IDW Publishing and Wizards of the Coast have been working together for a while with the Dungeons and Dragons comic, and now with the Magic: The Gathering comic series. One of the hooks with the Magic: The Gathering comic is an exclusive card for use with the upcoming Magic: The Gathering – Dark Ascension set.

The companies sent Major Spoilers the first look at the exclusive playable card.
