Over the course of its 25-year history, Magic: The Gathering–the
world's first and most popular trading card game–has redefined the fantasy
genre through its exploration of diverse, fantastic worlds. And traversing those
worlds are Planeswalkers, heroes who have sworn to defend the Multiverse from
harm. Magic: The Gathering: Rise of the Gatewatch is a visual history and
celebration of Magic's first team of Planeswalkers–Jace Beleren, Ajani
Goldmane, Gideon Jura, Chandra Nalaar, Nissa Revane, Liliana Vess, and Teferi.
The Gatewatch's character histories, from their origins through their final
confrontation with Nicol Bolas, are presented here via the very best card,
packaging, and convention-exclusive artwork, all of it reproduced together here
for the first time, some seen for the first time outside of the card frame. Rise
of the Gatewatch is a giftable visual reference guide sure to appeal to new and
longtime Magic fans alike.
