Welcome to the Izzet! Just take a look below to see what our members are posting, and if you feel like you want to get in on the conversation, you can easily join or become a friend!
How to Join
Simply post in our thread. You will be inserted into the test subject pool, which is a sort of temporary membership. If you are inactive for more than a week without prior notice during this period your membership may be nullified. If after a month you have proven to be an active and contributing member to the clan (This should be easy.), you will be promoted to apprentice and become a real member of the clan.
How to become a friend:
If you wish to be a friend, simply make a post (A reason would be nice too or you'll have to deal with an awful pun.) and you will be friendified.
On November 25, 2005, the Izzet clan was founded by the esteemed Masterbeeble with the allure of the new guild coming in Guildpact inspiring the imagination of many members of this forum. When the membership kept growing, it became clear that the U/R color combination was well loved by the MTG Salvation community. Oasis, Canada Man, and Wuffles all took their turns in leading the clan until just before Time Spiral came out.
On August 20, 2006, the clan came near death. Our most active members simply disappeared and the posting crawled to a minimum. Now that Ravnica was old news, the excitement just seemed gone. But thanks to our most dedicated members, the clan was able to return to greatness and holds a strong position to this day, earning Clan of the Year 2008 honors. Clearly, magic players love the allure of the colors blue and red.

This is thread number 27.
When someone expresses a desire to join the clan, they become a test subject. If they maintain active posting habits, they become an apprentice and gain voting privileges becoming a true member of the clan. Whenever someone becomes a member of the clan, that member starts as an Apprentice. In the future, if that member proves him or herself to be valuable, then that member may be promoted to the position of Acolyte when there is an opening, such as when another Acolyte leaves the clan or a new High Mage is promoted. Likewise, an Acolyte can be promoted to the rank of High Mage when either a current High Mage leaves the clan or there are too many members for the system to support without another High Mage. Each High Mage may have at most one Acolyte and one Apprentice.
Although the Cult of Rakdos has fallen, we will never forget our comrades. We remain allies with House Dimir and out proud to announce our newly forged alliance with Clan Mono Black!

1. A lot of people would say "Hey I wanna join!" and then never come back. That way, these people don't get added to our Erratic Portal, which is large enough as is. Just keep posting and you'll earn your apprenticeship.
2. I Want to get into EDH... Build me a Norin the Wary deck.

OK, it's vote time again! I don't see a problem with nominating every apprentice...
Acolyte of Destruction Vote:
Polls close Wednesday around noon EST.
Ratoly is the only name that stands out to me. I've seen RFJ has recently returned, but his inactivity-stint outweighs the amount of time he's been here. Call me inattentive, but I don't think I've seen kaipalin around for some time... but then, this wouldn't be the first time I forgot about the existence of certain apprentices.
Ratoly is the only name that stands out to me, as I think he's been around a bit longer than Luck, no? Or am I again demonstrating my lack of attention to apprentices?

Yes, you can vote for yourself.
Oh well, in that case, I'll throw in my vote for Ravus.
Quote from wamyc »
@Ravus: Don't feel bad, I usually don't get to post until page 6 or something lame like that.
Eh? I think you've got the thing I was half-*****ing about backwards. I was exclaiming that I am usually much too slow to get around to the first page as of late (ah, I recall a time when I was nabbing those first posts... I'm starting to feel like an oldtimer... :ugh:).
