It looks like we are trading Kithkin for animal/warrior people. The warriors actually remind me of the little people in Diablo II Act 3, except these people are regular size. Visually that would have been an interesting turn for shards, Kithkin of the bush. The animal people look better than the warriors in this illustration especially the elves on the left.
This is a really good collage of art so I’m assuming we are looking at elements from 7 or 8 different cards in shards. I wonder if the background is a land.
So breaking this down we have warriors with red accents. I’m assuming they will represent red. The elves obviously in green. The lion guy I’m going to assume is a white legendary creature or planeswalker. I say that based on my previous post with a similar creature named Ajani Vengeant. As for the cat people I’m going to guess they belong in black or red. I say black because the cat on the right is holding some sort of voodoo looking wand and red for the left guy who has a red tassle up top and seems to be making haste. My real question is what is going on with the teeth coming out of the giant snake with hair above the elves?
So what is up with the shards logo? Why are there are only three colors present. Does that mean we will only see three colors in this release. Black and Blue off on vacation? Seriously this is different from the logo I posted on August 6th. Maybe the logo is from an earlier draft and wasn’t updated. I does not have a polished look. We’ll see.
