The new Magic: The Gathering card game expansion set, Guildpact, brought three new guilds packed full of deadly cards, huge creatures, strange powers and wicked combos to the game. The Gruul are all about monsters, the Izzet blast their opponents with strange spells, and the Orzhov leech the life points from their enemies. We review all three new heme decks right here!

Magic: Guildpact: Code of the Orzhov Deck Review

This Black and White Orzhov deck is a weird one. It's all about blocking your opponent's creatures, making them discard cards, and slowly draining their life away with spells and enchantments. It's a tricky deck to use properly, but a skilled player can have a lot of fun with it.

Code of the Orzhov Thumbs Up:

  • Lots of ways to gain life.
  • The deck box holds cards properly.
  • Code of the Orzhov Thumbs Down:

  • No big creatures.
  • Poisonbelly Ogre = useless!
  • Unless you're a good player, it's too weird to duel with.
  • Code of the Orzhov Deck Rating:

    Magic: Guildpact: Gruul Wilding Deck Review

    Got Red and Green? This Gruul deck does! It also has strong creatures, and creature enchantments to power them up. This deck is 'da bomb when it comes to a creature-smackdown, just can't do anything else. The Gruul Wilding is definitely the best Theme Deck for new players to start with.

    Gruul Wilding Thumbs Up:

  • Borborygmos! This huge monster is awesome.
  • The deck box holds cards properly.
  • Gruul Wilding Thumbs Down:

  • Nothing but big, stompy, creatures.
  • Gruul Wilding Deck Rating:

    Magic: Guildpact: Izzet Gizmometry Deck Review

    This deck mixes Red and Blue to give you a dozen new ways to blow your opponent apart with wicked spells! There are also cards to counter your opponent's spells and draw more cards so you'll always have more spells to cast. Unfortunately, the deck only has nine creatures and they aren't very powerful, so it can get stomped flat pretty easily.

    Izzet Gizmometry Thumbs Up:

  • You can draw tons of cards!
  • The deck box actually holds cards properly.
  • Izzet Gizmometry Thumbs Down:

  • Barely any creatures!
  • Requires some skill to use properly.
  • Izzet Gizmometry Deck Rating:
