Story

Gideon now bears the reforged Blackblade—a soul-thirsty sword he used to vanquish the demonlord Belzenlok and help free Liliana from her contract—which should prove useful in the upcoming battle.

As founder of the Gatewatch, he also bears an oath to work together with his companions to defend the Multiverse... an oath that has led them into a final, deadly conflict with Nicol Bolas
