The Story of Magic: The Gathering

Although Magic: The Gathering is essentially just a strategy game that uses decks of cards, an intricate storyline underlies the cards released in each expansion. This storyline is shown through flavor text on the bottom of most cards and in the novels published by HarperPrism and Wizards of the Coast. Players take on the role of a "planeswalker," a powerful magic-user that can summon up magical energies and creatures from different planes of existence. This multiverse is known as Dominia.

The Magic Timeline can be broken down into several distinct time periods each detailed in certain sets:

There are numerous other smaller plots and subplots that take place in Dominaria and on the many planes of the multiverse of Dominia as well as events after the invasion of Dominaria by the Phyrexians.
