~Today, Wizards had provided us with a very cool Conflux desktop wallpaper. This art is to be used on the Conflux Fat-Packs which will be hitting the shelves in your local gaming store early in February.
The wallpaper shows us the legendary Nicol Bolas doing battle with the four Alara Planeswalkers - Tezzeret, Ajani Vengeant, Sarkhan Vol and Elspeth. These neo-Planeswalkers are joined together in a common cause of defating Nicol Bolas.
What is interesting about this is that one would have expected the dragon-loving Sarkhan to side with Nicol or at the very least, to be sitting on the sidelines in this conflict. Perhaps Sarkhan likes Jund just the way it is and has no great desire to have the Shards come together. Not sure if his Jund dragon buddies feel the same way about this however - I'm certain that Nicol would have made a solid argument about the vast abundance of prey on the other Shards to these Jund denizens. Just imagine - skinny Goblin or exotic Leotau for dinner ?
The only disapointment I have is that we just caught the Nicol Bolas artwork just yesterday.
