Well sometimes when you swing big you hit a homerun and sometimes you strike out. In an article a few days ago we speculated that the name of the 5 colleges were named after the 5 mono colored familiars from the commander legends set. While we were sharing that post around a redditor name Kittank sent us some info that got us looking into a Danish website called Spilforsyningen (ya that’s a mouth full) that had their commander decks up for preorder already with this to say
Welcome to Strixhaven: School of Mages! Here you will study magic under one of the five colleges: Silverquil, Lorehold, Prismari, Witherbloom & Quandrix. Each dorm represents one of Magic’s two-color combinations, each with their own personality and mechanics. Learn from the best professors and explore Strixhaven’s huge library!https://spilforsyningen.dk/collections/nyeste-produkter/products/magic-strixhaven-pre-release-pack?fbclid=IwAR0oL73NBQ3zuwKXfIKN7ImShTnju05i0B2qHAiaLx_Pn-ztxTNeVizH0vo
So there you have it. Not only do we now know the name of the 5 colleges but we also learned that they will be 5 color pairs of mana bases. Seems interesting to me seeing that the 2 leading theories were either mono colored or shards. I guess we were all wrong and we will be going back to the some of the guild colors for this school.
Here is a screen shot of the website if you’d like to see it but you can copy and paste the link in the quote above as well. Just remember to use the google translate for the site if you are using chrome!
We will have more speculation coming with this new info in mind so make sure and keep your eye out for that! Thanks for reading and we will talk to you next time!
