Let's talk Talrand.

Talrand, Sky Summoner

Talrand, Sky Summoner is an important character, not to mention being a neat Legend. But forget about that for a minute, because today we're going to talk about the drakes behind him. The original sketch for Talrand naturally focused on the Sky Summoner himself:

Neat, right? But in the final version, the drakes got more detailed and developed their distinctive coloration:

Now, let's go on a tour of Magic 2013. They're the same kind of drakes you get in Talrand's Invocation, unsurprisingly.

And you can also see very similar drakes on the Magic 2013 Drake token card! Naturally, Talrand, Sky Summoner; Talrand's Invocation; and the Drake token were all illustrated by Svetlin Velinov.
