One of the most impactful and critical sets in Magic: The Gathering’s history is just around the corner. Dubbed War of the Spark, this set revolves around the dragon Nicol Bolas coming to Ravnica to eliminate all of the opposing Planeswalkers. With an undead army and a machine that prevents Planeswalkers from escaping, some of the most iconic figures in the game are in this set. Including the Buy-a-Box promo, there are a total of 37 different Planeswalkers in War of the Spark.
Coming in at Uncommon, Rare, and Mythic, Planeswalkers differ this time around by boasting static abilities. This can be anything from granting creatures Affinity to drawing a card when a creature dies. Additionally, we will only be posting confirmed cards for War of the Spark and not ones that have potentially leaked. Given almost all of the leaked Planeswalker cards are very blurry, we cannot directly confirm their authenticity.
