Hello fellow Vorthos. It has been a while since I have posted anything on here. One of my more popular posts was back with Magic Origins where I took each of the cards and put them in lists of which Plane each card was representing.
This time around, since the mechanics article for Ixalan, for your viewing pleasure here, revealed the different factions for Ixalan, I thought of reviving this type of thread, and organizing the cards into their different factions. This is all open for debate and re arranging, my hope is to provide a way for people that like to stick to a faction to be able to collect and talk about all the cards of that faction.
As a disclaimer, rather than posting the the photos of each card, I'll just provide the link for you to view the card, if this is also an incorrect method of posting then I shall change it. I'll also provide a bit of logic for non-creature cards of why they would represent the faction they are under.
Vanquisher's banner might be usable by any tribe, but it feels Legion of Dusk to me, just because "Vanquisher" puts me in mind of "Conqueror"/"Conquistador" which the LoD clearly are styled off of. EDIT: Though the art itself seems more Sun Empire, so I dunno, neutral is probably fine.
Vraska is clearly pirate (though perhaps it's more accurate to say that Vraska is aligned with Vraska, and the pirates are a means to an end)
Huatli (The RW PW) is Sun Empire
Jace's PW deck seems to imply that he's with the River Heralds rather than the pirates, but then who knows, maybe he's not actually aligned with any of the factions
Can you update this with all the cards? You are missing quite a lot.
Also Dusk Legion Dreadnought is not pirate faction.. It's even in the name of it.. Dusk Legion. It's a vampire ship. A ship for the Legion of Dusk.
I'm attempting to make commander decks that are themed for Ixalan and the factions so I kinda require this.
