Overview

Rising Tensions: RNA is a PvE Standard event introduced in March 2019, along with the release of the Ravnica Allegiance set. The event has an entry fee of 20 Mana Crystals.

Like its sister event, Rising Tensions: GRN, five variations of the event are run during weekdays on a Monday/Wednesday/Friday rotation. On each day, the player fights for a different Guild featured in the Guilds of Ravnica set. The player battles against nodes representing the other four Guilds.

Backstory

"The friction between the guilds of Ravnica has never been more palpable. An absent Guildpact has given rise to new guild leaders with unknown agendas. On this critical moment, each guild must gather information and seek for possible allies."

Special rules

Color restriction Color restriction One or more nodes in this event can only be played by Planeswalkers of a specified color.

The Guild of the day provides a special benefit (to both players) on all nodes via a permanent support.
