Haha still one of my favorite cards, though he isn't that rare I always use him when I can. Seriously impressive rendition of him, though I gotta say the card art doesn't quite do this work justice.

Stay awesome!

According to the MTG website, that weapon is called a sural, which is described as a three-bladed whip with the sharpness of a blade
