What do you think is the worst Guild?
I think Boros, aside from two or three cards, are the worst. Most of their cards are junk, both leaders are overcosted and in the end, you get faster results with Gruul or more sustaining power with Selseyna. Better burn with Izzet and control with Azirous.
What do you think?

Ha, I was just thinking of this the other day.
I've always thought of Golgari as the worst guild (Golgari doesn't seem to go anywhere IMO), but, the more I think about it, Boros is almost just as bad. The only good Boros cards that I can think of are Lightning Helix and maybe Skyknight Legionnaire.

Honestly, it's the Dimir, who were heavily nerfed by WotC to prevent any kind of U/B control deck from rising in Standard for the 100000th time in the history of the game. The only time any of their cards are played in serious tournaments is for the Transmute ability, almost always to support a deck that has nothing to do with the guild's milling theme (Heartbeat, for instance).
The Izzet are a close second, since the only cards of theirs that see tournament play are Electrolyze and the occasional Cerebral Vortex or Niv-Mizzet. Otherwise, they're a casual Johnny guild.
The Golgari are third and another example of a guild which has mostly contributed support cards with their mechanic to break other decks (Loam, Imp, etc.).
The Boros could probably tie the Golgari for third, since their only decent cards are Helix, Legionnaire and Bathe in Light.

If were talking about the guilds alone without support from other sets, Dimir and Izzet are the worst.

I think Dimir are the worst off.
It's the secret guild. You can't find it anywhere! [/bad joke]
