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. Dack finds Ingrid Reichart, a courageous Cathar, in the middle of a fight against the vampire minions of Baron Ekhart Von Falkenrath. Dack and Ingrid escape back to her hometown, but Ingrid's father wants Dack gone. Dack opts to leave and continue on the trail of Sifa Grent, and Ingrid insists on coming along. When they arrive at Falkenrath Manor and find no trace of Sifa, Baron Ekhart let's Dack know that he's made a terrible mistake: she amassed her troops and began an attack on Ingrid's hometown. Dack races back and hopes he is not too late to save the day...
