So a lot of people wanted Taigam to get a card. This attempt is obvious Taigam during Khans of Tarkir. With Sidisi, Brood Tyrant as the Khan though I felt Taigam needed to be rare and not fall too much into Sidisi's territory. As I believe Sidisi is pretty lackluster I had to downplay Taigam's ability limiting it to one card to the graveyard. I felt the ability represents tax collection, a task Taigam was depicted doing in at least one story. I contemplated making reference to Taigam's previous Jeskai training that we'd see in his Ojutai version for Dragons of Tarkir. Would you fellow card creators prefer to see Taigam's Jeskai training on his Sultai card?
