Izzet Guildmage sketch by Jim Murray
Izzet Guildmage final art by Jim Murray
The mechanics of the card, of course, leave you thinking, "What two-mana instants and sorceries can I copy with this?" You may already be familiar with the usual instant suspects at converted mana cost two and under, due to Isochron Scepter, but you might want to take a stroll through Gatherer for another look at the sorceries...
Of course, at this writing, Gatherer doesn't show off the goods from Guildpact. Stay tuned until after the prerelease for that.
Are there other examples of "smart and a little crazy" in Izzet art? Do you think we'd put that question there if the answer weren't "oh heck yes"?
