This card depicts the Dark Portal being opened for the first time by Medivh.

From Wowpedia:

The Dark Portal was created through a joint effort between the human mage Medivh, possessed by the Dark Titan Sargeras, and the warlocks of the orcish Shadow Council led by Gul'dan as a means to allow the Old Horde, under the demonic influence of the Burning Legion, to invade the world of Azeroth. Nearly every draenei prisoner who still lived was brought to the base of the Dark Portal. At the moment the ritual began, Gul'dan drained all of their life essences in an instant, giving the massive burst of power needed to cross such a large distance. The Portal bridged the cosmic distance between the worlds of Azeroth and Draenor, and was at first only large enough that individuals might pass through it. Gul'dan immediately dispatched scouts through the Portal in preparation for the coming invasion. After the Portal was widened, the armies of the orcs poured through it into the unsuspecting Kingdom of Stormwind, beginning the First War.
