Welcome to Alara

You are a planeswalker, one of the most powerful beings in the multiverse, an immortal wizard of such extraordinary power that the secrets of an infinite number of planes of existence are yours for the plundering -- and you've found yourself on the five-part plane, Alara. Where do you begin?

Welcome, Planeswalkers.

This is your guide.

A Planewalker's Guide to Alara is your comprehensive field guide offering lavish, full color illustrations drawn from early concept art, final card art, world building writing, and all-new content to help you, the planeswalker, prepare for the world you are about to explore.

For the first time, Magic: The Gathering fans can experience the multiverse in a whole new way that no one outside a small circle of insiders have ever seen before. A Planeswalker's Guide to Alara is the essential compendium for the story-hungry planeswalker on the go.
