MtG artists: Peter Mohrbacher

Peter Mohrbacher completed some of Magic’s most memorable card over the past few years. From the gods of Theros, to planeswalkers, and to legendary creatures, the chances are high you will have encountered his work.

Animar, Soul of Elements


This legendary creature appeared in one of the Commander decks and is highly sought after. The artist made a playmat with a larger similar creature he nicknamed ‘Animar’s uncle‘.

Tibalt, the Fiend-Blooded


Tibalt was a popular character with an unpopular card. The art supplied by Peter Mohrbacher is essentially the sole explanation for the character’s appeal.

Grimgrin, Corpse-Born


Another legendary character, this time from the Innistrad set.

Pharika, God of Affliction


I had to hold myself back with the Theros gods and just choose one. Pharika is the one I chose, and towering serpent-bodied woman, Pharika can both curse and cure.

Erebos’s Titan


This creature from the Magic: Origins set will sadly be the last card from Peter Mohrbacher, save for a pair in Battle for Zendikar. I won’t put words into the artist’s mouth here, but you may wish to read his explanation about why he won’t be doing any more Magic cards.
