When the Guilds of Ravnica buy-a-box promo was leaked earlier this week, fans learned that one of Ravnica's guild mechanics, Convoke, will return. This left us wondering if Wizards of the Coast will just bring back old mechanics or also introduce new ones for the upcoming set. It turns out that we're having a mix of both. 

A fan asked Mark Rosewater whether the upcoming Ravnica sets will have new mechanics or just returning, and the Magic's Head Designer simply answered, "a mix" on his Blogatog.

So that could mean that some guilds might have new mechanics and some guilds might have returning mechanics. The buy-a-box promo card belongs to Selesnya and it has the Green-White guild's classic mechanic Convoke so we already know that's returning. Maybe each guild will have a returning and new mechanic.

Guilds of Ravnica will feature five guilds: Selesnya (green-white), Boros (red-white), Golgari (black-green), Izzet (blue-red), and Dimir (blue-black).

The following set, Ravnica Allegiance will feature the other five guilds: Azorius (blue-white), Rakdos (black-red), Gruul (red-green), Simic (green-blue), and Orzhov (black-white). It will be released in January 2019.
