Like my guild and I*

Nope. Then if you removed "my guild" it'd say "Like I, you may have..."

The great plains of English grammar extend far beyond what we learned in elementary school, my friend. Learnin'. Get you some.

I think you're actually looking for "my guild and me". If I remember correctly (which I probably don't), it's supposed to work so that if you took out either part of the subject, it would still work (i.e. "Like my guild, you may have..." and "Like me, you may have..."), but the speaker always comes second.

There is a really easy way to tell if you should use "my guild and I" vs. "my guild and me" (it should be "my guild and me" for respect purposes, because you should place the other party first, but "me and my guild" is still appropriate). Anyway, the time to use "my guild and I" would be when it is the subject of the sentance, i.e. "My guild and I went to Ulduar" vs. "You went to Ulduar, like my guild and me". The simple way to tell if you should be using "my guild and me" is that you can move it around in the sentence, i.e. "You went to Ulduar, like my guild and me" vs. "Like my guild and me, you went to Ulduar." "My guild and I" cannot usually be moved in the sentence (though either "my guild" or "I" can be removed, and still make sense), for instance "My guild and I went to Ulduar" cannot be reordered to be "Went to Ulduar my guild and I" (unless you are using some sort of Yoda-speak, but then again, Yoda-speak is still usually grammatically correct).
