Okay, so we know that Vraska is basically a sleeper agent for Jace while working under Bolas. As far as we know, Nic doesn't know anything about Vraska's involvement with Jace.
We also know that Ral is an agent of Bolas, unbeknownst to Jace, the Gatewatch, and even his own Izzet guild.
so with each side having a "man on the inside" of he opposition, wouldn't they just kind of cancel each other out? How do you see the roles these two have in the upcoming conflict playing out?
We still don't know how far Ral Zarek is involved with Uncle Bolas, but I don't expect much from him. However, if Bolas wants to seize control over Ravnica I presume he needs the help of guilds to achieve that, which possibly means that he will put Tezze in charge of the Dimir, Ral in charge of Izzet and Vraska in charge of the Golgari, but Bolas will have to deal with Niv first.
That's 3/5 guilds. I wonder if he'll nab two more?
Rakdos seems possible, though they might want to avoid having them be antagonists to avoid villainous stereotypes.
Gruul by manipulating Domri and the clans?
As for the Gatewatch, I wonder if they too will gain 5 Guild-aligned allies, and if a designated Planeswalker will be the team's envoy to each of them. dunno
Gideon- Boros or Selesnya
Chandra- Rakdos? Gruul
Jaya- ? Boros
