Ral Zarek is a planeswalker native to Ravnica. He is a member of the Izzet league. Ral hoped to win the Implicit Maze for his beloved Izzet guild on Ravnica. But Jace Beleren solved the maze first, becoming the Living Guildpact and gaining arbitrative power over inter-guild conflicts. Not to be outdone, Ral hopes to find some way to gain an edge for his guildmaster Niv-Mizzet, unseat Jace, and see his brilliant plans for the triumph of the Izzet League realized.

Ral Zarek's brainstorms bring actual thunder and lightning.

"I see countless worlds. What makes them think I can't find them in just one?" -Ral Zarek

"I fear that as we scurry after phantoms, the Dimir pull nine puppet strings." -Ral Zarek
