The man called Taigam is known as Sidisi’s Hand, the personal enforcer of the Sultai khan. But Taigam was not always Sultai, and his former clanmates have not forgotten him.

To learn more about the Sultai, check out the Planeswalker’s Guide.

The Marang River flowed through Sultai territory, deep into the jungle and around many of their most illustrious palaces. Along the river, far from these palaces, were less regal settlements—homes of farmers and fishermen, built on raised wooden stilts and platforms. Although the marshy jungle was inhospitable to most, some had found the means to make a living, but only enough to scrape by. Their stomachs were as empty as their purses, and the small town of Kishla was in debt to the Sultai. They couldn’t remember if it was for taxes or outright extortion, but they knew that Sidisi’s Hand was there to collect. What the town could call its leadership was a small group of men and women who only were forced to get together and congregate when dealing with the Sultai.

Is any color supposed to have more or less problems with planeswalkers?

Black can destroy them directly. Red can hit them with direct damage. Green has the occasional Bramblecrush. White can Oblivion Ring them. Blue can counter them.

Narset????

In the fatpack booklet, it says something interesting about Narset.

'Some say Narset possesses a secret potential inside her, a power or calling that will drive her to a greater purpose, but she remains dedicated to leading her clan.'

Does this mean she could possibly be a planeswalker? That would be amazing!

My 2 best friends got their hands on thousands of Magic the Gathering Cards. My little brother let them sneak into my room while I was working.

HURLED INTO MY CLOSET, WEDGED IN MY LAUNDRY, LOCKED IN MY VIDEO GAME BOXES, SLOTTED IN MY DOORFRAME, STUFFED INTO MY PILLOWS, LODGED INTO MY KEYBOARDS, CRAMMED IN MY PANTS POCKETS

To prevent me from just tossing everything out the window, they hid my $50 $15 Elspeth Planeswalker somewhere in the mess.

This is ninjagrifon's doing.

Vraska - Early Concept

I didn’t realize it until recently, but Vraska, The Unseen was based off of a concept that I had pitched for the Golgari guild leader during the concept push. My goal was to make a gorgan that was sexy, modern and deadly.

I made concepts for a number of guild leaders, none of which were used. Though, a couple of those designs were REused later, Including this one. Aleksi Briclot improved on this design significantly to create the final art for Vraska. I love love love having someone so talented riff off of my work.

Sorin Markov is a vampire planeswalker and a master of sangromancy, a dark corner of black mana specialization. With this blood magic he can drain the lifeforce of other beings, place curses on enemies, and even possess the minds of others. Sorin Markov is the oldest living planeswalker except Nicol Bolas, though unlike Bolas he has dedicated his existence to following his whims, and this easy life of pleasure has brought him detachment and easy confidence. Having seen hundreds of planes over thousands of years, he has become a sort of bon vivant, seeking novelty and new diversions. But despite his fundamentally hedonistic nature, Sorin does feel the pull of more lasting concerns, and over his long life this tendency has resulted in an arcane schedule of engagements and forays to far-flung planes. As a result Sorin is a busy man, planeswalking frequently to pursue concerns known only to him. Sorin always seems to have business elsewhere.
