Mosaic-a-Week: Izzet Keyrune, Izzet Signet

izzet-signet-1izzet-keyrune-1I didn’t use to be a big fan of red, mostly as I started as a big fan of blue. I think, moreso in the early days of Magic, there was this ingrained hatred of one’s opposing colors, epitomized more by red and blue than many of the other colors. In more recent times, I’ve really come to like red as the counterpoint to blue, that’s why the Izzet guild is my favorite of Ravnica’s guilds, and why Izzet Keyrune and Izzet Signet are the next pair of mosaics.

While I like the Azorius for the wholesome denial and deflect aspects, Izzet epitomizes card draw, and is an aspect from which I have always gotten good mileage. If one thing has excited me about this latest Return to Ravnica, it’s thinking about the question, “What would my Niv-Mizzet deck be like with two different Niv-Mizzets?” Fun times…
