Scent of a Gamer

From the computer to the tabletop, this is all about games. Updated each week-end.

MtG artists: Filip Burburan

Filip Burburan is one of the current Magic artists who paints in the traditional rather than the digital medium. With over 50 cards illustrated as I write this article, his brush has certainly been busy! Here are five of my favourite cards.

Goblin Guide

Goblin Guide, Modern Masters 2017

Would you cross a rickety bridge with this goblin? I’m good, thanks.

Greenbelt Rampager

Greenbelt Rampager, Aether Revolt

This rowdy elephant is getting into the spirit of Kaladesh’s aether revolt.

Ilharg, the Raze Boar

Ilharg, the Raze Boar, War of the Spark

Four mono-coloured mythic gods in War of the Spark represented the old gods of Amonkhet, killed and resurrected to service Nicol Bolas. The fifth god, Hazoret, survived. The red god was Ilharg, and old god of Ravnica worshipped by the Gruul clan.

Inzerva, Master of Insights

Inzerva, Master of Insights, Heroes of the Realm 2017

This is probably the least known of Filip Burburan’s cards. Inzerva was released in 2017 as part of an internal thank-you series of cards which Wizards distributes. There aren’t many of these in circulation, so not many people realise that Ugin and Nicol Bolas aren’t the only dragon planeswalkers.


Tarmogoyf, Ultimate Masters

The third artwork for this mainstay of the Modern competitive format, this art shows a creature with far too many teeth.
