Since Plane Shift: Zendikar came out I’ve been thinking. Are there any other Magic: The Gathering planes I would like to see in D&D? So I made a list of the MtG planes I’d like to see as a D&D setting the most. And these are the following.
Alara is a plane that was broken into five shards and later became one again. So there are three possible states in which we can find it. The pre-shards Alara, the broken Alara and the whole once more Alara. The second and third periods are what I think the most interesting.
Dominaria is the current center of the Multiverse. What happens there may affect other planes too. Many conflicts have taken place there, scarring the land so bad that it hasn’t recovered yet. This is the Forgotten Realms of MtG.
This plane has two states and changes between them every 300 years. One state is like a fairy tale and the other one like a nightmare. Reminds me of the Feywild and the Shadowfell.
Mirrodin was an artificial plane. Now it has become the home of one of the BBEGs of MtG. Personally, I would prefer a Mirrodin setting before the Phyrexian invasion.
This one shouts city setting. The whole plane is a huge city with ten guilds fighting for supremacy. I like the idea of a city setting and Ravnica has almost all that I’d want in one.
There is already a gothic horror setting for D&D, Ravenloft. So, even though it would be cool to see how Innistrad would be as an official D&D setting, I doubt it’s ever going to happen.
However, there are some good news. Someone has created an adventure set in Innistrad. It’s completely free and all the material can be found in this reddit post. Seriously, check it out. It’s good.
We don’t know if Wizards of the Coast are going to release more supplements like Plane Shift: Zendikar. It depends on the feedback they’re going to get from the survey. Personally, I would buy a well written campaign setting book for one of these planes. What about you? Would you like a campaign setting book for one of Magic’s awesome worlds? And if yes, which one would you like the most?
Until next time, have fun!

Not a big MtG fan, but Ravinca would be fantastic. So much potential!

The official name for Ravnica is Ravnica: City of Guilds. I call it Ravnica: City of plot hooks. With every step you take in that city, a ton of stuff can happen!
