Checking in on the Planeswalkers (2015)
August 19 2015
"Two magi could trade spells all day and never crown a victor. The real battle is not one of power but of will. If your confidence breaks, so too shall you."
A new breed of Planeswalker, Venser is a brilliant inventor able to think fast on his feet. He wields blue and white magic, building unique and powerful artifacts with an emphasis on teleportation.
Venser came from the wasteland of Urborg on the plane of Dominaria. He lived alone in his workshop amidst the remains of warships and wreckage left from the Phyrexian Invasion of Dominaria. Using found parts from the heaps of debris surrounding his home, he built devices that could aid in teleportation.
The Planeswalker Teferi sought out Venser’s help and used his devices to rapidly travel across Dominaria to help close dangerous time distortions in key locations across the plane.
Venser’s talent at teleportation eventually ignited his spark, making him a Planeswalker and giving him direct access to the planes beyond the boundaries of Dominaria.
Relying on his knowledge of artifice and teleportation, Venser now travels the universe, satisfying his boundless curiosity of all things mechanical along the way.
Home to the volcanic continent of Shiv, the time-shattered isle of Tolaria, and the cold mountains of Keld, Dominaria is setting to some of the Multiverse’s most brutal conflicts, and most powerful mages.
Planeswalker Urza created the golem Karn as a weapon and artifact. A Planeswalker himself, Karn has built—and is now trying to save—the metal world of Argentum, which has been contaminated and corrupted.
