List of Planeswalkers by Home Plane
Posted on Jan. 21, 2017, 2:57 p.m. by DemonDragonJ
Now that planeswalkers are a card type in this game, and are major characters in the story, I believe that it would be good to have a list of them by their plane of origin, to make it easier to keep track of them all. Therefore, this thread is such a list (which I probably should have made long ago).
I will include only planeswalkers who have been depicted in cards in the game, since there would be too many to list if I also included those who have not yet been depicted in cards. I will first list all the planes known to have currently-depicted planeswalekrs in alphabetical order by name, and then list the planeswalkers from that plane, in alphabetical order by name. If the planeswalker is from a specific region of the plane or belongs to a specific faction on that plane, I will list the region or faction in parenthesis, after their name.
Ajani Goldmane (Naya)
Domri Rade (Gruul)
Ral Zarek (Izzet)
Sarkahn Vol (Mardu)
Kytheon Iora/Gideon Jura
What does everyone else say about this list? How did I do with it? Have I missed any planeswalkers or incorrectly listed their plane of origin?
I could've sworn there was another thread similar to this one on this website. However, after 30 seconds of not finding it, I gave up.
But here's the link to the complete list of planeswalkers: http://mtgsalvation.gamepedia.com/List_of_planeswalkers

Eiti3, that list is very comprehensive, but does not list them by home plane, which was my main goal for this thread.
Also, as new planeswalkers are added to the game, I shall add them to this list, so is there any way that this thread can be made a sticky, so that it is always at the top of the page?

It has been stated that Kaya is not from Fiora. Source. The lore on her can be found in the articles at the end. They say she's not from Fiora in the first one, I believe.

Part of the problem with this list is for some walkers where we first encounter them is NOT where they are from and we don't always know where they are from.
For example, until Theros we didn't know that's where Gideon was from. We would naturally assume he was from Bant. Additionally, some planeswalkers choose to make a home on the first plane they walk to meaning that could throw things off as well.
Also, you are missing Bolas

When you say "depicted in cards," I assume you mean ones that have their own Planeswalker card, and not just creature versions, right? If not, Slobad, Goblin Tinkerer was a planeswalker for about 5 minutes or so! Jeska, Warrior Adept, Jaya Ballard, Task Mage, and Grandmother Sengir (Ravi Sengir) also have cards!

I'm sure by cards, you specifically mean with the card type "planeswalker"? Also, I'm relatively sure Karn was made in Tolaria, if you're going into specifics on each plane.

Phaetion, I did not know that, so I shall edit my first post to reflect that information; thank you very much.
metalmagic, yes, I am specifically referring to characters who have been depicted on planeswalker cards, so the charatcers whom you mentioned do not qualify for this thread.
wbroomhead, thank you for that information.

As Ohthenoises has pointed out, Bolas is missing. I'm glad this list is here, though! Great job!

Koth isn't from mirrodin.
See this is the problem like I mentioned before. Koth CREATED mirrodin while he was already a planeswalker.

Ohthenoises, Karn created Mirrodin, and Koth was born there, centuries later.

That's what I get for trying to read cards at 12.30 am. Misread Koth as Karn, apologies.

Is there a way to keep this thread at the top of the page? I will be updating it every time that a new planeswalker is added to the game, and I do not wish to search for it whenever I need to do that.
