    I did the math and research. There are at least five ways to distribute guilds evenly between two sets. I am surprised!
    I also think experience counters can be the transguild or guildless theme.

    More info from this weekend as promised.

    Rat is a 16 years old girl who doesn't know which guild to join - she thought about Selesnya, Gruul and Rakdos at the same time. She is accompanying Teyo Verada (who happened to be 17 years old if anyone is interested).

    I'm betting the 'wanderer' is the voice in Davriel's head. He doesn't tend to see 'eye to eye' with it.

    It was called Entity in the book.

    Added some fixes: people reminded me about Davriel Cane+Wanderer, also he said "not all characters will survive", not "planeswalkers" (just to clarify it).

    It was on the twitch stream, but I can't find the link right now.
    To summarize it:

    1) It took him 9 months to write the book.
    2) The book will have 12 POVs and almost 100 named characters.
    3) We will see all 10 guilds in the book. Some will be more fleshed out, some less.
    4) Teyo Verada will be one of the main characters. As a novice planeswalker, he will serve the purpose of a plot device to explain things from his point of view.
    5) Another female character whose name sounds similar to "Rat" will have a connection to Teyo. We will know more about her very soon, maybe this weekend.
    6) Davriel Cane will work together with "Wanderer" (whoever it is). Also expect the alliance between Karn, Ob Nixilis and Dack Fayden. And more weird alliances.
    7) Chandra will survive since her comic takes place after the War.
    8) Not all characters are as lucky as Chandra.

    The book will be released at April, 23.

    Typical Simic creature. Though I think it benefits from Urban Evolution only a little - well, at least it's far from ideal to be cast on the same turn. The land effect is nice and all but there is another effect which was implied to be much more prominent because if you divide Urban Evolution to two spells, draw part will be much more expensive. And for the effects - I've seen similar cards before. Not really sold.

    netn10
    The effect is cool. Not too cool but comborific which is required. On a dark side, I am not a fan of instant/sorcery cards that have permanent effects without any visual reminders. Even though I know instant/sorcery spells are not supposed to create emblems.

    Subject16
    That's like Storm on steroids. Even though you shoud save some insane amount of mana to truly benefit from it. Well, it virtually allows you to draw 18 cards and play six additional lands. I hope you have enough cards in your deck - and six land cards in your hand which is indeed tricky.

    TheDrB
    Nice and simple. Even though we may expect some problems with casting another mana intense spell in totally different color on the same turn as Simic spell.

    Designing a land for this contest is outstanding move. But making balanced lands is actually the hardest challenge, because no land supposed to be more powerful in vacuum than any basic land because lands are free (well, Alpha duals and snow-covered basics are technically better than basics, but still...) Now let's see what we have here. Your land has no downsides, only upsides. It doubles your mana on the turn you play it (see it? You tap all of your lands, play Final Gate and tap all of your land again to drop any mana heavy bomb you can pull out twice faster than any opponent can do). Aaaand you can make some combos here and there with returning it to your hand (Kefnet, Moonfolks). So this is just a free 100% ramp for everyone. Even though it produces only colorless mana and is legendary, I think your card is broken. But the synergy isn't that great (see RaikouRider critiques).

    Jimmy Groove
    Well... This is probably something I could design as well. Even though the CMC is intense (but it usually will be 5, not 6), it's playable. Because everyone likes drawing cards with an evasive haste creature. And it benefits from Urban Evolution for sure, especially if we keep in mind that Urban Evolution is not cheap too).
