Dack Fayden, Planeswalker thief, has stolen a valuable artifact from Ravnica, the Ancient Fang. Using his abilities to learn the artifact's secrets, instead he witnesses the destruction of his hometown through the eyes of the villain that committed the act: Sifa Grent. Dack sets out to track her down at her next destination: Innistrad. In Innistrad, Dack confronts Sifa, but allows her to slip away at the last moment. He follows her trail but soon loses track of her over different planes. But, thanks to the Planeswalker Sorin Markov, Dack's discovered Sifa's plane of origin. The price for this information is steep, though: Dack is forced to hand over the Ancient Fang in exchange for Sorin's information. Knowing the likely consequences if he were ever to return to Ravnica, Dack forges ahead and heads to Grixis, where he learns that Sifa is working for the demon-dragon Malfegor. Narrowly escaping from the monster's clutches, Dack returns to Ravnica, where Sifa's plan is beginning to unfold...
