Probably the guildmage thaty synergizes the best with old ravnica cards.
Limited allstar from day one. 
I love it. I want a playset of the promo version.
=0 I love you Simic. Get in my experiment Kraj EDH
this is probably the best guildmage of all the guilds, its really good synergy with the guild mechinic
Another useful guildmage.  Quite nice.
Y hallo thar Sage of Fables. I don't mind paying colored mana to draw to offset the fact that the body itself is cheaper, and I like how you can activate the first ability multiple times before bringing out some creatures.

Also useful for keeping your evolve engine running (no matter which ability you use).
Incredible guildmage that I think may be the one to beat.  I'm finding my original thoughts on Simic to be completely opposite of what I though previously.  This alone is worth trying to make work.

Also, that promo version.  Where do I get it when GTC comes out?
Love.

It's the Game Day promo.  Feb 13-14.
It enables evolve intwo different ways: Making incoming creatures stronger, or weakening an evolve creature to draw a card (and then be pumped back upwhen a new creature enters the field).

I'm excited.

It would have been cool if the art on the regular card was used for the full art version, it looks cooler imho. Favourite of the Guildmages by far right now.

Watching sequels to really good films is like visiting a bollock kicking parlour, paying your money and then proceeding to get your bollocks kicked...then leaving and returning at a later date to repeat the process. -iamthehollow

This is not Selesnya Guildmage, but it's close. Very powerful in Limited.

It's not the buy a box promo card because that's the nightveil spectre.  This is probably one of the  prerelease promos.
Next thing you will tell me Browbeat is bad.

Three ways, actually.  It's a 2/2 creature on turn 2, which is what the 1-drop evolve creatures want.

But yes, 2 mana to draw a card at instant speed is incredibly efficient.

Cats land on their feet. Toast lands peanut butter side down. A cat with toast strapped to its back will hover above the ground in a state of quantum indecision.

Holy balls, I'm going to game day. This card makes me love life.

Another interesting card with Animar.  Take off any extra counters to draw cards!
Yet another card to make the Melvins in the crowd cream themselves.

I love you GTC!

Isn't it great to be a Melvin right now? I'm practically mouthbreathing to snap up 4 of these on Game Day. The fact that it doesn't tap to day anything is my favorite part though.

It's almost enough to make me want to seriously play Gojira

I agree. I originally thought this set was going to be a disappointment. After the past week or so of spoilers I have completely turned around though.

Even if 9/10ths of the card in GTC are unplayable jank, the Melvin in me will still call this my favorite set to be released in a long time.

I'm not entirely sure, but I think somebody in WotC got the memo "DON'T MAKE CARDS DELIBERATELY TO BE GOOD", because these cards are just wonderfully complicated and situational which in a tournament scene means stronger sideboarding decisions, and thus more variety in what is viable. But none of the cards spoiled thus far are outright "bad", just situational to varying degrees. And that makes me very happy.

Even most of the cards that I consider to be complete jank are appealing to me simply because they have interesting mechanics involved with them. I like to see R&D plumbing the depths of what they can get away with mechanically without making things overly complicated.

I am even excited for cards I never intend to actually play at all. Like the :B::W: Angel, it just makes the Melvin in me all giddy inside.

Not to mention the guild mechanic (battalion being the only one I really dislike, which is mostly the Spike in me talking) are on the Melvin train too.

"I have existed from the morning of the world and I shall exist until the last star falls from the night. Although I have taken the form of Gaius Caligula, I am all men as I am no man and therefore I am a God."
Very sweet.
this is beautiful because you can spend 8 mana to give 1 creature a +4/+4 this turn or spend 2 mana to get 4 creatures +1/+1 this turn. win-win. Also this GUARANTEES that your creatures always evolve(as long as you have the mana) 
Boy, do I love this card.  I thought  the simic guildmage would have an abillity to help evolve, but two!!
The art is aslo very nice. It looks like I will be going to the game day.
Very good chance this ends up as one of my favorite cards in the set. I love everything about it.

It also helps break through stalls really hard if you find yourself with a few evolve creatures that don't really need all those +1/+1 counters anymore.  The mid to late game pure card advantage this provides is incredible. 

Or just pay for the first ability, drop a bunch of low costers, and be ensured to have tons of counters to draw off of later on. 

In short, I'm digging this card.  So far my favorite guildmage of the Ravnica block.  Not even a comparison.
This is just beautiful.  Perfect abilities for a UG creature to have, and its synergy to the Evolve mechanic overall is just brilliant.  Melvins everywhere can die happy.

Just another reason why Simic is my favorite guild, especially in GTC.
good and cheap activations are good.
Lorescale Coatl is going to love this guy. Looks like I'll have to rebuild my UG deck come February.
so much love.
Strangleroot Geist and Vorapede have a new friend. 
I can't decide which art I prefer. Because both are just great.

This is a very powerful guildmage, probably the best one par Selesnya's. Bomby in Limited at the very least. Constructed playable?

Constructed playable?



Yes.
AWESOME! What more can be said?
damn im going simic for the pre release. simic and then maybe gruul, or dimir, or boros but not orzhov :P
I play for fun
I like this one, I'm always a fan of drawing cards.

                                                                                                                                                                                        <----- Loser.

I'm sensing a discrepancy in the RTR block guildmages. This one seems to be by far the most playable one yet.
A note for evolve: Entering with a +1/+1 counts as putting a +1/+1 on, so Fathom Mage loves it.
Entering with a +1/+1 counts as entering with the increased value of power and toughness, so you can use it to make a smaller creature big enough to trigger evolve.

This is truly awesome for evolution.

I love you GTC!



I always loved the Simic guild.

Thanks for delivering, WotC ^_^
