I'm a big fan of Magic: the Gathering, infected with the Pony Mindvirus as of April 2012.Found an MtG crossover fic here, and liked it enough that I decided I should make an account.

After Starlight Glimmer's misadventure beyond the Magic Mirror, Twilight Sparkle creates an artifact that will allow its wearer to travel between planes of existence without allowing excess magic to leak from one world to another and upsetting the delicate balance of worlds.

In doing so, however, she soon discovers more about herself and the spark that awakened the Element of Magic than she could have ever anticipated, and learns of a secret that Celestia had been keeping from her all her life.

Stranded in the world-spanning city of Ravnica, Twilight Sparkle must now seek to understand herself and the strange new plane of existence she's found herself in, and come to terms with her own role in Equestria and the Multiverse.

Interesting concept :trixieshiftright:
You had my curiosity, but now you have my like :moustache:

Edit:

Why doesn't it show in the like-ratio when i click the thumbs up?:rainbowderp:
(I'm on my phone)

Interesting I can't wait for more.

Probably because there haven't been ten votes yet. The ratio doesn't appear until that threshold is hit. It's supposed to help authors get their stories read for the first few hours after upload since readers won't be able to see the upvote-downvote ratio (and thus have to read for themselves to determine if they like or dislike the story).

With MTG as the crossover is there a particular edition or more the lore of the books?

8369280

The fic will mostly follow the current-ish MtG canon, sometime after Oath of the Gatewatch but before Kaladesh.

8369283
Cool so I will have no clue as to what's happening last real set I had was the ravnica cycle... Least I'll know the basics

After Oath but before Kaladesh you say? So Shadows Over Innistrad/Eldrich Moon? That will be an interesting situation for Twilight to deal with, if she actually goes to Innistrad that is.

Side Note: I am interested to see what color/colors of magic she will use

I'mma track this. Because I hope it becomes a real thing.

8369380

It won't strictly take place during Shadows over Innistrad, since there's still an unspecified amount of time that takes place between that and Oath of the Gatewatch, but it'll be after the Gatewatch has been formed but before anything plot-relevant that would turn Chandra's attention back to her home plane.

Well now. You certainly have my attention. I look forward to seeing where you go with this, especially given most planeswalkers' attitudes towards easy interplanar travel.

Also, the sixth color is apparently octarine. Who knew?

Before I read this, I got a few questions:

While I realize the description says she's in Ravnica, when does this take place, block wise?

What color is Twilight?

Is she going to join the Gatewatch?

8369526

Also, the sixth color is apparently octarine. Who knew?

Ha! I was wondering who the first person to get the Discworld reference would be. For reference, the "octarine" mana is actually colorless mana, not a seperate color: it's magic in its raw form, unaltered by the fabric of planar reality. It just looks like it has a color that exists outside of the visible spectrum because most mortal minds can't quite comprehend it without assigning it a color-like property.

For the record, I'm a huge fan of your Elementals of Harmony series, and believe it or not it's actually the fic that convinced me to start reading fanfiction at all to begin with. In a roundabout way, you're responsible for my entire fanfic career (not technically a career, but you know what I mean), and it really means a lot that you like my work.

8369555

Twilight's colors are primarily blue and secondarily red and white, but I'll elaborate on this later. In terms of chronology, the fic takes place after Oath of the Gatewatch but before Kaladesh. I haven't quite figured it out exactly but it'll likely take place before Shadows over Innistrad as well, depending on how I can make the timeline work.

8369598
Thank you for answering two of my questions, but the third remains. Is she joining the Gatewatch? Or is that spoilers?

Consider my interest piqued.:trixieshiftright:

Before I read this, what is the Gore tag for ?
And how bad does it get ?

Ooh, interesting! Two of my favorites, together at last. I look forward to seeing how Ravnica (and the greater Multiverse) react to a sapient, talking, magic-using, friendship-espousing, horned pegasus. (Cause unicorns don't exist on Ravnica, but pegasi do.)

Also, Twilight's secondary in red? I don't see it. Primary in blue and secondary in white are obvious, but red's a little harder for me to see.

8370002

At one point, the story involves the Cult of Rakdos. You can't have them around and not have at least some hint of gore. I'll post a warning in the author's notes as a preface before the next chapter, because that's probably the worst it'll get.

8369780

Eh, probably not. She's got her own problems to worry about.

the multiple incidents caused Equestrian magic leaking into the other world

caused by Equestrian magic

allow the worlds to be placed back in balanced.

You're really having fun writing this, aren't you?

8370840
Ajani's part of the Gatewatch, so no worries there.

Betting time! Who's the first fellow Planeswalker that Twilight will find herself bumping into?

Ahh, much better. Great work on the rewrite! :twilightsmile:

Twilight Sparkle, Alicorn Ascendant 1RWU

Planeswalker — Twilight

+1: Tap up to one target creature. Up to one other target creature gains prowess until end of turn.
-2: Discard a card, then draw two cards.
-6: You get an emblem with “whenever you cast an instant or sorcery spell from your hand, you may return that card to your hand as it resolves” and “you have no maximum hand size.”

4

The lack of flavor text annoys the hell out of me. Why isn't there an OC tag?

8372558

Planeswalker cards generally don't have flavor text.

8372558
Planeswalkers don't have flavor text, as far as I know. Not enough room.

I like this conversation between Twilight and Celestia much better. I'm kind of sad that my previous message got deleted though. :raritydespair: Oh well, I can always just remake it...

Twilight sees the world as an Eldrazi sees it.

Man, Urza (I assume it was Urza, given your use of the word "legacy") was a dick. Not as bad as Nicol Bolas though.

Good job Twilight, you planeswalked right in the middle of a Rakdos circus act. Just be glad you didn't waltz in on the middle of a different act.

Ral Zarek seems to be doing pretty well. We'll find out how well he does with a pretty purple pony princess.

Hey, maybe Twilight can hang out with the Gatewatch at Jace's place? Maybe the Gatewatch can hang out with Twilight at her place in Equestria!

Also, I wonder how the plane of Equestria works, considering that you pretty much confirmed that the EQG world is canon in this fic. Maybe its two parts of on plane in this instance?

Vast improvement over the previous version!

Twilight, a Rakdos circus act was far from the worst place you could have appeared. After all, Rakdos and his followers fall under lawful evil. Sometimes.

Celestia: "I didn't tell you anything, because I feared you would leave Equestria for good!"

Twilight: *leaves the plane of Equestria and nopony will ever know to which world of the multiverse she went*

GG Twilight, GG... no seriously, her friends, her student, her mentor, her family. Everyone has now no clue what happened with her and will forever wonder where she went. Or so I think, please don't write this kind of plane/time travel fic where Twilight comes exactly in this moment back to her Equestria (IF she does, who knows what will happen) when she disappeared and no-one is the wiser that she even disappeared at all.

That would be so anticlimatic if especially this confict of Twilight disappearing is the very thing Celestia wanted to prevent from happening from the start.

Very nice story. I will follow it. :twilightsmile:

8372558
Also, why would he use an OC tag if he isn't using any OCs?


Anyway, I cannot wait to see where this goes. As soon as I read circus tent, I knew what was going on. And of course Twilight immediately catches an Izzet's eye. It's only natural.

consider me intrigued you have my attention
and now u have my like and favorite

When I had made you a princes,

princess

When Twilight’s senses returned, she had found herself in an environment vastly different from the secure confines of Celestia’s throne room.

Since in this version she is planeswalking from her bedroom instead of the throne room, I think a comparison to her bedroom would be more apt.

+1: Tap up to one target creature. Up to one other target creature gains prowess until end of turn. -2: Discard a card, then draw two cards. -6: You get an emblem with “whenever you cast an instant or sorcery spell from your hand, you may return that card to your hand as it resolves” and “you have no maximum hand size.”

hey thats pretty good

8373180

Yeah, that was a line I forgot to alter from the previous version, good catch. :twilightblush: I've gone ahead and fixed it already, thanks!

This sounds interesting. Before I begin reading, how much do I have to know of Magic: the Gathering to not get lost?

8373197

Most of it will make more sense if you're already familiar with the Magic story after Oath of the Gatewatch, but it's not strictly required: most of the fic will be told from Twilight's perspective and she doesn't really know anything about the MtG storyline either, so you'll probably learn what you need to know from what she learns.

Okay, liking the rework much better. Hahahaha, Celestia is gonna lose her shit. Oh, and the Elements being capable of bopping an oldwalker, and Urza at that, should be very interesting.

Looking forward to Nicol Bolas eating the friendship laser.

Silly Zennistrad. This is just Beta. The next version will be Revised, followed by Fourth Edition. :trollestia:

In all seriousness, much improved from before. As I said earlier, let's just hope Twilight survives Ragnica long enough to find her way back home.

i would not be surprise if twilight end up meet up with discord some how who able to move between the planes with easy but just him self.

Ral Zarek! My favorite! :D Izzet is my spirit animal.

I really like the story so far! I've only ever seen one other good MTG/MLP crossover and it was never finished. :(

The Elements wouldn't work on Bolas. Even post Mending he handed the Gatewatch their asses. And they took down the Eldrazi.

8373944

They wouldn't work anyway because they're technically not around anymore.
