Ravnica: City of Guilds Magic the Gathering Cards, Singles, Foils, Boxes, Packs and Buylist
Nothing ever changes in Ravnica. For countless millennia, cities have covered the entire plane. Eventually, they ran together into one vast megalopolis -- a patchwork of grand halls, decrepit slums, ancient ruins, and layer upon layer of stonework structures. Of the world's countless civic centers, one looms above all others: the City of Ravnica, a metropolis so vast that its name has become synonymous with the world itself. It is here -- amid mazes of streets and towering gothic spires -- that the guilds vie for power and control.

Radiance: The Boros keyword. An example of radiance is "Leave no Trace" and reads "Radiance - Destroy target enchantment and each other enchantment that shares a color with it."
Transmute: The Dimir keyword. Transmute works by paying a mana cost you may search for a card with the same mana cost as the transmuted card.
Dredge: The Golgari keyword. Dredge X says "If you would draw a card, instead you may put exactly X cards from the top of your library into your graveyard. If you do, return this card from your graveyard to your hand. Otherwise, draw a card." This is a broken mechanic and largely seen as a mistake.
Convoke: The Selesnya keyword. Convoke allows you to tap creatures instead of mana to cast the spell with convoke.
