This art depicts Kamahl holding the Mirari, an artifact that grants wishes, even if they are unwanted. His inner desires were to be more barbaric or a better fighter or something. This caused him to go on a rampage and kill most of his family, while seriously injuring his sister, Jeska, Warrior Adept. This led to her being captured by Braids, Cabal Minion, who turned her into Phage the Untouchable. It's kind of an important card, storyline wise.

Aaron's Random Card Comment of the Day #13, 10/13/10

If I was Kamahl, Pit Fighter--a 6/1 hasty brawler--it would certainly be my desire to have first strike. (I see now, upon pasting this comment into Gatherer, that someone else has already made this joke. Good one, lesserimmortal.)

Seriously, folks, there’s not a ton going on here. The only reasonably interesting factoid I could think of while staring at this card was already covered in a Magic Arcana I wrote 8½ years ago, but that’s long enough ago that I suppose I’ll retell it:

The Odyssey style guide depiction of Kamahl had him with short-cropped reddish hair, so that’s how artist Dave Dorman painted him for this card. But when Kev Walker’s magnificent art for the aforementioned Kamahl, Pit Fighter card came in, he had Kamahl as totally bald, and the creative team all felt that was a much better look for the red protagonist. That meant some nimble Photoshop wor... (see all)

Does anyone else think he looks like Stone Cold Steve Austin in this card art? Or is it just me?

If I was a 6/1 I'd want to be on the side of the guy with Rage Reflection

What is with the rating of this card?
Is a enchantement that only costs 2 mana and gives a creature first strike and +3/+0 if you have threshold, what you almost always have

You should have left the hair in the picture so that it would appear Kamahl's desire was for Propecia. :D

First strike and +3/+0? Awesome. Especially given red's love of high power and low toughness.

Not so bad, also for the synergy between +3/+0 and first strike.
