I'm getting there, and I'm trying. I really am. To learn the names of the new Wedges. It's a slow process, I admit, but I'm getting there.

You have to remember, it was once like this for the Shards from Alara as well, and now we use those in common usage.

So here's a cheatsheat.

Pretty helpful, right?

This is as awesome as it gets, in terms of readability. Enjoy!

One thought on “What’s that combination called?

  1. I would like to see some sense by applying WUBRG ordering to all subsets. For Shards you could order by WUBRG based on the central ally:

    gWu Bant
    wUb Esper
    uBr Grixis
    bRg Jund
    rGw Naya

    And for Wedges on the enemy colour:

    Wbr Mardu
    Urg Temur
    Bgw Abzan
    Rwu Jeskai
    Gub Sultai

    And also for guilds, Allies first then Enemies:

    Wu Azorius
    Ub Dimir
    Br Rakdos
    Rg Gruul
    Gw Selesnya

    Wb Orzhov
    Ur Izzet
    Bg Golgari
    Rw Boros
    Gu Simic

    I guess for Nephilim you could order by WUBRG based on what’s missing so:

    Glint > Dune > Ink > Witch > Yore as you’ve included in your list above.
