“Ernanda Souza, did a phenomenal job, giving the exact notion of scale with children in the background and their body languages that demonstrate innocence. Furthermore, the art clearly shows that the danger that Shalai is protecting people from is very real. The character is looking directly at the player for a reason, and whatever that is, there's no need to worry, as Shalai is prepared to defend everyone. This card is a talisman that I want to share with the world,” he said. Sydney Adams, game designer of Wizards of the Coast.
