Magic: The Gathering is a Collectable Trading Card Game where players take on the role of Planeswalkers as they build customisable decks that consist of creatures, spells, instants, sorceries, enchantments, planeswalkers and artifacts and battle each other until one player claims ultimate victory.
Players battle each other using their decks in a range of various playable formats including Standard, Modern, Limited, Legacy, Commander, EDH, Sealed, Constructed, Drafting and for Casual Play. A typical deck is usually composed of a minimum of 60 cards (100 for Commander). It is a game about building the best decks, exploring card combos and synergy.
Over recent years, Wizards of the Coast have introduced some very cool Planeswalkers through the mythos and story arcs from each block in MTG (Magic: The Gathering) including Jace, Liliana, Chandra, Gideon, Elspeth, Nissa, Garruk, Ob Nixilus, Kiora, Saheeli, Tezzeret and many more.
Each block (eg. Kaladesh / Aether Revolt) in Magic the Gathering is comprised on two sets that work together in narrative flavour and mechanics.
We hope you find this video as enjoyable to watch as fun as it was to film.
We wish you good luck in your many adventures in Magic: The Gathering.
