Venser's Sliver sketch by Carl Critchlow

Smart and resourceful, Venser found himself a place traveling alongside the former planeswalker Teferi and the ageless artificer Jhoira. Gradually, Venser came into his own not only as an artificer, but as a master of teleportation magic. Today's
Aleksi Briclot was tasked with Venser's illustration.

Although this sketch does have the proper look for a blue-aligned wizard in Time Spiral Block, the creative team wanted to see more personality for this central character, and more of a sense of Venser's teleportation powers. Venser has the power to appear out of nowhere, warp through rifts in space, and pull other people and objects through the planar mist along with him—he should look formidable!
