Shaper Tishana, also known as the Voice of Thunder, is a wizened shaman of the River Heralds on Ixalan.


Tishana is the eldest and most powerful of the Nine Shapers.[1] She claims leadership over every band. Though her magically amplified voice can drown a pirate ship or scatter a vampire band with a single word, her own people find her a warm and kind elder.[2]

Tishana temporarily joined up with Huatli in their race to prevent Kumena from gaining control over the Immortal Sun.[3][4] After saving Kumena, when he was thrown out the Tower of Trumph, Tishana was one of many who joined the scramble for control of the powerful artifact.[5][6]
