The Art of Magic: the Gathering Ixalan

The Art of Magic: the Gathering Ixalan
The Art of Magic: the Gathering Ixalan

Magnificent hardcover art books featuring the incredible images and lore of Magic: The Gathering®!

Danger and adventure await in these pages, lavishly illustrated with the award-winning art of Magic: The Gathering®!

“Just imagine what’s waiting around the bend. Adventure. Discovery. Riches for the taking. This is why I sail.”
—Captain Lannery Storm

Deep in the heart of Ixalan’s verdant jungle lies a treasure beyond imagining. Join the peoples of this plane in their search for an ancient golden city as you explore these pages, lavishly illustrated with the award-winning art of Magic: The Gathering®!

Here you can sail with daring pirates and call on the might of earth-shaking dinosaurs. The marooned Planeswalker Jace Beleren will be your guide in his search for the true power of the golden city.

A whole world waits to be discovered. Come and join the struggle to claim the greatest treasure of Ixalan!

Nothing terribly earth-shattering we didn’t already know, but possibly affirms a few things.
Honestly kind of amused/endeared that presumably Jace gets all his memories mind-wiped again but his instinct is still “ooh hey a big mysterious thing with a big mystery about it I wanna go solve it”. You do you, Jace.

Many of you are here because you have searched out these leaks. We are duty bound by the nature of our website and our readership to include these leaks here for you. We do so unhappily. All we ask is that you refrain from sharing such early leaks on social media as this could ruin things for other members of the community, and the hard working people at Wizards of the Coast who have put their sweat and tears into making Magic and preview season such a great experience for us all.

We have not shared these leaks online or on social media.

UPDATE 19/04/17

“The fall set is named Ixalan, and will be releasing on September 29, 2017. It will be legal for the 2017 World Championship’s Standard and Limited play. Pro Tour Ixalan is November 3–5, 2017. This also means that Grand Prix Providence and Shizuoka will both be Team Sealed GPs as part of the release weekend.

We’re excited to reveal the name and release date for the fall set, which will be the start of a new block and lead to a fresh new Standard Constructed format. That set’s name is Ixalan, and it will be released on September 29 later this year.”

“For many of our players, this will come as a surprise, since the Pro Tour scheduled around this set will take place November 3–5, rather than two weeks after the new set’s release. We’re trying something different with this set, and are instead timing the 2017 Magic: The Gathering World Championship, which will be just one week after Ixalan’s release, to highlight the new set. This is an experiment to see how utilizing the World Championship to highlight a new Standard fares, and we will be seeking feedback once the schedule bears itself out.

More details regarding Ixalan will be revealed during the big June announcement we will be making, so check back then for more. We’ll also have more info on the World Championship as our 2016–17 season nears its conclusion.”
