I bet transcribing those tattoos was pretty unpleasant work after the first six months or so...

I can't see why this shouldn't be EDH viable. If your deck runs a lot of legendary spells (why wouldn't it?), he's going to draw you a lot of cards.

Deadly in Captain Sisay Commander, where he becomes pure card advantage. Most Sisay decks I've seen go for him as early as possible.

Man, I so want him to be good. He looks like a really cool dude.

Interesting, but very underpowered.

Gandhi here is good in the right deck. My Sisay EDH deck obviously has a home for him, he turns every nasty piece of work into a cantrip. This includes things like legendary equipment and enchantments.

They should have worded it 'whenever you play a legendary card, draw a card'.
That way you could cantrip off of lands, too.

I would hope that if I ever met the living embodiment of the world's history in person, he would allow me to draw more than one card.

the... history? Not, like, historian? "Hello, I'm History. Nice to meet you."

Name aside, he actually does very well in Kamigawa. Drawing cards whenever you play things is always good, and if you throw a Mirror Gallery in he can get you tons of card advantage.

Good card, but you'd really need to protect him. Dies too easy to your typical burn spell. Awesome art, though.
