Spells of the Weatherlight Crew

Posted in Arcana on December 6, 2007

By Wizards of the Coast

TheWeatherlight Saga had a strong impact on the flavor of sets from Visions through Apocalypse. Over those years the crew of the skyship Weatherlight changed, but many characters are recognizable as being part of that famous crew.

Just about every one of the crew had one or more cards themed to their characters in name and art. Check out these crew members and the cards that were associated with them. (Note that most of the characters were not mages, so it is not assumed that they were able to cast these spells.)


Crovax the Cursed
Ascendant Evincar
Crovax, Ascendant Hero

Note that Crovax never had a card named "Crovax's [Whatever]." Tempest's Evincar's Justice probably doesn't count, since it depicts Volrath as evincar, which was before Crovax's reign.


Ertai, Wizard Adept
Ertai, the Corrupted
Ertai's Meddling

See also: Ertai's Familiar, Ertai's Trickery.


Gerrard Capashen
Gerrards Wisdom
Gerrard's Verdict

See also: Gerrard's Battle Cry, Gerrard's Command, Gerrard's Irregulars.


Hanna, Ship's Navigator
Hanna's Custody


Jhoira of the Ghitu
Jhoira's Toolbox
Jhoira's Timebug

Jhoira was captain of the Weatherlight before Sisay.


Karn, Silver Golem
Karn's Touch


Mirri Cat Warrior
Mirri's Guile
Mirri the Cursed


Multani, Maro-Sorcerer
Multani's Presence
Multani's Decree

See also: Multani's Acolyte, Multani's Harmony.


Orim, Samite Healer
Orim's Chant
Orim's Thunder

As a healer, Orim is on plenty of white spells. See also: Orim's Cure, Orim's Prayer, Orim's Touch.


Rofellos, Llanowar Emissary
Rofellos's Gift


Captain Sisay
Sisays Ring
Sisay's Ingenuity


Squee Goblin Nabob
Squee's Toy
Squee's Embrace

See also: Squee's Revenge.


Starke of Rath

Starke never had a spell with his name in the title, but is depicted in several cards throughout the Saga. Bandage, for example, shows Starke being bandaged by his remorseful daughter, Takara, after she blinds him.


Tahngarth, Talruum Hero
Tahngarth's Glare
Tahngarth's Rage
