Returning in Shards of Alara, Planeswalkers are the most powerful beings in the multiverse. Planeswalker cards first appeared in the Lorwyn expansion.

Intro packs will be released for the first time with Shards of Alara and are the perfect way to introduce new players to Magic: The Gathering.

Each deck comes with two rare cards, one of which is a premium foil rare card that is visible through the front of the box. There are 5 intro packs in Shards of Alara.
