WotC Check out Magic: the Gathering's Tiamat

We've known for a while that WotC is releasing D&D-themed Magic: the Gathering cards, as a set called Adventures in the Forgotten Realms. Artist Chis Rahn has shared his Tiamat.

"Been looking forward to sharing this one for what seems like forever! Tiamat, for Mtg's D&D: Adventures in the Forgotten Realms set. This was one of those assignments that I felt incredibly lucky to get. I hope you enjoy it half as much as I enjoyed painting it!"

Very nice. It's rare to see a dragon depicted at such a huge scale. I particularly liked the touch of the poor guy about to be gulped down by the black dragon head, just to drive home the size difference.
 





This art is amazing. I want to buy a print of it for my wall.


There is a good chance that you can.

This set has the potential to be either really great, or really bad....and I'm here for both!

Though, it probably won't be really bad.

Ultra Pro doesn't make prints (or posters) . . . they make accessories for Magic like playmats, deck boxes, and sleeves. They already offer a D&D playmat with Tiamat art, although different art than featured in the OP.

Well, nevermind then! Curious what exactly a wall scroll will end up being . . . . just a long, skinny poster, or something more fancy?

I'll admit that I'm bad at meta, but good at just grinding my way to platinum 2, what's week about a 7/7 that also likely inserts five more dragons at the same time?
A 7/7 body isn’t worth anything if it just immediately eats a removal spell. For a creature to be worth playing competitively, it needs to either make an immediate impact, protect itself, or be aggressively under-costed for its size. Now, her tutor effect is undoubtedly splashy, but how good it really is will depend on what options you have to search for.

Given that Power Word Kill targets a non-angel, non-demon, non-devil, non-dragon, I expect we will see a lot more of those creature types at lower cost and rarity than usual, to keep it from being too flexible in limited. So, I expect Tiamat to have some good targets for sure. Whether or not that’ll be enough to make an impact in standard or historic though, I have no idea because I don’t know what those metagames are like. She’s definitely much too slow for modern or legacy because you have to actually cast her to get the tutor effect.

Let’s be real though, she was made for Commander. And there, she will be very good.
