Time period unknown

The following people are planeswalkers that have appeared in revisionist continuity, but we do not know whether they are pre or post-mending. This list only mentions those 'walkers actually seen or mentioned by name. Other planeswalkers have been described (a "demonic leviathan" and a "shark person" for example) but never named or shown.

Planeswalkers

  • Playable
    • Aminatou ({W}{U}{B}) — An incredibly young human girl whose magic can manipulate fate and destiny.
    • Estrid ({G}{W}{U}) — An enchantress who fashions magical masks that imbue her with the strengths and skills of the creatures they represent.
    • Grist ({B}{G}) — An insect, or possibly the collective conscience of a swarm of insects.

Unconfirmed

It is unclear whether the following characters actually were planeswalkers.

Not planeswalkers

The following characters are often thought to be planeswalkers but have been confirmed not to be ‘walkers in revisionist continuity. The ones with an {cross} behind their name were planeswalkers in prerevisionist continuity but have been ret-conned into not being them since then.

Prerevisionist

Confirmed

The following people have been confirmed to be planeswalkers in prerevisionist continuity and could still be in revisionist continuity. The ones with a {tick} behind their name have been confirmed to be planeswalkers in revisionist continuity as well.

The following characters were planeswalkers in prerevisionist continuity, but have been demoted (or promoted) from that status in revisionist continuity.

The following characters were called planeswalkers in the Greensleeves Cycle, but those books were released before the power level of planeswalkers was clearly established, thus it is difficult to say if they were really planeswalker in the true sense of the word. It must be noted, however, that Kuthuman, Garth, and Greensleeves herself have been described as having almost god-like powers, which seems to confirm that they had a planeswalker's spark. After being printed as a creature in Modern Horizons 2, Garth was confirmed to have been a planeswalker.[11]

  • Chaney: Chaney's status as a planeswalker is contested. She is described as having considerable powers (she can manipulate the flowing of time) and she was surely able to planeswalks in her youth; however she grows old and dies like a mortal woman: whether this means that she didn't have a proper spark, somehow lost it, or simply chose to die remains unknown.
  • Garth One-Eye ({G}{U},{W}{B}{R}) {tick}
  • Greensleeves ({G},{W}{U}{B}{R})
  • Kuthuman ({B}{R})

Then there is one person who was given the power of a planeswalker by Geyadrone Dihada. Planeswalker powers cannot be gained this way in revisionist continuity, but it is possible Dihada only activated his latent spark.

Unconfirmed

It is unclear whether the following people were actual planeswalkers or not.

Not planeswalkers

It is often thought that the Elder Dragons were planeswalkers, but in prerevisionist continuity, it was mentioned that their power was “almost like that of planeswalkers”.

Note that Arcades Sabboth and Nicol Bolas never appeared in prerevisionist stories, although the latter was shown as a ‘walker in revisionist continuity.
