Commence the Endgame MtG Art by Noah Bradley

While movie goers and Marvel fans are going gaga over the seemingly final movie of the Avengers, Magic the Gathering fans and players know that Avengers: Endgame is not the only "Endgame" being anticipated.

MtG War of the Spark is set in the guild city plane of Ravnica. This city-plane is divided into ten guilds, each having their own affair and agenda for their advancement.

Story

War of the Spark centers on the attempt of the Elder Dragon, Nicol Bolas to subdue and invade the plane of Ravnica. Apparently, Nicol Bolas had planned well the invasion as he brought other beings and his Dreadhorde army (zombies!) from another plane.

The citizens of the plane responded to the invasion by setting the guilds' differences and feuds aside. Nothing can be more inspiring than seeing a battalion of soldiers, scientists, spies, barbarians and law mages forming their ranks and defending the city.

Of course, just like the other Endgame, we wouldn't want to spoil the outcome of this story. To know more, you can check out the novel, War of the Spark by Greg Weisman.

Set content

War of the Spark contains 264 cards (15 basic lands, 101 commons, 80 uncommons, 53 rares, 15 mythic rares) and the best thing about is there are 36 Planeswalker cards and 20 of these are uncommon rarities!

Aside from these treats, there will also be a Japanese alternate art of the Planeswalker cards that come in an anime-ish drawing! You can see the comparison below:

Final Thoughts

For fans of Magic the Gathering card game, having a set that features many planeswalkers is amazing and pretty much not expected after the release of the previous Ravnica block. Of course, the story that ties with this latest release justifies why we are getting 36 Planeswalkers.

The story itself is interesting as it culminates the hidden machinations of Nicol Bolas from the previous story arcs (Kaladesh to Guilds of Ravnica). War of the Sparks has revealed the interconnections of the events from the previous planes as masterfully orchestrated by Bolas himself.

War of the Spark is set to be released on the 3rd of May 2019 at your local hobby stores.
