planeswalkers are often orphans.

Jane Wandering
Planeswalker — Jane
When Jane Wandering enters the battlefield or whenever you planeswalk, you may create a 1/1 black legendary Cat creature token named Woof.
— Planeswalk. If you planeswalk to a phenomenon or to an unstable plane this way, shuffle Jane Wandering into your library, then draw a card.
— Exile Jane Wandering. If you do, search your library for a Jane planeswalker card and put it on to the battlefield. Then shuffle your library.

after all, can you imagine? how hard it must be to keep track of a child.

harder to track still, the child who slips through worlds as though they were open doorways.

Zn'Noth Shattered Spire
Unstable Plane — Noth'Tar
(Whenever a player takes damage on an unstable plane, planeswalk.)
Life totals cannot become prime. (If a life total would become a prime number, instead it doesn't. The first ten primes are 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19, 23, and 29.)
When you planeswalk away from Zn'Noth Shattered Spire, exile all permanents with a prime converted mana cost.

reality is not quilted neatly. what horrors dwell in the frayed places?

nothing suitable for a child.

Zn'Noth Dead King
Creature — Demon Nightmare
Zn'Noth Dead King is indestructible.
16/4

Haunting of Shattered Spire
Legendary Enchantment
Whenever a card is discarded, you may pay . If you do, create three 2/2 black Nightmare creature tokens.
"The horrors of Noth'Tar remain a mystery, for lack of enthusiastic explorers."
—The Atlas Never-Finished, vol ix

no, certainly not.

some stories begin where they end.
many do not!
but ours does.
jane fell, and then she fell again.
she fell at right angles, at wrong angles, at non-angles.
the nightmares of Noth'Tar!
her heart screamed "away!"
and her spark listened.
her brain proffered no comment.


Court of Redglass
Plane — Manniq
When you planeswalk to Court of Redglass, you become the monarch.
:chaos: — When you roll :chaos:, the monarch creates three 2/2 Crystal Knight artifact creature tokens. They have first strike.

The Redglass Crown
Legendary Artifact
, : Discard a card at random, then draw a card.
Discard a Mountain card, : The Redglass Crown deals 3 damage to target creature and 2 damage to you.
The Redglass Crown is borne long only on the brow which resists its shattering.

jane appeared from nothing, screaming and foreign in the court of redglass. the crystalfolk, by unbelievable chance or undeniable fate, prophesied her arrival. that evening jane was crowned queen. the next morning, she had ceased her weeping. she would not speak for many moons. she would not planeswalk for many years. and she would not return to Noth'Tar until the end of her story.

Jane, Redglass Queen
Legendary Creature — Human
When Jane enters the battlefield, you may create a 1/1 white legendary Crystal Cat creature token named Woof.
If Jane would die, instead shuffle her into your library, then draw a card.
At the beginning of your end step, if you control fewer than two Crystal Knights, create a 2/2 Crystal Knight artifact creature token with first strike.
2/2

the right person in the right place can become anything. even the wrong thing.

(jan 4 edit: removal of pretentious line breaks; Woof is a token.)

I see you've discovered the sensibility of combining planeschase with planeswalkers. It's something of a thing I've not been getting to for a long time now myself you know.
Unstable Planes are a great twist on Planechase.
The story fragments between cards really makes this a lot more fun than the average ICD too.

This is incredibly evocative writing. I would love to read a short story by you.

The cards and story are perfect complements, and I'm left here wanting more. The imaginary-friend cat creature token is a great piece of flavor. Great work.

Don't take this the wrong way but I liked it better with the line breaks.

Any chances of more to this story? What leads Jane to leave her throne for the plane that terrified her as a child?

I'm getting kind of an "Alice in Lovecraftland" vibe here.

I can dig it; looking forward to more.

Combining planeswalkers with planeschase is a project I started fiddling around with but ended up dropping.
