ago)
Have you given up on these vids? I thought they are some of your best. I need Gruul, Boros and Dimir! Would be a great time to do it too, given that Magic is currently back on Ravnica.

I play orzhov most of the time and this describes me. I hate most people, but I don’t want power. I hate most people but use people in projects ar school
Scammbled Eggs (6 months ago)
I always play white black for some reason because all the other colours just feel. But not until now I realised that my personality relates so much to this guild.

Don't want to sleep tonight? Consider replacing the word "orzov" with American government.
Cabal Paxiarch (7 months ago)
Interesting perspective. I always thought of the Orzhov more like bankers rather than mobsters but I can see where you're coming from.
Daimen Hazard (7 months ago)
Are we getting more of these videos? Or is this a canceled series...? Wish they did Dimir next
Elle Kenrith (7 months ago)

Just missing Gruul and Boros. Yup, that's totally it *looks to both sides* no one else is missing.

where is the new color philosophy? im waiting :o
Thiago ventura de sousa (8 months ago)
Holy shit, i was just reading a book that says the exact same thing about society. Society bonds individuals by fear of the ambient, while individuals are THE object of fear of Society. SO, society bonds themselves to become fearless against individuals they don't recognize.
George Alexander (8 months ago)
Getting back into MTG, haven't picked up a card since like 1998, with my Kids. And we are loving these videos, for helping with our color picks. Can't wait for more color combos!
TheJcjonesacp (8 months ago)
what card was in 7:43?
TenRitNie (9 months ago)
Black and blue?
grndragon7777777 (10 months ago)
Thank you so much
DoomEdGamer (10 months ago)
Love the work sofar @TheManaSource, keep it up! Once you start doing 3 colors, could you do Blue White Green and Red Black Green? I plan on making a few super friends team decks and it would be interesting to see the synergies and focuses of these colors. The idea of a break down of what 3 color decks are good at might help me out with this as ive only been able to brew up mid range decks with 3 colors (which doesnt cut it with the current meta at my LGS)

Wedge is in surgery and he needs help! I’m posting this on as many videos of his that I can in hopes that some people see. We love you Wedge. https://www.gofundme.com/anthony039s-emergency-surgery-help

I have an amazing Black and White deck. I call it my Weeping Angel Deck. I steal life from my opponents. For every point of life I gain target opponent loses that much life. I have life link, extort, two sorin's vengeance, and two defiant bloodlords.
Anonymous Eldritch (10 months ago)
My favorite guild, once again thank you for unveiling the inner machination of the guilds color pie. However once again by mentioning all sorts of non-Orzhov W/B cards you keep pushing that all a color pair can be is it's Ravnica guild.
Emmanuel Florez (11 months ago)
W-where is dimir :(
Zennuts1 (11 months ago)

There's no dimir in this playlist
Jack Pabich (11 months ago)
So how does lifegain work with white? Like, what is the lore behind that? I can see how black is greedy enough to steal the life from others, but curious about white. Maybe just because they are known for life gain? Unrelated point, Gruul would beat Orzhov in the lore then, I'm assuming. Just because the Orzhov leaders seem to have more of the intimidating factor rather than weapon power. Keep up the great videos!
Roland Simmons (11 months ago)
Dimir please
Jiub Ninebark (11 months ago)
Orzhov is my niche but angus mackenzie is my champ. ENCHANTMENT!!! For days and thumbs up if you get the reference lol

Once you finish the Ravica Guilds, do you have any plan to talk about the Alara Shards, Tarkir Clans and the 4 color combos?
Decideo Mirage (1 year ago)
In a search that has zero results, in a window that was never made, is the video that doesn't exist.
Jackie Singleton (1 year ago)
So the Orzhov is basically the Republican model. Rich evil at the top exploiting the fear and need to belong of the masses to maintain their hold on power. P

Gruul really does need to be covered next

Orzhov was always my second favorite guild. The Extort mechanic was insane
Emperor Rhogar (1 year ago)
Do Boros.
David Rice (1 year ago)
Great! Now you just gotta do Boros, Gruul, and Dimir

Orzhov == League of Villains
Felix Rivera (1 year ago)
I always noticed that my bw is very slow and has little punch in 1v1. Now in any multiplayer format that draws agro away from me it has always been rediculously strong, like I broke my friend group and had to shelve the deck for a while because blood artist is super rude when tokens are dying en mass
Reuben Oakley (1 year ago)
Personally, my Orzhov deck is one of my fastest.
Ian Astraquillo (1 year ago)
Really awesome videos Wedge! Please do the Boros Legion next! =)
Joshua Gutierrez (1 year ago)
So what would you call a deck that runs white black and blue? I think red blue black is called grixis.
hiddennijafist (1 year ago)
while I can why white would often be seen as the "pawn" in this pairing, it can also be the other way around; where one's cause is so noble or necessary that it must be achieved no matter what the cost. Sorin for example, he seems to truly believe in protecting his plane from whatever threats that may arise, and will use every move necessary - whether it be turning against his own kind or destroying his own creations to defend the many.
EloquentTroll (1 year ago)
Not Gruul, then why do I care?
