This week on Limited Resources Marshall and Luis take the first dive into Guilds of Ravnica! First they start off by going in depth on the key mechanic for each guild, and then the guys give you their first take on the broad strategies for the new set!

I think it’s wrong to compare jumpstart to flashback. It’s more like making your hand split cards. Rather then getting card advantage you’re getting access to an effect which is sweet.
I’d like to see a whole show dedicated to finding language for build-around mechanics. As in this episode, the questions of “What are the payoffs?” and “What are the enablers?” come up quite frequently. It might be nice to create a framework for categorizing different types of build-arounds. (You actually came close here, talking about Dimir vs. Golgari around the 40:00 mark.) Then we could have a pithy way to talk about these things, a la quadrant theory, the vanilla test, or CABS vs. UBER. Just a thought. 🙂
Nice work as always, looking forward to the set reviews!
