This occurred to me today...

If, in canon, WE the players are Planeswalkers and our library represents the spells and magic at our disposal, then it can be surmised that the set you were introduced into the game with is your "home Plane" and at that moment you Planeswalked and began your journey.
For example, if you began during Worldwake, you would be a Zendikar native.
I began during Magic Origins, so I'm not sure what mine would be. But yeah. :)
What's your home Plane?? :D
Well what were in the contents of your first deck? you could use that to see which plane you are from?
I started playing properly just after Kaladesh came out however I mainly used and liked SOI and EM cards so I would say Innistrad. However, my dad did originally teach me using fallen empires and ice age cards so maybe dominaria with an early planeswalk to Innistrad.

My first game of magic I played was Extended Goblins vs Extended Tron. So, either way, Dominaria, more than 10 years ago.

Dominaria Baby! (Mirage/Visions) then there was Rath, sweet sweet Rath. Wish we could go back there...

SP3CTR3_chelts 5 color good stuff :3
All I remember was I cracked a lot of packages from Walmart. I got an Aurelia, the Warleader and a Keranos, God of Storms from buying random assortments of booster packs and those old school battle decks or whatever they were called.

well, innistrad i guess.\
first deck was red black madness... and i got supes hyped when anje west came out :) i already owned all the cards to upgrade it, just took the cards from my first deck... :)

Neat idea. Starting in 7th Edition, that puts me on Dominaria.
I feel kind of bad for those who started in Portal Three Kingdoms. Earth, even Earth from one of history's more interesting time periods, is a rather dull homeplane.

Revised puts me on Dominaria. I miss those starter decks of 5 color random stuff.
November 8, 2019 10:04 a.m.
I suppose a lot of planeswalkers will be from dominaria with it being the most visited plane :P
TypicalTimmy i cant really apply a plane to 5 colour good stuff :P

Altough I started in Extended with Dominaria decks, the first deck I built was standard - Lorwyn/Morningtide Mono Black Rogues.

Cool idea. I started in Revised also, so Dominaria, but then I stopped around Ice Age and came back just before RtR... and then again during Theros and have stayed ever since this time.
But, just to throw a little creative twist in there, consider this: A planeswalker's first appearance is never their homeplane, it's always the first plane you randomly planeswalked to. Therefor you could say your first 'walk was to the set in which you started playing, and your homeplane could still be a mystery/secret. Maybe the first deck you built could represent your actual homeplane?
In my case, I would say I started on Dominaria with either mono-red goblins or mono-black thrulls (not sure which, and neither of those themes point to another plane)... but since I returned for good during Theros, maybe that is my actual homeplane?
TypicalTimmy: do you remember if your first deck had a majority of cards from one set or another? That could be a clue as to your mysterious past.
Mj3913: on that line of reasoning, you obviously planeswalked from your home of Rath to Dominaria when your spark activated. =D
Boza: and it looks like you were actually born on Lorwyn, before you sparked and 'walked to Dominaria... like 10 million years ago or something, lol.

I’m a relatively new player :(. Innistrad from shadows is my home plane.
November 8, 2019 3:45 p.m.
Pull out your ichor and slather up baby, cause I'm from New Phyrexia
November 8, 2019 7:46 p.m.
Starter 1999 ?
My wife would be Alara, and she reintroduced me during New Phyrexia !

When I learned to play, it was a Gruul deck based around original Borborygmos, I guess Ravnica is my home plane. My spark awakened during the Battle for Zendikar though, that's where I started investing in my own magic adventure.

I was an original player and stopped right after ice age. Then came back during ixalan. But from what I mainly run its definitely innistrad.
November 9, 2019 7:23 a.m.
I began right in the middle of Stronghold. So that mean's I'm from Rath. I stopped during the Urza's Saga but recently came back in Eldraine.
November 9, 2019 7:47 a.m.
Technically my very first game was Fall 2005. So idk what that would be. Magic Origins is when I started actively playing.
November 9, 2019 8:17 a.m.
I started collecting my own cards during Urzas Saga, my first deck was a lifegain built around Serra Avatar . Looks like I'm from Serra's Realm
November 9, 2019 12:24 p.m.
I started with Oath of the Gatewatch, so, Zendikar.
November 9, 2019 12:39 p.m.
I guess that would put me somewhere on Alara. That could go really good (Esper, Bant) or really bad (Jund, Grixis)
