In Pit Fight, we have a Gruul bruiser (possibly Narbulg Nine Fingers, if the flavor text can be trusted) throwing down against an Orzhov priest. But that could mean anything. People are always fighting in pits.

Sure, Gruul Ragebeast could be smashing up any random building. But see the Orzhov priest in the lower right? See the carvings on the pillars? Something brought the ragebeast to this particular Orzhov building. Was it the natural war between red-green and white-black? Who can say?
