Myles The Brother's War would have to be at the top because it perfectly re-energized the Magic: The Gathering storyline, made it make sense (those early comics and novels were occasionally good but, especially the comics, were often just fantasy cliches), and Jeff Grubb was one of the few consistently good authors that Wizards hired.

Andree I am a total Noob..I am just learning MTG and wanna read some of the side stories...where should I start? :)

Myles Well, I've been out of the MtG arena for a long time. I haven't read anything new since Legends II! I would start with a book from your favorite set. The old chronological storyline started with Brother's War/Colors of Magic, but newer novels are more standalone I've heard.

Jeff Grubb or Clayton Emery were my favorite authors.

Barrin Narro Awesome! Well Done Myles

I have collected all the MTG books and short stories(as in Duelist Magazines) and I am planning to read through all of them

BTW that is exactly what I did among Chinese MTG community! yet I did it only last year!
