This book covers the art and mythos behind mainstay legendary characters such as Niv-Mizzet, Emmara Tandris, Marit Lage, Sisay, Atraxa, the Eldrazi titans, Edgar Markov, Queen Marchesa, Zurgo, Pia Nalaar, Zacama, King Algenus Kenrith, Snapdax, and more.

The accompanying histories of the various legends were penned by Jay Annelli, and the illustrations were provided by various artists through Wizards of the Coast.Magic: The Gathering: Legends: A Visual History will be available as a 256-page hardcover volume which will retail for $18.99.

Wizards of the Coast will also release the Commander Legends set on November 6, 2020 (see " Wizards of the Coast Drops Deets on 'Commander Legends' Product Line").
