This is a timeline of the Magic: The Gathering storyline. It is an unofficial document, but all information on it is taken from official canon sources (see: list of storyline sources). All stories that could be dated, or couldn't be dated but could be placed at some point in the timeline because of their connection to other stories, have been incorporated to the fullest possible extent. Note that this timeline is not completely accurate, and some events have an estimated date or a date range in which they could have occurred.

Dating systems[]

Main article: Dating systems

The infinite planes of the multiverse do not necessarily carry the same lengths of day, month, or year. However, years seem to pass between planes concurrently in-storyline, so a Ravnican year can be presumed to be the same length as a Dominarian year. See the notes section below the timeline for additional details.


In Cridhe the years are given in relation to the Parting. The only other known date is that of the Mending of the Clan Tree, in 520.[1]


The dates on this timeline are in AR: Argivian Reckoning, with year 0 starting with the birth of Urza. Other known reckonings are Penregon Founded, beginning with the founding of the city Penregon in -912 AR, and the Reckoning of the Sages of Minorad, starting with the gathering in 3000 AR of said sages. A Dominarian year is 420 days long and divided into twelve 35-day months.[2]

Most pre-revision dates were given in the Minorad reckoning, but many can't possibly be true in post-revisionist continuity. Minorad reckoning is only incorporated in the timeline and translated to AR if it can still be true in current continuity.

Another dating system was established by New Sumifans in Almaaz. Its Common Era (CE) starts around 3035 AR (Date of 3000 BCE (Before Common Era) corresponds to times of Brothers, soon after Almaaz joined to Mishra's forces).[3]


Dates on Innistrad are measured using the stages of the moon and the years since Avacyn's creation, commonly shortened to "Ava." There are three seasons on Innistrad: Harvest Moon (autumn), Hunter's Moon (winter), and New Moon (spring). It is unclear how long a season or a year on Innistrad lasts, although Hunter's Moon is said to be the longest and New Moon the shortest.[4]


Ravnica works with AC and ZC, which stand for "Al Concordant" and "Zal Concordant", meaning "Before the Agreement" and "After the Agreement" in Old Ravi, respectively. The agreement, in this case, is the signing of the Guildpact. The D&D Guildmasters' Guide to Ravnica establishes the Ravnican date of the Guilds of Ravnica block as 10,076 ZC, which equals ~4560 AR. By this reckoning, the year 0 ZC began during the year -5516 AR (assuming there is both a year 0 AR and a year 0 ZC).[5] A Ravnican year is 365 days, each of its twelve months matching up in length with their Gregorian calendar counterpart.[6]


The Meletian calendar is irregular, with most years being 354 days. About every three years a thirteenth month of 30 days is added for 384 days to account for the misaligned solar year. Months on Theros alternate between 30 and 29 days.[7]

Temporal crisis[]


  • The collective impact of the Sylex Blast, the Shard, the Tolarian time travel experiments, the Rathi Overlay, and Karona starts to be felt, as mana-sucking rifts begin to open all over Dominaria. Magic, time and reality becomes increasingly unstable, and it is more difficult to planeswalk on Dominaria.[45]
  • Teferi, Jhoira and a pair of Viashino and Ghitus return from their self-imposed exile to find Dominaria in a state of decay. Teferi begins work to try to return Zhalfir and Shiv to Dominaria without further damaging the plane.
  • Nicol Bolas is revived.
  • Teferi gives up his spark in order to close the Shivan time rift. Freyalise dies closing the Skyshroud rift. Lord Windgrace imbues Urborg with his essence and dies closing the Urborg rift. Karn disappears after closing the Tolarian rift. Nicol Bolas destroys the Honden of Night's Reach and turns the Myojin's followers against her.
  • Jeska falls under the manipulation of Leshrac. She closes the rift over Zhalfir but ends up destroying Zhalfir in the process. She then closes the rift over Yavimaya, but damages the ecosystem and possibly destroys Multani. She attempts to close the rift over Madara, but Leshrac's plot is revealed. He attacks Nicol Bolas with an artifact given to him by the Myojin of Night's Reach. Bolas is able to beat Leshrac using the actual mask of Night's Reach. He uses an enthralled Leshrac to close the Madaran rift.
  • Jeska gives her life to close the final rift over Otaria.

The Mending Era (4500 AR to Present)[]


  • The Great Mending takes place: all remaining fractures heal, first in Dominaria then spreading throughout the Multiverse in a chain reaction. Mana again flows freely throughout Dominaria, returning life and hope to the dying world. Planeswalkers lose their immortality and godlike powers and much of their additional magic power. All existing means of traveling between planes without a spark cease to function.[72]
  • Teferi sets out to become a mage of Suq'Ata. Jhoira meets with a man claiming to be Jodah. Radha unifies the Keldons and remaining Skyshroud Elves. Venser departs Dominaria to explore the planes.
  • On Kaladesh, Avaati Vya manages to successfully refine aether. An era of prosperity called the Great Aether Boom follows.

  • On Zendikar, Nissa Revane is born.[79]




  • Oona's acts of interfering with Lorwyn's natural linear progression is ended by the rebellion put into motion by Colfenor. Oona's duplicate, Maralen, assumes control of the plane with the help of Colfenor's sapling and the elemental Ashling. Maralen restores the normal flow of day and night over the plane.
  • Nissa Revane journeys to Lorwyn before the Great Aurora and studies black mana under the elves of the Gilt-Leaf.















~4554 (Ava. 715)



  • Chandra surfaces on Zendikar looking for a ruin sage named Anowon, and with him, searches for the Eye of Ugin. They encounter Sarkhan once they reach the eye and he plans to sacrifice Chandra for unknown reasons. Jace appears and assists Chandra, striking an uneasy truce to defeat Sarkhan. Their actions trigger a reaction in the Hedrons surrounding the Eye. Chandra and Sarkhan leave the plane the same day, Jace leaves 2 weeks later.
  • Sarkhan returns to Bolas's Meditation Realm to inform the dragon of the events that transpired at the Eye. Bolas reveals Tezzeret's body, in the midst of being rebuilt, to Sarkhan.
  • Bolas finishes his efforts to restore Tezzeret's mind and body, giving him the task to find the secret of Etherium from Crucius the Mad. Ultimately successful, Bolas then sends Tezzeret to Mirrodin, having become aware of the Phyrexian taint spreading on that plane.
  • The events of In the Teeth of Akoum occur.[95]
    • Nissa Revane and her Tajuru allies are attacked by Eldrazi brood lineage. Sorin Markov shows up and deals with the remaining brood, recovering Anowon after 3 months of enslavement by the Eldrazi in the process. Nissa agrees to lead him to Akoum. Upon arrival, the elf and the vampire argue with each other, which results in Nissa breaking the central hedron in the Eye of Ugin. The Eldrazi Titans are freed.
  • Gideon Jura followed Chandra to Zendikar, but lost her track around the Eye of Ugin. He stayed at Fort Keff and defeated a handful of brood lineage that attacked the fort. Upon seeing Emrakul on the horizon, he fled, knowing he didn't stand a chance against the monstrosity. He leaves Zendikar for Ravnica to petition the help of an organization of planeswalkers.
  • Koth encounters Elspeth and Venser on Urborg. He enlists their help in dealing with the Phyrexian corruption taking place on Mirrodin. Ultimately, weeks (if not months) later, they succeed in freeing Karn at the cost of Venser's life.[95]
  • The archangel Avacyn and the demon Griselbrand, to whom Liliana owes a portion of her soul, disappear from the plane of Innistrad.


  • Sorin returns to his homeplane of Innistrad after the fiasco on Zendikar to find it destroying itself.
  • Niv-Mizzet begins extensive research into the nature of the Implicit Maze, appointing Ral Zarek as the lead researcher.
  • Gideon Jura arrives on Ravnica to find tensions increasing amid the rise of the Gateless and the resurgence of the guilds. Knowing he has little choice, he places his search for allies on hold, having had little success anyways.
  • Garruk pursues Liliana to Innistrad, intent on having her remove his curse or killing her for inflicting it upon him. After a few months of searching, Liliana tracks Griselbrand's disappearance to the Helvault and manipulates Thalia into destroying it (Ava. ~719).[95]
  • Jace finishes his own research concerning the Implicit Maze. Shocked by the answers he discovered, he erases his own memory, effectively losing 6 months of his life. However, the activities of House Dimir draw him back in. Niv-Mizzet orchestrates the running of the Implicit Maze. Jace becomes the Living Guildpact.[95]
  • Elesh Norn seizes power over the red and black factions of New Phyrexia.
  • Koth attempts to assassinate the ascendant Elesh Norn with an incredibly powerful spellbomb, forcing Elspeth to leave New Phyrexia for Theros. Koth escaped alive into the bowels of the furnace layers. He hopes that the Mirran resistance can one day overthrow the Phyrexians.
  • The Legion of Dusk arrive on the continent of Ixalan.[99]


  • Xenagos enacts his plans to manipulate the gods into confronting each other, forcing Kruphix to enact the Silence, removing them from Theros and leaving his path open to ascend to godhood.[95]
  • Following a battle in Akros, Xenagos ascends in the Great Revel, throwing off the balance of power in Theros.
  • Daxos dies at 22 years old.
  • Alongside Ajani, Elspeth Tirel enters the realm of Nyx to topple the new god though it ultimately costs her life.
  • Sorin Markov arrives on Tarkir and releases Ugin from the hedron cocoon. Sorin tells Ugin about the release of the Eldrazi, and Ugin dismisses him and demands that he seek out Nahiri.
  • Sarkhan Vol returns to the present; Tarkir's clans are ruled by dragonlords. He seeks out Ugin and explains his own role in the release of the Eldrazi, and in saving Ugin's life. He leaves Ugin and meets with Narset, a planeswalker he had met in an alternate timeline.[95]
  • These events happened in an alternate timeline Tarkir:
    • Sorin Markov arrives on Tarkir and seeks out Ugin. He discovers that Ugin is long dead, and despairs of saving the multiverse from the Eldrazi.
    • Sarkhan Vol, drawn by a voice in his mind, planeswalks to Tarkir and seeks Ugin. He is joined by Narset, who is merely a monk in this timeline. When they arrive at Ugin's tomb, Zurgo Helmsmasher attacks them and kills Narset. Sarkhan enters a time portal and arrives in Tarkir's past, around the year 3285, where he alters the plane's timeline by saving Ugin's life after a duel with Nicol Bolas.[55] The resulting temporal anomaly forcibly returns him to a modified present-day Tarkir.
  • Davriel Cane arrives on Innistrad
  • Preparations for the Inventors' Fair begin on Kaladesh[100]

Notes on the timeline[]

Since some parts of the timeline are open to interpretation this section was created to show which of them could be different, and why the current version was chosen. This section will not include an argumentation for all dates and the placing of undated events, because dates are often just given in the books, and most un-dated events have to have happened between certain dated events because of the characters or nations present.

Year Zero[]

The Argivian Reckoning explicitly uses a year zero corresponding to the year of Urza's and Mishra's births.[119] Other dating systems, especially the Ravnican timeline, have been implied to use year zeroes as well, with years commensurate across planes.[5]

The Thran[]

The book "The Thran" gives dates of all events in the "The Time of the Thran" part of this timeline in relation to the Thran-Phyrexian War (9 years prior, 2 years prior, etc.). The date for the war itself is given in Apocalypse, where Yawgmoth says the war ended 9000 years ago. For this timeline, the Thran-Phyrexian War has been estimated to happen 5000 years before the Brothers' War. Consequently, all the events narrated in the books are here reported following the same description provided in "The Thran", and under the summary indication of happening around -5000 AR. So all dates in the "The Time of the Thran" section are correct in relation to each other, but they could be some years off in relation to the other dates on the timeline. Note that in Invasion, Tsabo Tavoc said the Thran-Phyrexian War ended 6000 years ago. Since Yawgmoth was there, his statements have been taken over those of Tsabo.

The Art of Magic: the Gathering - Dominaria places the 'Time of the Thran' at 'up to around -5,000 AR', ending with the Thran-Phyrexia War, placing this date officially at about -5000 AR.[11]

Arabian Nights[]

The dates of the events of Arabian Nights comic and life of Taysir are roughly estimated, based on The Story of the Battlemage Ravidel, which places the birth of Taysir soon after the end of the Brothers' War. Refraction of Rabiah happened still in his infancy. He left the plane as an adult, about three decades later (although it's only an impression of his age derived from the art in the comic). Some sources place Antiquities War comic after Arabian Nights, but one of them also reminds that in fact, the Antiquities War comic is a narrative made by Taysir after he was trapped in the Shard and researched the mysteries of this ancient conflict.

Duels of the Planeswalkers[]

Although it is not given a specific date, the 2014 Duels of the Planeswalkers takes place just before Rise of the Eldrazi, placing it in roughly 4557. It contains bios on each of its planeswalker characters, listing their ages as: Garruk Wildspeaker, 36; Liliana Vess, "over 200"; Jace Beleren, 23; Ajani Goldmane, "appears" 30; Chandra Nalaar, 20; Nicol Bolas, "over 20,000"; Dack Fayden, 30; Elspeth Tirel, 24 (sparked at 13, squire at 17, knight at 20); and Nissa Revane, "appears" 28.

For this timeline to work, Elspeth must have been born in 4532, Chandra must have been born at an earlier time of year in 4537, and Daxos must have been born at a later date that same year. In 4545, Elspeth sparks at age 13 and meets Daxos on Theros before he turns 8. She squires on Bant in ~4549 and is knighted in ~4552. In 4557, Duels of the Planeswalkers occurs after Chandra has turned 20, but before Elspeth has turned 25. Theros happens in 4559 after Daxos has turned 22, while Elspeth is 27.

Homelands events[]

The WotC Timeline places it between 3800 and 4130. The timeline in the Homelands comic gives no dates in the AR calendar but gives a chronology of events that takes 600 years, far longer than the 330 years in the WotC timeline. Placing 3800 as the 'Present Day' of the Homelands timeline is the only interpretation of the official timeline that works with what we know of The Kami War. Because this event has to happen at least 1,000 years before 4306 AR (according to Bolas in Future Sight), the only reasonable assumption is that the 'current' date for the Homelands timeline is 3800, not 4196. Serra's death has been placed as 3780 AR, confirming this interpretation of the timeline.[11]

Kamigawa dates[]

In Time Spiral, Nicol Bolas states: "The schism became a source of misery before Karona’s War by a millennium or more. When poor, mad little Ravi rang her terrible bell and the Garden ceased to exist, the echoes of that destructive chime reached far and wide, all the way to the Talon Gates and the rift they attend. The tolling of Ravi’s chime opened the rift wider and deeper, extending it all the way across the cosmos to another realm." This line establishes The Apocalypse Chime has happening AT LEAST a millennia before the Karona's War (3306 AR). It also had to happen after Ravi rang the Apocalypse Chime, placing it where it ended up.

The storyline of Kamigawa: Neon Dynasty takes place five years after Tezzeret burned Nashi's village, was mind wiped, and was picked up by Nicol Bolas, placing it around 4561.[91][5] Ten years earlier, he caused the Emperor's spark to ignite.[120] Twelve months after that, Kaito Shizuki's spark ignited when he was 15 years old.[92] The Wanderer was about the same age as him.[83] The set also takes place 1,200 years after the original block, placing the end of the Kami War between ~3261-~3361.[121][122][123][124]

The Reckoning of the Sages of Minorad[]

Many pre-revisionist events have been given in this reckoning, but they are often just plain wrong in revisionist continuity. The Fallen Empires comic says it takes place over a millennium before the Ice Age, while post-rev sources put it only 280 years prior to the ice. Another big event, the Planeswalker War on Corondor, is said to have happened more than a millennia after the gathering of the sages, but this would put it after the Phyrexian invasion, and since several planeswalkers that died during the invasion are major players in the 'walkers war this can be considered an obsolete date.

Most events have been given a post-rev date by WotC because they are tied to a set and thus on their official timeline (such as Fallen Empires and Homelands). The Shadow Mage, Wayfarer and the Planeswalker War had for a long time not been given an official date, but because we know how much time happens between them, we can deduce their post-rev dates: the War happens 70 years after Sandruu's banishment and Wayfarer in the same year as the war. The chapters of Shadow Mage each give the age of Jared Carthalion at that time, and since his age is given as 16 in Wayfarer, the placing of those chapters can be deduced as well. The Planeswalker War has now officially been given dates between 4195 AR and 4205 AR.[11]


The events of Mirrodin were a continuity problem. The flavor text of several cards in Mirrodin mention the events of the Mirrodin Cycle taking place millennia after Karn's disappearance from the plane.[125] However, the events of Planar Chaos make it obvious that Mirrodin took place before the Time Spiral Cycle. Karn states that the plane hasn't seen conflict in a century. However, it was stated that the rifts allowed Memnarch's delusions to become quasi-real.[126] So one can deduce that thousands of years played out in the golem's mind, while on the outside only a few hundred years have passed.


The D&D Guildmasters' Guide to Ravnica establishes the Ravnica year of the Guilds of Ravnica block as 10,076 ZC, placing the events of the original Ravnica block 76 years in the past. The guide also confirms that the Ravnican years are 365 days long. If 10,076 ZC is roughly equivalent to 4560, The length of Ravnican years must be roughly commensurate with Dominarian years for the original Ravnica Cycle to occur before the Mending.

In The Gathering Storm multiple weeks are mentioned as passing between Vraska arriving on Ravnica and the War of the Spark.

In Note for a Stranger, which itself takes place over atleast five days, Huatli mentions she has been on Ravnica for "two months", which came after spending a "few days" on Kaladesh. We know all this must happen after Huatli meets Saheeli in Rivals of Ixalan, but before they have already been reunited in War of the Spark. Comparing this to how much time is said to pass between Jace planeswalking from Ixalan to Dominaria (which happened before Huatli leaving Ixalan), and when Belzenlok is defeated (which is established to be the day before the War of the Spark), we can tell that Huatli probably arrived on Ravnica soon after leaving Kaladesh, and started dating Saheeli shortly before the War of the Spark.


In Homesick, Nissa states "But her friend—her best friend, her constant companion for two score years—couldn't answer." Nissa's Origin: Home is when she first awakens her animist powers, which would be two score (or 40 years) previous to Homesick. The Great Aurora occurs during Nissa's Origin, placing Lorwyn as occurring 40 years before Kaladesh.


The events of the Zendikar storyline can only vaguely be established thanks to Chandra's theft of the scroll in The Purifying Fire and Jace's experiences working as an agent of the Consortium to retrieve the scroll that Chandra stole. Roughly 3 years passed since Chandra acquired the scroll the first time, and Sarkhan Vol's presence tracking Chandra (apparently there for less than a year) indicates that the Zendikar story takes place after Alara as well.

While Chrandra recalls there having been between one and three years passing since last last visit to Zendikar when she returns in Battle for Zendikar, based on Elspeth's age when her spark ignites and she first visits Theros, Daxos's ages on both of Elspeth's visits to Theros, Elspeth and Chandra's ages given in Magic 2014/Duels of the Planeswalkers, and what Ajani did between the events of Theros and Kaladesh, one can calculate that close to three years probably passed. This is also consistent with Charandra's age durring the events of Magic 2014/Duels of the Planeswalkers and Kaladesh.


The timeline of Tarkir was altered when Sarkhan Vol traveled back in time and saved Ugin from Bolas.


Some of the pieces of side-content from the original Innistrad storyline are dated and take place between Ava. 699 and 719, with the only major crossover to the main story being the war between Geralf and Gisa Cecani, which begins after the burning of the Cecani manor in late Ava. 715 and is ongoing at the end of the story in Ava. 719. If the original Innistrad set takes place in Ava. ~719 and corresponds with 4558 AR, it would place Avacyn's creation and Ava. 1 in ~3840 AR. According to the Shadows Over Innistrad story "A Gaze Blank and Pitiless," Avacyn is said to have first appeared and killed Liesa and her flight "a thousand years" before 4559 (only 719 years after 3840 AR), but it is possible this number is an approximation. According to the story Unwelcome, Sorin has been a pariah of his family for "hundreds of years at least. Maybe longer," although in Promises Old and New he is stated to have not attended a vampire banquet in "over a thousand years." It took Sorin "six milennia" to come up with his plan to create Avacyn.[127] This places Edgar's ritual within a thousand years of -2160 AR, with his birth not long before.

Sorin sealed the Eldrazi on Zendikar "more than 6,000 years" before Battle for Zendikar block and by then was already "at least a thousand years old."[25] Assuming the sealing would have been less than 7,000 years earlier, this places it between about -2441 and -1442 AR, and Sorin's birth in or before -2442.

Children of the Nameless takes place approximately 1 year after the events of Shadows over Innistrad.[128]


Yahenni states that they have 54 days left to live in Born of Aether, which takes place the evening of the day Chandra, Liliana, and Nissa arrive on Kaladesh. Yahenni has 12 minutes left in In the Dead of Night, before gaining an additional 22 days through vampirism. Yahenni's penultimate party and passing away occurs at the very end of the story, making Kaladesh Block roughly 76 days from beginning to end.

Yahenni's party happened one month after the Gatewatch arived on Kaladesh. Tezzeret was defeated within two months of the Gatewatch ariving. The hour of devistation happens "a few weeks" after the defeat of Tezzeret.


Tishana feels Jace attempt to planeswalk twice, one the day of the race to Orazca and two month prior. Jace attempts to planeswalk three time. Imediately after ariving on Ixalan, fourty days later on the day he is found by Vraska, and "several weeks" later on the day of the race to Orazca. Thus two months must have passed between Jace being found and the race. Before leaving Ixalan Jace noted that Gideon had "been trying to foist a workout regimen on [him] for a year now," so it is possible that the entire Gatewatch era to that point had last a couple more months than estimated.


The 4561 AR approximation for the events of Throne of Eldraine: The Wildered Quest assumes that Will Kenrith and Rowan Kenrith sparked after the War of the Spark.
