Last year, Wizards of the Coast premiered the awesome CGI-animated War of the Spark trailer to celebrate the release of the Magic: The Gathering set, and fans were amazed to see the Liliana's epic confrontation with Nicol Bolas while the cover of Linkin Park's In the End  (feat. Fleurie & Jung Youth) plays to give us that unforgettable emotion of a saga ending.

On June 3, Scotland's Royal Television Society announced the winners of various media awards, and the War of the Spark trailer from Axis Studios has won the award for Animation and VFX.

You can watch the trailer below:



The trailer originally premiered at PAX East 2019's War of the Spark panel, and it was first revealed online at

To this date, it's still the most epic MTG trailer ever released, and hopefully WotC will release more trailers as epic as this one. 

Congrats to the War of the Spark trailer for winning the Royal Television Society Award for Animation & VFX!
