A hunter to the core, and adept at summoning savage creatures, Garruk Wildspeaker thrives on pushing himself to greater and greater limits in his quest to be the ultimate predator. But now, he faces his most dangerous prey: A fellow Planeswalker.
Specializing in spells that reanimate the dead, corrupt the living, and unlock power from death, Liliana Vess possesses beauty that belies her necromantic power. What will happen when a force of raw, untamed nature confronts a being consumed by dark and demonic urges?
Garruk vs. Liliana is loosely based on the webcomic The Hunter and the Veil, in which Garruk attempts to stop Liliana from obtaining a dangerous artifact known as the Veil. Garruk summons beasts to fight for him, whilst Liliana uses her necromantic powers, eventually obtaining the Veil and cursing Garruk with its powers before planeswalking away. The story was meant to continue in a planeswalker novel named The Curse of the Chain Veil, but it was never published. A webcomic called The Veil's Curse, however, shows Garruk attacking Jace Beleren in an attempt to find Liliana, and Liliana deciding to use the Veil's power to kill some demons to whom she is indebted.
