A very heartfelt thank you to :iconrav0004: for making the awesome custom set symbol.
===============================================================================

Because my custom cards are meant to showcase and promote the awesome artwork, none of the artwork belongs to me. I've listed the artist's name next to the paintbrush at the bottom of the card to give the artist due credit.

Original artwork created and owned by:

:iconsandara:

Original art can be seen here:

Temeraire by sandara

I highly recommend checking out their other work.

The artist has granted me permission to use this artwork.
===============================================================================
This is a custom card created with Magic Set Editor, which can be downloaded for free here: magicseteditor.sourceforge.net…
===============================================================================
Thanks to Wizards of the Coast for creating the game, Magic the Gathering. Magic The Gathering is owned by Wizards of the Coast. www.wizards.com/Magic/Summoner… Please do not print or attempt to sell this card.
===============================================================================
My approach to card making is art oriented more than anything else because that's what first drew me to the game. When designing a card, my objective is to balance flavor and utility in such a way that it fits into the game seamlessly and would be fun to actually play with.
===============================================================================
I’m a perfectionist at heart, so I gladly welcome any suggestions you have. All of these cards are WIPs (works in progress). But please try to keep your feedback constructive and don’t argue with me TOO much because I’ll stick to my guns on some points.

Instead he should have lifelink, for to manna exile creature cards from opponants graveyards and gets fed +1/+1 counters for each creature. Like this, WB, Tap: Exile a creature card from an opponents graveyard and put a +1/+1 counter on .Pikachu angry Tatsukisha, Sun's Shadow

It's way op indeed, but I loved the concept. It would fit my Orzhov mono-block so nicely.
Imo, you could remove the two protections, since you'll still be able to null them with his ability, but would take a few turns, and make him 4WB, same cost as the new fatties for Orzhov on Gatecrash.
Still, I want it ._.

Since a lot of people have said something, I've revised it. Upped cost in CMC and color but also raised his P/T by 1/1 and took away the protection.

hey, I really would like to print this card to play it with my friends, but I can't manage to get to the normal size with gimp. Can you upload a version of Tatsukisha which is like 800 x 1000 ? or even greater?

Very sweet card, I like how all the dragons are red and this one is completely differentXD That makes it special ;)

did you try right clicking on the image and selecting "view image" should give you a larger version to download. I don't have anything larger than that.

When I had read its abilities, I thought it was owerpowered card. Then I looked at others comments and saw I wasnt alone with such feelings.

In my opinion, the problem isnt in its abilities, but in its ability-cost and manna-cost. It need just adjustment. Then i can imagine it as real MtG card and some guys having it in their decks.

And very nice set symbol, really admirable.

That card is mind-boggingly broken. 4/4 flyer for 5 is already above the curve, and then you throw on protection from two of the three heavy removal colors and an ability to cut out any remaining removal. Any Esper control deck would run 4 of this, drop it turn 6, and go on to win most games.

Hey hey, I just had a great idea! You know what's a white and black ability that fit's Tatsukisha's ability (by protecting him from dying and undoing his nevermore ability) as opposed to persist or lifelink(which don't help his ability)?

Protection. White has protection from Black all the time, and Black has protection from White all the time. What are the two most common colors for destroying creatures? White and Black. It's near perfect.

Protection from White and Black gives him protection from stuff like himself, who is both colors. I think the wording is more like "Protection from white /and/ from black"

The last ability is quite strong if you know what kind of deck your opponent uses. In Commander he'll paint a HUGE target on you cause you can stop players from using their generals. DAMN!

i love the flavor of this card, if he was an actual creature he'd be an AMAZING general for EDH. though the fact that he has persist is incredibly broken

RAV0004 Featured By Owner Feb 7, 2012  Student General Artist
If you want Tatsukisha's first ability to be once per turn consider making it Morbid and wording it like Reaper of The Abyss (since Morbid triggers once per turn).

Alternatively, drop the whole "once per turn" limiter to begin with. I know that black has a lot of sacrifice abilities (like Viscera Seer or Vampire Aristocrat) but... well, Tatsukisha only has to be killed once for all of that to drop down the drain anyway. If the game's progressed to the point where you've banned ALL of the answers that ALL of your opponent's could possibly have than they're just really shitty players. There are so many kill spells in the game that for you to ban all of them is just completely and utterly ridiculous it's insane. First there's the EDH staple board wipes: Wrath of God, Damnation, Black Sun's Zenith, All is Dust, Mass Calcify, Plague Winds, etc etc. That's not even counting individual kill spells like Doom Blade. At five for Tatsukisha's first cast plus three mana per Nevermore (Nevermind the deaths needed to trigger his untapping)plus the kill-switch for untapping that's 23 mana (and that's /just/ the board wipes). If you can afford 23 mana before anyone draws one of those spells then they didn't put enough in their deck.

Oh, I like the mechanics on this one.

Something minor, but Persist needs to be capitalized.

well it's actually supposed to be on a completely new line with reminder text but I'm taking a liberty in saying that we already know what it does and that it can go with the regular keywords now. :)

RAV0004 Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2012  Student General Artist
Incidentally, is there a reason you gave him persist? It doesn't benefit any of his other abilities, since if he dies he won't have the haste to use his ability on your opponent's turn, not to mention when he re-enters play he counts as a different creature and the list of stuff he's Nevermore'd has reset to 0. (his ability also says "whenever /another/ creature dies" and I'd just thought I'd point that out.)

I thought you were going to make a 4 card cycle, with RW RB RU and RG. Are you going to be doing a 10 card cycle instead?

oh, hmm... I guess so. Traditionally dragons have been red, but there are dragons in all colors. It may have been more conservative to just do those 4... but now that that I've started...
