A Look at Real-Life People on Magic Cards

There have been real life people in Magic: The Gathering cards before. And no, not all of them include past championship winners or Richard Garfield.

Almost thirty years ago, the Legends set came out with a few problems attached. Today, some cards are coming back.

Magic: The Gathering almost had a mechanic where you were allowed to bring in very old cards to play in newer matches. And everything was nearly broken.

Early Magic: The Gathering had some really wonky land cards. Here's one of them.

Magic: The Gathering has had a lot of odd cards over the years. And that includes a land subtype known as Locus.

Dutch Magic: The Gathering artist Ilse Gort answers some questions about herself, her art, and the furry fandom.

Magic: The Gathering once had a flying purple hippo creature made as a joke be on a few cards.

For years, the Magic: The Gathering Hall of Fame severely declined in new inductees. Then, something was done about it.

Magic: The Gathering once had a set that tried to bring in beginner players into the game. And it worked! Well, somewhat.
