From the computer to the tabletop, this is all about games. Updated each week-end.
Scott Murphy has produced a series of illustrations for Magic: the Gathering, starting with the original Theros block, and is still illustrating cards today. Here are five of my favourites of his:
Secure the Wastes – Dragons of Tarkir
A group of once-Abzan followers still guard the desert sands in a Tarkir changed forever by Sarkhan’s time meddling.
Merchant Scroll – Magic Online promo
Another addition to my list of good card art that will never(?) been seen in paper as it has been used exclusively in Magic Online.
Ancestral Blade – Core Set 2020
The blade stands on an ornate mantelpiece, with the painting behind hinting at how it may have become a blade passed down through generations.
Aetherstorm Roc – Kaladesh
This magical creature glides through the skies of Kaladesh, feeding on the rich streams of magic there.
Abzan Beastmaster – Fate Reforged
This is the promotional version of the card, and only available in foil. I like both versions. In this one, the staff with its talismans suggest wisdom and experience, while the background shows his affinity with very large animals.
