I'm a HUGE fan of MTG, and sadly where I live I can't play as much as My problem is that I can't seem to find ANY damn book ANYWHERE in. The Magic: The Gathering book series by multiple authors includes books Arena, Whispering Woods (Magic: The Gathering: Greensleeves, #1), Shattered. Magic began to venture out of Dominaria and into several new planes in the later Theros was the last block to receive a companion novel, and only in E-book.
In the Teeth of Akoum is the Zendikar block novel. It tells the story of Nissa and Sorin's quest to re-seal the Eldrazi. The book itself is not particularly good, and it's not recommended. All you need to know is the ending, where Nissa breaks open the final seal ignoring Sorin's advice and releases the Eldrazi.
The Quest for Karn is the Scars of Mirrodin block novel. It is borderline unreadable and not recommended. Again, all you need to know is the ending, where Venser dies to restore Karn's spark and mind. The Secretist is the Return to Ravnica block novel, told in three parts.
It doesn't really deal with any major characters or themes from the original Ravnica, so it's pretty safe to read as a stand alone. It is recommended. Godsend is the Theros block novel, told in two parts. It deals with Elspeth being chosen by the god Heliod to defeat Xenagos. Comics The Post-Mending story has been told through three different comic book venues at this point. Path of the Planeswalker Volumes I and II are the collections of the original Magic webcomics that premiered on the main website during Alara through Scars of Mirrodin.
They're linked in my post-Mending chronology below. In general, Pre-Revisionist materials are still canon unless contradicted by another source.
Planeswalkers before the Mending wielded god-like power. Detailed story summaries for Mirage and Visions were available on the Wizards website, covering the events of the Mirage War.
The next four years, from Tempest in through Apocalypse in , would follow the story of the legendary Skyship Weatherlight and her crew. Phyrexia, the dark world of artifice, was an ever-present looming threat during this time period. This culminated in an all-out invasion, where the forces of Dominaria led by the planeswalker Urza faced off against the overwhelming might of Phyrexia.
To tell this story, Wizards of the Coast launched a novel series that tackled the story of each set. The cards became a detailed sometimes too detailed storyboard of plot points. A secondary cycle series of novels of novels every year was also released around this time, as well as a series of anthologies, resulting in around a half dozen novels per year.
Following the climactic events of Apocalypse, Odyssey would see a dramatic shift in how the story was expressed, following the events surrounding a mysterious artifact known as the Mirari on the Dominarian continent of Otaria. Unlike the Weatherlight saga, which sometimes went too far in depicting events from the story as cards, the next decade of the story would disappear from the cards almost entirely.
When the Odyssey storyline concluded two years later in Scourge, the story would drop Dominaria as the central narrative focus. It would also drop the secondary novels, focusing only on the plot of each block. The next few years entered what is typically known as the Planehopping Era.
Mirrodin, Champions of Kamigawa, and Ravnica: City of Guilds each spent a block on a new plane, eschewing the god-like planeswalkers as central characters. It was clear this was an era when the story was experimenting for what was to come next: the Mending. In the Time Spiral block, the story returned to Dominaria to deal with damage from catastrophic events caused by planeswalkers.
When the last rift was sealed, the fundamental nature of the multiverse and the planeswalker spark changed. Planeswalkers were drained of their god-like power and immortality.
The elder dragon planeswalker Nicol Bolas foresaw this change, and began taking steps to protect himself. The first story of the Post-Mending Era was Lorwyn, a self-contained story more evocative of the Planeshopping Era than what would follow.
It was with Shards of Alara that we would finally see the ramifications of the Mending. This continued for several years until the novel line was cancelled prior to the story of Innistrad.
This period also featured a series of webcomics featuring the new cast of characters later titled Path of the Planeswalker for trade circulation. The webcomics were cancelled alongside the novel line. With the cancellation of the novels, Innistrad featured a handful of short fiction and a few overall plot synopsis articles reminiscent of Mirage. Stuck on Zendikar? Surrounded by Eldrazi? The point is that we are extremely excited to announce this new, shiny especially when your screen is clean outlet for Magic fiction.
