Zendikar Art Spoiler 3

If you, the blog reader, anticipated another full frame Zendikar art spoiler, good on you! More specifically, if you anticipated seeing two full art swamps from the upcomming Magic the Gathering expansion set today, give yourself a star. If this comes as a complete surprise (after seeing the Plains and Islands on Monday and Tuesday), perhaps you should reevaluate your medication dosage.

Recap from the two previous posts . . . Apparently, within Zendikar Booster Packs (from Booster Display boxes and Fatpacks), one may expect to pull full art basic lands ! Quite a few people I know now are thinking of picking up a fatpack specifically for the 40-card land pack (8 of each land), just so they can get their paws on the full frame arts. If one were to get just a Zendikar Intro Pack however, expect to pull the traditional half-art basic land card - which in my opinion is still very kewl.

Watch your keyboard for drool as you check out these Zendikar Swamps by Jung Park and Vincent Proce.

Fist Swamp, by Jung Park. Not bad at all. I think it could have used more cowbell (you know - some stagnant fetid water). I imagine that the two columns shown here were actually full obelisks at one point of time and are now pitted and corroded from this unpleasant environment.

Second Swamp by Vincent Proce. Soooo sweet. Two Words . . . 'Swamp Balls' !!! We can see the requisite obelisk in the foreground slowly being encased by roots but the highlight here really are those swamp topiaries. I should think that tumbleweeds would look much like these root balls in a world with slightly lesser gravity than earth's.

Unfortunately, I have some out-of-country biz to take care of so please go outside and play and not expect posts for Thursday and Friday. See y'awl soon.

The swamp balls image by Vincent Proce looks freakishly like a Flying Spaghetti Monster,
