This is where it all began. Released in December 1993, five months after the release of the basic game, Arabian Nights was the first expansion for Magic: The Gathering. The flavor of the cards was based on the characters, stories, and objects in the classic Middle Eastern tales, 1001 Arabian Nights. With this set, players can relive the tales of Sindbad and Aladdin, battle powerful djinns and efreets, and journey to strange lands like the Island of Wak-Wak and the Diamond Valley. Featuring some of the most powerful cards ever printed, like Library of Alexandria and Juzam Djinn, Arabian Nights was a fitting beginning to the long tradition that is Magic: The Gathering expansion sets.
It is a time of great peril. Artifacts from an ancient people known as the Thran are being uncovered in tremendous quantities. The civilization of the past was far more advanced, warlike, and brutal, and the war machines dug up from a previous cataclysm are pressed into service. The scientists of today learn much from these relics. In the midst of this renaissance, two brothers, Urza and Mishra, discover an ancient cave. In it they find a stone that has locked away incredible evil for eons upon eons. When they touch it, it sunders, and once again Dominaria is in great danger. The two equal parts of the stone contain within them great power, and the brothers battle each other for control of them both. Their conflict spans years and eventually encompasses the entire continent of Terisiare. There struggle has come to be known as the Brothers' War, and the Thran artifacts uncovered by archeological digs are once again used for battle and destruction. Ornithopters fill the skies. Dragon engines pillage the ground, and a tremendously powerful artifact-called the Sylex-brings down destruction like the world hasn't seen for five thousand years.
Legendary Heroes Like any other world, Dominia has its Legends. In this new expansion you'll meet Johan, Gabriel Angelfire, Sivitri Scarzam, Hunding, and many more. As you delve into Dominia's mythology, you'll discover 310 new spells, artifacts, and creatures with the power to defy death. So enter the world of Legends and join the heroes in the struggle for Dominaria!
