Title: Impulse
Artist: Bryan Talbot
Year: 1996
Medium: Mixed/Acrylic, on illustration board

Created for the Magic: The Gathering Visions set, Impulse is an iconic piece by fantasy artist and comic/graphic novel illustrator Bryan Talbot. Released in 1997 by Wizards of the Coast, as part of the Mirage block, Impulse was a long-time staple of many decks across formats, and at one point was essentially “power-level errata’ed” for being too strong as originally printed (the “shuffle your library” clause was removed).

Every piece of original artwork purchased from MTGKingpin includes a Certificate of Authenticity guaranteeing its authenticity and legitimacy as advertised. Most original artwork was purchased directly from the artist, and has a short chain of custody, and trackable provenance.
