Hey guys! Showing off my playmat combination of all of the Khans (that took far, far longer than it should have to reach a half-decent composition). I’ll be playing on it this weekend at the pre-release (presuming Inked Playmats is as awesome as I’ve heard).

Seriously though, is there somewhere I can buy this? :0

You can contact me on Deviantart @ deems.deviantart.com , or email me at nickfairdesign@gmail.com :)

Magic: the Gathering - Khans of Tarkir Races

EFREET

The homeland of the efreet is outside Jeskai territory in an inaccessible mountain range called Qadat, the Fire Rim. Unlike most Jeskai, efreet are never born into the clan. Instead, they make the choice to leave their home region and come to Jeskai territory once they are reach adulthood. Efreet who choose to embrace the Jeskai Way are outcasts from their own kind and are no longer welcome in the Fire Rim. By becoming Jeskai, an efreet is embracing a life of martial discipline over all else. They will not talk about their former lives, which is why Qadat continues to be shrouded in mystery.

Jeskai scholars maintain that efreet are drawn to the Jeskai for the concept of bloodfire, but they believe the discipline necessary to attain it is completely outside their nature. According to these scholars, efreet must set aside their inherently destructive nature before they can truly seek enlightenment. The Jeskai efreet are exceptional warriors and battle mages. In the occasional battles with other clans, they are often in the vanguard of the attack. There have always been efreet who embrace the Jeskai Way, but in recent years, their numbers have been increasing. In the past, most Jeskai efreet gravitated toward the trickster school. That seems to be changing, now that Narset has efreet in her personal guards, and efreet are seen frequently in the Sage Eye Stronghold.

Khans of Tarkir: Pre-Release!

This weekend contained nearly 24 hours of constant Magic: the Gathering. Why? Because, everyone, it’s time for the pre-release of Khans of Tarkir. 

First up: the Midnight (12:01) pre-release. I went Abzan at my LGS, and came equipped with enough D6 to outlast my entire army, as well as my custom playmat. Compliments were off the chain, my ego felt awesome.

With crazy amounts of anticipation and friends around, I open the box. Promo : Siege Rhino, aka Danny McHorn as I came to call him, who was ostentatiously good, even if he immediately ate a removal spell. Super happy to have him. Plus hey, I got a poo die!

Hi Tumblr followers! Ever wonder what my inspiration for my art style is? Well, I did one of these, but much smaller, ages and ages ago, so I decided that upon seeing one by Klar (#5 on this map), I’d do another. 
As you can see, it’s pretty big.
Some of these sources are from when I was in my early teens (such as Aido’s Fallen at #2, Hellsing at #4, etc), while some are for my later teens, such as Dresden Codak, Mucha, and a lot of the comic art. In general, I’ve got a big dichotomy between clean cartoon and dirty but realistic, which is why my art tends to be all over.
But i love glow effects!
