MtG artists: Victor Adame Minguez

Victor Adame Minguez is a relatively new artist, having debuted in the Battle for Zendikar set. Since then he has illustrated well over 50 cards and tokens. His art is mostly recognisable for its brightness, but there are some darker-hued pieces too. Here are five of my favourites.

Ajani, Adversary of Tyrants

This illustration from the 2019 Core Set does a great job of capturing Ajani’s fierce yet steadfast nature.

Atraxa, Praetor’s Voice

A much darker piece showing a corrupted angel of New Phyrexia.

Shalai, Voice of Plenty

A much brighter piece, this one showing an angel of Dominaria.

Goblin Welder

Just looks like a goblin using functional welder’s tools, until you realise the flame is coming from a captive serpent on the goblin’s left arm.

Vault of Catlacan

This is the reverse side of one of the double-faced cards from the Rival of Ixalan set. It shows a vault being looted after its guardian has been defeated.

    Huh, I had no idea that the same artist did both Adversary of Tyrants and Atraxa. that is pretty cool.

    He has a really nice style. The angel and vault are quality. I know almost nothing about the game but the artwork on the cards are great.

      The artwork was what originally attracted me to the game, and I still sometimes pick up cards only because I like the art
