Scent of a Gamer

From the computer to the tabletop, this is all about games. Updated each week-end.

Clan leaders of Tarkir

The five clans of Tarkir each have their own charismatic leader who embodies the ideals and ethos of that clan. Each is represented by a card in the game to further show their strengths.

Anafenza rides into battle on a chariot, and believes in grinding her enemies into dust. Literally. Also, I’m not the only one who sees a resemblance to Felicia Day.

The Jeskai are the martial arts specialists of Tarkir, and their leader is no exception to this.

The Mardu clan are raiders who specialise in swift, sudden attacks. Their leader is a giant orc called Zurgo, also known as ‘Helmsmasher’ though he smashes plenty of other things as well!

Regal and cruel, Sidisi the naga rules her clan in its jungle holds. The Sultai are a clan of rogues and necromancers who make pacts with demons to further their power.

Surrak of the Temur, art by Jaime Jones


Known as the ‘dragonclaw’ Surrak rules the Temur clan by strength. The Temur inhabit the snowy northern lands. Surrak once killed a bear by punching it really, really hard. That bear now forms part of his clothing.
