the City’s Blessing is a game mechanic introduced in the Rivals of Ixalan expansion set of Magic: The Gathering. It is a way to reward players for controlling the most powerful and influential city in the plane of Ixalan.
Each card that references the City’s Blessing mechanic has an ability that triggers when its controller has the City’s Blessing. For example, the card “Legion Lieutenant” from the Rivals of Ixalan set has the ability “Other Vampires you control get +1/+1” and “As long as you have the City’s Blessing, they also have lifelink.” This means that when a player has the City’s Blessing, all of their Vampire creatures gain the lifelink ability, in addition to the +1/+1 bonus.
