The Temur Frontier embodies green, red and blue. The clan is led by Khan Surrak Dragonclaw. They value savagery, and their symbol is the Claw of the Dragon.
Brave to punch…
Innistradi-Dominus is quickly becoming my new favorite tumblrperson. This series on the five clans of Tarkir is absolutely excellent. Not going to spamreblog all five entries though. Follow the links!

One of the very few girls at my LGS here. I’m the only girl during an FNM, usually. I personally post and reblog Vorthos stuff. Also a mod over at femtg.tumblr.com, which combines feminism and magic. Also active on the MTGSalvation wiki. Come join us, we need more sourced material. Catching up on the actual novels. Somewhere in my lifetime.. May I recommend magicexpandedmultiverse.tumblr.com for the ultimate vorthos resource?
Banners of the Clans
The other clans, however, seem to use only one design each.
The Abzan use a pole with a bar tied on the top to support their standard.
The Jeskai had a simple banner - their insignia on a red field - held at the top by a bar. The bottom of the banner might be tied to the vertical pole where the bar is connected.
The Sultai hang their banners in the same way, although they use a more lavish cross to hold their flags. Perhaps they’re made of gold or at least are covered with gold leaf. Also, their banners seem to reflect light. Shiny.
The Temur have the simplest flag - tattered cloth painted with their symbol on the center. The hang their banners on wooden unpolished crosses.
You can find the Mardu’s numerous banners here.
Well, in a harsh world like Tarkir, you gotta have banners to find allies and enemies, especially in battle. Have you chosen your clan yet?
I kind of hope to see this cycle reprinted in Khans of Tarkir. It also seems to fit the five different factions pretty damn well.
The Abzan Houses. Endurance. Main color is white. Dragon Scales gives vigilance and a bigger thoughness boost. Perfect for endurance.
The Jeskai Way. Cunning. Main color is blue. Dragon Wings gives flying. Very cunning.
The Sultai Brood. Ruthlessness. Main color is black. Dragon Shadow gives fear and a power boost. So ruthless, defenders don’t dare.
The Mardu Horde. Speed. Main color is red. Dragon Breath gives haste. Ultimate speed ability.
The Temur Frontier. Savagery. Main colour is green.Dragon Fangs gives an equal P/T boost and trample. Run right over the little critters, you beast.
Ok. But it won’t be reprinted. Because fear is out in favour of intimidate. It would also be weird to have Dragon Fangs go to Temur while Sultai’s symbol is the fang of the dragon. Or Dragon Wings to Jeskai while Mardu’s symbol is the wing of the dragon.
The 5 clans of Tarkir. I added in their name, colors, and trait below each picture for easier quick reference.
I was looking for something like this. Tumblr delivers. When the five symbols have some good quality versions, I’m sure someone will make a similar thing with those. I love symbols
he is coming, hopelessly-vorthosian
I think I might die of cuteness overload.
So the elusive Amphin got another card in M15, again with a flavourtext quote by some person called Gor Muldrak and their work Cryptohistories. I hope we’ll see more of the Amphin one day. From WotC: “The amphin are a race of lanky, shrewd, partially aquatic humanoids who can dwell either in the briny depths or in the overgrown shallows. Little is known about their civilization as yet; time will tell whether we see more of them in the future."
“The amphin have long built their society in secret. While surface dwellers squabbled over trivial borders, they patiently expanded, building their ammonite temple-caves. Now amphin priests eye the shore, and amphin hunters gird for war." -Gor Muldrak, Cryptohistories
“There are those who do not believe in the existence of the amphin. This seems somehow to be of their own design." -Gor Muldrak, Cryptohistories

Jalira and Yisan encounter Hastric and rob him. Amonst the robbed possessions is a book that leads them to finding the Slivers.
The pair, still moving as slivers, came to a larger chamber with alcoves lining the ways, in which strange biomasses were tended by lesser slivers. A sliver rode the wind with wings there, spiraling down from the top of the chamber to the bottom. As it passed by another sliver, that sliver, too, grew wings and momentarily hovered. Jalira and Yisan felt the wings pop out of their backs, felt the new parts form from their bodies, and knew how to fly as if they had done so their entire lives. As they moved toward the center of the hive, however, they lost their wings. Sometimes they grew extra blades or began to secrete venom, which disappeared as they moved inward.The hive is all and all is the hive.
A wild variety of creatures in the art, P/T boosts and trample? Paragon of Eternal Wilds surely evokes Overrun. She’s a repeatable mini-overrun on a stick.
The art on all five Paragons is beautiful, with the coloured banners and all.
If you have been missing out on Forgotten Lore, why not start with the newest video about a set and setting that was excellent considering flavor, but very bad when it comes to gameplay. Homelands ofcourse. Watch it for clips of a hilarious commercial from the 90s in which an Angel and a Minotaur battle. I dare not say if it’s Serra herself.
This is silly and cute. Equip a Hornet Nest with a Viridian Longbow, let it shoot at itself and presto! 1/1 flyers with deathtouch for days. Complete flavourfail though, but hey, can’t win them all. At least in isolation it’s oozing with flavour. Throw it in front of a 15/15, huge monster destroys the nest, get 15 angry hornets!
The Chain Veil features an upside-down planeswalker symbol.
Well spotted. And well played, Wizards.
Interestingly, I think a lot of folks, myself included, have been assuming the Veil is an artifact of black magic that boosted Liliana’s skillset specifically. Looks like that was a hasty assumption.
That…. is awesome!
This is actually pretty hilarious.
