An official guide to the most iconic legends and legendary creatures from the world of Magic: The Gathering

The world of Magic: The Gathering is home to many fantastical characters and creatures, but perhaps none so intriguing as its legendary creature cards, which include dragons, demons, angels, goblins, vampires, merfolk, wizards, and more. These legendary cards harken back to Magic’s early history, having been introduced in one of the first sets of Magic cards (1994’s Legends) and in yearly expansions all the way through spring 2020’s most recent set.

Magic: The Gathering: Legends showcases high-quality reproductions of the most iconic card art from across the game's history—in many instances for the first time outside of the card frame—along with accompanying creature and character histories written by Jay Annelli. This collection also offers exclusive insight into the art and mythology behind some of Magic: The Gathering’s most powerful, popular, and enduring legends and legendary creatures.
