A Rakdos Life for Me

Look at my awesome cameo in my sister’s magic the gathering article 😀

This is old, but my sister mentioned me in a Magic the Gathering article she wrote.  It gives me the warm and fuzzies ❤  (although I corrected her in that she wrote ‘Rakdos for my bold and exuberant little sister’ whereas it should read ‘Rakdos for my destructive and pyromaniac little sister’).

For those nonplayers, in Magic, there are 5 guilds: Azorius Senate, Golgari Swarm, Izzet League, Cult of Rakdos, and Selesnya Conclave.  As my sister describes in her article, each guild has a particular flavor and personality.  I instantly associated with the Cult of Rakdos because a. it’s a CULT, b. it’s red/black, and c. it’s fast and aggressive.  The funny part is I’m still a little hesitant while playing it, which sometimes leads to my downfall.  Basically I need to learn to go all out until I have nothing left, which is my philosophy in life anyway.  It’s interesting how something as superficial as a guild in a card game forces you to evaluate your own identity.  Sometimes I wish that I was a little slower, a little better at planning, to have the ability to play more guilds.  Hopefully that will come with time, for what is maturity if not learning to adapt and change?

Also, you should go read her newest one, cause she’s awesome!
