General description:
a truely amasing card its fare and unfair at the same time however it becomes a main target the moment it comes into play maybe giving it a bit more strength and defence (make it a 2/2) and id be happy but even so 3 on the field unharmed by spells, ablitys, and unblockable thats 30 cards gone from the game

Uses:
id use this brill card in "deck destuction" decks such as the new RAVICNA set alog side with "Sadaki, Lord of Secrets" or just to get on the opponets nerves and i expect the opponet would do the same

Strategies and game play:

mainly getting a wisper silk cloak card on it and avoiding combat or use it with other cards that have the same types of ablitilys a new Ravicna card: Glimpse of the Unthinkable can put 10 cards into a grave yard instantly for 2 mana and when raven guild master attacks another 10 are removed from the game thats 20 or more cards in a turn!

Ways to counteract it:
counter attacks, deal damage cards, distroying the artifact or enchantment that protects it or big creatures (to stop it attacking you whlie its not unblockable) asap other wise it can reallly bugger u up for a few turns

Strengths/Pros:
instantly 10 cards are emoved from the game, the creature is 3 mana, and it looks great

Weaknesses/Cons:
really bad for combat situations, no "haste ablity so it cat attack right away if you wanted it to, instantly targeted becasue of its nasty ablitity


Variations:
well as far as i know English and German are the languaes ive seen, there is a foil version (ive got it )

Artwork and aesthetics:
the art work is cool but i dont think the picture matches the ablitly
but it makes that up for that on the play mat

Overall rating:
since it save my butt so many times its definetly got 9/10 from me

It's not a very playable card. Looking ata competitive decks, you can clearly see that there are cards far better than the Guild master. It's morph cost is expensive, and it's a pretty lame card for late game. If it had a cost like UU for morph maybe, and just maybe, it would be good

I like the review, although I disagree with some parts of it

Regards
