You can absolutely make a Rakdos flavortext deck, but that's cheating

Surprisingly, you can't do Flavortext Constructed for most of the Ravnican guild leaders. There are enough cards for Lazav and Niv-Mizzet, though, and you can do a combined Aurelia and Tajic deck.

Here's a Tahngarth deck, by request from @ajanionthespot

4x Charging Rhino
4x Ferocity
4x Flowstone Wyvern
4x Hand to Hand
4x Hurloon Shaman
4x Maniacal Rage
4x Mogg Sentry
4x Overrun
2x Squee, Goblin Nabob
2x Tahngarth, Talruum Hero

4x Copperline Gorge
4x Game Trail
4x Rootbound Crag
4x Forest
8x Mountain

@DialMforMara Ok, these would actually be a great way to introduce characters and get players caught up on their lore, if wizards sold these as pre-cons.

@ajanionthespot they really would! I wish this was what Planeswalker decks were.

Here's a Mirri deck

4x Elven Warhounds (3G)
4x Gallantry (1W)
4x Keen Sense (G)
4x Llanowar Druid (1G)
4x Llanowar Sentinel (2G)
2x Mirri, Cat Warrior (1GG)
2x Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist (1GW)
2x Mirri's Guile (G)
2x Revive (1G)
4x Skyshroud Ranger (G)
4x Vitalize (G)

4x Fortified Village
4x Razorverge Thicket
4x Sunpetal Grove
12x Forest

Turns out you can make a flavortext deck with any arbitrary planeswalker or classic Weatherlight crew member. Who should I try next?

I also made an Ertai deck, because he's the other character I could think of that has lots of flavor text.

4x Counterspell
4x Ertai's Familiar
2x Ertai, Wizard Adept
4x Flux
2x Fool's Tome
4x Gaseous Form
4x Oraxid
4x Thalakos Seer
4x Time Ebb
4x Tolarian Entrancer

4x Halimar Depths
4x Memorial to Genius
4x Skyline Cascade
2x Teferi's Isle
10x Island

Here's my Jaya deck. Wondering if I should add some of the lands that filter for :red: :red: , but I'm not sure how many I can add before they interfere with Valakut. (Did you know Valakut isn't legendary?)

2x Fire Elemental
4x Flare
4x Gorilla Shaman
4x Incinerate
2x Jaya Ballard
2x Jaya Ballard, Task Mage
4x Jaya's Immolating Inferno
4x Lava Burst
2x Meteor Shower
4x Simian Spirit Guide
4x Sizzle

4x Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle
20x Mountains

Time for a Random Scryfall Brew!

The seed was Searing Spear, which has kind of quippy flavor text, so I think I'm gonna make a Jaya deck.

That is, I'm going to make a burn deck in which all the cards mention Jaya Ballard.

Speaking of things being salvaged from Tumblr...

In my head, this a cartoon. Bolas and Ajani are playing at an LGS. Bolas draws a card. It's Conflux. Music starts playing as he looks at it.

Update: 3-0 in Un-draft, and I won the last round without Mary O’Kill showing up at all. Feeling pretty good.

@orb_warded_kor_warlord my fanwalker saves lives on Ravnica using healing spells she learned from Ojutai’s pet scholars

I like the idea of Planeswalkers not always being straightforwardly super-powerful mages; their strength comes from learning techniques across the multiverse, and always being able to surprise locals

Like, maybe Tezzeret isn't that great of an artificer by Kaladeshi standards, and he's just coasting on showing off all his alien tech
