Magic Origins is a set that explores what it means to start out on a magical journey, and how we change as we progress through our lives. It focuses on five of Magic's most prominent characters, letting you explore their backstories and transformations as they became Planeswalkers. You'll get to see their home worlds, learn about the joys and crises of their early lives, and discover how they became the Multiverse-traveling Planeswalkers we know today. Magic Origins is designed to be accessible to introductory players, like a core set, but with new mechanics that express these themes of growing over time. Magic Origins also plants the seed for Magic's future storylines, allowing you an insider's glimpse of what's to come. Magic Origins serves as the prologue for some epic stories, and it's your chance to be there at the start.
Magic Origins focuses on five Planeswalker characters: Gideon Jura, Jace Beleren, Liliana Vess, Chandra Nalaar, and Nissa Revane. We chose these five Planeswalkers because they will all take a central role in Magic's story in the near future. We felt it was important to go back and explore their origins, to see the tales of what made them who they are, so their motivations and life histories will be known before launching into the next phase of the storyline.
