The Simic Combine is Ravnica’s steward of nature and the wild; its mission is to preserve and advance the natural world even as Ravnica’s cities continue to grow. The guild seeks to protect the elements of the plane that are incompatible or mutually exclusive with its overpopulated, urban conditions. This is not easy, of course, because the forces of civilization are so prevalent on Ravnica that they threaten to subsume anything that runs counter to them. But the Simic practice a strange combination of detachment and holism that provide a kind of separation from the larger urban systems—a separation on which their conservation mission depends.
With their advancement of the natural world, mutations abound among them being but a mere shadow of their former self, transformed into a greater being. This drink uses this concept by taking the Kraken Dark Spiced Rum, in which is the creature, and mutating it into a flavor completely unlike how it used to be. The Kraken’s sweet spicy flavor is transformed by the sourness and sweetness of the Melon Liquor and Sweet & Sour creating an entirely new drinking experience. This is a tangy yet sweet cocktail with a good finish that you’re sure to love.
