On April 27, after eleven years we will finally return to Dominaria, which is not only one of the largest planes in the Multiverse, but also the center of the Multiverse, where every other plane intersects. Most of the early story lines of Magic: The Gathering took place in Dominaria.
Dominaria is the birthplace of brothers Urza and Mishra, master artificers who discovered ancient stones of power in the Caves of Koilos. These brothers waged a savage war against each other, which was depicted in the Antiquities set, devastating Dominaria and plunging the plane into an Ice Age. Later on, Urza discovered the dark plane of Phyrexia, a hell of flesh, metal, and grease, where distinctions between living and artificial didn‘t apply.
Phyrexia nearly invaded Dominaria, before getting thwarted by the skyship Weatherlight and its crew.
Dominaria was also the epicenter of the temporal-planar fractures that threatened all the planes during Time Spiral block. A host of cataclysms, many caused by Planeswalkers, left Dominaria desolated, destabilizing the fabric of the Multiverse itself. A handful of powerful Planeswalkers had to intervene to mend the rifts and re-stabilize all the planes. All planeswalkers had to pay the price for that though. They all lost their godlike powers and their immortality in the process. Unsurprisingly, Nicol Bolas has been scheming for centuries to regain his former status, setting up the recent events on Amonkhet among lot of other things. What will await us on Dominaria after all that time?
