Scent of a Gamer

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

Arta Monday: Garruk Wildspeaker

Planeswalker cards first appeared in the Lorwyn expansion for Magic. In some ways it was curious this had taken so long, since planeswalkers themselves had been central drivers of magic’s story and background. With a new card type to showcase, gamer acceptance was key, and the ‘Lorwyn five’ walkers, as they c=have come to be known, were each illustrated by Aleksi Briclot.

Garruk lives in the woods, prefer animals to people, and is generally a grumpy character whenever we meet him. His popularity is not entirely due to this first art, but it’s also not unrelated.
